This is an unusual journey across North India. Away from the typical routes and the sensory crush of India (well, almost), you begin your tour at Chandigarh. A picturesque train ride takes you to Shimla, summer capital of the British Raj, where nature walks are the best way to explore its delightful scenery in depth.
As you drive along the lower reaches of the Himalayas to Taragarh in the beautiful Kangra valley, prepare for spectacular scenery, tea plantations, orchards and villages dotted with ancient and medieval temples. This route is not without its surprises – a mere day trip takes you to McLeod Ganj, the headquarters of the Dalai Lama’s Tibetan government-in-exile. A train journey and a drive through the wheat bowl of Punjab takes you to Amritsar, home of Sikh community and their beauteous, most holy shrine: the Golden Temple. The tour introduces you to unanticipated facets of India.
