After breakfast we will check out from our hotel and leave for the city of Agra – home to the famous Taj Mahal (approx. 4 hour drive).

DAY 4

Agra– Jaipur (246km)

After breakfast we will depart to Jaipur, stopping en route to visit Fatehpur Sikri. Also known as a host city, Fatehpur Sikri was built by Emperor Akbar with the intention of being the most beautiful city ever built. For a while it was, but style must have won over substance! Beautiful yes, but no easy access to water. A few years after it was completed, the town was abandoned and the capital moved to Lahore in present-day Pakistan.

We will then continue on our drive to Jaipur (approx. 4 hour drive), arriving in the afternoon.

  • 4 * Hotel Mansingh or similar
  • Breakfast and Dinner Included
DAY 5

Exploring Jaipur

After breakfast we will go on a half day excursion to Amber Fort, stopping en route at the distinctive landmark of Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds) for a great photo opportunity. It was constructed in 1799 by Maharaja Sawai Pratap Singh to enable ladies of the royal household to watch the life and processions of the city.

Next on our itinerary is Amber Fort, a honey-coloured fortress-palace in the Aravalli Hills that’s been described as the sleeping beauty of Rajasthan. Made out of sandstone and marble, the fort consists of a series of four courtyards, palaces, halls and gardens.

DAY 6

Jaipur- Pushkar (150km)

After breakfast we will drive to a very special place called Pushkar (approx. 3 hours).

Pushkar has a magnetism all of its own – it’s quite unlike anywhere else in Rajasthan. It is one of India’s oldest towns and has the Rajasthan-esque charm and beauty yet, it’s also very unique. It’s believed that Brahma had dropped a lotus here, which resulted in the emergence of a holy lake. The lake has turned Pushkar into a pilgrimage.

DAY 7

Pushkar– Jodhpur (186km)

After breakfast we will drive to Jodhpur (approx. 4 hour drive). When we arrive in the afternoon we will visit the Mehrangarh Fort, which is one of the most magnificent forts in India. The battlements are 6m to 36m high, and as the building materials were chiselled from the rock on which the fort stands, the structure merges with its base. Still run by the Jodhpur royal family, Mehrangarh is packed with history and legends.

  • Breakfast and Dinner Included
DAY 8

Jodhpur– Udaipur (250km)
