Itinerary

  • Day 1
    Arrive Jodhpur
    • Welcome to Jodhpur! On arrival at the airport in Jodhpur, the airline staff will escort you to the exit at the arrival terminal, where an Enable Travel representative will receive you with a placard bearing your name. The representative will guide you to the awaiting vehicle, facilitating your smooth transfer to your hotel and assist with check-in.

      A smooth check in would also involve one of the staff members familiarising you with the layout of the room and the amenities within the hotel premises.

    • The rest of the day is at leisure allowing you to relax in the comfort of the hotel.

    • Meals included: None (meals on your own)
    • Fern Residency
  • Day 2
    Jodhpur
    • Explore the city of Jodhpur.

      Post breakfast, the morning begins with a tour of the monumental Mehrangarh Fort. For a comfortable visit to this fort, a great idea would be to wear proper shoes or sturdy sandals and carry sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses.
      In 1459, Rao Jodha laid the foundation of what was destined to become one of the mightiest forts of all time, Mehrangarh - the citadel of the sun. Today, the beautiful palaces and dazzling period rooms of the fort have been converted into a unique museum that houses an impressive collection of elephant howdahs (seat), palanquins, armoury, paintings, turbans and much more.
      Be prepared to walk on an uneven paved pathway most of the way through the fort, right from the entrance itself. It's a reminder of the days gone by, when the horses' hooves would go clippety-clop over these rocks. As you walk up the hill, soft notes of lilting shehnai music and the heavy beating of drums reach your ears. Yes, you are now at Loha Pol (Iron Gate), the entry gate to the royal palaces.
      Navigating through this majestic fort, as you reach the ramparts (the highest point of the fort), feel the freshness of the breeze hitting your face. You can actually hear the distant humming of the city below.
      Later, dive into the heart of Jodhpur with a walking tour through the ancient town. This is your opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of the area. Learn about interesting legends from the past, peep into the life of locals, and wander through narrow alleyways. The exciting walk ends at the Old Clock Tower vegetable and spice market where you're bound to make new culinary discoveries.
      From here, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
