Welcome to Delhi-a capital of contrasts and greenery! A warm traditional Indian welcome awaits you at the International Airport of Delhi where a NOMADAY travel representative receives you with pleasure and makes sure you reach your hotel safe and relaxed. Delhi is a foodie paradise, a city where you forget about eating right and controlling your weight...Take rest after the flight and in the evening we invite you for an Indian welcome dinner in a nice restaurant and/or for some drinks in a cozy bar.

Inthe morning Challo (let's go in Hindi) for sightseeing. Delhi is divided into two parts and with that two contrasting lifestyles: North Delhi still remains crowded, dirty and smelly and South is getting similar to western busy city! We start our morning with the modern part of Delhi and a visit of the famous India Gate, followed by the Houses of Parliament and the Connaught Place. Time for spiritual experience? Explore the modern Lotus temple which is very similar to the opera building of Sydney. After that you will discover the ISKCONTemple followed by the Red Fort and the Qutub Minar – a wonderful minaret towering 102 meters into the sky.

Get the best of this day- the narrow alleys of Old Delhi are just a drug: you are getting involved in a buzzing street life! Smell masala, enjoy the traffic and mess, buy cheap goods, and enjoy new experience!!!

Delhi has a lot cultural marvels to offer; one of these is the Kingdom of Dreams (Indian Bollywood dance and show performance). Feel the Indian spirit and the power of culture!

On the way to Agra you will visit Fatehpur Sikri-the building which represents a fusion of Indian and Islamic cultures (UNESCO world heritage).

One of the seven wonders of the world, the reflection of real love, the eternal beauty... you can describe the Taj Mahal in many ways... One fact is clear- it was built for a woman who requested to have a tomb that the world had never seen before. Her husband Shah Jahan hired 20 000 workers to create this masterpiece within 17 years and offered it to her- to beloved and adored wife as a sign of eternal devotion...

Agra is famous not only for the Taj Mahal, some people even prefer the impressive Agra Fort! Make a tour there and proceed to Jaipur. If you are still motivated to discover one more temple on your arrival in Jaipur, you should admire the Birla Temple, which is a spectacular white marble temple glittering in the night. As you know, Indian cuisine is distinguished in all the world... the taste is unique! You wish to learn about spices, cooking procedures and ingredients? Relax in the house of a local family and let them show you the miracle of food cooking! Good luck and do not overdose on masala!

Jaipur – in many books described as pink city, actually it is a way more brown-orange city! Did you ever reach the monument standing on the back of a nicely painted elephant? Today you realize your dreams...The Amber Fort, a classic Rajasthani Palace located on a hillock, with huge ramparts and watchtowers. Do not stop to walk, next destination- the City Palace - the former Royal Residence, where a part of it became a museum. Continue your journey through Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar etc…

In the evening get to know about the eating rituals and traditions in the rural and on the same time modern place- dinner in Chokhi Dhani restaurant. Take a seat on the floor, do not hesitate to eat typical Rajasthani food with your fingers (like all locals do) and enjoy the ambiance!

Today your body needs some relaxation in a peaceful place- the best solution is the Neemrana Fort which is now converted to a magnificent hotel and is among the oldest heritage monuments in India. Neemrana offers baths in the royal swimming pools, walks in hanging gardens and courtyard sleeps in royal beds and imperial meals...

We suggest experiencing the zipping (Flying Fox at Neemrana). It's a thrilling and exciting experience for everyone. Very scary in the beginning as your life literally hangs on a wire stretched over 100 meters of the ground (very safe activity, UK standards). Five tracks are waiting for you to fly around like a bird and admire the beauty of Neemrana fort and surroundings!

Lovethe life you live. Live the life you love

Get ready for a day of extreme experience - White Water Rafting. Therafting will go on for several kilometres, and the path is full of rapids, ranging from Level 1 to Level 5, in order of difficulty. Enjoy the speed and adrenaline in your body! Later on you can have fun jumping off the cliffs into the water (5-7 meters high).

Wakeup, take a bath in the Ganga and start your active morning! Let's discover the greenery of the nature: trek among hills and waterfalls. Relax in the car after your hectic days in Rishikesh and depart to Shimla.

Start the morning from Tara Devi temple, which is called ''pilgrimage among clouds'',the beautiful temple is situated on top of the hill and surrounded by scenicview. The downtown of Shimla is very similar to any small British town; it is aperfect place to admire the colonial British architecture... If you are stillmotivated for the small hike, one more temple-Jakhu temple, surrounded withmonkeys, is waiting for you! Be aware of them: they like to steal and play withthe items and your belongings! In the evening get surprised: local fruit vineis delicious and you can get it on the main street in Shimla in local vineshops (it fits for every taste: strawberry, plum, pineapple, mango vine…) havea sweet evening with vine tasting!

Today the route is long, so on the way we stop in a non-commercial atmosphere wherethe locals did not yet see many tourists. Have you ever tried the natural hot water beds-hotsprings /Geysers? It is the best opportunity to try it and have the bestrelaxing day since long time! When you are ready to depart, the route,surrounded by mountains, brings you to Dharamshala.

Discover Dharamshala on horseback or by bike (according to preference). The storyof Dharamshala is heart shaking: over 80 thousand Tibetans, led by their religious leader Dalai Lama, escaped from the Chinese occupation andestablished a refugee community in Dharamsala. Today it will be a pleasure foryou to discover the largest Tibetan temple outside Tibet which contains a huge meditation hall including some beautiful statues. Walk in the monastery of the Dalai Lama located in front of his private residence. Ifyou are lucky, you might even meet

Dharamsala is famous for its natural resources, so that's why you will cross local villages today and reach the Bhagsu waterfall. Be sure you are prepared for a challenge: wear good shoes, carry water, extra vest and enjoy the trek to Triund hill (5-6h trek). You will be surrounded by the first peaks of the Himalayas and a stunning view over the plains and jungle...''Great things are done when man and mountain meet''-William Blake.

Unfortunately your trip ends and time to depart...
