Explore the best of the region on our Highlights of Rajasthan tour, soaking up splendid lake palaces, majestic forts, colourful bazaars, and dreamy desert landscapes. After arriving in Delhi, our suggested itinerary takes you to the fairy-tale city of Udaipur, for a two-night stay at the unashamedly opulent Oberoi Udaivilas on the banks of Lake Pichola. In Udaipur, you’ll take in the gargantuan City Palace, shimmering lakes, and the crooked narrow streets of the old city. From Udaipur fly to the Pink City of Jaipur, where the regal Oberoi Rajvilas will be your base whilst exploring highlights such as Amber Fort, the City Palace Museum, and the Hawa Mahal. You’ll also have a day at leisure in Jaipur to hit the colourful markets and emporiums, bursting with rich textiles and unique local handicrafts.
Journey through the Aravalli hills to the Blue City of Jodhpur, for a two-night stay at Raas – a fabulous boutique hotel nestled in the heart of the old city. With magnificent views over the Mehrangarh Fort, a zen-like spa and stunning suites, Raas is one of our favourite places to stay in Rajasthan. Whilst in Jodhpur, you’ll explore the majestic Mehrangarh Fort and Jaswant Thada, take a walking tour through the labyrinthine streets of Sadar Bazaar, and head out to the nearby Bishnoi villages by Jeep. You’ll then continue to Jaisalmer, in the heart of the Thar Desert, for a two-night stay at The Serai – a luxury desert camp seemingly in the middle of nowhere and surrounded by golden sands. A camel ride to the dunes for sundowners will make for a fabulous memory of your time in Rajasthan. The next day you’ll head into the city to discover the fort. Rajasthan’s only remaining living-fort, the complex has a dizzying array of houses, temples and havelis all crammed within its narrow streets.
The Highlights of Rajasthan tour we’ve described here is merely a starting point to share a flavour of the possibilities, and absolutely every aspect is flexible (from the hotels, to the destinations, to the length, to the sightseeing). For example, you may like to stay a bit longer in Delhi in order to explore the highlights of India’s capital city; or, those with tighter schedules may want to omit Delhi entirely, in order to focus on Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur and Jaisalmer. If you’d like to combine this with a visit to the stunning Taj Mahal in Agra, and spot tigers on safari in Ranthambhore, may we suggest our Ultimate Luxury Rajasthan Tour?
