Northeast India & Darjeeling by Rail

Boka nu
Pris: fr 10283 SEK
Startpunkt: Kolkata
Slutdestination: Delhi

Anybody can view the sights of India by foot or bus but you're not just anybody. Instead, get off the beaten path and see India in a very untypical way by train. Over two weeks, you'll head north into Sikkim and Darjeeling via vans and local trains (including the famous toy trains in Darjeeling), giving you an up close and personal experience with authentic India. There'll be plenty of palaces and forts to spot both on the train and off, and you'll still get all the social elements of travelling with a group. Add in local meals and a large helping of culture, and this is a trip that'll stay with you for a long time.
