Indian Luxury Trains have made rapid strides in the niche of luxury travel and their itineraries have ensured that all the guests on all of the 6 trains across 12 odd journeys gain favorable exposure to the Indian culture. Each Luxury Train Tours in India is handpicked and planned keeping in mind the physical rating and cultural shock value of the journey.

All said and done, we still believe there is one other hypothetical luxury train tour that guests, especially from outside India, will enjoy and appreciate. So we went all out, devising this luxury train tour. In fact, we even gave it an imaginary, but fitting name. Let us know what you think of the suggested journeys and mail us back if you have any other ideas for luxury train tours.

Indian Luxury Trains


Name: The Buddhist Trail

Duration – 10 Nights/11 Days

Destinations: Delhi – Lucknow – Kathmandu – Gangtok – Guwahati – Shillong – Patna – Varanasi – Agra – Delhi

Currently, there are no luxury train itineraries that run towards northeastern India, despite this section being such a major hit with tourists looking for adventure as well as spiritual and cultural tours. The states of Uttar Pradesh, Sikkim, Meghalaya, and Assam are natural pots, full of landscapes that will amaze even the biggest of skeptics.

Although some of the suggested destination cities such as Delhi, Agra, and Varanasi are already featured in some of the present itineraries, we have added the other destinations only after analyzing their present and past contribution to India’s cultural development. And we have added Kathmandu, “the capital of the Himalayan Kingdom” as a two-day detour. The inclusion of Gangtok, Patna, and Varanasi has been done to enhance the tour’s spiritual value.

We’ll add a lot more features to our itinerary in the subsequent posts. Do write back to us if you have anything to contribute.
