Have you only got a few days to spend in India? Then the Golden-Triangle might be something for you: Delhi – Jaipur – Agra – Delhi.

A highlight / must-see is without a doubt the Taj Mahal.

Even on this short trip you will have to make choices, there are so many things to see. I am willing to think along about what is realistic and practical to do in the days you have available.


Golden Triangle

Halfway Delhi and Jaipur is the Neemrana Fort Palace where you can enjoy a cup of coffee, tea or lunch. You may want to spend the night in this fabulous entourage. It comes with a price, however.

Just ahead of Jaipur are the Amber Fort and the Nahargarh Fort with a magnificent view over Jaipur. Additionally Sikandra / Mathura / Vrindavan / Deeg / Alwar / Sariska NP / Ranthambhore NP are worth visiting as well.
