ITINERARY - New Delhi to New Delhi
Below is a day by day itinerary of the above tour where we`ve laid out a probable account of how the tour will proceed. We`ve given tourist information like places of interest etc. In our Destination Guide. This is a provisional itinerary and events beyond our control can spoil any pre-planned itinerary, hence having a flexible attitude is very crucial on such tours. Since our accommodations are booked in advance we make every effort to reach our destination for the day.
Day 1 - New Delhi - Bharatpur (200 KM) You shall be boarding a bus/coach from our partner hotel in New Delhi to Bharatpur (ETD 0700 hrs). A 4-5 hour journey will bring you to Bharatpur (ETA 12:00 hrs). After lunch, we shall be having an exhaustive briefing regarding the riding conditions & safety.
Day 2 - Bharatpur (short familiarisation ride to Deeg - 90 KM) Early morning you can visit the Keoladeo Ghana National Park and do some bird watching. Soon after breakfast, we shall be doing a "familiarisation" ride (in an effort to know your bike better, to get familiar with its controls and the riding conditions in India) to Deeg where we also visit the beautiful Palace. The rest of the evening is free for leisure.
Day 3 - Bharatpur - Jaipur (215 KM) After breakfast you`ll kick-start your motorcycle tour and head towards Jaipur, the state capital of Rajasthan.
Day 4 - Jaipur (Sight-seeing day) The day is yours for sightseeing and Jaipur has a lot to offer in that field. A bus coach and an English guide will take you around the most popular spots (0830-1630 hrs).
Day 5 - Jaipur - Nawalgarh (195 KM) Leaving Jaipur, you head north-west on the NH-11 towards the Shekhwati region, to the town of Nawalgarh. Referred to as the "open air art gallery" of Rajasthan, the entire Shekhawati region is dotted with fascinating mansions (havelis) embellished with frescoes & colourfully painted walls.
Day 6 - Nawalgarh (optional ride) Referred to as the "open air art gallery" of Rajasthan, the entire Shekhawati region is dotted with fascinating mansions (havelis) embellished with frescoes & colourfully painted walls. You may either explore the town or use the day for rest/ relaxation. Alternatively, if you are keen to ride, we`ll be organising a short ride in the surrounding region (optional).
Day 7 - Nawalgarh - Bikaner (250 KM) Joining the NH-11 again, you`ll head westwards towards the city of Bikaner, one of the famous desert cities of Rajasthan.
Day 8 - Bikaner (Sight-seeing day) Bikaner`s spectacular landscape is dominated by the indomitable Junagarh Fort and the red sandstone Lalgarh Palace. The fascinating old city & its bazaars are well worth a visit and so is the National Research Centre on Camel (the only such centre in Asia).
Day 9 - Bikaner - Jaisalmer (360 KM) Today we turn south-westwards on NH-15 and head for Jaisalmer, another beautiful desert town located in the Thar desert. It`s the longest riding day of the tour so deservingly, we`ll be stopping en route at Phalodi, for a lunch as well as to see hundreds of migratory Demoiselle Cranes at the nearby village of Khichan, reaching Jaisalmer just in time to see the sunset behind the "Golden Fort".
Day 10 - Jaisalmer (Sight-seeing day) The day is yours for visiting the "Living Fort" (yes, its the only fort with a fourth of Jaisalmer`s population living within its walls) and other inquisitively carved mansions which make for some of the most beautiful buildings in the state.
Day 11 - Jaisalmer - Desert Camp (70 KM) After spending the morning in Jaisalmer, its time to move further into the Thar desert. A couple of hour`s ride will bring you to Khuri, a small village amongst sandunes. Accommodation is in comfortable tented camps inclusive of a Camel ride into the Sunset and a cultural program of Rajasthani music & dance.

Day 14 - Jodhpur - Ranakpur - Kumbhalgarh (225 KM) After Breakfast it`ll be time to bid adieu to "the blue city" and take your journey further south towards Ranakpur, a small town located in a wooded valley on the western side of the Aravali range, famous for the white marble Jain temple with intricate carvings. Your final destination today will be a small village of Kelwara situated 6 KM from Kumbhalgarh.
Day 15 - Kumbhalgarh - Udaipur (85 KM) The Mewar fortress of Kumbhalgarh is a remarkable battlement surrounded by a wildlife sanctuary, home to a very large variety of wild life, some of which are highly endangered species. This impregnable fort fell only once to the combined forces of four kingdoms including Emperor Akbar. After visiting the Kumbhalgarh Fort you`ll be proceeding to Udaipur, the city of lakes.
Day 16 - Udaipur (Sight-seeing day) Udaipur, a tourists delight as it is, will most likely have you spending the next two days visiting all it has to offer. The last evening in Udaipur will be a great time to absorb the stunning views of the "Pichola Lake" from the sunset point or one of the numerous roof-top restaurants lining the "ghats" around the lake and reminiscing the past few days after you left Bharatpur, as the sun sets.
Day 17 - Udaipur - Chittorgarh - Bijaipur (150 KM) Heading north-east from Udaipur, you first stop today will be the spectacular fort of Chittorgarh, one of the most romantic of Rajasthan`s fortifications. After a visit to the Fort, you`ll ride further 40 KM to Bijaipur, a small hamlet amidst gentle slopes of the surrounding hills.
Day 18 - Bijaipur (optional round trip in the surrounding region 50-70 KM) The village of Bijaipur has a wonderful setting and just a walk through the lanes & alleys can be quite an experience, specially if you are someone keen to observe a typical Indian village lifestyle. In the afternoon, we`ll also be organizing a ride in the surrounding region through small village roads (optional).
Day 19 - Bijaipur - Bundi (155 KM) About 150 Km north-east of Bijaipur lies the quaint town of Bundi. Site of yet another impressive fort, the Taragarh, it is also known particularly for its architectural note seen in its ornate forts, palaces, and step-well reservoirs known as "baoris".
Day 20 - Bundi - Ranthambhore National Park (125 KM) Today`s destination lies further north-east of Bundi and is home to the famous Royal Bengal Tiger. Situated in Sawai Madhopur district of southeastern Rajasthan, Ranthambhore was formerly the hunting grounds for the Maharajahs of Jaipur before Indian independence. Ranthambhore, now a Project Tiger reserve since 1973, is also home to other major wild animals including the leopard, nilgai, dhole, wild boar, sambar, hyena, sloth bear, chital and a variety of birds & reptiles. Soon after arriving you will head out for a safari through the national park.
Day 21 - Ranthambhore - Bharatpur (250 KM) Today, you`ll saddle-up one last time and head back to Bharatpur. Having gone a full circle around Rajasthan you’ll be "homing" back to this bird sanctuary. Tonight`s dinner will be a "Farewell" dinner.
Day 22 - Bharatpur - New Delhi Today, it`ll be time to say good-bye to the Royal Enfields & Rajasthan. After breakfast, you`ll be boarding a bus coach for the last leg of this journey. However, first stop of the day will be the city of Agra where you will see the most spectacular of the monuments on this tour, The Taj Mahal. From Agra you shall proceed to New Delhi (ETA 1700 hrs).
