Head to India’s capital of Delhi and wander the streets of one of the oldest cities in the world.

Nature lovers and keen hikers are well looked after in Nepal, which is home to the soaring Himalayan peaks. Hiking here is not only legendary but accessible too; there are routes suitable for all walkers.
