Highlights of Rajasthan & Shimla

Rajasthan, India

Rajasthan conjures up images of ceremonial elephants, polo playing and perhaps as many thoughts about the British Colonial era than anywhere else.

OVERVIEW TOUR

Rajasthan’s real charm lies in its much deeper history: pre-colonialisation, going back over centuries of Maharajas ruling different areas in harmony whilst fending off the Moghuls. This dynasty of kings has left palaces and forts strewn over almost every hilltop for thousands of square miles. With these amazing cathedrals of history, stunning scenery, culture, and wildlife to boot, Rajasthan really packs a punch in terms of unrivaled experience in a relatively short space of time. Whilst many may be familiar with east and central Rajasthan – for good reason – the western area is where it becomes increasingly interesting with smaller towns and cities.

The changing landscapes morph into desert near Jaiselmer and differing cultures, architecture and traditions emerge. From The Taj Mahal to Mehangarh Fort, this state offers a myriad of historical sites which we will guide you around with experienced English speaking guides. You could enhance the experience with our hand-picked selection of heritage hotels, old converted forts and amazing palaces.

These buildings have been lovingly built or restored and the older properties really make you know you are not only in India, but in Rajasthan too, with its regal history. As an added bonus, many of these palaces and forts are still owned and resided in by the original family, in one case, by the oldest recorded family in the world, according to the Guinness book of records. These places offer another level of experience with personal introductions to the family. In many cases the families can tell some fascinating stories about the buildings their forefathers built and lived in, as Maharajas of the respective areas. This turns a very interesting trip into a really fascinating one so travel with us to the land of Indian royalty, where many regal dynasties still survive today, and discover an area that will leave you yearning for more.
