Set in northwestern India near the Pakistan border, Amritsar is where we begin our culture-filled journey through India and Nepal. You can feel this city's deep connection to the Sikh religion as we travel through the streets to our hotel, where we have time to freshen up before heading out for the evening. Our excursion takes us to the Wagah Border, which separates Pakistan and India, to witness the Beating Retreat Ceremony. This unique ceremony has occurred every night at sunset since 1959 and was created to foster cooperation between the two nations. Watch as the Pakistan Rangers and Border Security Forces of India perform an unusual parade of sorts, complemented by high kicks and the lowering and folding of the nations' flags to conclude the day. Overnight Amritsar.
