Your adventure begins as you board your overnight flight to India. Upon arrival, you will be escorted to your luxurious hotel in the commercial district of Delhi. Spend the next day exploring one of the world’s most fascinating cities, India’s capital and political hub. This ancient city has something for everyone: history, architecture, religion, shopping and cosmopolitan culture. In Old Delhi, a labyrinth of crowded streets, see the Jama Masjid, India’s largest mosque; the Red Fort; and Raj Ghat, a memorial for Mahatma Gandhi. In New Delhi view the 12th century Qutab Minar, Humayun’s tomb, India Gate, the Presidential Palace and the Secretariat buildings, a blend of the Victorian and 20th century design. THE GRAND NEW DELHI.

India is best visited during winter – October through March. During this time, there’s hardly ever any rain, and the days are warm – not hot – while the evenings are cool. During summer, it can be very hot, which is also the time of the monsoons, with a substantial amount of rainfall. It can be foggy in Delhi during the winter months. For our South India program, for best viewing of wildlife at Nagarahole, April/May is recommended, when the elephants congregate at the banks of the lake and can be seen in massive herds. It is warm, but the wildlife viewing warrants it. For our Wild India program, the parks close between June and mid-October when temperatures can soar to 120 degrees. For our Little Tibet program, this part of India is best visited June through September. Because of the high elevation and winding mountain roads, driving the rest of the year could be treacherous and it will be quite cold. June through September, the average temperature ranges from the low 60’s at night, to the high 80’s during the day. Delhi at this time of year will be quite hot and possibly rainy – temperature could be around 100 degrees.
