Seamless travel, every detail perfected.

Some people do not like to go on the regular roads. They crave for off-the-beaten-track. This trip covers the rustic side of Rajasthan along with the famous Golden Triangle (Delhi-Agra-Jaipur), and Talabgaon. The trip kicks off with the crowded cities but gradually ebbs away to the rustic rural sites.

In the heart of the Shekhawati region of Rajasthan lies the beautiful small quaint town of Mandawa, known throughout the state for its forts and havelis (mansions). The entire Shekhawati region is dotted with havelis displaying beautiful frescos over the walls, which has given Mandawa the nickname "an open art gallery". The set-up of this place reminds you of the cultural and social hotspot this place used to be in the bygone era.

This itinerary introduces you to three different aspects of India – Urban, Rural & Wildlife. From the streets of Delhi, to Taj Mahal in Agra, to the vivid pink-colored houses in Jaipur, to the artistic laid-back town of Mandawa, this tour is meant to experience the quintessential India.
