Icons of India: The Taj, Tigers & Beyond with Dubai & Kathamandu

16 Day Tour from Dubai to Kathmandu


Vacation Overview

How do you express your eternal devotion to the love of your life? Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan enlisted the help of more than 20,000 workers and 1,000 elephants to erect a towering white marble mausoleum in honor of his wife who died during childbirth. A sunrise visit to the magnificent Taj Mahal, one of the New7Wonders of the World, is just the beginning of your love affair with India. Beyond India’s most sparkling jewel lies a priceless gem mine of experiences you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Hop in a rickshaw for a ride through Delhi’s centuries-old Chandni Chowk bazaar, sit down for traditional Indian cuisine in the home of a noble family in Jaipur, and embark on three thrilling open-air safari game drives through Ranthambore National Park in search of marsh crocodiles, striped hyenas, and the elusive Bengal tiger. A mosaic of memories awaits on this radiant tour of India.

Start your travels in Dubai, where among the world’s tallest buildings await the world’s loftiest experiences. Add a Monograms vacation to glitzy Dubai before your tour of India to experience the city’s Old World markets and world-class shopping, sweeping sand dunes and dazzling beaches, and traditional Bedouin villages and futuristic vibe. Cap off your tour with a Monograms vacation to Nepal, where Kathmandu’s Temple of Kumari is said to have been carved from the wood of a single tree. When you add Nepal’s lively capital to your tour of India, you’ll see the top religious and cultural sights on a private guided tour, plus enjoy the free time carved out for your own personal interests.
