Written By KV Singh
A memorable tour of discovery that begins in Jaipur and finishes at Varanasi . During these 11 days stay in magnificent boutique heritage hotels – I call non-hotels – forts,palaces,castles and havelis owned and operated by scions of former royal families traditionally gracious hosts.
While in Jaipur visit the majestic Fort Amer,ride up on an elephant and take a walking tour through its fresco & mirror rooms and courtyards.
Enjoy 3 rejuvenating ayurvedic massages and a gala dinner with bar-be-cue and unlimited drinks hosted by your tour operator and his wife from the noble family of Khandela. The evening will be enlivened with folk music & dances and a puppet show.
At Agra – your next destination – see the incredible Taj Mahal.
You visit next the lovely town of Orchha by the River Betwa. See its magnificent temples and palaces. Take a walking tour by the river.
Khajuraho will be your next destination. This town has the 11th century temples that have on them erotic carvings – the Kamsutra town. Here see a sound and light show. During your stay here take a jeep safari in the Panna Tiger national Park to see tigers at close quarters.
This tour also takes you to Chitrakoot – where Lord Ram spent a few years. See a memorable aarti being performed on the banks of a river.
Your last destination will be the 5000-year old Benares also called Varanasi most sacred to Hindus & Buddhists. Here take a pre-dawn cruise on sacred River Ganga,see a mesmerizing aarti on its banks in the evening.
Walk through the silk bazaars of the town. Take an excursion to Sarnath where Lord Buddha attained enlightenment.
