The Northern India & Nepal trip starts in New Delhi and ends in Kathmandu. The Northern India & Nepal trip is a cultural, religious and historic sites tour that takes 15 days taking you through New Delhi, Kathmandu, Bodhgaya, Chitwan National Park and 5 other destinations in Nepal and India. This is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

To travel between Delhi and Kathmandu, from the bustling cities of the Indian plains to the peace and tranquillity of the highest mountains on Earth, is one of the most beautiful and fascinating journeys in Asia [1]. For culture, the Taj Mahal, 'the Pink City' of Jaipur and the holy city of Varanasi are the highlights. We also follow the footsteps of Buddha, visiting the sacred Buddhist sites of  Sarnath and Lumbini. For nature, spotting rhino in Nepal's Chitwan National Park or the first view of the mighty Himalayas will provide lasting memories.[1] taxonomy/term/156

Delhi to katmandu. Mr A P Rae
1 - Very poor
“There were too many long bus journeys, we spent a great deal of time on the road , the buses you provided would not be out of place on the Fintstones, the hotels in India were too far from the centre of the cities in a nut shell I was extremly disappointed.”
DELHI TO KATHMANDU

“I have just returned from this wonderful adventure and wish it hadn't ended. The sights, sounds and colours will stay with me for ever and I would like to go back to India and Nepal again one day.”
To Kathmandu Via CO2

“If you like sitting in traffic jams then this is the trip for you! It's possible to enjoy pollution choking traffic jams in 4 Indian cities, plus several cities in Nepal. The destinations, when you get to them, are often stunning and very memorable, but you will have to endure many long hours of travelling, and many choking traffic jams, to get to them. The trip was enjoyable but not, in my opinion, "leisurely" in terms of the pace of the trip, which involves many early starts and very long days of travelling on, at times, very poor bumpy roads. The scenery in Nepal is, however, simply stunning, which does lessen the pain of the journey somewhat. If you can put up with the travelling and the congestion and pollution, then you will find this trip to be rewarding.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
