A memorable and breathtaking heritage tour of North India 'Golden Triangle with Holy city Varanasi' is the showcase to the world that would inspire the travelers with authentic experiences while motivating the native people to preserve the great architecture and rich culture of the country. The tour comprises of four major cities of India namely Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Varanasi. While traveling in this mythical place, you get to witness the palaces, forts and temples built by the Hindu maharajas and their competitor, the Mughal emperors. 

Delhi, the capital city will offer a perfect mix of everything from food, culture to religion and architects. Delhi consists of monuments like Mughal era Red Fort, Humayun’s Tomb, Qutab Minar, Jama Masjid and bazaar like Chandani Chowk. Then a scenic drive takes you to the pink city of Jaipur where you can tour the Amer Fort, Jal Mahal, and Galta (Monkey Temple), a perfect blend of Rajput and Mughal traditions amidst the barren sands of the Thar Desert. Likewise, Agra is a perfect city to view the Mughal glory, Taj Mahal, One of the Seven Wonders of the World. Made of the immaculate white marble by the Mughal ruler Shah Jahan on the remembrance of his sweetheart; Mumtaz, it is a monument of immense beauty located on the banks of the river Jamuna. Along these famous architects in these cities, you also get to see other beautiful but less famous attractions on the tour.

Agra to Varanasi by train, Varanasi is the India of your imagination, one of the most colourful and fascinating places on earth, surprises abound around every corner. Varanasi literally one of the oldest living cities in the world, has origins that are lost in the mists of time. The daily scene of pilgrims doing their devotions in the Bathing Ghats of the River Ganges at sunrise set against the backdrop of the centuries old temples is probably one of the most remarkable sights in the world. At last, you will fly back to Delhi from Varanasi

Rating:  

I just completed my 12 days India tour GOLDEN TRIANGLE WITH VARANSI by Luxury Holidays Nepal.  It was a fixed departure program and I joined the group from my country Australia. I was a mixed group of 12 people with all different taste.

The trip was excellent and escorted by guide named Salim.  He was friendly and informative and fluent in English speaking. He has great knowledge about history and Monuments.  He manages our group very effieciently and take great care of us.  Our driver, was also an excellent driver and navigated his way through the crowded traffic around cows, trucks and whatever else presented it self on the roads with ease and he was helped by a proficient helper. Our train journey was cancelled due to some problem and had to take overnight bus journey.  We had wonder ful bus journery and had one stop for 2 hour sleep in the bus. Driver was very great.   

Overall hotel accommodation was great with neat and clean rooms.  Food during the tour was awesome. We also tried Indian food they are very spicy. But I found Indian cities are much crowded with people and road traffic.   A bit messy country.  

But service provided was awesome and highly recommended agency Luxury Holidays Nepal.

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.

10. Clothing:
Indian clothing is closely identified with the colorful silk saris worn by many of the country’s women. The traditional clothing for men is the dhoti, an unstitched piece of cloth that is tied around the waist and legs. Men also wear a kurta, a loose shirt that is worn about knee-length. 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.

12. Insurance:
We do not hope that there may arise any serious problem for you in your journey, but if you get caught by serious illness, then we will do our best to take you to the nearest hospital possible. So, it is good for you to have insurance which will cover your cost. Be insured. (See the travel insurance page for more information)
