15 days,Delhi to Delhi

Sail along the Ganges River, go whitewater rafting through exciting rapids, experience the spirituality of India during an evening aarti, marvel at the beauty of the Taj Mahal

What can you do with 15 days in India? Oh, this and that… Start with whitewater rafting in the foothills of the Himalayas and a visit to the Taj Mahal, a monument that redefines the word ‘monumental'. Next, hunt river dolphins (with your camera, of course), witness the moving burial ceremonies at the ghats of Varanasi and camp out along the shores of the mighty Ganges itself. From bustling New Delhi to beautiful Orchha and all points in between, this is India in a nutshell—a huge, wonderful, brightly-coloured nutshell.
