Must you be jaded now? Back to your hotel, treasure the memories from the full-day City of Varanasi.

Good night!

A guided excursion to Sarnath is an all-sensory opportunity to apprehend Lord Buddha's first sermon after attaining enlightenment 2500 years ago. Located about 10 km from Varanasi, Sarnath nestles myriad Buddhist sites, including the renowned Dhamek Stupa, the holy Buddha seat. You can also visit the ruins of Dharmarajika Stupa and Mulagandhakuti Temple, where Lord Shiva is said to have rested and meditated while in Sarnath.

Marvel at The Ashoka Pillar, built by the emperor Ashoka, while in Sarnath! The Lion Capital on top of this pillar is the National Emblem of India, which stands apart for its artistic and architectural prowess.

Followed by the Sarnath tour, it is time for you to behold the Varanasi's claim-to-fame, the well-esteemed 'sandhya aarti' (evening prayer)!

Transporting you to the stratosphere of spirituality, catching the evening prayer in Varanasi is genuinely a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Here, we call it a night.

Marinate the memories made in the spiritual capital of India so far on our Luxury North-India Tour.

New day- New City. On your arrival at the Dharamshala airport, you will be driven to McLeod Ganj, where you will spend the night.

Private guides we assign for you will take utmost care of the hotel check-ins and everything else so you can be settled and well-rested.

If possible, we recommend walking around exploring the Dalai Lama complex. Within walking distance is the enticing Namgyal Monastery (the main temple complex); the bazaars (markets) of McLeod Ganj and the eateries in it are the perfect welcome one can expect!

Day 6 summons with you, fellow foodie, relishing some warm Indian breakfast!

Fresh day. Fresh City. Our next stop on our Luxury North-India Tour- Agra!

The City was once the Mughal empire's capital; it provides an all-sensory experience of the Mughal monarchy and its architectural finesse.

Gear up for the first-hand experience!

Upon arrival, you can retire for the night at your hotel.

Sightseeing for the day begins with a visit to the Taj Mahal (name is enough) and Agra Fort. Our first stop is Agra Fort, an immortal emblem of the Mughal power. Located by the banks of Yamuna, the opulent Agra Fort transports you back to 1573 and unravels the Mughali mysteries etched on its colossal edifice.

We, then, take you to one of the seven wonders in the world and Agra's claim to fame, the Taj Mahal. If it is your first time in India, this is one monument you cannot go without beholding! The mausoleum of royal romance is a quintessence of the creative splendour of India back then.

End your day with a walk around the old City, exploring some delectable Mughali cuisine and call it a night!

Today, we will unravel a few more gems, such as Abhaneri Step Well, the Phantom City of India, Fatehpur Sikri, and its Fortress.

We start from Agra in the morning and drive to Jaipur. On the way, we halt by the Abhaneri Step Well. This is another architectural marvel that has been standing strong for over 200 years!

Must you miss capturing it? No.

Must you miss exploring around by walking? No!

Up next, we are headed to Fatehpur Sikri. Find out what this one-of-a-kind City has to offer us! A plethora of palaces, mosques and monuments adorn the City. If you have been fascinated by Mughal architecture yet, you will fall for the historical relevance of Fatehpur Sikri!

We continue on our journey to the Pink City, Jaipur! Upon arrival, get rested for the night and gear up for tomorrow.

We kickstart our day 13 with a Rajasthani breakfast and spend the day exploring the Pink City.

We visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Amer Fort, in the morning. This Fort is the first thing you see on your arrival in Jaipur and is one of India's most popular tourist attractions.

 The next stop is City Palace, where the best part is the audio-visual presentation about this quintessential Indian architectural gem.

For lunch, you can opt for a Mewari dish (if you liked the breakfast) or a continental dish- whatever works. Wind Palace invites us post-supper. This effervescent Palace was once home to Maharaja Jai Singh II. This royal residence has been splendidly restored and now houses many exhibits on him and others from his royal family.

At nightfall, post-dinner, you are free to explore on your own; Don't forget to collect souvenirs from the ever-alive bazaars of Jaipur.

First-half of Day 14 of our 24 days luxury North-India tour is dedicated to the celebrated Elephant Sanctuary called Elephantastic. Sounds fantastic, right?

Elephantastic is a unique conservation project and an elephant rehabilitation centre in Jaipur, Rajasthan. In this one fascinating educational farm, we partake in manifold fun daytime and nighttime activities with our elefriends!

Haven for wildlife and elephant lovers, it is!

