Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Rajasthan is known as the desert state. It is largely hot and dry throughout the year, making it a great destination to get away from European winters.

Summer in Rajasthan extends from April to June. It is s the hottest season, with temperatures ranging from 32 degree C to 45 degree C, so not ideal for travel, although early April is a good time to get cheaper rates if you dont mind the temperature in the high 30s. In western Rajasthan the temperature may reach at high as 45 degree C, particularly in May and June so we'd suggest avoiding Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert at this time.

The second season - technically the "Monsoon" (although in reality Rajasthan never receives much rainfall) extends from July to September. The temperature drops slightly, and humidity increases. 90% of the rain Rajasthan can expect occurs during this period. Lakes and rivers will be higher from mountain run-off and flowers and grasses come to life, bringing added colour to the landscape.

The Post-monsoon period is from October to November. The average maximum temperature is 33 degree C to 38 degree C, and the minimum is between 18 degree C and 20 degree C. The official "season" for hotels in Rajasthan starts in October. It’s a great time to travel - warm and sunny during and perfect for exploring and relaxing.

The fourth season is "winter", and runs from December to March. With day time temperatures still in the high 20's during the day this a very popular time to travel. Hotels are at the their busiest over the Christmas and new year period. Be aware though that December and January can have very cool mornings and evening and we suggest taking some warm clothing. Whilst temperatures in the desert areas are always hot in the daytime, they become some of the coolest areas of the state once the sun goes down. It’s also fairly standard to expect some fog in the major cities of Northern Rajasthan and Delhi in December and January.

Itinerary

India simply has it all - from battle-scarred forts, elusive tigers roaming wild forests, colourful rural villages unchanged by time and cities buzzing with modern life. This itinerary provides a luxurious taster into this fantastic destination whilst staying at some of the most stylish properties in the region and using the very best private drivers and guides to bring the itinerary to life.

  1. Days 1-3: Delhi

    Begin in Delhi, a city that is ever-changing and reflecting India’s staggering growth as a major world economy. It is also a city that has seen countless stories about colourful Mughal rulers leaving behind buildings of exquisite beauty. Explore New Delhi, the city the British erected to perpetuate their control of the subcontinent and leaving behind the government buildings which are still used today. At night, escape the hotel and explore the many amazing restaurants which are cropping up. We suggest staying at the Imperial, the ‘grand dame’ of Delhi and naturally the place to have tea on the lawn.

    Accommodation: The Imperial (2 nights)

  2. Days 3-4: Agra

    After two nights in Delhi you will take a two hour train to Agra, home to the Taj Mahal which you will be able to see from your hotel, the renowned Oberoi Amarvilas. We have also included in the itinerary a short village experience on the other side of the Taj to see a little of Agra away from the tourists.

    Accommodation: The Oberoi Amarvilas (1 night)

  3. Days 4-7: Ranthambore National Park

    After one night in Agra, the next leg of your journey will take you to Ranthambore National Park by train. You will arrive into Sawai Madohphur and be transferred on to the colonial inspired Suján Sher Bagh. Ranthambore is possibly the most picturesque of India’s wildlife parks as it surrounds a medieval fort at its centre. Home to many tigers, leopards, sloth bear, deer and countless others, it provides you with the most logistically convenient tiger safari on offer in India.

    Accommodation: Suján Sher Bagh (3 nights)

  4. Days 7-10: Alwar, India

    Next, drive three hours to Amanbagh for your rural experience, and one of Scott Dunn's favourite spots in India. The hotel itself is a luxury retreat far away from the madding crowd, with the vibrancy of India’s rural heartlands on your door-step and you’ll have three nights here being totally pampered.By day explore the villages and remote temples where you will often be the only tourists and by night retreat to Amanbagh for a hint of luxury.

    Accommodation: Amanbagh (3 nights)

  5. Days 10-12: Jaipur

    Finally, drive two hours to Jaipur which is the capital of Rajasthan, and is awash with mesmerising sights and sounds. From the City Palace, Amber Fort or Hawa Mahal you will see jaw-dropping attractions, yet we find walking through the artisan areas of Jaipur brings the city to life. Stay at Suján Rajmahal Palace, the best address in town for the perfect finale to your introduction to India.

    We can of course select from a range of hotels, whether you like the more boutique, heritage style hotels, the more opulent palace hotels or the luxury Oberoi hotels. We will ensure your experience in India is absolutely second to none.

    Accommodation: Rajmahal Palace (2 nights)
