Starting and ending in Kathmandu, the trip India & Nepal Encompassed is a guided cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 90 days. You will be traveling through Bikaner, New Delhi, Chitwan National Park and 37 other destinations in Nepal and India. India & Nepal Encompassed is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

This is our ultimate journey through the Indian Subcontinent. It's a full 90 days and travels across Nepal and all the way around India. Whilst we take the time to visit the Taj Mahal, Rajasthan, Goa, Kerala, Agra and Jaipur we also takes in the parts of India that you have probably never heard of. These are often just as spectacular as the highlights and even more fulfilling. Take the five days that we spend exploring the tribal lands of Odisha, a remote area populated by indigenous Indian tribes, or our four day visit to Karmi Farm in the foothills of the Himalayas in Darjeeling or the wonderful three days of hill hiking on a ridge overlooking the Annapurna's in Nepal.


This trip is as much about the peoples of India as the sites and through a variety of home stays, city visits and the experiences of day to day life whilst travelling that will really get you under the skin of this great area. We don't forget the great cities either and we visit the biggest of them all; Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and, of course, Kolkata.

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
