DAY 02 DELHI TO JAISALMER

Perhaps there is no other capital city in the world so steeped in history and legend as the Indian capital, Delhi. It was the magnet that drew the Mongols, Turks, Persians, Afghans, Mughals and Finally the British. All of whom contributed to its glorious but turbulent history. The fascination with Delhi was such that even though it was abandoned many times, its rulers returned to it again and again rebuilding it at least seven times.

Afternoon drive to Old Delhi Tour (half day) : Shah Jahan founded the city of Shahjanabad, now referred to as Old Delhi, in 1648. The famous Red Fort in the heart of Old Delhi was once the most opulent fort of the Mughal Empire and it boasts the Diwan-I-Am, Hall of Private Audience. Opposite the fort is the Jama Masjid, one of the largest mosques in the world, built by Shah Jahan to dominate his city. Sightseeing to Red Fort, Jama Masjid Mosque & Humayuns tomb.

DAY 04 JAISALMER
Morning after breakfast sightseeing in Jaisalmer, a medieval city of elaborately carved mansions (havelis) in yellow sandstone, built by rich merchants at a time when the city was a key stopping place on the caravan routes from the Middle East. Visit to Jaislamer Fort, often referred as the golden fort because of the colour of the sandstone, Jaisalmer's Fort seems to emerge from the desert sands. The fort is still home to many of the town's people who live in tiny but beautifully decorated houses or havelis. Jaisalmer has been described as an open-air museum, and to enter its narrow cobbled lanes is to step into a bygone age. Rest of the day free to relax. O/n Hotel.

DAY 05 JAISALMER TO JODHPUR
After an early breakfast drive to historic Jodhpur second city of Rajasthan. Check into the hotel. Evening visit the Old City surrounded by a huge 9 ½-km long wall which has 101 bastions and seven gates. It comprises a labyrinthine maze of narrow streets. Some of the houses and temples are of richly carved stone, in particular red sandstone buildings of the Sire (Sardar) Bazar. O/n Hotel.

DAY 06 JODHPUR TO RANAKPUR
Morning after breakfast drive to visit the massive Mehrangarh Fort looms over the city and the Red sandstone Palaces within the fort form one of the most impressive complexes in Rajasthan. Its museum contains sections which house armoury, palanquins, howdahs and headgear from all the communities of Rajasthan. Proceed to Ranakpur (about 180kms/04hrs), check into the hotel. If time allows, on arrival at Ranakpur we can visit the stunning nearby Jain temples.

DAY 07 RANAKPUR TO AODHI (06hrs walking)
From Ranakpur our trail takes us through the Arravalis, nature is surprisingly different in this part of Rajasthan, with rocky hills and plentiful greenery. In the narrow fertile valleys sugarcane and other staple-foods are cultivated. We will see Persian wheels being used for irrigation.

DAY 08 AODHI TO BAGHA-KA-BAGH (04hrs walking)
After breakfast we set our firstly to visit the Kumbalgarh Fort, situated at 1100 M on a nearby hilltop. The fort has a lot of temples, palaces and gardens, though you can't compare it to the exquisitely decorated palaces of Jodhpur or Udaipur, it is though impressive for its location and the splendid views it commands. After visiting the fort we descend into the deep valley behind the fort, this is where the former hunting area of the Maharaja of Ghanerao starts, a small exkingdom north of Kumbalgarh. Now it has been converted into a wild park under the control of the forest department of India. After 4 hours of walking we reach the Maharaja's hunting lodge, which is our home for the night. Here there is no electricity and only a minimum of comfort but the sounds of the jungle, and the campfire make it an unforgettable experience. O/n Hotel.

Jagdish Temple in UdaipurDAY 10 GHANERAO TO UDAIPUR
We start our day with a short drive (about 80kms/02hrs) through the beautiful Aravali hills to the romantic lake city of Udaipur. Set on the shores of Lake Pichola and surrounded by hills, Udaipur grew in complete contrast to the harsh deserts of the rest of Rajasthan. As capital of the old Mewar state it was the only Rajput stronghold to uphold its Hindu allegiance in the face of Muslim invasion. From the late 16th century, peace brought about an era of renaissance in the arts and encouraged the building of beautiful palaces around the lake, culminating, in the City Palace, one of the largest palace complexes in the world. The lake itself is a romantic setting surrounding the gleaming white Lake Palace and the Jag Mandir, a refugee of the rebel Mughal prince, Shah Jahan, soon to be the creator of the imcomparable Taj Mahal. We arrive at our delightful heritage hotel, and have plenty of time to relax in the garden. Our afternoon is free to visit the local bazaar or go boating on Lake Pichola. O/n Hotel.
