Western Rajasthan

Concentrating on the Marwar region around Jodhpur, this tour reveals a wonderfully varied mix of cities, desert, hills, lakes, magnificent forts and architecture, rural countryside, horse riding opportunities and family life. Again, the drives are short and the architecture sublime. It can easily be linked with Eastern or Southern Rajasthan for a longer journey.
