Deserts, camels, rock forts, mountain-rimmed lakes lined with temples and glimmering white palaces, brilliant fabrics, gorgeous turbans and clothing, vibrant folk dance and music.

Rajasthan is perhaps the most exotic and colourful state in India, a region of surprising contrasts. Peacocks strut through mud-hut villages. In an arid landscape, lakes are nesting grounds for unimaginable numbers of migratory birds and other wildlife. Medieval walled cities rise like shimmering mirages from sand dunes. Seemingly a poor land, Rajasthan has always been wealthy in adventurous traders and innovative entrepreneurs, who have poured their riches into ornate temples and fine houses. Sculptors, painters, jewellers and musicians have thrived. Though this land of rajas (kings) never produced an imperial dynasty, it was the thorn in the side of every North Indian Empire, and its vaunted warrior traditions are dramatically revealed in the massive fortresses that dominate hill ridges. Surrounded by Muslim states, Rajasthan remained a bastion of Hinduism, but its monumental architecture, arts, crafts and cuisine are an intriguing blend of both cultures.

Rajasthan delights the traveller with its colour and visual drama, and it excites us with the verve, joy and laughter of its people. Our tour will give us the experience of daily life in cities and villages. We will also enjoy quiet wildlife interludes at nature sanctuaries.
