Tigers, Dunes and Palaces
From 1003 $ per person
Rajasthan, which is a true introduction to India, makes you feel like you’re in the world of the 1001 nights. The secrets of the jungle, the immensity of the desert and the encounter with the proud Rajasthanis will seduce the children... as well as grown ups!
With its magnificent & luxurious Maharajas’ palaces, its superb fortresses, its elegant “havelis”, and its proud Rajput lords, Rajasthan is one of the most chivalrous regions. A mosaic of landscapes await you, from the mildness of the wooded and green Aravelli mountains to the intense arid region of the Thar, its dunes and small villages emerging from the desert.
It’s also an incredible world with its peaceful inhabitants- Rebaris and Bishnois shepherds wearing hugely coloured turbans and the Gadulliya gypsies : nomadic blacksmiths or musicians....
Thanks to private vehicles, we will have freedom to follow the roads, from the Taj Mahal to Jodhpur, via the pink city- Jaipur. Far from the crowd of the metro cities, you will be fascinated by the amazing landscapes: sunrise on the dry desert where acacias trees seem to dance, lanes paved in stone and mud houses embellished with the statues of Ganesh, which bring luck. You will be amazed by the people of the countryside - women going to the wells, wearing their bright coloured saris, peppers drying in the sun, village festivals and turbaned musicians, temples of mysterious gods...the list will never end.
