Colours of Rajasthan
13 Nights / 14 Days

Delhi | Mandawa | Bikaner | Jaisalmer | Jodhpur | Udaipur | Pushkar | Jaipur | Agra | Delhi

A journey into mysticism through the land of the unexpected. Rajasthan, the 'Land of Princes’, is full of monuments to its warrior past. The imposing forts of Jodhpur and Jaipur bear testament to the battles that once raged here, whilst the palaces in Udaipur, Fatehpur Sikri and the Taj Mahal offer a softer side to North India's rich history. And then not to forget we have a visit to Pushkar, a place which witnesses every year the world-famous Pushkar Camel Fair. The timeless mystery and beauty of India can be experienced only by visiting this ancient Land. There's just one thing you'll need to travel through 5000 years of culture and tradition- A comfortable pair of shoes.
