(a) Transfer from Delhi airport to a hotel to rest and recoup and a full or half day sight seeing depending on arrivals. (For those that have visited Delhi earlier the halt at Delhi can be minimized). From Delhi take afternoon/evening train to Chittaur/Udaipur.

(b) Day one starts early at Chittaurgarh/Udaipur where we get familiar with the mo-bikes. Whether it is Udaipur or Chittaurgarh depends on the train schedules of that moment. Either way the Chittaurgarh – Udaipur region of the Mewar gets three and a half days to drive and sight-see these cities/forts and many of India’s best lakes and to absorb the collated cultural essence of the Mewar. On the fourth afternoon we head for Kumbalgarh Fort and its magnificent location in the Aravalli range. Driving down to the Ranakpur temples we then drive further to Ghanerao (a late lunch) and Kotdi where we catch the handicraft weavers before nightfall. (Total 6 nights including the train).

(c) The fort of Jodhpur beckons and after a sweet night halt there we are away on the long road to Jaisalmer and its sunset on a dune. A night and a day around Jaisalmer and the long dash to Bikaner follows next morning. Bikaner gets a half-day and a night and we then pass on to the Shekawati belt, spending a night amidst the old havelis of that region. The rising sun splashes its golden rays on our faces as we head for Jaipur where we halt for a night and the next day set sights for Delhi to catch the flight home that night. (Total 6 nights). Additional night at Delhi if requested.
