Also a lot of wildlife is covered in the Chitwan National Park, since you are going on safari by kanoe and jeep. If that´s not enough you can also go on safari by elephant.

    I have travelled twice with them and yes they do do excellent packages. However when the going gets rough such as my Road Traffic Accident caused by the driver they provided which they had performing a long journey on treacherous road with minimal rest stops when the journey when the trip could have been done over two days without effecting the overall trip duration. I would gladly have pad for the extra nights hotel. They gave half truths to my solicitor when I went to make a claim via my insurers and claim because I accepted the itenerary they were not responsible even though the itinerrary failed to go into such specifics. All I wished to claim was two for loss of pay due to PTSD but apparently this was beneath them to offer. I will never travel with this company again.

    I loved the highlights of India and Nepal trip which was split over two tours with two leaders. We saw so much and had great experiences, too many to mention! Very well organised trip, variety of accommodation and transport used to mix it up a bit. Great trip, great leaders who looked after us and had great local knowledge. Would recommend this trip if you want to see a lot and have the time of your life!

    This was our first group tour and it was amazing! We did so much in the 19 days that I am not going to ramble on about it, but I will say this: - The small group of 12 people were great and soon felt like family! - Our guides were amazing! They really looked after us, had great local knowledge and went way beyond expectations! - We loved seeing the most popular attractions, but best of all were the small villages, local home-stays and intimate river journey! - accommodation was basic but comfortable. It was also well planned so that if we had been in a tent one night we could recover in a more comfortable hotel the next. - Some meals were included & they were all good. Our group chose to eat together most other meals and our guides would always come (& help choose) too! I quote our guide 'Don't worry, eat a curry!' :-) - India is not a place for the faint hearted! It is a country of extremes and you need to be flexible and up for an adventure! - Intrepid's Responsible Travel Policy of supporting local communities, employing local guides, reducing rubbish, no animal cruelty and low impact tourism was also great to see! We loved this trip and will be planning our next trip with Intrepid soon! :-)

The tour ends with an amazing mountain flight around Mount Everest. Everything you can wish for in a crash course India & Nepal is covered in this tour in 19 days. It´s a crazy rollercoaster ride, but at the end you´ll be glad you did it.

    Overall a great trip. Only downside is the double-up of merely going back to Delhi only to return to Agra, which is something to be put up with (or worked around, like we did, as the train back to Delhi was at night).
