Inclusions
Day 1

Delhi - Khajuraho. Drive to the airport for your included flight to Khajuraho. Upon arrival to Khajuraho you will be met and transferred to your hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure.
Overnight: Khajuraho

Day 2

Khajuraho – Varanasi. In the morning enjoy a sightseeing tour of the Chandela Dynasty temples. The temples rate as one of India’s greatest attractions and were mostly built during a major creative burst of genius from 950AD to 1050AD. Remarkably enough, these ancient temples are incredibly well preserved. The temples were built during the Chandela period, a dynasty that survived for five centuries before falling to the mighty Mughal onslaught. Their sheer beauty and immense size has confounded experts as to why and how they were built in Khajuraho, a small town then and still a relatively small town now.

To build temples of such size and with such skill at such a momentous pace would have required many, many skilled hands. Around the temples are bands of intricately carved stone work detailing Indian life and style a millennium ago. There are also various acts from the famous Kamasutra depicted on these monolithic temples. Later transfer to the airport for your included fight to Varanasi.
Overnight: Varanasi  |  Breakfast

Day 3

Enjoy an early morning boat ride on the Ganges to view the sunrise from the boat. From dawn to dusk the Ghats (riverside steps) are thronged by thousands of devotees, who perform their holy rituals in the hope of attaining eternal salvation, the ‘nirvana’. Later enjoy a sightseeing tour of the city with its an incredible array of temples and ancient buildings. There are 2,000 temples and shrines in Varanasi, but the holiest, Vishvanatha, is closed to non-Hindus. The Durga Temple, which can be visited, is teeming with monkeys (hold onto your valuables). Further downstream on the eastern bank of the Ganges is the Ram Nagar Fort. It isn’t one of the country’s best, but it does have a fascinating, if gruesome, collection of weapons. Take a walking tour of the Islamic section. The streets are flled with Arabic music and veiled women. It’s here that famous Varanasi silk is dyed, dried and woven.
