Day 01: Arrival / Delhi (Interactive NGO Workshop Visit closed on Sundays)

Welcome to India, or as we say ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ (The guest is an incarnation of God). Thank you for giving us the opportunity to serve you!!

Mid-morning arrival, meeting and assistance upon arrival as our representatives welcome you and escort you to your car.

Whilst the room keys and check in is organized, our representative would introduce the tour to you and hand over the documents to you. (Though check in time is 2pm, every effort would be made to ensure an as early as possible check in - subject to availability)

Today, we will proceed on a unique slum tour.

A Journey Through Paradise In the slums of Sanjay Colony, the sky is only as wide as the lane below. Stacks of matchbox houses rise three or four storey’s, a few feet apart from each other. This appears like jagged strips similar to machines at the garment factories where many residents of this slum work. In our special tour, the focus is not on the poverty – the idea is to engage with the local community and see their way of living. Through this tour, visitors also witness a wide range of activities like: embroidery, bakery, clothes recycling as well as manufacturing, and many more. These items are created in innovative ways and in very small spaces!! One could learn a lot from the people in the slums. There is a sense of community that exists in the area. A lot of people have come here from different parts of the country to live in this tiny neighborhood of Delhi, and this diversity is apparent in the temples and mosques that stand side by side. At the end of this inspiring session, the tour would give you a delicate insight into human relationships, and, the indomitable human spirit that seeks to survive as well as thrive against the harshest challenges posed by destiny.

Overnight at Jaypee Siddharth (Deluxe Room) (No Meals)

Day 02: Delhi

After breakfast, embark on a city tour of New Delhi. Our tour includes a visit to the Qutab Minar - 72 meters high and one of the most perfect towers in the Persian world. The Iron Pillar which has survived the vagaries of weather for over 1500 years. Then, we will continue our expedition with a drive to the Lutyens Delhi which is considered to be the corridors of power and serenity. Our tour includes a drive pass through the Rashtrapati Bhawan, this vast, intricate work of mixed Mughal and Western architecture is one of the largest presidential residences in the world We will also visit the Parliament House as well as witness the majestic India Gate – a powerful tribute to our brave soldiers.

A Journey Through Paradise Following our drive pass to the Lutyens Delhi area, we will now visit the Humayun’s Tomb (1586), built by the Emperor’s widow Hamida Banu Begam, also known as Haji Begam, and commenced the construction of his tomb in 1569, fourteen years after his death. It is the first distinct example of proper Mughal style, which was inspired by Persian architecture.

Later, we proceed on the tour of Old Delhi. We cross the city and into the walled gates of the Old city with visits to the Jamma Mosque (1650) and drive through the fabled area of Chandni Chowk (aptly translates to Moonlight Square) where the throngs of shoppers and vendors meet in the oldest area of Delhi. Visit the Raj Ghat and nearby ghats where the founder of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi and thereafter Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were cremated.

The highlight of this tour would be a ride on cycle rickshaws. Now these are 3-wheel cycles with a sofa seat at the back. The Rickshawala (Rickshaw driver) sits on a small cushion in the front and two passengers on the sofa seat behind. This is a remarkable way to explore and picture the hustle and bustle as well as the color of the narrow winding streets bursting with people and pavement shops selling wares of all description - including a laughing set of dentures. The ride would be accompanied by peals of laughter both from the passengers as well as the onlookers.

Overnight at Jaypee Siddharth (Deluxe Room) (B)

Day 03: Delhi / Agra / Delhi (205 Kms) (04 Hrs Drive – One Way) (Taj Mahal Is Closed On Fridays)

After breakfast, we will drive to Agra along one of the India’s finest freeways.

Upon arrival in Agra, we will visit to see The Taj Mahal.

A Journey Through Paradise Agra is the city of the Taj Mahal, perhaps the most photographed monument in the world. However, there is a degree of enigma about the Taj. Once you hear about a building so much and once you see so many pictures of a building your expectations are real high; and this is the enigma about the Taj Mahal. No matter how many pictures you have seen or no matter how high your expectations are the Taj never lets you down - the unparalleled glory and beauty of the building surpasses beyond all human imaginations. We will visit the Taj Mahal to witness this spectacular monument built for love. Besides perfect symmetry in every aspect of its construction, the inlay work of semi precious stones into marble in pietra dura style is absolutely remarkable.

Next, we ride to the massive Agra Fort. The elegant buildings inside reflect an interesting synthesis of Hindu and Central Asian architectural styles. Built by Emperor Akbar, the maze of the courtyards, mosques & the private chambers of the fort echo the story of the Mughal Empire. The Moti Masjid & other magnificent buildings reflect the skill of the ancient Indian architects.

Following the tour, drive back to Delhi.

Overnight at Jaypee Siddharth (Deluxe Room) (B)

The Observatory Hill is located at the Mall area and is encircled at its bottom by the Mall Road. As you walk along the Mall road, you will see the Observatory Hill rising on one side. The rewards of the walk are awesome. As you take the Mall road from the right side of Chow rasta Mall, about 100 yards away you will find flights of stairs that lead towards the Observatory Hill and the Mahakal Temple. This is the city center of Darjeeling and a lovely place to walk and be with the locals. You could shop at local crafts store or sit on the first floor of the Keventers restaurant sipping coffee and watch the world go by. .

At an altitude of about 5576ft, Rinchenpong is the latest addition to the tourist map of West Sikkim. The place is famous for the beautiful view of the Kanchenjunga range of mountains.

Upon arrival in Rinchenpong, check into Yangsum Heritage Farm. Built back in 1833, the mountain farm was majorly refurbished more recently in 1966, but without losing its old-style sensi-bilities or respect for the vibrant local culture. Owned and managed by the hospitable and well-informed Tashi couple, Thendup and Pema - this rambling 44-acre working farm cultivates a wide range of grains and crops besides edible tubers surrounded by forests of pine, chestnut, magnolia and Himalayan alder. Also, home-cooked food is definitely an important reason for surrendering to Yangsum.

And to erect the 130 - foot high statue Ravangla was chosen. This divine comeliness fenced in by lush eco garden also helps promote pilgrimage tourism in Sikkim.

On our way, we will do a full day excursion of Rumtek. The original monastery was built by a ruler of Sikkim. However, a new monastery replicating the former one was built in the 16th century.
