The State of Rajasthan is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful region of India. Rajasthan's many princely states, impressive forts and magnificent palaces set in the Thar desert evoke uniquely colourful images of medieval India. Rajasthan means land of Rajas or Kings but it is also called as Rajputana "the country of Rajputs". The Aravali mountain range, one of the oldest mountain ranges of the world, extending from north to south, divides the state into two natural regions. Aravali range and the Thar Desert are the two most contrasting features of Rajasthan's geographical make-up. Vibrant colours, music and festivals make the golden sand come alive. The tour of Rajasthan Hadoti Region is as the tales of the Thousand and One Nights and it will be an unforgettable memory.


Day 01. Flight to India
Around Midnight arrival in
Delhi. The cosmopolitan City and capital Delhi is the main gateway for travelers. You are met by an Indo Vacations representative and transferred to your Hotel.

Day 02. Old - New Delhi
This morning is at leisure. Afternoon sightseeing in Old Delhi. We take a Rickshaw Ride parallel to the
Red Fort through the old city and famous Silk Road and Silver Bazaar. Sightseeing of Old Delhi includes "Rajghat", the site where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated and Jama Masjid, the great mosque of old Delhi. Today we also visit the famous "Humayun Tomb". Humayun Tomb is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India. Before we proceed to the Hotel we drive through the embassy area in New Delhi where we visit the India Gate and see some impressive Government Buildings.

Day 03. Delhi - Agra (about 180 km)
In the morning we visit "
Qutub Minar" which is 71 meter high and consists of five stories. In 1199 work began on this tower which was intended to be the most glorious tower of victory in the world. This tower was damaged twice and repaired in 1326 and 1368. After the sightseeing of Delhi we drive to Agra. Arrival in Agra in the evening.

Day 04. Agra
We start today our sightseeing by a visit to the
Agra Fort, built by three of the greatest Mughal emperors. The construction of this massive structure began in 1565 under Akbar's reign and continued till the time of his grandson's reign, Shah Jahan who built the impressive imperial quarters and mosque. After the visit of Agra fort, we proceed to visit the most beautiful monument of India, the Taj Mahal, an enduring monument to love, with a continually fulfilling beauty. It was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan between 1631-52, as a tomb and memorial to his beloved wife Mumtaz Mahal (Jewel of the Palace), who died at the age of 39 giving birth to her 14th child. We spend enough time at Taj Mahal to take this impressive memory home. After the visit of Taj Mahal we have a look at the famous fine marble inlay work which is still being done in Agra by the descendants of the families of builders and artists of the Taj Mahal.

Day 05. Bhandarej
Today we leave Agra, drive through a series of fields, small towns and villages in direction of Bhandarej. Enroute we make a stop and visit
Fatehpur Sikri, which was once an imperial capital frozen in time, constructed by Akbar the Great in the 16th century. This wonderful city constructed by red sand stones was abandoned as abruptly as it had been built. It has been generally stated that it was due to failing in the water supply. Late evening arrival in Bhandarej. Rest of the day at leisure.

Day 06. Bhandarej - Ranthambore
Today after the breakfast we leave for the
Ranthambore. After a break and refreshment at our hotel in Ranthambore we will explore the Ranthambore National Park on a Jeep. Ranthambore National Park is surrounded by the Vindhyas and the Aravali mountains and covers an area of 392 square km. The Tiger is the biggest attraction of the Ranthambore National Park.

Day 07. Ranthambore - Kota
In the early morning we again explore the park on jeeps. After the Jeep Safari and perhaps with the memories of our encounter with tiger we leave for
Kota. The town of Kota was once the part of the erstwhile Rajput kingdom of Bundi. In Kota we will visit the city fort and palace, this type of fort-palace complex is one of the largest to be found in the state of Rajasthan.

Day 08. Kota - Bundi - Kota
Today we have an excursion to the fort city of
Bundi. Bundi is most famous for its baoris (step wells) as there are many impressive ones. On the top of the hill is majestic Taragarh Fort of Bundi, the interesting fort is worth exploring for hours. The fort has many reservoirs, which are annually emptied flooding the streets leading down to the city. After the whole day excursion we return to Kota in the evening.

