Delhi to Kathmandu Yolo Adventure

15 days,Delhi to Kathmandu

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.

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.

Don't explore South Asia—live it.
