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