Routing Delhi - Amritsar - Pragpur - Mc Leodgunj - Shimla - Rishikesh - Nainital - Kausani - Jim Corebtt - Delhi departure

The Golden Temple is the ultimate Sikh pilgrimage. The Harmandir Sahib, as it is traditionally known, actually means the temple of Hari or the Supreme God. Also known as the Darbar Sahib, the stupendous, architectural phenomena is located in the city of Amritsar. The temple's exterior is gold-plated and the structure stands in the middle of a square tank. There is a causeway across the Pool of Nectar to reach the Temple. We further visit Shimla (2130M), the summer capital of British Raj, the queen of hill. The hill station of Shimla is famous for tourist activity. A quaint little hill train chugs up into the Shivalik foothills, over dramatic loops and high arched bridges to the hill resort of Shimla (2130 m) - the capital of the mountain state of Himachal. We add in this program Rishikesh the holy city of every Hindu, Rishikesh the supreme Pilgrimage invites millions of pilgrims on the auspicious dates when pilgrims try to get the drop of nectar through the holy dips at Haridwar and Rishikesh.
