Not "das Erlebnis"?

Might be both. "That trip to india was a real experience." – Erlebnis and Erfahrung would both fit here, depending on how the trip went. Erlebnis usually sounds a little more adventurous (and can also be translated to adventure), while Erfahrung is more educating (and can also be translated to know-how).
