This package tour is a perfect holiday cocktail! Starting off with the beautiful and historical site of Delhi and includes India's famous Golden Triangle (Delhi- Agra- Jaipur), this tour concludes in the tropical climate of Goa. Sun, sea, sand and plenty of famed Goan cuisine!

Delhi, is one of the fascinating mixes of the contemporary and the ancient, having the rare claim of being a center of power almost continuously since the 13th century, the city offers something special for each taste and every preference.

Agra has become synonymous with that of the Taj Mahal, a symbol of Emperor Shah Jahan's undying love for his wife. It is situated on the banks of the river Yamuna and raised on a 313 square feet marble platform. People travel from all over the world to bask in the magnificence of this monument that has defied time and age as it continues to astound all that have the good fortune of watching it in contemplative silence.
Jaipur, also known as the Pink City, is a gem set into the north-west corner of India, glimmering like a gem amidst the barren sands of the Thar Desert. The greatest appeal of Jaipur lies in its monuments and architecture. A land of forts, palaces and havelis, the city offers a perfect amalgam of Rajput and Mughal traditions, combining in it the best of both worlds.

Kathmandu, Chitwan, Pokhara, and Lumbini tour offer a gateway to explore the cultural, historical, and natural treasures, with hiking to the diverse landscape of Shivapuri. In this Nepal holiday trip, we have included best places of Nepal. Kathmandu, capital of Nepal,  it offers you to explore historical places such as Kathmandu Durbar Square, Pasupatinath Temple, Boudhanath Stupa and Swyambunath Stupa (Monkey Temple), Patan Durbar Square, Bhaktapur and Changunarayan. Chitwan National Park, a UNESCO World  Heritage site, which is abode to more than 43 species of mammals. The park is especially renowned for its protection of the endangered one- horned rhinoceros, tiger and gharial crocodile along with many other common species of wild animals. So,Chitwan National Park is famous for Jungle safari.

Since, Nepal is the country of Lord Buddha, the third destination of your tour will be to Lumbini- the birthplace of Lord Buddha. Peace zone Lumbini will surely help you to internalize the essence of Buddhism.

Pokhara would definitely compel you to make a deep observation. The rare combination of snow-clad peaks and snow fed lakes and rivers  make the valley of Pokhara one of the most picturesque natural attractions. Moreover, the holy and hisotrical caves and natural water falls add some more splendor to mesmerize the tourists in Pokhara. Pokhara is the best place to start hiking and trekking towards Annapurna base camp, Ghorepani (Poonhill) and Muktinath (holy temple). Pokhara offers you multi travel activities such as boating, paragliding, Helicopter tour, hiking, trekking etc.

2. Food
When the Moghul Empire invaded during the sixteenth century, they left a significant mark on the Indian cuisine, according to the Texas A&M University. Indian cuisine is also influenced by many other countries. It is known for its large assortment of dishes and its liberal use of herbs and spices. Cooking styles vary from region to region.
Wheat, Basmati rice and pulses with Chana (Bengal gram) are important staples of the Indian diet. The food is rich with curries and spices, including ginger, coriander, cardamom, turmeric, dried hot peppers, and cinnamon, among others. Chutneys — thick condiments and spreads made from assorted fruits and vegetables such as tamarind and tomatoes and mint, cilantro and other herbs — are used generously in Indian cooking.
Many Hindus are vegetarians, but lamb and chicken are common in main dishes for non-vegetarians. The Guardian reports that between 20 percent and 40 percent of India's population is vegetarian.
Much of Indian food is eaten with fingers or bread used as utensils. There is a wide array of breads served with meals, including naan, a leavened, oven-baked flatbread, and bhatoora, a fried, fluffy flatbread common in North India and eaten with chickpea curry.

For special occasions, men wear a sherwani, which is a long coat that is buttoned up to the collar and down to the knees. The Nehru jacket is a shorter version of a sherwani. 

11. Weather:
India is situated in Southern Asia, bordering the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, between Burma and Pakistan. 
The climate in India varies from a tropical monsoon climate in the south to a temperate climate in the north. If you are thinking of Visiting Delhi (the capital of India) then best to visit it in October, November, February and March. That's when the nights are cool and the days are filled with a little sunshine. May, June and July are very hot with temperatures over 45 degrees (113 Fahrenheit). It is a dry heat and is sometimes accompanied by dusty desert winds. Most of the rain falls between July and September but they are not the tropical rains you'll experience in India's coastal cities.
