Some of the major highlights of northern India are the magical destinations of Delhi, Agra (famous for the Taj Mahal), and Jaipur. The region, bordered by the destinations of Kashmir, Ladakh, Himachal and Uttaranchal, encompasses several of the holiest pilgrimage centres of Hinduism in the Himalaya and on the banks of great rivers such as the Ganges.
A journey to northern India promises a showcase of some of the country’s finest cultural and architectural sights. Discover Rajasthan, known for its exquisite palaces and forts, marvel at the breathtaking Pink City of Jaipur, explore the maharajahs’ lakeside palaces in Udaipur and relish the opportunity to view the Mehrangarh Fort at Jodhpur.
An expedition to northern India wouldn’t be complete without a tour of Delhi or the ancient city of Varanasi, the religious capital of India, where you can partake in the Ganga Aarti, held on the banks of the River Ganges.
