The three cities of Agra, Jaipur and Delhi are the most popular tourist destinations in the country. As a result of this, all of them are connected up by roads and rail. This makes travelling from one to another incredibly easy. The name ‘Golden Triangle’ comes from the way in which the cities look on a map. If you drew a line in between each of them, you would end up with something triangular in shape! There is about 250km of distance between the cities.
One of the main reasons as to why people engage in Golden Triangle Tours is because of the relative ease of getting from city to city. Many tour companies will enable you to cover the whole lot within a week if you are pressed for time, but a couple of weeks are probably your safest bet if you want to cover everything
