Day 02 Delhi
After breakfast take a tantalizing tour of Old Delhi, with delights such as the Parathewali Gali-a whole street lined with shops specializing only in Parathas, a special flat bread which is stuffed with all kinds of vegetables, cheeses, spices and everything else the chefs fancy! Watch them create master pieces using exotic flours, spices, vegetables and other ingredients.

These simple melt-in-your-mouth delicacies will leave you craving for more long after you return home. We continue our quest, still in Old Delhi and on to on to the famous bazaar- Chandni Chowk-bustling with commerce and enterprise. Spices are the specialty of Khari Baoli (Asia’s largest Spice Market), so be prepared to be assaulted by exotic smalls and fragrances. Very near the Red Fort is the Jama Masjid, India’s largest mosque, also built by Shah Jahan.

Take an interesting rickshaw ride through the famous bazaars of Chandni Chowk, which is adjacent to both the Fort and the Mosque. Also visit Raj Ghat – the memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. Lunch at Chore Bizarre Easily India’s finest theme restaurant. People can’t quite decide how to define Chor Bizarre – ‘A pirate’s galley’, ‘An attic’, ‘Really clever’ and ‘Quirky’ usually rule the roost. Rightly so – ‘Chor’ means thief and ‘bizarre’ means totally bizarre!

These five young men sway in seemingly choreographed movements, worshiping the river goddess with incense, camphor, flowers and earthen lamps. Thousands of illuminated lamps are immersed in the waters of the holy Ganges and the floating lamps add a divine look to the river at dusk. Sit with some ‘sadhu’ and enjoy knowing their lifestyle from close proximity.

You might even run into someone who is more than 100 years old! The Ghats also provide a good option for photography with serene temples and their bustling courtyards creating a perfect backdrop.

Day 10 Varanasi – Delhi (By Flight)
Morning: Transfer for Boat ride at dawn down India’s most sacred river, The Ganges. Sun rise at the holy river is a truly tranquil and breath taking sight with pilgrims standing waist-deep in water, praying to the rising Sun. Past these bathing ghats, see the “burning ghats” where the Hindus cremate their dead.

This is done with great religious fervor which makes for a moving experience. After boat ride one of Varanasi’s highlights is the Samosa and launglata-take after a holy dip in River Ganges from the numerous shops mushrooming on roads and streets nearby.

The traditional snack of kachori sold in the old city next to the ghats is also a must try. The ‘paapri-chaat’ is a hot favorite, with its tangy and spicy flavor of ginger and tamarind chutney accompanied by the cooling and soothing yoghurt. A variety of mango available only in summers called ‘Langda aam’ with its sour and sweet flavor is very popular, and so the fragrant ‘Benarasi paan’ added with aromatic essences of rose and ‘supari’ (areca-nut) along with other goodies.
