Our ‘Essential Rajasthan with the Taj’ itinerary idea takes in all the must see sites of India’s Golden Triangle and beyond, such as Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. You’ll also experience a change of pace and a glimpse at an older, more rural Rajasthan with its impossibly romantic desert forts, dramatic scenery and wildlife.
We’ve suggested mixing opulent city hotels, perfect for escaping the clamour outside, with peacefully charming but quirky heritage properties in converted Rajput residences, used for entertaining visitors from time immemorial.
- Marvelling at the timeless magnificence of the Taj Mahal, the disorderliness of Delhi and colourful Jaipur.
- Escaping to the gorgeous surrounds of Fort Barli.
- Learning about the Bishnoi people in Rohet and their relationship with local wildlife, including the very rare Blackbuck Antelope.
- Staying on the banks of Lake Pichola in romantic and laid back Udaipur.
For those with more time, we’d suggest slowing it down and spending a few more days exploring the countryside or relaxing in or just outside of Udaipur at the end of your holiday. The city hotels included are just suggestions and can be adjusted according to your preferences, travel style and budget. The hotels in rural areas are generally destinations in their own right where there are fewer alternatives.
As with all of our suggested itineraries, we can tailor-make your holiday to suit your budget, style and expectations. Find out how it works with our exclusive ‘Journey Planner’ here.
