North India Highlights
The Taj Mahal took 20,000 workers and 1,000 elephants 22 years to complete, yet it only takes a single moment to realize how utterly beautiful it is. From strolling in its serene shadows to walking the streets of Delhi with a local young adult in the G Adventures-supported New Delhi Streetkids Project, to spending a night in a traditional village home, these eight days are an incredible introduction to the evocative beauty of India.
