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


Tour Includes:
  • 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)
  • Drinking water throughout
  • On this tour we will use trains, boats, jeeps and mini-bus coasters
  • 15 nights accommodation (9 in hotels, 2 on board an overnight train, 2 camping and 2 in cottages)
  • All entrance fees, sightseeing, excursions and activities as per the itinerary
  • A carbon-offsetting contribution to Carbon Clear (if booking international flights through WF office)

Staying in Srinagar, take a shakara through the old town, along the Bund. It's not on the normal tourist circuit and is fascinating.
