The State of Rajasthan is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful Region of India. Rajasthan's many princely states, impressive forts and magnificent palaces set in the Thar desert evoke uniquely colourful images of medieval India. Rajasthan means land of Rajas (or Kings) but also called Rajputana "the country of Rajputs" The Aravali mountain range, one of the oldest mountain ranges of the word, extending from north to south, divides the state into two natural regions. Aravali range and the Thar Desert are the two most contrasting features of Rajasthan's geographical make-up. Fairs and festivals of Rajasthan reflect the vigour and life style of its people. Vibrant colours, music and festivities make the golden sand come alive. Veiled, bejewelled women sing and dance to devotional rhythms. Rajasthan has a fair for every religious occasion, for every change of season and for every harvest. The Desert Triangle tour is specially more attractive during the desert festival taking place in the month of March every year. 


Day 01. Flight to
India (Delhi)
Around Midnight arrival in
Delhi. The cosmopolitan City and capital Delhi is the main gateway for travelers. You are met by an Indo Vacations representative and transferred to your Hotel.

Day 02. Old - New Delhi

This morning is at leisure. Afternoon sightseeing in Old Delhi. We take a Rickshaw Ride parallel to the
Red Fort through the old city and famous Silk Road and Silver Bazaar. Sightseeing of Old Delhi includes "Rajghat", the place where Mahatma Gandhi was cremated and Jama Masjid, the great mosque of old Delhi. Today we also visit the famous "Humayun Tomb" which is the first substantial example of Mughal architecture in India. Before we proceed to the Hotel we have a drive through New Delhi where we see the India Gate, Government Buildings, Embassies.

Day 03. Delhi - Shekhawati (about 270 km)

In the morning we visit "
Qutub Minar" which is 71 meter high and consists of five stories. In 1199 work began on this tower which was intended to be the most glorious tower of victory in the world. This tower was damaged twice and repaired in 1326 and 1368.After the sightseeing of Delhi we drive to Shekhawati region. Arrival in Shekhawati in the late evening.

Day 04. Shekhawati - Bikaner (about 190 km)
In the morning we visit the grand havellis of the Shekhawati area. Shekhawati is in the north east region of Rajasthan and is the homeland of marwaris. The marwaris form one of the most important merchant and business groups in India, they developed their business acumen on the trade routes between Delhi and the coast between India and Central Asia. Marwaris enjoyed protections by Maharajas and many of them built grand havellis. These havellis are mansions, elaborately and attractively decorated with a strong main entrance. The walls are often covered with murals, local legends and religious scenes from Hindu Mythology. After the visit of Shekhawati area we proceed to
Bikaner. We have the rest of the day at leisure and therefore enough time to relax.

Day 05. Bikaner

After the breakfast we visit the
Junagarh Fort (1571-1611 AD) constructed of red sandstone and marble with kiosks and balconies embellishing the structure at intervals. This imposing Fort and its palaces are an unforgettable experience for us.
After the sightseeing we enjoy the village Tour.

Day 06. Bikaner - Jaisalmer (about 330 km)
Today we drive through the desert and proceed for
Jaisalmer. Very often one can see along the road to Jaisalmer some of the antelopes of this region. Blackbuck and fast running Chinkara are the most common among them. We have a stop enroute at a village to observe the traditional life of the villages in Rajasthan. We arrive in Jaisalmer in the late evening.

Day 07. Jaisalmer
Sightseeing of the medieval city of Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer's crenellated golden sandstone walls and its narrow streets lined with exquisitely carved buildings makes this city unique. Jaisalmer is famous for its carved havellis (grand mansions). In medieval times, its prosperity was due to its location on the main trade route linking India to Egypt, Arabia, Africa and the West. Jaisalmer is a marvel of beautiful culture and this city remains one of the most exotic city not only in Rajasthan but in the whole of India. Some of the visitors called this city “a living museum”. We have a walk through the old city and visit the
Fort and the Jain temple. In the afternoon we drive around 40 km away from Jaisalmer to Sam dunes where we enjoy the sunset before we drive back to Jaisalmer.

Day 08. Jaisalmer - Jodhpur (about 290 km)

Jodhpur via Osian. Osian is a great centre of Hindu and Jain religions. The oldest Temple here was constructed in 1178 AD. The Jodhpur city was once the capital of the princely state of Marwar (Land of death). Jodhpur is the second largest city in Rajasthan. Jodhpur is also known as the blue city as most of the houses of the old city are painted blue. The old city is surrounded by a huge 10 km long wall which has 101 bastions and seven gates. Jodhpur lies on the once strategic Delhi-Gujarat trading route and the marwaris got benefit from the passing traffic of opium, copper, silk which was traded to China. We will visit the Mehrangarh Fort (majestic fort). Mehrangarh Fort was built on a steep hill and is among the best in India with exquisitely latticed windows in residential apartments within.
