Travel Module: Taj Mahal Agra

Introduction

Round off your stay in India with a trip to India‘s best known landmark, the majestic Taj Mahal. Also the visit of the Red Fort, which was built by Emperor Akbar, and the deserted city of Fatehpur Sikri dating from the 16th century are integrated in this travel module.

Optionally, you enhance your visit to Agra with an excursion to rural India: you visit rural villages, and experience the daily life of the farmers and their families. Go for a rickshaw ride into the wetlands of the small bird sanctuary Keoladeo National Park (Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary) and discover here the wonderful variety of exotic birds.

You can also connect your Agra visit with a trip to the Chambal Valley: Observe during an inspiring river boating excursion the diverse wildlife of this still completely natural environment - or explore the surrounding villages and idyllic natural landscapes on foot, by jeep or even on the camel back.
