From the magnificent Golden Temple to the quintessential hill station of Shimla, this extraordinary journey takes us to the vibrant city of Kolkata and the spectacular tea country of Darjeeling.

Led by Jennifer Wilkinson, the group comes together in India’s capital, Delhi before travelling to Amritsar, home of the famous Golden Temple and the most holy place of the Sikh religion.

From Amritsar we journey through the foothills of the Himalaya, with the greater Himalayan range, often referred to as the “roof of the world”, towering above us. We explore the hill station of Shimla to discover the remnants of the British Raj, now blended with local traditions and way of life. We delight in the luxury of Wildflower Hall, the former estate of Lord Kitchener and now a charming Oberoi hotel in the mountains outside Shimla.

We continue on to Kolkata, a city steeped in colonial history and architecture but with a vibrant and captivating cultural and culinary core. It exudes charm and character with its decaying mansions, abundant street food and lively markets. It was home to many freedom fighters and intellectuals during India’s battle for Independence and this strong and proud character continues today in its people.

Our final destination is the magnificent Himalayan hilltown of Darjeeling and the beautiful Glenburn Tea Estate. This offers us the perfect mix of stunning mountain vistas, remote and luxurious accommodation and an entirely unique and distinctive cultural experience.
