The Golden Triangle is a perfect window for those who are travelling for the first time to India and want to get a glimpse of Indian culture and heritage. It is also the perfect holiday for the ones who are only on a short leave. The tour of the three cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur are perfect to know about the cultural heritage possessed by India. Along with the three cities, add an adventurous Park Safari in Ranthambore National park and take home the magic of Indian wildlife with you.
The fusion of Old and New in Delhi provides a sharp contrast between what was and what is; it shows us the changes that the city has witnessed over the years. The Pink City of Jaipur is full of architectural marvels, like the rest of India. The city is bathed in hues of Pink, and is thus known as the Pink City. It boasts of the mighty Amber Fort, the honeycombed Hawa Mahal among other. In Ranthambore National park, we take two Safaris to see the elusive and mighty tiger along with other Indian Wildlife. The wonderful experience of the Golden Triangle, with Sawai Madhopur is incomplete without a visit to Agra to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World - Taj Mahal. It draws a perfect closure to the wonderful journey.
