FROM THE FOOTHILLS OF THE HIMALAYAS TO THE ANDAMANS

This tour is one of contrasting splendour – it encapsulates the Mughal ruins of Delhi, the colonial charm of Kolkata, the misty tea gardens of Darjeeling, the Buddhist influence on the Himalayan towns of Sikkim, and the tropical paradise of Havelock Island in the Andaman Sea.

Experience the old and new parts of Delhi with its bustling bazaars and historic monuments; in Kolkata, revel in the colours of Bengali culture – in the food, at the flower market, out on the streets; find tranquility in the Buddhist monasteries of Sikkim; visit a local tea garden in Darjeeling; and enjoy a relaxing and thrilling time in Havelock Island, rated as one of world's top 10 islands.
