Rajasthan: Decadence, Deserts, and Desserts
India - Rajasthan - Decadence, Deserts, and Desserts
This special trip blends the luxury of Rajasthan - its palaces, forts, and art – with the charm of the desert and the radiance of its people. Moreover, you have a chance to taste the rich culture of Delhi and Agra along the way.
Your program begins at the Imperial in Delhi. From here, you visit the Old City and get a sense of the religious and cultural diversity of the place. Next, you travel to Udaipur, with its lake, palaces, and bustling old city, as well as its beautiful countryside. Crossing the desert, you head to Jodhpur and then on to Nagaur to enjoy the festival in the winter and the town in the fall.
Your path takes a turn towards the Shekavati area of Rajasthan and then Jaipur follows, famous not only for its palaces, but art, textiles and jewelry. From Jaipur, you drive to Agra and the Taj, via Fatehpur Sikri, before heading full circle back to Delhi.
Along the way, you have some unique treats – a walk through Delhi with some children, a cooking lesson in Udaipur, camel safari in the desert and, in February, the Nagaur Cattle Festival.
