Delhi, Shimla & Chandigarh / Journey to the Himalayan Foothills

From the clamour and colours of vibrant Delhi, to the highest mountain ranges on the planet, a journey through this majestic region promises an unforgettable experience.

Start by sampling a taste of Delhi – the sights, sounds and smells are a spectacular feast for the senses. Journeying into the foothills of the Himalayas, the unbridled luxurious accommodation and unparalleled levels of service by the prestigious Oberoi Hotels & Resorts awaits. Shimla is a popular hill station and although a well-developed city, nature can be felt everywhere you go with trekking, mountain biking and heritage walks being the main draw.

Flying south, Chandigarh is a people-oriented city of sweeping boulevards, lakes, landscaped gardens and grand civic buildings designed by Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier in the 50s. Here you’ll retreat to the edges of Siswan Forest to a peaceful sanctuary where mindfulness and wellbeing are the order of the day.

Today, discover the city on a guided tour. In Old Delhi, the Indian spirit and vibe you’ve imagined comes alive on a rickshaw ride through the buzzing bazaars of chaotic Chandni Chowk, before visits to noteworthy historical sites including 17th century Jama Masjid, the Mughal empire’s Red Fort and Raj Ghat where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated. In New Delhi, explore one-time imperial residences and war memorials including The Presidential Palace and India Gate. (BB)

Shimla, in the Himalayas

Shimla, in the Himalayas

Fly to Chandigarh, before a long transfer up to Wildflower Hall, An Oberoi Resort for a three-night stay. Boasting endless vistas of the sweeping Himalayan valleys from almost every angle, the hotel itself is enveloped within pine and cedar-flanked forests - the remote location alone is worth every minute of the five hour drive. Journey through the lush green misty mountains aboard the historic UNESCO World Heritage Kalka-Shimla Toy Train, as it zigzags through the lofty pines. Shimla’s must-see landmarks include a Hindu temple and Viceregal Lodge - the British Viceroy of India’s immaculate stately home and former summer residence. A stroll back along the Mall to Scandal Point offers a chance to look inside Christ Church and Gaiety Theatre. (BB)

Day /6 - 7

Chandigarh

Journey back to Chandigarh for a two-night stay at The Oberoi Sukhvilas Resort & Spa. Against a backdrop of the Siswan Forest Range the resort presents a peaceful place for some R&R. Rise early to the echoing sounds of wildlife and experience the therapeutic natural powers of ‘forest bathing’. A private guided tour of India’s first planned city will take in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Capital Complex, as well as Rock Garden – a huge open-air exhibition that has recycled discarded items and junk into eccentric sculptures and art. Later there’s a chance to go yachting and rowing at Sukhna Lake at the foothills of the majestic Shivalik range. (BB)
