India: Rivers, Rhinos and Religion – Assam, Sikkim, Varanasi and Khajuraho

India

A most unusual program combining Sikkim and Assam, with Delhi, Varanasi, Khajuraho and Kolkata. The journey combines visits to Panna National Park near Khajuraho and rarely visited Orang National Park in Assam.

Along the way, you search for Gangetic Dolphins, take boat rides on the Brahmaputra and Ganges Rivers – two of India’s holiest rivers – wander sacred lakes and monasteries in Sikkim and enjoy the sacred rituals of Varanasi.

Then, of course, there are the people – tribal villagers in Assam, Buddhists in Sikkim, sadhus in Varanasi and many more!
