Trek through the Himalayan foothills and catch a glimpse into the lives of Nepal’s highland villagers. Star-gaze and tuck into a sunset dinner at a lodge overlooking the snow-capped Annapurna peaks. Raft through the jungle lowlands of the River Seti and camp out in safari-style tents. Dazzle your senses on a Delhi street food safari, and see the splendour of the Taj Mahal at sunrise. Stay at a series of spectacular hotels, including a Jaipur palace and a boutique hangout in Kathmandu with a rooftop infinity pool 

 

Please note: if you’re after a relaxing, beach-sprawled holiday, this adventure isn’t for you. Instead, we’re giving a shout-out to intrepid chaos-embracers who love all things colour and flavour. From mouth-watering curries on the backstreets of Delhi to exploring the Hollywood location of the Chand Baori stepwell, prepare to go off the beaten path and immerse yourself in this dynamic two-week escape.  In the culture shock that is India, we’ll bed down in decadent Jaipur palaces, witness temple chanting rituals and meet the photo-bombing monkeys of Amber Fort. Swapping hectic vibrancy for Himalayan peaks, we’ll then pop over to tranquil Nepal – and some seriously stirring scenery. We’ll trek through the foothills of the Himalayas, passing by remote villages framed by emerald valleys, and breathing in mountain air that re-energises the soul like a thunderbolt of caffeine. We’ll raft along the serene straits of the Seti River, stopping for a beach picnic and camping out in a safari-style retreat. We’ll gallivant our way through the jungle lowlands of Damauli and the sky-high horizons of Dhampus. We’ll marvel at the clear blue waters of Lake Phew, and drink in the Kathmandu skyline from our vantage point in a rooftop infinity pool (no more than a Flashpacker deserves). Here lies an exhilarating foray 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.

Itinerary

Day 1: Dive into Delhi

Take a private airport transfer to your sleek hotel with a pool, day spa and salon. Gather for an afternoon briefing before free time for your first taste of Delhi. Toast your new Flashpackers and guide over dinner in a local restaurant

 

Namaste and welcome to India! Arrive before 2pm and your driver will be waiting for you as you step off the plane, ready to whizz you straight to your first hotel. This afternoon there’ll be a quick group briefing to officially meet your guide and Flash Pack family for the next few weeks. Then feel free to explore the vibrant chaos of Delhi. Its frenetic sounds, smells and sights will be an awesome shock to the system, so dive right in! Immerse yourself in the riot of activity for as long as your jet lag can handle, then cool off by lounging by the hotel pool. In the evening, we’ll gather for dinner at a cool local restaurant for your first real taste of Indian food.

Day 2: Rickshaws and street food

Join a food safari around Delhi, dodging rickshaws, cows and crowds to get off the tourist trail and discover the city’s hidden culinary hot spots. Feast on lunch at the palace of Heritage Haveli before visiting a beautiful Sikh temple

 

After a light breakfast at your hotel, we’re taking you on a walking food safari around 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!) This is a veritable fiesta of flavour and colour, as we veer off the tourist trail to discover Delhi’s culinary secrets. Then for lunch, come pull up a pew at the palace of Heritage Haveli and savour the delights of Indian cuisine in this magical setting. Afterwards we’re heading to the stunning Sikh temple of Gurudwara Bangla Sahib, one of Delhi’s most mesmerising sights. Then the evening is yours to do whatever you like in this dynamic city.

Day 3: Your palace awaits in Jaipur

Hold onto your hats as you experience your first taste of a road trip, India-style, by travelling to Jaipur. Check into your spectacular palace hotel – once the estate of a Jaipur nobleman, and now your decadent new home. Wallow by the pool, book an Ayurvedic massage or knock back a glass of Chandrahaas in the ornate and colourful restaurant

 

After breakfast you’ll wave goodbye to India’s bustling capital and head out on the road to Jaipur – an experience not for the fainthearted! 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 palace hotel. Spend the rest of the day soaking in the rays by the shaded pool, and exploring the decadent interiors and beautifully carved balconies of this unique retreat; once the country pad of an Old Jaipur nobleman. As well as the pool, there’s also Ayurvedic massage, yoga and meditation at the hotel spa, or you could take a mooch around the pristine palace gardens. Alternatively, grab a glass of saffron-coloured Chandrahaas – a herbal liquor unique to Jaipur – while soaking in the majestic décor of the palace. You won’t ever want to leave.
