representative and given assistance for transfer to the hotel. Rest of the
day free for independent activities. Overnight in Delhi. Delhi is just not
a city but it is a book-- a book which narrates the history of India. The
city was built and destroyed seven times and has been witness to the various
events which has brought India through the history books. Seven times this
city went through the pain of being built and rebuilt. Today as the capital
of India Delhi is the seat of administration and the monuments which tell
the saga of a bygone era stand there. These icons are testimony to the grandeur
of past and also an attraction for the tourists. With an area of 1483 sq.
Kms, Delhi is all set to acquire full statehood. The charm of Delhi has attracted
Emperors, Conquerors and poor in equally. It is correctly said that Delhi
is a land of 'Dilwalas' or for people with heart. This phrase acquires a true
colour when one goes around the lanes of Delhi.

and transferred to the Hotel. We start with the most romantic sight seeing
in a boat on Lake Pichhola with the most beautiful palaces all around and

The Lake City as it is popularly known. For the whole day we explore this
picturesque town, its amazing palaces, gardens and fountains.
The city of Lakes, Located in the Aravalli ranges of Rajasthan,
the city of Udaipur is situated at a distance of about 405 km from the state
capital Jaipur. The City of Dawn, surrounded by the ancient Aravali Mountains
and set on the edge of three lakes, is a brilliant kaleidoscope of narrow
lanes flanked by bright stalls, gardens, lakes, palaces and temples. The city
is famous for its palaces, lake, museums, temples, and gardens and much more.
Day 04: Chittorgarh
The epitome of Rajput Chivalry. Transferred to Chittorgarh and checking in,
we drive upto what is known as the most fiercely fought fort of India- the
Chittorgarh Fort which had witnessed the bloodiest of battles, chivalry, Jouhars
( mass self-immolations ) and sacrifices. Each stone of this fort has its
own story to narrate.
The pride and glory of Rajasthan. Chittaur echoes with
the tales of romance and valour unique to the Rajput tradition. A ruined citadel,
where the royal past lives in its imposing forts, graceful palaces and spectacular
'chhatris'. This fortified settlement has been ravaged thrice and each time
the outcome was 'Jauhar' - when women and children immolated themselves on
a huge funeral pyre while men donned in saffron robes of martyrdom rode out
of the fort towards a certain death.
Day 05: Kumbhalgarh

before reaching the huge & impregnable fort of Kumbhalgarh. We also enjoy

The Verdant Oasis. The only hill station in Rajasthan, Mount Abu huddles among
the rocks on a 1,220-m granite table mountain at the far southwestern end
of the Aravalli hills. It is built around a lake and is surrounded by forested
hills. According to a legend, the place derives its name from Arbuda, a serpent
who descended to the spot to rescue Shiva's bull, Nandi. Besides having all
the features of a pleasant hill resort,
Mount Abu is also well known for the famous Dilwara temples and many more
archaeological remains. There are interesting treks and picnic spots, romantic
royal retreats of the various erstwhile families of bygone Rajputana and some
relics of the Raj period. The scenic landscapes include gigantic blocks of
rocks in weird shapes, an array of coniferous trees, flowering shrubs, lovely
lakes and the cool climate much in contrast to the arid environs of the state.
