The Path to West Rajasthan uncovers a unique experience of Rajasthan; while many choose to visit the popular sites of the “Golden Triangle”, the extraordinary experiences of the countryside are unfortunately overlooked.
While most itineraries conventionally begin at Delhi, The Path to West Rajasthan commences at the fascinating city of Mumbai. After learning its history, the journey continues on a flight to the bustle of Jodhpur, a favourite of ours, and then a drive west into the desert to Jaisalmer, a former caravanserai of the Silk Route, where a walk through its narrow streets uncovers the marvel of intricately carved Jain temples and private havelis that deck out this ancient fortress city. On our return to Jodhpur, a visit to the imposing Meharangarh Fort is a must-do, as well as a walk through the streets of The Blue City to get acquainted with the local way of life.
At Jawai Banh, the Path includes a terrific oppurtunity to see leopards in their natural habitat with a stay at Sujan Jawai Leopard Camp. With some of the best guides, leopard sightings are almost a surety. After the experience of wildlife, the journey continues to the lake city of Udaipur to visit to the City Palace. Albeit a little touristy, Udaipur is indeed an intresting city; but we much prefer to stay an hour out of Udaipur at a palace fortress overlooking the Aravalli Hills in the village of Delwara.
