Leh in Ladakh and Rajasthan's Golden Triangle... A Perfect North Indian Pairing from April to Sept

16 days from £4,250 per person

This itinerary is one of Ampersand's Top 10 Cultural Holidays.

This tour combines two completely different regions of India; Ladakh and Rajasthan, each stunning in its own way. Ladakh is often called Little Tibet due to the great similarities in its people, plateau landscape surrounded by the Himalayas, culture and religion. Using Leh as a base, explore the surrounding region with its impressive and ancient monasteries, many populated by communities of Buddhist monks. Spend a day visiting Alchi to see the 900 year old temples with their beautiful wall paintings and wood sculptures which fortunately survived the Mughal invasion of India. 

Next, return to Delhi and spend a day discovering the city's many layers of history and architecture. Continue to Agra, one of the jewels in the Mughal crown before visiting the regal Rajput cities of Jaipur and Udaipur. The contrast between the simplicity of Ladakh and the colourful opulence of Delhi and Rajasthan is striking and makes this tour most interesting.

This tour is purely a suggested itinerary: it can be booked as it is, or alternatively used as a starting point for creating your own ideal tailor-made holiday in Ladakh and Rajasthan. If you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our Honeymoon and Family Holiday collections, as well as our other favourite Active and Mountains & Trekking itineraries.

When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.

Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
