Itinerary

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

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

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Fern Residency
  • Day 2
    Jodhpur
    • Explore the city of Jodhpur.

      Post breakfast, proceed for a tour of Jodhpur starting with the mighty Mehrangarh Fort. While Rajasthan is sprinkled generously with a number of forts, Mehrangarh Fort 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 where you will discover antique artillery that defended the fort during its time. Inside the fort, visit sections of the palaces with their delicate friezes and respective museums, displaying treasures of the royal family.
      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, you could also visit some of the adjoining sections of the museum around the courtyard.
      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'sred 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 Makhaniya lassi for a trueRajasthaniexperience.
      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, we will head back to the hotel.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Fern Residency
  • Day 3
    Jodhpur
    • Enjoy an excursion to Ranakpur.

      Enjoy a relaxed breakfast. Begin the day with an excursion to the beautiful Jain temples in Ranakpur.

      Hidden deep in the Aravalli hills, some 199 km from Jodhpur, is Ranakpur. It boasts of 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.

      Later in the afternoon, return to Jodhpur.

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