India Uncovered (Tour Code: IN/005) – India is all about superlatives. 28 world heritage sites (we cover most of these in this tour). One out of world’s seven wonders, an enviable culture that has survived the great winds of change, a curry eating habit that has spoilt the world’s dinning style, craft that transforms cotton wool into a hand woven clothes, music that makes clouds rain and the sun shine. We at Indian Frontiers show you a glimpse of all this and how it is so intricately woven into our modern social fabric. This tour is all about exploring India – a country of superlatives. Discover India as we see it, in your 25/26 days sojourn. Visit Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Khajurahoo, Bhimbetka, Sanchi, Mumbai, Aurangabad, Goa, Hampi, Pattadakal, Mahabalipuram and Sunderbans.
