This is a long itinerary and we can alter it to fit in with the time you have in India.
We understand there are so many amazing destinations in the world, and that India might be a once-only trip. It is a huge country with so many amazingly diverse highlights, and if you have time on your hands you can see a little more. This is obviously just a suggested outline, and we can adapt your itinerary to your particular interests. The route takes you from Delhi out to Varanasi before flying down to see the interesting Chandela Temples of Khajuraho. Pass through the sleepy town of Orchha and onto Agra (you might want to stop at Gwalior too). See Agra and the Taj Mahal, before dipping down to Ranthambore National Park for a spot of wildlife and to hopefully see tigers in the wild. Next, work back up to Jaipur to see the capital of Rajasthan, packed with forts and palaces and interesting bazaars. We feel getting the blend right between town and country is important on a Rajasthan holiday, so spend a night in Nimaj as the beautiful Chattra Sagar overlooking a lake. Continue to Jodhpur, known as the ‘Blue City’, another wonderful Rajasthani city to visit. Drive south, through villages known for Bishnoi tribes and down to Jawai, set in a stunning location in the Aravalli Hills. For wildlife lovers, the are is superb for spotting leopard and for those who like culture, the villages are very much quintessential rural Rajasthan. You then arrive at your final Rajasthani city, and the most picturesque, Udaipur. Finally, end your time in Mumbai (which was Bombay) before returning home.
