Celebrate Diwali in Rajasthan

Nov 04-17, 2020

14 days | India | Classic Explorations

Our travellers agree; Rajasthan is one of the greatest shows on earth! It’s the place to imbibe the glorious history, the glamour, and the grandeur of India. This trip is a colourful introduction to some of the most compelling sights of Rajasthan. Begin with a good look at dynamic Delhi then fly to Jodhpur, a jumble of blue cubism over which presides the imposing Mehrangarh Fort.

The rest of our journey is overland to take in the incredible scenery of golden desert and yellow fields of mustard, marvel at the delirious traffic of painted trucks and wandering cows, stopping frequently in colourful rural villages. A highlight of our trip is the two days we spend in Jaisalmer; the grand fort rises from the desert, a vision of turrets, towers, and battlements. Within the walls, discover a labyrinth of alleyways and courtyards, temples, and merchant houses. Explore another grand fort at Bikaner, then delve into the recently discovered wonders of the remote Shekhawati region. These extraordinary residences are painted inside and out with lively scenes from folklore and everyday life.

Celebrate Diwali with our Jaipur friends, dressing up in our best outfits, lighting lamps, and participating in family prayers to Lakshmi, goddess of fortune and prosperity. And what better place to conclude than with the Taj Mahal, an iconic site that will take your breath away?

Looking for a great introduction to India? Join us for this insider experience of Rajasthan’s most compelling sights at a festive time of year.
