Package's Detail:

Rajasthan is a legendary land defined by the patchwork of kingdoms and principalities that were, till independence, ruled by maharajas, rajas, ranas and rawals. If you listen carefully, the breath of the breeze brings you faint echoes of clashing armour, neighing of horses and above all, the spine-chilling trumpet of a charging elephant. So visiting Rajasthan is almost like travelling back in time – to an era that was gracious, graceful and romantic.

 

The magic of vibrant Rajasthan – its heritage, culture, safaris, sand dunes, lush forests and wildlife makes this tour unforgettable. The trip once again starts from Delhi and moves on to exploring the heritage of Pink City-Jaipur. Thereafter, it takes tourists to Mandwa and Bikaner-two small yet important towns of State that have some extremely unique places to visit like the Rat temple of Bikaner.

 

Thereafter it is difficult for the traveller to ascertain where time flies by because from Bikaner what starts as a journey to unwind in the beauty of sand dunes, keeps taking the traveller almost in the heart of the desert region with Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Pushkar.

 

From Pushkar the trip takes an obvious detour towards the seventh wonder of worldthe Taj Mahal, which is not a part of Rajasthan but is the most important destination of any Indian tour package.
