Diwali and the Taj Mahal


This very special trail ride and Sightseeing tour we offer just once a year - always at Diwali! Enjoy unforgettable memories that will last for a liftetime!

 

Our journey starts in Udaipur, where we visit the beautiful city, make some Sightseeing and a boat ride. In the evenings we will celebrate Diwali together. Diwali is one of the most-awaited religious festivals for Hindus in India, known as the festival of lights. After visiting Udaipur we drive to the Jodhpur area, where we visit the Meherangarh Fort. On the next day we start our 7 day Trail Ride consisting of 3 nights in typical Indian Havelis and 4 nights in our camp, where we stay in comfortable tents. We enjoy our ride in the beautiful landscape, riding through small villages and watching the diverse wildlife. The tracks are long and sandy, made for some good canters up the sand dunes to gain spectacular views.  On our way we will stop in Osian to see the Jain Temple. The tour is a unique chance to get in very close contact with the people and the culture. The average riding distance is 25 km - 30 km per day with 4-6 hours in the saddle per day with a break for picnic lunch. Our ride is accompanied by our Jeeps, so Non-Riders can also join the Group and enjoy this awesome experience. Our ride ends in Jodhpur, from where we travel to Jaipur, making again some Sightseeing and getting the chance to play some Stick and Ball on well trained Polo horses. At the end of our tour we travel to Agra to visit the Red Fort and the famous Taj Mahal - one of the most beautiful buildings in the world! Our unique journey ends in Delhi.
