About This Tour

“Sumakha” is a Sanskrit word that is both adjective (meaning “very joyous or gay”) and noun (meaning “a joyous festival”). It has been said that visiting India is like experiencing an ongoing festival. It can be an assault to the senses, with its multitudinous hoards of people, the vibrant colors of thousands of saris and turbans in a public market, and the spectacle of elaborate monuments from bygone eras. As large as Europe, India is where East meets West, and North meets South. It has one of the world’s oldest cultures, with a long history that is forever alive. Around every corner another wonder of India’s kaleidoscopic richness reveals itself—Hindu temples, Buddhist stupas, Mauryan pillars, Mughal forts, British colonial architecture. Experience the world-famous marvels of Rajasthan during this comprehensive tour, including the Taj Mahal, the Agra Fort, the Amber Fort, and many exotic shrines, temples and palaces. There are 9 UNESCO World Heritage Sites on this tour, which has been timed to take advantage of three different cultural festivals. Any visit to India is destined to be a life-changing experience.
