There is no better way of visiting Northern India, than balancing it with Nepal. chalk and cheese, or chaos and calm. In Nepal, we hike through the gentle foothills, through rural villages, overlooked by the mighty Annapurnas; we stay in beautiful heritage homes in remote towns and villages and we look for the tigers and rhinos of Chitwan National Park.
Crossing into India, the frenetic pace of life is amplified to a crescendo on the banks of the Ganges at Varanasi and in the hustle and bustle of Delhi. Our route takes us through the heartland of the Mogul Empire with its fabulous monuments and forts; the Taj Mahal may be the most famous, but Agra's Red Fort and Akbar's great city of Fatehpur Sikri have to be seen to be believed. Then on into Rajasthan to the beauty and charm of the Pink City of Jaipur and the incomparable Amber Palace.
One month before departure I mailed Dragoman with the question if we really need to bring matrasses and sleeping bagd. Since matrasses are expensive to buy and a lot to carry. At the beginning of the trip we found out there was no camping at all, it has changed. And they told me it was known about 6 weeks at that time. So we got wrong info what cost money. I now initianaries can change, but it would be nice to mail the people about it that already booked it. Or make sure you know about the changes in the trips you sell.”

We recommend to check with your local embassies representing the countries that you are travelling to, as part of this itinerary.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.
