Meet Mt. Everest guide Maya Sherpa

Day 4

In Kathmandu, Maya Sherpa speaks about climbing Everest

The first Nepalese woman to have climbed Mount Everest three times, Maya Sherpa has always been an adventurer at heart. After studying business and working as a licensed trekking guide, she led her first expedition to Everest in 2006. Since then she has reached the summit of some of the world’s most difficult mountains, and is an inspiration to women the world over. “Despite the challenges and hindrances along the way," she says, "nothing is more awesome than knowing I have stepped on the top of the world.”

A jungle safari in Bandhavgarh

Day 13

In search of wildlife in India's Bandhavgarh National Park

Within the forested landscapes of central India's Bandhavgarh National Park, big cats hunt, herds of deer graze and packs of wild dogs mark their territory. Rare Bengal tigers share protected reserves with jungle cats and leopards, hunting antelopes, gazelle, deer and wild boar as hyenas wait for leftovers. A game drive here begins at daybreak in an open-topped jeep, with expert trackers, into the heart of the Bandhavgarh Forest. Keep your camera handy to “capture” any wildlife you encounter. Because they are masters of camouflage, it is rare to spot the elusive tigers in the jungle foliage... but if you do, you'll never forget it!

The Oberoi Amarvilas, Agra

Nights 9 and 10

A stone's throw from the Taj Mahal

The readers of Condé Nast Traveler named The Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra to the prestigious Gold List, and the readers of Travel + Leisure rank it as one of the world’s best hotels. Situated just 600 meters from the iconic Taj Mahal, each of its guest rooms affords uninterrupted views of this ancient monument to love, while elements of the layout and design pay homage to its Mughal splendor; it is surrounded by terraced lawns, fountains, reflecting pools and pavilions with rich interiors that are reminiscent of the days of princes and emperors.

This was an adventure of a lifetime. It was filled with action each and every day and each day brought about another memorable moment.
