You will know you have reached Jaipur, the first stop of the train, when the unmistakable pink begins to trickle over you and the sandstone structures around. Well planned and symmetrical, it is steeped deep in the cultural history of Rajasthan and was founded in the 18th century by Maharaja Jai Singh.

A fully air-conditioned luxury coach is set to take you for your city exploration. It begins at the fabled Hawa Mahal (Palace of Winds), where you will marvel at the technical as well as practical knowledge of the architects’ centuries before. Post lunch at a five star hotel, an elephant ride up to the Amber Fort and visits to the Observatory and Palace Museum complete your Jaipur adventure.
Day 3 - Friday - Sawai Madhopur-Chittaurgarh
Arrive By : 05:30 Hrs
Depart At : 10:30 hrs

Sawai Madhopur renowned for its Ranthambore National park defines an elegant wilderness. Tagged along with the dense woods where tigers sprawl majestically and reign freely are unparalleled safari opportunities. If you are lucky these curious creatures might come out of the copses to have a better look at the intruders too. Palace on Wheels set aside a great deal of time to explore this reserve so that you can appreciate its vastness along with its numerous forts and temples that belong to bygone years.

Sawai Madhopur is also known for its exclusive craftworks, toys, indigenous ornaments and ethnic outfits. Upon return to the Palace on Wheels, you set out for the multi-hued Chittorgarh, when one gets a chance to catch sight of the lovely countryside passing by.

Chittaurgarh

Arrive By : 16:00 Hrs
Depart At : 02:00 Hrs (post midnight)

Chittorgarh left across the pages of history presents rather a different portrait of Rajasthan and its Rajputs. Prolonged attacks and sieges did nothing to dampen the spirit of these people who would rather die than give up their honour or in other words accept defeat. And this is where women commit jauhar.

The Chittor Hill Fort remains as a mark of these historic moments. A camel ride ascending the hill along the tortuous routes towards the fort is just the right way to enrich yourself with this remarkable history lesson with stupendous views around. A series of pristine water bodies, superbe forts and havelis, and innumerable temples add the final touch. And it is dinner time back in the train.
Day 4 - Saturday - Udaipur
Arrive By : 08:00 Hrs
Depart At : 15:30 hrs

Udaipur has an intriguing history. Constant unrest and sieges propelled the Rajputs to move their capital from Mewar to Udaipur. It is said that with its tranquil lakes flowing through, the king immediately visualized it as a soaring capital of his empire. The first visit is of course to the City Palace positioned atop a jagged promontory dotted with charming mahals and turrets, all built in the 16th century.

Chug along the tranquil waters of Udaipur lakes around the Lake palace, which now serves as a deluxe hotel. Have lunch there and enjoy a spot of shopping for traditional Rajasthani paintings before departing to the next town, Jaiselmer.
Day 5 - Sunday – Jaiselmer
Arrive By : 09:15 Hrs
Depart At : 23:45 Hrs

Founded in the 10th century by Maharaja Rao Jaisal after whom the city is named, Jaiselmer is one of the oldest fortified towns in Rajasthan. Huddled in the heart of Thar Desert, this town is a symbol of undying romance. One of the major trade routes in the yesteryears, this city has flourished throughout the years. The havelis left behind by the wealthy Jain merchants adorn this quintessential region and lots of frescoes speak aloud of the glorious trading days. And the Golden Fort crowns every other highlight here and is the only inhabited middle age fortress on planet.

A sumptuous lunch aboard awaits you after which a fascinating camel safari takes you around the lovely sand dunes of Jaiselmer. Call it a day with a cultural program and dinner at a five star hotel.
Day 6 - Monday - Jodhpur
Arrive By : 07:00 Hrs
Depart At : 15:30 Hrs

Hugging the border of the expansive Thar Desert rests the regal town of Jodhpur alive with tales passed down since 15th century. And you are simply transported back to the medieval age. You set out after breakfast to the fabled Mehrangarh Fortress perched atop a rugged hill towering over Jodhpur. Upon crossing the ornate but thick palace gates, a panoramic vista of breathtaking countryside greets you not to mention the several quaint mahals inside.

A small group of cenotaphs erected in white marble and sandstones provide yet another feast to eyes. Before heading towards the train, have a superb lunch at the Palace Hotel.

As you step in this prestigious seat of Mughal rule, the first obvious stop is the Agra Fort. Fulfill your gourmet fancies of typical Mughal cuisine at a five star hotel in Agra.
