Days 2-6 – The Sikh and the monk

This morning, you’ll be picked up from your hotel and transfer to the train station, where your driver will help you board the train to Amritsar. The journey will take around 6 hours and you’ll watch the scenery changing as you’re passing through the different states. When you reach Amritsar, you’ll be picked up and whisked to your hotel. Get some rest or start exploring this incredible city straight away.

Gaze at the glistening Golden Temple, watch a bizarre border ceremony and listen to monks chant in the Himalayan foothills, filled with fluttering prayer flags. This spiritual trip will take you from eye-opening Amritsar into India’s ‘Little Tibet’, a Buddhist nook between forested peaks that the Dalai Lama calls home. First, you’ll visit the Golden Temple, the holy centre of the Sikh religion. Standing in the Pool of Nectar, you’ll see pilgrims file into the temple while ceaseless, gentle chanting echoes all around you. You’ll also swing by the surreal and flamboyant border ceremony between India and Pakistan, before heading into the Himalayas for some fresh air and hilltop meditation.

Days 11-14 – Unveil the secrets of Nubra Valley

Hidden behind the spectacular Khardung La Pass, the Nubra Valley sits at over 3,000m above sea level and is relatively isolated and remote. Those who make the trip are rewarded with magnificent views of Himalayan Mountains, verdant valleys, and a white sand desert. This fertile valley is also scattered with trees lining its rivers and oases. During your trip, you’ll visit colourful Buddhist monasteries, striking viewpoints, and charming villages.
