What to expect

Although it happens daily, the Wagah Beating Retreat Border ceremony remains moving as a testament of history, culture, and international relations between India and Pakistan. Head out to the Wagah Border with your English speaking guide and watch as you head to the Grand Trunk Road, the only link between India and Pakistan in 1999. In the ceremony, you will watch the soldiers of two nations put on a show of sorts, with the lowering of both flags and a handshake between two nations. Hear about its origins and why it continues to be done to this day before heading off to Amritsar, visiting a local restaurant, and sampling some delicious local cuisine. It’s a great cultural experience you shouldn’t miss in Amritsar.
