Best time to go
Everything about Rajasthan fascinates a visitor to this exotic land. From the shimmering sands of the Thar Desert in the west across the Aravalli hills to the great cities of the eastern plains, this historic Indian heartland captivates all with echoes of a glorious past.
We see a dazzling palette of colours all around. Visit glittering palaces and imposing forts and experience traditional hospitality - an important ingredient of the local culture. We start our tour with a sunset visit to the incomparable Taj Mahal in Agra
followed by a thrilling encounter with wild tigers at Ranthambore National Park.
We explore Rajasthan’s rich heritage in Jaipur –also called the Pink City, and at Pushkar – a pilgrimage site famous for its Brahma temple and the holy lake – one of India’s most beautiful locations. For a completely different experience we journey into
the Thar Desert on a full-day camel safari and spend a cool tranquil night under the stars in a desert camp. Later in the tour, a gentle three-day trek through the rolling Aravalli hills – marked by beautiful meadows, wild forests, plunging waterfalls and an array of birdlife – brings another aspect of Rajasthan into focus. Along the way we also visit Kumbalgarh Fort and the magnificent Jain temple of Ranakpur.
The final leg of our tour journeys south to romantic Udaipur with its majestic palace and glittering temples ranged around a serene lake.
