India, known to be the land of epics and legends, is said to be older than history. Her ancient culture, festivals, fabled forts and palaces, stories of luxurious lifestyles lived by the maharajas and adventures of kings make her an enigma for travelers from all parts of the world. A country of striking contrasts, India pulsates with a spectacular mix of people, traditions and landscapes.

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.

  • Day 1

    • You will arrive at Jodhpur Domestic Airport.

The representative will guide you to the awaiting vehicle, facilitating your smooth transfer to your hotel and assist with check-in (check-in time 1200-1400 hrs/ early check-in are subject to availability).

      Jodhpur, the Blue City, is located on the edge of the Thar Desert, cradled by the massive Mehrangarh Fort on one side, and the stately Palace of Umaid Bhawan on the other. Dotted with monuments, temples and gardens, it is brimming with heritage and culture. Steeped in history, this city is seemingly stuck in a medieval era. There are countless festivities that celebrate the rich past and culture of this princely state. The annual Marwar Festival is a brilliant example.

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

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

      After your breakfast at the hotel, 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-meter 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, which is 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 & 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's red chilli, spices, bamboo, wooden handicrafts and sweets. And don't forget to sample the uniquely stimulating flavors 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, we will head back to the hotel.

    • The rest of the evening is at leisure.

    • Meals included: Breakfast
    • Jagat Niwas
  • Day 3
    Jodhpur - Ranakpur - Udaipur
    • Transfer from hotel in Jodhpur to hotel in Udaipur, en route visit Ranakpur.

      Post a sumptuous breakfast, this morning, embark on a picturesque drive through the rugged, wooded hills of the Arvallis, to Udaipur, the City of Lakes (a journey of 280 km / 7 hrs drive approx) with an en-route visit to Ranakpur.

      Hidden deep in the Aravalli hills, some 90 km from Udaipur, 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.

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

      Upon arrival, check into your hotel.

      Romance feels most at home in Udaipur. With its rolling hills, fairy tale palaces, age-old temples, havelis and quaint streets, this Venice of the East is sure to take your breath away.

    • Pahuna Haveli
  • Day 4
    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-colored 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 (Manek Chowk & 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 colorful and interesting souvenirs that you could take back.

      Later in the afternoon, we visit Saheliyon Ki Bari, the Garden of the Maids of Honor, designed as a peaceful retreat outside the old city of Udaipur. Built by Maharana Sangram Singh II for the 48 girls that he received as part of his dowry, 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 travelers.

    • The afternoon is at leisure for you to explore the city as you wish.
