Travel: Win a tour of The Mogul Empire

Take a trip of a lifetime to Pakistan, India and Nepal with the Independent on Sunday, Dragoman, The Body Shop and Rough Guides

We're giving you the chance to follow in the footsteps of the old Muslim rulers of India on a fabulous 27-night tour of Pakistan, India and Nepal in our competition with Dragoman, The Body Shop and Rough Guides.

You and a friend will fly from London to Islamabad, Pakistan. From there you will join a Dragoman tour group and travel through Pakistan and India to Nepal, taking in highlights such as the historic city of Lahore, the Taj Mahal, the Golden Temple of Amritsar, camel trekking in Jaisalmer, the Amber Palace of Jaipur and Kathmandu.

The prize includes return flights from London and all travel during the trip, 27 nights' accommodation either camping or in hotels, most meals, the use of equipment, the services of a crew and local guides, and national and game park entrance fees. The winner will be allowed to nominate from specified departure dates, subject to availability.

Our winner and companion and 20 runners-up will each win a travel pack of The Body Shop's EAU NO! range, worth pounds 30.25. This innovative travel kit includes shampoo and multi-purpose wash that require no water to use, allowing travellers to freshen-up where access to water is limited and to help to conserve water at the same time. The winner and runners up will also receive a copy of The Rough Guide to India and The Rough Guide to Nepal, the essential guides for travellers venturing off the beaten track.

Dragoman, The Body Shop, and Rough Guides are all committed to responsible travel. The tour's organiser, Dragoman, is one of only three tour operators in the UK to hold the coveted CERT (Certificate for Environmentally Responsible Tourism). For further information, contact Dragoman (tel: 01728 861133), The Body Shop (tel: 01903 731500), or visit the Rough Guides website at www.roughguides.com which covers more than 10,000 destinations.
