India & Nepal Unveiled

15 days from £824 (was £969)

Mughals to mountains from Delhi to Kathmandu

From the sacred waters of the Ganges to the dizzying heights of the Himalayas, adventure, spirituality, and life-changing experiences await on this 15-day group tour. It’s as much about the small moments, as the show-stopping sights – chatting cricket over a cup of fragrant chai, lighting candles in the evening aarti ceremony, and sharing the back seat of the bus with the locals (and their chickens). That said, with the dazzling Taj Mahal, Varanasi’s atmospheric ghats, and Jaipur’s Pink City on the menu, the iconic attractions come thick and fast as well. Dine under desert stars with Roma cameleers, watch the sunrise from a stunning hilltop temple, bathe in Varanasi’s holy waters, see Bengal tigers in the wild, and spend two nights in a homestay in rural Nepal. You won’t come back the same.

Highlights include

Taj Mahal
Village homestay
Sunrise temple hike
Delhi tour
Momo cookery class
Night train experience
Amber Fort
Pokhara Lake
Pink City tour
Lakeside bar

Accommodation & Meals


All your accommodation is included on this trip. 11 nights will be in simple twin-share rooms, 1 night on an overnight train and 2 nights in a homestay. You’ll stay in a variety of well-located hotels and guest houses, including a 200-year-old haveli, a sleeper train (an experience in itself), and an authentic homestay with the Tharu tribe in Chitwan National Park, where you’ll sleep in private cottages designed to emulate traditional village architecture, eat in the communal hall, and be completely immersed in the community.

Occasionally some nights on this tour will be multi-share (4-6 group members sharing a room) and most accommodation will have shared bathroom facilities. Single rooms may be available at an additional cost, with the exception of the overnight train.   

Lots of our travellers are solo travellers, so when you book with us, we’ll pair you up with a like-minded roommate of the same sex. Our trips are great for couples or friends as well - just let us know you’re together, so we can be sure to put you in the same room.


1 lunch is included on this trip. You’ll have the freedom to eat wherever and whenever you like the rest of the time.

Food in India is cheap and delicious. While most people living outside of India think of rich, saucy curries when Indian food is mentioned, it’s so much more than that. From paratha to dosa, and pakora to biryani, the options are endless. If you’re plant-based you’ll be well catered for too, with more veggie options than just about anywhere in the world.

Nepalese cuisine brings together a range of influences from its neighbouring countries. Generally healthier than most other South Asian food, Nepalese dishes are all about chunky veg, lean meats, and salads, with a focus on local ingredients like lentils, rice, tomatoes, cumin, and chillies. Top tip? Don’t miss the momo.
