Lights and colours of Rajasthan -

 15 Days / 14 Nights 

Delhi – Agra – Fatehpur Sikri – Jaipur - Mandawa – Bikaner – Jaisalmer – Jodhpur
Mandore – Ranakpur – Khumbalgarh - Udaipur

A journey that offers many of the essential aspects of Rajasthan: the magnificent painted residences of Shekhawati, the pink city of Jaipur, and the blue one of Jodhpur, the charm of Jaisalmer fort, the almost unreal peace of Bishnoi villages, the chisel of the Jain temple in Ranakpur and the majesty of the Khumbalgarh’s fortress. To these locations are added two gems of the neighboring UttarPradesh as the Taj Mahal in Agra, universally known as "the jewel of Muslim art in India" and the magical atmosphere of the Mughal city of Fathepur Sikri.
