India’s Far North

Sep 25 - Oct 11, 2021

17 days | India | President's Tours

Join Lewie on an adventure to three of his favourite Indian destinations, an amazing journey from the sacred place of Sikhism to the Buddhist world of Dharamsala to the “Little Tibet” of Leh.

Meet in Delhi to visit some of Lewie’s favourite haunts, then fly to Amritsar. You’ll be awed by the magnificent Golden Temple where we are invited to join the feast of thousands and equally taken by the pageantry of the Wagah sundown border ceremony. Our journey continues overland as we watch for the first view of the majestic Himalayas on the drive to Dharamshala, a place of mystery, home to the government in exile of the Dalai Lama. Experience Tibetan rituals and traditions and enjoy walks in the glorious scenery of the spectacular Dhauladhar mountain range. Explore the British summer capital of Shimla and admire the higgledy-piggledy Oriental Tudor houses. Take the toy train for outstanding views of the mountains!

An epic flight over the Himalayas then takes us to Leh, our base for four nights to visit medieval palaces, forts, and monasteries of the Indus Valley. Timeless Buddhist roadside stupas glow white against the stark, otherworldly backdrop of enormous mountains with glaciated tops inspiring a sense of mystery.

We’ve selected a mix of flights and overland journeys in some of India’s most scenic places to maximize your time in India’s spectacular far north. Do you have a keen sense of adventure? Then this journey is for you!
