Our Tour features the following locations
DELHI: The largest mosque, the biggest temple, honky auto-rickshaws; it’s easy to distinguish Delhi. The city has been at the centre of the Indian civilisation for centuries and a major seat of power ever since the Mughals built their capital here. Modern Delhi presents a mix of colonial-era architecture, Mughal forts, and mausoleums, ancient bazaars, glitzy malls and world class restaurants. It often feels overwhelming, but given a chance, it always grows onto you. Be sure to visit Humayun’s Tomb, a 16th-century Mughal wonder inspired by the iconic Taj Mahal and Lodi Gardens, the best spot for sunsets in Delhi. There’s also the Hauz Khas Village, a throbbing hub that gained popularity with its Open Nights when those narrow alleys are transformed into cultural wonders, adorned with lights and decorated with streamers. There really is no better place to discover Delhi’s rich culture and mingle with its locals.
CHANDIGARH: Chandigarh is among the top destinations to see India at its absolute best. The city is clean, beautiful, glamorous and immensely cosmopolitan, and the food here is worth dying for (butter chicken anyone?) Each sector in the city is pedestrian-friendly with stunning boulevards, beautiful gardens and ample of lakes for added effect. The shopping here is great, and you always have all kinds of nightclubs, bars and restaurants to choose from. India’s first planned city does justice to its popularity, a standing symbol of peace and serenity in a country where major cities are always expected to be chaotic and noisy. Some of the top things to see and do here include the Rock Garden, Rose Garden, Sukhna Lake and a trip to the neighbouring hills for an overdose of nature. For a peek into the Indian culture, don’t miss out on a play at the Tagore Theatre.
SHIMLA: The capital of Himachal Pradesh is everything you’d expect from a bustling Himalayan town. It has a penchant for presenting some of the best weather in the country and awe-inspiring scenery which attracts visitors from far and wide. The Mall Road, Shimla’s main street, is home to a bustling bazaar, incredible car-free experiences and maze-like alleys that are full of colonial-era relics. For a unique adventure, head over to Jakhoo Hill, the highest point of Shimla. The place really does have some of the most stunning views of the surrounding peaks and pastures. Sunrise and sunset views of Scandal Point are equally amazing. Adventure lovers cannot miss out on Kufri and Chadwick Falls either.
MASHOBRA: About 10 kilometres from Shimla is a quaint little town called Mashobra. Started by the English when they established Shimla, Mashobra has since grown and houses some amazingly beautiful spots that as yet have not been crowded out. To begin with, up the mountain is an enchanting little meadow called “The Talai” by the local inhabitants, and the road leading to this meadow meanders alongside the now rundown estate of the Maharaja of Faridkot.
