India's Golden Triangle

The Golden Triangle is often considered to be the perfect introduction to India. Taking in the sights and sounds of the country, the well-connected, and admittedly well-trodden route passes through the intoxicating cities of Delhi, Agra and Jaipur on the ultimate Indian journey.

Golden Triangle

Whether you choose to travel the famed route by road or rail, it is a true adventure for first timers and India aficionados alike. Golden by name and nature, the celebrated journey includes the glittering palaces, dusty horizons and rich cultural history of the states of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan and is bound to leave you vowing to return.

The first stop on the Golden Triangle is Delhi, where you will be greeted by the heady throng of this sprawling megalopolis. Step back in time exploring Old Delhi’s bustling back streets, spice markets and the impressive Jaama Masjid before venturing into futuristic Gurgaon with its towering skyscrapers and vast malls. Tradition meets modernity in the city, as Delhi’s dynamic economy continues to drive pioneering innovation and metropolitanism whilst its rich history and fascinating culture pervades daily life.

From here, Agra is the next port of call. Whilst the Taj Mahal is undisputedly, and unsurprisingly, the main draw for visitors to the region, other hidden gems are also only a stone’s throw away from the banks of the Yamuna River. The Mughal Agra Fort, a red sandstone and marble fortress, is an unmissable highlight to get under the skin of the regal past of the region. Its grandeur is matched only by the famed Taj Mahal, which in all its glistening glory, is a truly mesmerising sight and a definitive highlight of the Golden Triangle tour.

The final stop on the iconic journey is Jaipur; the capital of Rajasthan and home to some of the country’s best bazaars. From the stunning coloured walls of the Pink City to the majesty of the City Palace and Hawa Mahal, Jaipur’s astounding architecture is simply breath-taking. Head to the Nahargarh Fort to soak up the spectacular views of this Indian gem from the edge of the Aravalli Hills before rounding off the trip.

Scratching the surface of this beautiful country is simply unforgettable and the Golden Triangle provides the perfect insight into the chaos and the calm of this fascinating country.
