In October 2011 we went with Katia on a lesser known, amazingly beautiful (and even a bit dangerous) trip Leh - Manali - Dharamsala- Amritsar - Jaipur - Agra - Varanasi - Delhi. It is perfect for those interested in really exploring country's culture, instead of checking in touristy places on facebook. Tibetan part of India is probably even more authentic than the one under China. Katia is really good, working on new trips to Kashmir, Sikkim. India is very diverse and has a lot to offer aside from well known southern beaches. It is wonderful that there are people who can help you explore all of it.
