India: Slowly Down The Ganges

On this trip we focus on the day-to-day beauty of rural India and its people. At Wild Frontiers we believe it is more rewarding to visit the villages of India, experience the pace of life and culture of the locals and witness first-hand the life that the majority of Indians live, away from the regular cities on the tourist trail.

In central India on this unique tour you will experience a combination of village life, wonderful mountain scenery, the tranquil world along India’s holy riverbank and the hustle bustle of some of her most vibrant city centres. From Delhi to Kolkata (formerly Calcutta), via the Himalayas and the Ganges, this is a wonderful trip that will stay with you for a very long time.

Highlights:

  • Walking in the foothills of the Himalayas
  • Spotting tigers at Corbett Tiger Reserve
  • The historical cities of Lucknow and Allahabad
  • By river to Varanasi
  • Kolkata, India’s cultural heart

  • Full services of a Wild Frontiers Tour Leader with local guides and drivers
  • 14 breakfasts, 15 lunches, 15 dinners (typically in local restaurants where viable)
