PLEASE NOTE: If you’re after a relaxing, breach-sprawled holiday, don’t come on this tour. This is a tour for adventurous chaos-embracers who love all things colour and flavour.        In the culture shock that is India, we’ll take you to the Taj Mahal and SO much more- from secret meetups with Delhi professionals to a river cruise along the Ganges where you can witness sacred prayers, celebrations and burials. After the hectic vibrancy of India, it’s then onto the deep tranquility of Nepal for some downright breath-taking scenery. This means trekking the foothills of the himalayas and breathing in fresh mountain air that re-energises the soul like a thunderbolt of caffeine. It’s an exhilarating tour of total contrasts, one that will have you waking before sunrise and receiving an intense traffic-dodging education, yet we guarantee you won’t stop talking about it for years.

 

  • Explore Delhi’s rich history, religions and bustling street life
  • Volunteer at the local Gurdwara and learn how to roll the perfect roti
  • Drink vintage cocktails and mingle with young Delhi professionals at an exclusive meetup in a secret speakeasy bar
  • Watch the sunrise over the Taj Mahal
  • Walk the old streets of Jaipur and visit Amber Fort and City Palace
  • Glide along a Ganges River Cruise during sunrise
  • Catch an overnight train across India
  • Go trekking in Nepal
  • Relax and unwind in laid-back Pokhara
  • Learn to cook a damn good curry with a local in their home
  • Party the night away in Kathmandu

Itinerary

Day 1: Dive in to Delhi

Namaste and welcome to India! Your guide will be eagerly waiting for you as you step off the plane, ready with a flower garland to whizz you straight to your first hotel to freshen up. At 14.30 there’ll be a quick group briefing to officially meet your Flash Pack family for the next few weeks, before an afternoon tour of Delhi. Delhi is a complete commotion of crazy sounds, smells and sights so its vibrant chaos will be an awesome shock to the system! Immerse yourself in the riot of activity for as long as your jetlag can handle, then head back to the hotel to chill before dinner at a local restaurant with your fellow Flashpackers.

Day 2: A rickshaw-dogding walking tour of Delhi followed by Delhi secret supper club

After a light breakfast at the hotel (you’ll only need a light breakfast to save space for later!), we’re taking you on a walking food tour of Old Delhi. Prepare to have your mind and tastebuds blown as you weave through the city’s spice-infused alleys and market stalls, experiencing urban India at its most intoxicating (watch out for those monkeys, cows and rickshaws though!) Then dine like a king at the palace of Heritage Haveli – the most magical setting to enjoy a traditional curry. After your leisurely lunch, you’ll be given an in-depth introduction to India’s main religions, Hinduism, Catholism and Sikhism, and learn how they coexist. Walk off some of the day’s calories in the early evening with a fascinating walk with street kids organised by Hope Project. After dinner we’ll text you with the location of a cool speakeasy bar where you can mingle with local Delhi professionals at an exclusive Secret Tipples Club (tourists are not normally allowed, but we have insider access!)

Day 3: Your palace awaits in Jaipur

After breakfast you’ll wave goodbye to India’s bustling capital and head out on the road to Jaipur – an experience not for the faint hearted! Forget what you think you knew about roads, and expect fellow traffic-weavers to come in the shape of cows and camels alongside Bollywood-blaring trucks, cars and revving motorcycles. Arrive in Jaipur ready to feel like royalty as you check in to your exquisite hotel, where you can spend the rest of the day topping up your tan by the shaded pool, and exploring the Rajasthani interiors and beautifully carved balconies of this unique hotel. You won’t ever want to leave.
