ARRIVAL AT DELHI

BEFORE WE START WE WISH TO EMPHASIZE THAT THE DETAILS OF SITES OR PLACES IN OUR TOURS DO NOT REMAIN RESTRICTED OR CONCLUSIVE. ON THE CONTRARY WE MEET MUCH MORE IN OUR WAY TO OUR DESTINATIONS.

We welcome you at the Indira Gandhi International Airport and escort you to the selected hotel for an overnight stay. 

DELHI

Good Morning, Delhi !
We are prepared to see the historical Red Fort and Jama Masjid. The capital of India is an obvious book of history and sizzling modern living. Take your first steps into the narrow alleys of Old Delhi; observe the magnificent urbanism and architecture of New Delhi; and conclude with some of the happening areas, where you could try the best of Indian food and feel the heartbeat of this peculiar megacity. 

Delhi to Amritsar (By Train): In the evening, we  get the train to the holy city of Amritsar. Overnight stay at hotel.

AMRITSAR

Good Morning, Amritsar and the entire Punjab !  
Amritsar is the home to the historical Golden Temple (one of the five highest seats of the Sikhs), Durgiana Temple (similar architecture to that of the Golden Temple), and Ram Bagh Gardens (Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s residence for summer), Jallianwala Bagh (a historical spot of one of the most infamous massacres in the India’s War of Freedom) and the Wagha Border between India & Pakistan – famous for its daily ceremony. And obviously, all these sites will be visited during the course of the day.
Overnight stay at hotel.

AMRITSAR TO BIKANER

Good Morning, India !
After breakfast, we start our drive to Bikaner with lunch en route. This is a long journey that takes us to the deserted region of Thar, along the border with Pakistan. In the evening, we reach Bikaner.
Overnight stay at hotel

BIKANER

The tour to Bikaner will take us to the wonderful Junagarh Fort, Deshnoke Temple (the Karni Mata Mandir) and a Camel Breeding / Research Farm. The Karni Mata Mandir has been unique with its bizarre pattern of worshipping mice / rats.
Overnight stay at hotel.

BIKANER TO JAISALMER

We will start the day driving to Jaisalmer – The Citadel City. 
Jaisalmer is a former medieval trading center in the heart of the Thar Desert. Known as the "Golden City," it's distinguished by its yellow sandstone architecture.  This is a city worth watching and enjoying in a relaxed mood & walk. The social environment of the city will make us feel in the times of camel caravans.
Overnight at hotel.

JAISALMER

Good Morning, Jaisalmer !
Our city tour will cover Jaisalmer Fort (Sonar Quila, the Golden Fort), built on the highest point of the Trikuta Hill, the Sun Gate. Outstanding features of the citadel are Megh Durbar and its various temples. Out of the walls we find the Salim Singh-Ki-Haveli & Patwon–Ki-Haveli, some of the most beautiful grand mansions with stone carving and lattice work of breathtaking intricacy and the Lodurva / Lodhurva village with masterpieces of architectural grandeur. In the evening we visit Khuri sand dunes. The ripples on the wind caressed dunes create enchanting mirages. Adventure freaks can go out on a camel safari getting the real feel of the desert on the camel back.
Overnight stay at hotel.

JAISALMER TO JODHPUR

After Breakfast we drive to Jodhpur, the Blue City. Distinguished unique by the Mehrangarh fort, unsurpassed in beauty & grandeur, there is no exaggeration in Rudyard Kipling describing the fort as “A Palace that might have been built by Titans and colored by the morning sun”. Jodhpur is famous for the blue color of many of its houses. The Fort, one of the biggest in India has innumerable palaces, interspersed with sprawling courtyards, and is intricately carved. Jaswant Thada / Jaswanthada, the 19th century royal cenotaph, a creation in white marble, and the Clock Tower are other spots that remain worth a visit.
Overnight stay at hotel.

JODHPUR TO UDAIPUR

The way to Udaipur will take us to cross the Aravalli Range of mountains. Beautiful landscapes and a jewel of the Jain heritage: Ranakpur Temple.

Only those who stay in the City Palace can visit the Lake Palace, which had been the setting for the legendary movie of James Bond's Octopussy. We may visit famous Jagdish Temple, dedicated to Vishnu, or the Saheliyon ki Baori, the Garden of the Maidens of Honor, with its lotuses and roses.

UDAIPUR TO PUSHKAR

Good Morning, the World of Brahma !
Today, we drive to Pushkar, the holy city of Brahma. The legend tells that Brahma complained to the gods, since he was the only god who did not have a holy city. Then the gods threw a flower to decide what place on the Earth should be devoted to Brahma, and if fell on Pushkar.

JAIPUR

Day for sightseeing the Pink City, capital of Rajasthan. Sightseeing Jaipur remains fascinating with the people around and their lifestyle.

This is one river in India where millions of millions of people perform their puja / religious / family rites every day almost 24 X 7. Bathing in the Ganges has been considered purifying souls, day or night.
Haridwar is one of the four pilgrimage places of the magnificent, mysterious Kumbh Mela over the period of 12 years, i.e., every four years the pilgrimage place is changed among the four definite pilgrimage places. 
Meals in Haridwar remain varied, but of course, mainly vegetarian with many sweet dishes.

HARIDWAR TO RISHIKESH: In the evening we start for Rishikesh. We somehow keep ourselves free to move around. Overnight stay at hotel. 

RISHIKESH

Good Morning, Rishikesh !
This is a center for yoga & meditation and temples & ashrams are meant for the purpose. The Beatles stayed here for a yoga training in February 1968 and made it famous for foreigners, but Rishikesh has been a pilgrimage and spiritual retirement for centuries. You will see dozens of ashrams where you can practice the meditation and the different branches of yoga. An experience of being in the lap of Mother Nature.Evening means the Aarti at the Ganges (fire worship) and must not be missed.
