Rajasthan
Journey through the majestic Lands

This journey begins in the pages of history, with the must-see majestic forts, the haunting images of camels making their way through the desert, the magnificent havelis, the private hunting grounds of the nobles (now converted to National Parks), the friendliness of the people and fascinating handicrafts all combined to give you a unique experience of the culture, colours, richness and rawness of this majestic land.
