Detailed Description

A country that has preserved its culture, its rich historic past and above all the pristine beauty of its hinterland, India has always been the land of many possibilities. This journey is designed to take you into the very heart of this land and hopefully kinder a romance between you and this mystic country.

You will begin your journey in the capital city of Delhi; a place that has stood its ground for seven dynasties. Your visit will envisage the old world charm of the Mughal world, the colonial extravagance of the Raj and glimpses of an economically thriving nation. You will witness some of the most impressive architectural masterpieces while you take a tour around the city and walk through one of the busiest and oldest markets of the country.

The next day you will proceed to Agra, a city that was once the capital of the Mughal Empire. The city of Agra, holds one of the greatest treasures of the world- the Taj Mahal. You will visit the monument some time in the evening, while the dying rays of the sun work their magic on the monument and leave you enchanted and overwhelmed.

Later in the day you will proceed onwards to Jaipur . Jaipur is the color washed pink city, the capital of the north-western Rajputana province. The next day will begin with a visit to the fort of Amer, and what better way to do it than making the ascent on an elephant. The rest of the day entails a drive past the Hawa Mahal (palace of winds), the City Palace, the museum and the Jantar Mantar (the observatory).

Shahpura Bagh is your next stop and although most of your day will be at your leisure, you will have a chance to see the Phad painting which depicts Indian mythology and history.

On your second day at Shahpura, you will take a jeep safari to the nearby villages and experience the hospitality of the local villagers. You will then return to the resort and finish your evening with a private candle lit poolside dinner.

Nimaj is a four-hour drive from Shahpura. On your arrival you will check in to beautiful tented camps that face the Chhatra Sagar Lake. The region is known for its exotic birds and varieties of wildlife and you have the option to take a bird watching tour around the region, or visit the nearest village to interact with the locals.

The city of Jaisalmer is located in the driest and most arid part of the country and forms an oasis in the great Thar Desert. Vibrant colors of this city compensate for the stark and scanty contours around. You can experience a camel safari in the dunes of Jaisalmer. Jodhpur, on the other hand, is known as the blue city and is located in the periphery of this dry region. The Mehrangarh Fort could be the highlight of your visit to Jodhpur. The fort juts out of a rocky hill looming over the big blue city known for its colorful market and an old walled city.

Towards the end of your journey, you will travel to the lake city of Udaipur, often referred to as the “Venice of the East.” Before you reach Udaipur, you will make a little stop at the famous Ranakpur Jain Temple, known for its architectural brilliance.

The city of Udaipur has a few surprises to bestow including the City Palace, Durbar Hall, the Crystal Gallery and the Jagdish Temple. The boat ride on Lake Pichola provides a magical experience with the sun receding in the distance, leaving behind a perfect tinge while it disappears beyond the hills of Udaipur.
