Namaste! Welcome to Gurugram (the city formerly known as Gurgaon), a bustling tech-suburb of the capital of India – New Delhi, your first stop on your Vegan Travel Asia by VegVoyages’ Green Triangle Adventure! Your adventure starts at 9:00 AM. A teaming metropolis rolling into the modern age with new highways and skyscrapers, Delhi still manages to retain much of its historical charm with its lively bazaars, captivating temples, and winding streets lined with shops and roadside vendors. A fusion of the old and new, Delhi’s streets are filled with cows, goats, bicycles, and rickshaws that all share space with taxis, trucks, cars, and the largest eco-friendly CNG bus network in the world. As we take in Delhi, remember its history doesn’t just date back centuries, but millenniums – the area originally being settled in the 6th century BC. Heading out into the historical streets of India’s vibrant, bustling, and at times chaotic capital city, we’ll also include a visit to the Gandhi Smriti where Gandhi spent his last days. In the evening, we’ll settle down for our Orientation Meeting where you’ll have a chance to get to know your fellow travelers and adventure leaders better while we discuss the adventure ahead. After our Orientation Meeting, we will enjoy a delicious dinner of local vegan delicacies.

Highlights of the Day:

  • Detailed Orientation Meeting where you will get to know your fellow travelers and adventure leaders better. Discuss the adventure ahead and have our introduction to Rajasthan’s History, Cultures, and Diversity Presentation.
  • Explore the historical street of India’s vibrant, bustling, and at times chaotic capital city.
  • Visit the Gandhi Smriti where Gandhi spent the last 144 days of his life before he was assassinated on these grounds in 1948. This somber museum is a great tribute and a place to learn about the extraordinary work Gandhi did in leading India to independence through non-violence.
  • Visit the Gurudwara Rakab Ganj – a Sikh temple built-in 1783 that has become a popular Sikh pilgrimage site and is an important center of the Sikh community in Delhi.
  • The first taste of India – in India, vegan dinner.

Sign me up for another Vegan Travel Asia (VegVoyages). There is nothing to compare! I must say that it is (still) the most exciting and fantastic tour I have been on or could ever dream of!… What filled our souls was the immersion in the images, sounds, colors, smells, people, and life in the real Indian towns, large and small, that Vegan Travel Asia (VegVoyages) shared with us. It is impossible to convey the personal impact of this tour. It was amazing! Thank you so much.


Today we will travel well off the beaten track as we head into the hinterlands of Rajasthan to the rustic yet charming town of Kishangarh. Located in the heart of one of the old princely states of Rajputana (as the area was referred to before independence), we’ll traverse the desert back roads of Rajasthan before arriving at our home for the next two days – the romantic Phool Mahal Palace located in the heart of the old Kingdom of Kishangarh! Built-in 1870 just outside the walls of the massive Kishangarh Fort, Phool Mahal was actually the Royal Family’s monsoon palace. So during our stay at this lovely lakeside palace, be on the lookout for kites, peacocks, herons, and wild ducks that call the nearby fields and monsoon fed Gundalao Lake their home.

You’ll notice in Kishangarh that the defensive fortifications are pretty intimidating! But even though the formidable fort walls and elephant spiked gates distinctly highlight the kingdom’s chivalrous past, the Maharajas here was also known as patrons of the arts and the area’s paintings, including those that adorn the palace walls. So while here, in addition to learning about life in old Kishangarh, we will have an introduction to the traditional Rajasthani art of painting including learning about its symbolism, history, and artistic techniques that have been passed down for generations. We’ll also explore the colorful bazaars, narrow lanes, colorful centuries-old streets, and temples of this ancient princely state founded in 1611 AD and of course – enjoy plenty of its delicious local cuisines all specially veganized just for us.

