Maha Parinirvan - "Buddhist Special Train" in India

Jump to last reply

I read about this in a magazine (Look East) while I was in Bangkok.

It's a special train that visits Buddhist sites in India (as well as a couple of other special places such as Varanasi and Agra). 8 days/7 nights, the package includes rail fare, hotel accommodation (4 star horels such as Nikko and Clarkes), food, sightseeing, entrabce and guides all for US$1050 per person in First Class ac cars. It starts and ends in New Dehli.

It's a quck trip, but it makes a number of Buddhist sites more accessible.

You can see the full itinerary at www.indiarailtours.com/buddhist-special-train.html

This is on our list of trips to consider for 2008. Anyone have any knowledge of this or any comments?
