Golden Triangle

Delhi– Agra– Jaipur– Delhi
 (6 Nights /7 Days)

The Golden Triangle is a good introduction to India for the lay traveler. The cities of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur are exotic, as well as understandable – or so you think, until you get into the streets. Then you realize that three are some things you simply cannot prepare for: the intensity of the massive poverty; the religious diversity; shocking government hotels; antiquity still everywhere you care to look; the scale of the Taj Mahal; the mystique and audacious grandeur of the ancient Mogul architecture; the chauvinism; the environmental desecration…and the traffic.
