Delhi to Mumbai Summary

Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Delhi

It's big, it's bold, it's busy - and there is nowhere in the world quite like it. Delhi's sights and sounds are sure to engage and intrigue.

Day 2 Bikaner

Located in the Thar desert, Bikaner is known for its camel farm, great food, rustic charm and extraordinary palaces, fort and temples.

Days 3-5 Jaisalmer/Camel Safari

Located within the Thar Desert, Jaisalmer is like an ancient oasis with its heritage architecture, medieval temples and crumbling, yet majestic, fort. Journey into the desert of Jaisalmer on camels, watching the sun set over the dunes and enjoying a campfire evening before sleeping under the stars. Like a city risen from the desert sands, Jaisalmer's sand-coloured buildings, busting bazaars and fascinating living fort all help give the city a wonderful old-world feel.

Days 6-7 Jodhpur

India's enigmatic 'Blue City', Jodhpur, has a captivating Old Town with palaces, heritage buildings, colourful streets and the Mehrangarh Fort shining like a jewel high above the city.

Day 8 Pushkar

With an ethereal lake in its centre and dusty desert hills in the background, Pushkar is resplendent in its natural beauty, spiritual heritage and architectural loveliness.

Days 9-10 Udaipur

With dusty hills in the background and tranquil lakes its centrepiece, Udaipur is a truly beautiful city with fabulous heritage buildings, restaurants and narrow laneways.

Day 11 Ratlam

Once a well-known trading town, Ratlam is now known for its gold and silver shops, and its khoa (like ricotta cheese).

Day 12 Mandu

Founded in the 6th century, Mandu was an important military outpost for many centuries and is now the site of some remarkable and well-preserved ruins.

Days 13-14 Ajanta/Ellora

Thirty spectacular cave monuments, decorated in Buddhist paintings and sculptures and dating from the 2nd century BC to the 5th century AD, can be found in Ajanta. Between the 5th and 10th century AD, Hindu, Buddhist and Jain temples, monasteries and chapels were intricately carved into the hills around Ellora - the result is breathtaking.

Days 15-16 Mumbai

A city of contradictions and never dull, Mumbai has truly wonderful sights vs the hard to see; incredible cultural depth vs rampant consumerism; immense riches vs crippling poverty.