Highlights of the Day:

  • Morning traditional yoga sessions at the palace (based on the early practice forms of yoga from its birthplace in India).
  • Visit the epic Chand Baoli. Said to be the deepest and largest step-well in India, Chand Baoli dates back over half a millennium.
  • Guests of the local community temple where we’ll join in their aarti ceremony (Hindu Ritual), an important part of everyday life in India.
  • Explore old town Kishangarh and learn about the local way of life and history of the different communities living here.
  • A special evening of traditional folk music and dance, followed by a traditional Rajasthani Vegan Feast.
  • Introduction and lesson to India’s most famous sport and favorite national pastime – cricket.
  • Explore the formidable Kishangarh Fort, learning about the Kingdom’s rich history.
  • Cultural Q&A program – in the royal hall of the palace, over drinks and snacks. We’ll have our “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about India but was Afraid to Ask” cultural questions and answer session.
  • Explore and have special vegan lunch at Roopangarh Fort. Built by Maharaja Roop Singh in 1648, we’ll explore this ancient citadel that is a captivating example of Rajput defensive architecture, complete with spiked gates and thick walls – evidence of its chivalrous past.
  • Papads & Beer Tasting, where we’ll sample the many varieties of papad found in Rajasthan and the refreshing vegan-friendly beers of India.
  • Join an expert on the region’s arts for our introduction to traditional Rajasthani paintings. What a better place to learn about Rajasthan’s legendary paintings than in the old kingdom that gave birth to the critically acclaimed Kishangarh style of art that became famous throughout the continent including home to its most famous work, Bani Thani, which is heralded by critics as the Mona Lisa of India.

What a trip! My daughter and I took the Vegan Travel Asia (VegVoyages) trip to Gujarat (Badlands, Beasts, Temples & Beaches). I had high expectations about going to India (Bucket List place!) and VegVoyages surpassed all of them. The level of detail is so high, each place we stayed was completely unique, we felt that we were part of a family with our guides, the people were warm and friendly, and the food THE FOOD was amazing! Oh yeah, and we saw lions on safari! Really what more can I say? Other than that, it was obvious that within our small group, there were over half that were repeat customers - and that says a lot. I hope to join them and go on another trip within a few years!


After a hearty breakfast, we’re off to the capital of Rajasthan – Jaipur! The City of Victory, the Pink City – whatever name Jaipur has been called or title it’s held, one thing is certain, it has intrigued and seduced travelers, wanderers, caravans, and adventurers throughout its colorful history. Enticed by the legends, wealth, and history it holds within its walls – the kingdom has drawn people for centuries from the furthest points on the globe. The city you see today was founded in the 1700s, though the history of settlements in the area dates back to the 12th century. Rich in history, arts and architecture; Jaipur’s unique design was built using Vastu Shastra – the Indian version of Feng Shui. The desert terrain around the city consists of the rugged hills of the Aravallis, the oldest mountain range in India – where rulers constructed gated passes, walls, palaces, and forts in epic proportions.

Over the next two days, we’ll explore Jaipur giving you a real taste of the city. Speaking of taste, Indian vegan fare is truly a unique blend of fragrant spices, fresh veggies, flavorsome herbs, and delectable bread and rice dishes. This being said, while here we’ll meet up with a local chef who will teach us how to prepare a delicious full course Rajasthani vegan feast. We’ll also visit a very special animal hospital that has been helping locally abused and neglected animals as well as standing up for our four-legged friends without a voice, for almost three decades.

Highlights of the Day:

  • Visit the awesome Amber Fort. The ancient seat of the present ruling Rajput clan of Jaipur before they moved their capital to its current location, Amber Fort is perched amongst rugged hills, the massive Fort is an impressive fusion of Hindu and Muslim architecture built from sandstone and marble.
  • Guests of our hosts and friends where we’ll enjoy Rajasthani hospitality with drinks and a Jaipuri vegan feast.
  • Visit an incredible animal rescue that is at the forefront of animal protection in and around Jaipur.
  • Visit a bustling local bazaar – veggie and fruit market.
  • Cultural Culinary Experience, introduction to Indian-Chinese Cuisine, also known as Indo-Chinese Cuisine. A unique fusion where Chinese spices and cooking methods are adapted to fit the Indian palate, its origins trace back to the Chinese who settled in Calcutta between the late 1700-1900s.
  • Visit Jaipur’s opulent Royal City Palace, Jantar Mantar (the old royal astronomical gardens), and Birla Temple.
  • Cultural Culinary cooking class where we’ll learn to cook up a Rajasthani feast.

