A comprehensive journey through India's evocative north
A cacophony of vibrant colours, pungent smells and unfamiliar sounds, India almost overwhelms the senses and nowhere is this truer than Rajasthan. From the superb 'pink city' of Jaipur, home to huge palaces and forts, to the lakeside palace of Udaipur, each place has its own story to tell. We also see the intricate erotic carvings at Khajuraho, an astounding artistic accomplishment. For many visitors Varanasi is the highlight - located on the River Ganges it is one of the most sacred cities in India. However no trip to India would be complete without seeing the breathtaking Taj Mahal.
