Colours of Rajasthan, North India

16 days from £3,490 per person

* Visit in November to experience the Pushkar Camel and Cattle Fair (4th-12th November 2019) - one of India's most vibrant festivals where thousands of Rajasthani villagers congregate to trade and race up to 50,000 camels, horses and donkeys. The fair also comes alive with Rajasthani music and traditional dancers dressed in colourful regional costumes *

This tour of Delhi, Agra & Rajasthan has been put together to represent the kaleidoscopic colours that can be witnessed whilst travelling through the princely state. Start by exploring the capital, Delhi, and its stark juxtaposition from the bustling Chandni Chowk of Old Delhi to the tree-lined avenues around Connaught Place of New Delhi. From here travel to Agra, home of the impressive Taj Mahal. Continue into Rajasthan where the colours begin to jump out from all directions, from the ladies vibrant saris to the cities buildings. Take in the 'pink city' of Jaipur before driving into the countryside to visit the holy town of Pushkar.

Next, drive west to Mihir Garh, a fabulous boutique hotel resembling a Rajasthani fort floating in the middle of the desert, before journeying further west into the Thar Desert to visit Jaisalmer. Return to the 'blue city' of Jodhpur and stroll around the bazaars with their spices, tie-dye fabrics and puppets, and visit the Meherangarh Fort. End the trip in the romantic city of Udaipur and take a boat ride on the shimmering Lake Picchola.

This is purely a suggested itinerary, it can be booked as it is or used as a starting point for creating your own luxury tailor-made tour of India. If you'd like to see similar holidays, take a look at our favourite Epic JourneysHoneymoons and Family Holidays; as well as our Festival & Events collection.