I went on a phenomenal tour of Rajasthan / India with Vegan Travel Asia (VegVoyages). The guides are friendly, caring, knowledgable, and interesting, the food is delicious and memorable, and the sights are spectacular. We stayed at a number of gorgeous castles during our trip. I cannot imagine a better tour of India! Thank you Sinjee and Zac!


Saying goodbye to Jaipur we’ll hit the road for Bharatpur – home of the UNESCO protected World Heritage Site: the Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary National Park. After checking in to our hotel and freshening up, we’ll head into the national park. A haven of wetlands and forests, the sanctuary is home to over 400 species of birds and a wide variety of other wildlife. We’ll explore the park in the late afternoon and early evening by bicycle traversing the back trails of the sanctuary with our naturalist guide. The next morning, after a hearty vegan breakfast, we’ll make our way into the neighboring state of Uttar Pradesh to the city of Agra where we will visit India’s most famous landmark – the stunning Taj Mahal. The Taj of course needs no introduction. It is a remarkable mausoleum built by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan as a tribute to his favorite wife, Mumtaj Mahal.

After visiting the Taj, we will enjoy some delightful dosas at Agra’s best South Indian eatery. Then we will make our way to the ghost city of Fatehpur Sikri. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Fatehpur Sikri was built in the 16th century by Emperor Akbar. These well-preserved ruins were the capital of the Mughal Empire between 1571-1585 AD before being deserted. From Fatehpur Sikri, we’ll return to Bharatpur where you’ll have time to freshen up before we meet for our farewell dinner party on our last night in India together!

Highlights of the Day: 

  • Visit the epic Chand Baoli. Said to be the deepest and largest step-well in India. Chand Baoli dates back over half a millennium.
  • Explore the wetlands and learn about the abundant wildlife that calls the World Heritage Site protected Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary their home. A haven of wetlands and forests, the sanctuary is home to between 366 to over 400 species of birds including a selection of herons believed to be among the best in the world, and a wide variety of wildlife including over 27 species of mammals.
  • Take in the majestic and marvelous Taj Mahal! India’s most famous landmark, it earned the prestigious title of being one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The Taj Mahal was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1983 to help preserve what is recognized as the best example of Islamic art in the country.
  • Explore the richly historical ghost city and ancient Mughal capital of Fatehpur Sikri. Fatehpur Sikri’s architecture is a combination of Islamic and Hindu elements, as Emperor Akbar was known as one of the most open-minded of the Mughal Emperors. Today it is listed as a World Heritage Site.
  • Special Farewell Dinner Party with drinks, snacks, and a vegan feast of our favorite Rajasthani dishes for dinner.

I sought out Vegan Travel Asia (VegVoyages) because I was looking for a trip I could take where I wouldn't have to try to explain what a vegan eats in a foreign language and end up starving or getting sick. I went on the 8-day India tour and was blown away. Not only was the food amazing (I was so stuffed the whole time) but the attention to detail from start to finish was above and beyond. There is no way I would have had such a deep cultural experience if I had tried to plan this trip on my own. I was so hooked that I decided to go with them again on the Thailand tour last month. Now I am ruined for life. I don't think I ever want to travel without them. Good thing for me they have lots more adventures to discover. Do yourself a favor and give them a try. I dare you to be disappointed


After breakfast, we’ll head back to Delhi/Gurugram where your adventure ends upon arrival back at our hotel after our last vegan lunch together. Bahut, bahut dhanyavaad (thank you very much) for choosing a Vegan Travel Asia by VegVoyages tour.

Vegan Meals Included Today: Breakfast and Lunch
