OVERVIEW

Golden Triangle Tour with Udaipur can provide you with a full-fledged glimpse of India’s royal and cultural heritage in such a short span. The journey covers four most popular tourist destinations of India- Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Udaipur. The guests are provided with a slice of British, Rajputana and Mughal royalty on the same platter. 

Delhi: Delhi, the incredible capital of iconic India, is always ready to surprise you with its myriad moods, contrasts and contradictions. It is a perfect blend of history and modernity. Beneath the glitzy and glamorous surface of a vibrant city life, there lies a rich legacy of history, culture and traditions. Delhi has been a host to the rise and fall of many empires and dynasties; hence the city lies dotted with great Indian monuments such as the Red Fort, the Jama Masjid, the Qutub Minar and the India Gate. A visit to these monuments is a must in order to understand the rich and varied culture of this magical city. 

Agra: When one thinks of Agra, the image of Taj Mahal surfaces on the mind. It is true that the Taj has an unfathomable magical charm that attracts visitors from all over the World. And unlike most of the hyped things in this world, the Taj Mahal is worth every piece of appreciation that has ever been bestowed upon this timeless monument. No wonder it is one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. But the Taj is not a standalone attraction in Agra. Agra boasts of a great Mughal legacy that can be witnessed in the form of the magnificent Agra Fort. A day spent in Agra would leave an indelible impression on your memory! 

Haridwar: Haridwar is the place where people from across the India visit for pilgrimage and to take a holy dip into the holy river Gangas. There are four holy temples Gangotri, Yamunotri, Kedarnath and Badrinath on the hills also known as chardham. Haridwar is like a entry point to these chardham. People visit Haridwar before visiting these temples so the town was became famous as Haridwar. Haridwar means gurgling of river Ganges, innumerable temples, groups of monks in saffron clothes, enchanting sounds of vedic hymns and the divine holiness.

 



Rishikesh: Holy city of Rishikesh in Uttarakhand is home to various tourist attractions. A place where divinity and nature combine and give the choicest of experiences, it seeks to be a perfect abode for people seeking piety, tranquility and wisdom. Rishikesh is a magnificent place for those who want to learn yoga. Adventure seekers love it for the rafting and trekking breaks that the destination offers.
