Jodhpur, located at the edge of the Thar desert is a sea of blue brick houses. It was once the capital of the former princely state of Marwar, and is now the second largest city of Rajasthan. While the graceful palaces, forts and temples bring Jodhpur's historic grandeur alive, exquisite handicrafts, folk dances, music and the brightly attired people lend a romantic aura to the city.

With stunning marble palaces overlooking pristine lakes, all surrounded by the omnipresent Aravalli hills, Udaipur has all the ingredients of a romantic and dreamy destination. Everything you see, touch and smell in the Venice of the East will leave you wanting more.

This tour attempts to unfold all this and an opportunity to understand, experience and enjoy her sublime beauty, though demystifying this land would amount to a work in progress.

    • Welcome to Jodhpur! On arrival at the airport in Jodhpur, the airline staff would escort you through customs, immigration formalities and baggage collection, to the exit at arrival terminal where an Enable Travel representative will receive you with a placard bearing your name.

  • Day 2
    Jodhpur
    • Explore the Mehrangarh Fort.

      After breakfast, proceed for a tour of Jodhpur starting with the mighty Mehrangarh Fort. While Rajasthan is sprinkled generously with a number of forts, Mehrangarh Forts stands out from the lot. Perched on top of a 125-metre high hill, the fort is as imposing as it is magnificent. Get ready to be immersed in legends that whisper through the walls of this monument. Visit the ramparts and discover antique artillery that defended the fort during its time. Inside the fort, still run by the Maharaja of Jodhpur, visit sections of the palaces with their delicate friezes and respective museums, displaying treasures of the royal family.

      Though you will be accompanied by a local guide, you may want to take the audio tour, as it is a part of your entrance ticket. Due to the architectural layout of this majestic fort, only a few sections are accessible using a wheelchair, which are really worth the visit.

      The entry to the fort is slightly rough through a pretty uneven walkway; the wheelchair can reach the elevator which will take you straight to the point that offers a bird's eye view of the blue houses. You can now head to the Daulat Khana Chowk, one of the most important courtyards, which is a part of the museum. As you sail through this area, listen to the royal family's anecdotes in the wonderfully scripted audio tour, gaze at the craftsmanship that was once described by Rudyard Kipling as 'The Work of Angels and Giants' and get transported back in time. With a bit of assistance, also visit some of the adjoining sections of the museum around the courtyard.

    • The rest of the evening is at leisure to relax.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Fern Residency
  • Day 3
    Jodhpur
    • Explore the city of Jodhpur.

      Seated like a royal on your comfortable wheelchair, how about getting lost into the heart of Jodhpur? Yes, we are talking about your visit to the century-old clock tower - a prominent landmark surrounded by the vibrant sounds, sights and smells of Sardar Market, which is marked by triple gateways at its northern and southern ends. Plunge into the old city's commercial heart with crowded alleys and bazaars selling vegetables, Mathaniya's red chilli, spices, bamboo, wooden handicrafts and sweets. And don't forget to sample the uniquely stimulating flavours of tea as well as the uniquely popular Makhania lassi for a true Rajasthani experience.

      Though the entry to the clock tower is through an uneven cobbled pathway, its age-old character more than makes up for this. Post this eventful day, head back to the hotel.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Fern Residency
  • Day 4
    Jodhpur - Udaipur
    • Transfer from hotel in Jodhpur to hotel in Udaipur, en route visit Ranakpur.

      Post a sumptuous breakfast, embark on a picturesque drive through the rugged, wooded hills of the Aravallis, to Udaipur, the City of Lakes (a journey of 280 km / approx.7 hours drive) with an enroute visit to Ranakpur.

      Ranakpur is hidden deep in the Aravalli hills. It boasts some of the most exquisite Jain temples in the country famous for their intricate friezes and sculptures. 1,444 intricately carved marble pillars spread out over 48,000 sq. ft make this one of the most impressive temples you will ever see. What's most interesting is that no two pillars are alike. Two Jain temples dedicated to Neminath and Parsvanath and a Sun Temple a little distance away are also noteworthy.

      The age-old temple architecture could not imbibe provisions for wheelchair users. However, the temple staff is happy to carry you up the steps and around the temple in a palanquin chair provided by them.

      On arrival in Udaipur, check in to your hotel.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Golden Tulip
  • Day 5
    Udaipur
    • Visit the City Palace, Old City market and Saheliyon Ki Bari.

      After a leisurely breakfast, the day begins with your local guide taking you to visit some of the sections of the striking City Palace Complex. Amidst the blocks of pastel-coloured buildings, the City Palace surfaces towards the sky through the rooftops. Lattice balconies and intricately carved windows adorn the exterior of the grand palace, while sparkling mosaic tiles and stain glass embellish its interior.

      Subject to having obtained prior permission from the City Palace Museum authorities, our vehicle can go right up to the entrance of the museum. With an elevator in place, some of the ornate courtyards (Manak Chowk and Mor Chowk), silver gallery and beautiful rooms such as, Priyatam Niwas are very much accessible.

      From the palace we continue onto the Old City market past the ancient Jagdish Temple. There are treasures to be found in this buzzing market, so watch out for colourful and interesting souvenirs that you could take back.

      Later in the afternoon, visit Saheliyon Ki Bari, the Garden of the Maids of Honour, designed as a peaceful retreat outside the old city of Udaipur. This quiet garden presents a perfect fusion of Indian and English architecture. Away from the city humdrum, a good spot to enjoy the tranquility of lush green lawns, fountains, pools, flowers, trees and some marble art. Most parts of this garden are easily accessible for all travellers.
