Jewels of the desert

While it may be set against a desert, a trip to Rajasthan will be anything but dry. A safari through Ranthambore National Park will let you explore its nature and wildlife. While the evening safari will show you the same jungle in a whole new light. Hop over to the pink city of Jaipur. Amble through the Amber fort and then swagger around atop an elephant. In the evening experience the vibrant Jaipur city, which includes trips to the city palace, JantarMantar and Hawamahal. You move across the colour palette to the blue city of Jodhpur. Stroll around the Mehrangarh Fort, bargain at the Sadar bazaar and when the Clock Tower says that it’s past noon, drive to the princely city of Udaipur. The Rankpurjain temples en route make for a scenic break of journey. Take a boat ride across Lake Pichola, wander through the palace studded city or see it through the eyes of a cyclist!