Into the jungle, we then head to meet some more baby-smiling tuskers.

Afterwards, we will take a dip into the pink silhouette of Jaipur! Assisted by us, together we delve into the chaotic streets smothered with archaic yet contemporary architecture, leisurely cycle-rickshaw rides, unforgettable experiences, and smiling souls.

Trust us- All this and more will make you feel like a royal figure yourself!

It is time to head to Mandawa, an unexplored wonder in Rajasthan. The City of frescoes and castles greet us as we tread their less-trodden roads and explore around town.

On our North India Tour Today, we take you on a full day sightseeing of Mandawa, including the ancient Havelis and rural areas. After reaching Mandawa, you will have the option to explore before cycling back to your hotel.

We start with a gentle camel ride through the village. This makes for an excellent opportunity to get up close and personal with the locals, who are more than welcome to share their culture with us.

We visit the historic Bagh-e-Mandawa, afterwards. Built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan in the 16th Century, you learn about its stark history and regal architecture during your guided tour of this beauteous structure.

If you have time and energy remaining, we recommend unravelling Mandawa's old town- the area surrounding the Fort that homes many of Mandawa's most reclaimed fabrications. Whilst walking through the area, consider stopping by one of Mandawa's famous shops, where one can land on some exquisite souvenirs or support local artisans by buying their vibrant creations.

You can get a filling lunch at a nearby restaurant, or if you are exhausted already- we suggest having a mouthful in your room and retiring for the night at your hotel.

Today we are headed east towards Chandelao Garh- let your hair down and be one with Nature. We stay here at the fortress-style ancestral home-turned-homestay and witness the placid countryside setting.

So, take a deep inhale and breathe in the quiet luxury.

Chandelao Garh welcomes you wholeheartedly for the day. We start the day with a village tour where we treasure the sights and sounds of an Indian village. We will also visit an NGO, Sundar Rang, that offers an up-close insight into their work and have a chance to interact with the women in the community.

Following this, we fill our tummies for the afternoon and post-lunch, we go about for the remaining part of the excursion.

Heads up- Today will be hectic, so recharge yourself with a sumptuous breakfast.

We start the morning by boarding a train from Chandelao Garh to Jodhpur. It's a 50-minute ride, and we will spend the entire time onboard sightseeing Jodhpur, including visiting the iconic Mehrangarh Fort and Jaswant Thada.

Later in the day, we will drive to Pukhraj Garh, a sheerly blissful family-run resort in Salawas. Here we call it a night.

Enough of the hustle-bustle of the City; let's return to Nature?

Today is your golden chance to live a sheer rural life in the soil of Rajasthan.

The day will be filled with folklore of Rajasthan's history, culture and recent past. We will stop for lunch at one of the local huts, where you get to know the wherewithal of their diurnal lifestyle. Later on, we shall continue our trip through the desert until we arrive at our destination-

Salawas (Salt Lake). This beauty was once home to Bishnois (a nomadic tribe), but Today, a deserted hermit with a handful of buildings left erect remains. While the prime wonder here is the ethereal sunsets over the lake, our objective will be soaking up the local knowledge and being one with Mother Earth!

As we are heading towards the end of our 24-Days of North India Tour, Today we are headed to Udaipur. We will be crossing Ranakpur, a city home to some of the most revered Jain temples in the world. The road is relatively quiet, so feel free to stop by for photos or to cherish the views in tranquillity.

As we are heading towards our trip's end, it's time to explore one last City on our Luxury North India Tour. Today we have a full day to ourselves in Udaipur.

First, we explore the City Palace. Built by Maharana Udai Singh in the 17th Century, it is now the property of the Government of India. It is an imposing structure, but a few people are around when we visit since it is primarily used for administrative offices and meetings.

Next up, stop by Saheliyon ki Bari- a splendid fortification Maharana Jai Singh II built in 1616.

After this, we will visit Lake Palace, built by Maharana Karan Singh in 1831, as his summer residence. Today is a museum where one can learn how Rajput culture has influenced Indian architecture over the centuries.

Later, we go to Bazaar Square for some much-needed shopping splurge! Together with your local guide, lay your hands on some rare finds!

For the first half of the day, you can relax, unwind by the pool or in the hotel- reflect upon the memories you made with us! Hope we served you well.

In the evening, you fly to New Delhi and are chauffeured to the pre-booked hotel. Here you spend one last night in India.

In the noon post-checkout, you will be driven to the Delhi airport and bid you farewell.
