Rachel and Mike's tour of Rajasthan

The next leg of their tour involved a short trip up north. We booked a train from New Delhi to Haridwar, and from there they took a short taxi ride to Rishikesh. They travelled unaccompanied in Rishikesh, relying on tuk-tuks and taxis for transport.

We booked their hotel for them on the banks of the Ganges River. The hotel arranged a personal guided tour of the rainforest, where they shared tea with a family who lives in the forest in a small thatched house.

They returned to New Delhi via train, where our driver met them at the train station and escorted them back to their hotel for their last night in New Delhi.