Day 09. Kota - Chittorgarh
After the breakfast, we drive to
Chittorgarh. In the noon we visit the Chittorgarh Fort, the world famous fort of Rajasthan. On the crest of the enormous grey hill, girdled by massive walls and seven majestic gateways, one stumbles upon shattered palaces, a "Temple of Mirabai" - the mystic poetess and the intricately carved nine storeyed Tower of Fame, built in the 12th Century in honour of Lord Adinath, the first Jain Tirthankara.

Day 10. Chittorgarh - Pushkar (about 209 km)
Today we leave Chittorgarh and drive to
Pushkar. Pushkar being one of the most religious places for Hindus has the atmosphere of an ancient religious town. The only temple of God Brahma is in Pushkar thus making Pushkar an important pilgrimage city for Hindus. Pushkar has become famous in the world due to its Pushkar Festival which takes place in the month of November when the whole of Pushkar is transformed into a spectacular fair ground where thousands of pilgrims come to bath in the holy water of Pushkar lake and the biggest cattle and camel markets take place here where Farmers, breeders and camel traders buy and sell. (if this tour takes place during the time of Pushkar Festival we spend 2 nights stay in Pushkar instead of one and therefore the duration of this Tour will be extended for one more day making it 17 days tour.)

Day 11. Pushkar - Jodhpur (about 220 km)
Early morning, after the breakfast we leave the holy city of Pushkar and drive to
Jodhpur. The city was once the capital of the princely state of Marwar (Land of death). Jodhpur is the second largest city in Rajasthan. Jodhpur is also known as the blue city as most of the houses of the old city are painted blue. The old city is surrounded by a huge 10 km long wall which has 101 bastions and seven gates. Jodhpur lies on the once strategic Delhi-Gujarat trading route and the marwaris got benefited from the passing traffic of opium, copper, silk which was traded to China. We will visit the Mehrangarh Fort (majestic fort). Mehrangarh Fort was built on a steep hill and is among the best in India with exquisitely latticed windows in residential apartments within. We also visit the Jaswant Thada, a royal cenotaph built in white marble. After the sightseeing we have a walk through the Bazaars of Jodhpur.

Day 12. Jodhpur - Jaisalmer (about 290 km)
Today we drive through the desert and proceed for
Jaisalmer via Osian. Osian is a great centre of Hindu and Jain religions. The oldest Temple here was constructed in 1178 AD. We have the rest of the day at leisure and therefore enough time to relax.

Day 13. Jaisalmer
Sightseeing of the medieval city of Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer's crenellated golden sandstone walls and its narrow streets lined with exquisitely carved buildings makes this city unique. Jaisalmer is famous for its carved havellis (grand mansions). In medieval times, its prosperity was due to its location on the main trade route linking India to Egypt, Arabia, Africa and the West. Jaisalmer is a marvel of beautiful culture and this city remains one of the most exotic city not only in Rajasthan but in the whole of India. Some of the visitors called this city "a living museum". We have a walk through the old city and visit the
Fort and the Jain temple. In the afternoon we drive around 40 km away from Jaisalmer to Sam dunes where we enjoy the sunset before we drive back to Jaisalmer.

Day 14. Jaisalmer - Bikaner
Today we drive through the desert and proceed for
Bikaner. After a short break in Bikaner we visit the Junagarh Fort (1571-1611 AD) constructed of red sandstone and marble with kiosks and balconies embellishing the structure at intervals. This imposing Fort and its palaces are an unforgettable experience for us. In the evening we drive to Deshnok to visit Karni Devi Temple, famous haven of rats.

Day 15. Bikaner - Mandawa
After having our breakfast we take leave from Bikaner and we drive to
Mandawa in the Shekhawati region. Shekhawati is in the north east region of Rajasthan and is the homeland of marwaris.

Arrival in Mandawa in the evening. The rest of the day at leisure.

Day 16. Mandawa - Delhi
