India/Nepal or...

Although the destinations are so very different, we are thinking about either Gate 1 Patagonia or India/Nepal. Yes, we can plan one for this year and one for next, but if you happen to have visited both, which do you recommend over the other? Soo different from each other but we need to decide and have narrowed it down to these two extremes. Thank you!

Hi ,

I would suggest to plan North India highlights with Nepal .

You may plan :

Day 01 Arrive Delhi

Day 02 Visit Delhi

Day 03 Delhi - Udaipur ( Flight )

Day 04 Udaipur visit

Day 05 Udaipur - Chittorgarh - Jaipur ( By Car )

Day 06 Jaipur Visit

Day 07 Jaipur - Ranthambhore National Park ( Approx 04 Hours drive)

day 08 Ranthambhore - Morning & Evening Safari to hop the Tigers.

Day 09 Ranthambhore - Fatehpur Sikri- Agra ( By Car approx. 06 Hours drive)

Day 10 Agra - Jhansi ( By Train ) & Jhansi - Orchha by car approx. 01 hours

Day 11 Orchha - Khajuraho ( By Car approx. 04 hours drive )

Day 12 Visit Kamasutra temple in Khajuraho

Day 13 Khajuraho- Varanasi Flight

Day 14 Varanasi -Visit

Day 15 Varanasi -Delhi / Kathmandu by Flight

spend 05 days in Nepal

& Fly back to your country from Kathmandu.

It will be almost 03 weeks tour.

Suggestible to go for a individual & personalized trip instead group tour.

Customized trip would be better & more enjoying , use any India based travel company.
