Adventures in Rural Rajasthan (17 days)

This adventurous itinerary offers something for India experts and newcomers alike. The tour largely avoids the main highlights of Delhi and Rajasthan, focusing instead on adventurous, off-the-beaten-path exploration through this most dramatic corner of India. After two nights exploring lesser seen Old Delhi, the tour moves you swiftly into the remote Shehkawati region of northern Rajasthan, where one finds an ‘open air art gallery’ of glamorously painted havelis. Hit the road for an overnight stay within the complex of the magnificent Ahichhatragarh Fort. You then head to the beautiful honeycomb city of Jaisalmer before continuing for an overnight stay in the Thar Desert, embracing the inner Lawrence of Arabia with an evening camel ride. A short drive then brings you to Jodhpur to visit the mighty Mehrangarh Fort before continuing to Chandelao, ideal for exploring rural areas around Jodhpur.  A night at the dramatic hilltop citadel of Kumbhalgarh precedes a pleasant trek through the Aravalli hills, before another two-night stay in the picturesque town of Deogarh. Round off with two nights at the Samode Haveli: an oasis of calm in the heart of frantic Jaipur. There is a real mix of accommodation and environments here, plus several different modes of exploration: an intrepid, and potentially unforgettable journey awaits.
