Highlights

Explore the vibrant streets of urban India, sail down the Ganges, get a glimpse of a traditional life in small villages, experience a jeep safari in Chitwan National Park, marvel at Nepal's mountain views.

Tour description provided by G Adventures

India is less a place to see than a place to do, and this fast-paced 15-day tour ensures you live every moment to the fullest. With other youthful travellers, you'll sail the Ganges, have the opportunity to take a jeep safari in Chitwan National Park, and breathe deeply in the Himalayas of Nepal. It's a mix of classics like the Taj Majal and backpacker faves like Pushkar wrapped up in a riot of colour. And we do the planning but leave the choice of excursions up to you. Don't explore South Asia – live it.
