Rajasthan

From the sand dunes of the Thar desert in the north to the rugged hills of the southeast, Rajasthan’s geography and scenery is as colorful and diverse as its history and culture. An ancient patchwork of kingdoms each with its own distinct character, the sheer number of iconic palace, forts and havelis Rajasthan has to offer makes the state one of the most fascinating in India.

It's the cultural heart of the country and the perfect place to begin any journey to the subcontinent. Major highlights include the capital, Jaipur, the hugely impressive Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur, the desert stronghold of Jaisalmer and the stunning lake city of Udaipur - each with its own distinctive atmosphere. Beyond the cities however lie the rural heartlands of the countryside, with local markets and a way of life that hasn’t changed in centuries. A complete destination in its own right, Rajasthan is a truly magical experience.
