The old city served as the centre of the Mughal Empire for a long time; however, during the British rule the new district was built and declared the capital of the nation after regaining independence in 1947. There you can visit to the Qutab Minar, which is the tallest minaret in India, the Red Fort and the Humayun's Tomb, for instance. On the next day go to Pushkar to visit the Lake and the 14th century Brahama temple. Don't miss an option of a camel ride in the evening. In the next morning hike up to Savitri Temple for a sunset view over the sacred place, enjoy the guided tour of the Amber Fort and head to Jaipur, which is commonly referred to Paris of India. There you can visit the nearby village of Sanganer to see blue pottery or enjoy the atmosphere of the Pink City since you will stay in Jaipur for the night.
Then visit to the famous Taj Mahal in Agra, which was constructed between 1631 and 1654 by a workforce of 22 000. It is considered the finest example of Mughal architecture that combines Islamic, Hindu, Persian and Turkish elements. Take an option to visit the Fort of Agra and Baby Taj, which is the smaller version of the Taj Mahal and is often called "the poor's man Taj Mahal", since unlike the impressive monument to the love that was built of a white marble, Baby Taj was constructed of a sandstone with a marble dome on it. Then take a night train to Varanasi - the oldest continuously inhibited city in the world and the sacred city of India. Have an excursion and take a boat ride of the River Ganges in a sunset or a sunrise to witness the candle flower ceremony.

Then travel to a mountainous region to visit the place of natural beauty - the town of Pokhara, which is located in the historic route between India and Tibet. The mule trains can be seen camped on the outskirts of the town, bringing goods to trade from remote regions of the Himalaya even these days. Explore the town in an orientation walk, use an option to rent a boat for the lake tour or take a trip to view the Himalayan sunrise up in Sarangkot village (1592 m) and walk back down through farms and forest to Pokhara. In the final part of the tour get to Kathmandu – the city that is sitting in a bowl-like valley surrounded on all sides by some of the highest mountains on the Earth and has been the crossroad of cultures for hundreds of years.
