This exciting family tour combines two of the country’s most fascinating cultural and ancient sites namely Khajuraho and Varanasi and an opportunity to visit the Tigers of Bandhavgarh. Starting at India’s capital city, Delhi, we take you to see the magnificent monuments of the Mughal times and the architectural gems of British and modern India. You are free to sample the varied cuisine options available in the gourmet city. We take the overnight train from Delhi to the ancient holy town of Varanasi.
The old city, best explored on foot and cycle rickshaws, can be very chaotic but exotic at the same time. The magical sight of man-made sunrise, bathing the banks with gold is an unforgettable sight to behold. The evening aarti at the busiest Dashashvamedha Ghat is spectacular, to say the least.
After exploring this fascinating and unforgettable destination, we take a flight to Khajuraho to see the Khajuraho temple complex, the most iconic magnificent structure in India after the Taj Mahal. The 25 temples at Khajuraho are best known for the depiction of various explicit sexual poses along with the usual scenes of dancers, musicians, processions, domestic, courtly and social scenes.
A pleasant 5-hour road trip takes us away from the manmade to the beautiful natural forests of Bandhavgarh National Park. A great place to sight the revered but endangered Tigers among other mammals and birds. A beautiful drive from Khajuraho with lovely views of rural Madhya Pradesh, you will get to see a glimpse of typical central Indian flora, vistas, architecture and way of living. A perfect start to the adventure ahead.
After fantastic wildlife sightings and relaxing stay over the three nights at Monsoon Forest in Bandhavgarh, we take the flight back to Delhi where our tour ends.
