From the Ganges to the High Himalayas

This wonderful trip starts in Delhi where your guide will introduce you to the mesmerising capital. From Delhi you fly to Varanasi which is the spiritual capital of India and the holiest of the seven sacred cities in Hinduism and Jainism. For many Varanasi is an important pilgrimage destination with many Hindu’s believing that death in Varanasi brings salvation. People come to the ghats in droves to wash away their sins and to cremate their loved ones. Life and death are confronted very publicly here, intimate cremation rituals and prayers are on-going providing the visitor with an intense and enlightening experience. From Varanasi you fly to Kolkata (Calcutta) which is the capital of West Bengal and and the former capital of British India. From magnificent Colonial architecture to mouth-watering Bangali cuisine you then go onto the high Himalayas to the Glenburn Tea Estate. With the Himalayas as your backdrop, this wonderful tea plantation retreat is an ideal place to trek, relax and unwind.
