North India

Northern India is a vibrant region with diverse cultures, languages and even landscapes, right from the Great Indian desert to the snowcapped Himalayas. Beautiful art and awe-inspiring architecture bear witness to elite, powerful dynasties that reigned here from as early as the 6th century spanning through to the reign of the Mughals. The state of Rajasthan, with its imposing forts, beautiful people and colourful traditions, has a magnetic charm that no traveler can escape. Religious places, such as Varanasi on the holy river Ganges never fail to deeply impact the visitor with their spiritual energy. National parks abound as well, especially the tiger reserves, offering the wildlife lover opportunity to watch the big cat roam in its natural habitat. The vast variety of cuisine in north India- a culmination of foreign and local influences- is every gastronome’s delight and a memorable part of the travel experience.

An unmatched choice of accommodation, especially the glamorous experience of staying at Maharaja palaces and heritage mansions allows you to experience the grandeur of northern India in style.

Here are just a few of the places we would like to show you. Click on the city names below to know all about them.
