Rajasthan & The North

Rajasthan and the North are so packed full of historical cities and beautiful monuments such as the Taj Mahal, Delhi and Jaipur that you could easily spend an entire trip just in this region.

Rural Rajasthan

Traditional Rajasthan itineraries move between the large cities, which are home to some of the state's most famous attractions, however there is much more too see in this vibrant state.

Spending time in the rural areas allows you to break your journey up and experience something completely different. Whether visiting a local school, watching traditional potters ply their trade or joining a farmer tending to the crops, in rural Rajasthan you can experience a way of life that has continued largely unchanged for centuries.

Our Rajasthan and the North highlights

Soak up the vivid colours of Rajasthan

Rajasthan is known as India's most colourful state and it's easy to understand why. The bright saris and jewellery of the women and colourful turbans of the men make the people stand out. The wonderful local markets, golden deserts and the blue washed houses of Jodhpur make for an unforgettable landscape.

Spot tigers in Ranthambhore National Park

Explore the adundant wildlife of Ranthambhore in an open-top jeep - a fantastic way to see spotted deer, monkeys, colourful birdlife and tiger. There is something truly magical about seeing this beautiful cat emerge from the undergrowth and patrol its territory in stunning, natural surroundings.

Relax in the rural idyll of Orchha

The many palaces and gardens of this sleepy 16th century town are easily explored on foot, and its serene location in ancient forest on the banks of the Betwa River make this an ideal place to spend a few days exploring or simply relaxing.

Experience the magic of sunrise at the Taj Mahal

Whilst the majestic domes and beautifully-carved columns of the Taj Mahal are magnificent at any time of the day, they are at their most breathtaking first thing in the morning as the sun rises and casts a magical soft pink light across its elegant facade.

See Delhi's architectural treasures

Delhi boasts many architectural gems, such as the Baha'i House of Worship and the India Habitat Centre, which combined with the Secretariat, Lutyen, make it one of the world's great architectural capitals.

Take an evening boat ride along the Ganges at Varanasi

A place of spiritual pilgrimage for thousands of years, Varanasi sits on the banks of the Ganges, India's holiest river. The best way to appreciate the flurry of activity and huge gatherings of people making offerings to the goddess Ganga, or Aarti, is from a sunset boat cruise along the river.
