Rajasthan Culture & Camel Trek

Rajasthan in north-east India is the land of Rajput Kings, a group of warrior clans, who have controlled this part of India for 1000 years. It is a colorful state steeped in history and culture; with stunning and elegant palaces, forts, lakes, sand Dunes, wildlife sanctuaries and beautiful temples. The state is diagonally divided as the hilly and rugged south-east region and dry and barren north-east Thar Desert.

A trip to Rajasthan is never complete without taking a camel trek which gives you an experience of ancient merchant's life traveling from the East to West through the desert lands. It is also a great chance to explore the Rajasthani lifestyle in spectacular sand dunes, villages and castles. What entices most about Rajasthan is the traditional lifestyle, festivity and friendly and warm people.

In addition, we'll take a tour of the popular Golden Triangle circuit which provides some wonderful sights of northern India - including the one & only Taj Mahal - perhaps the greatest monument of love of a king to his queen.

Due to the climate constraints, this program is scheduled only during the cooler months from November to February.

During the daytime, the sun can be blistering, while desert nights can get very cold. Sore, even blistered, bums after a hard day’s riding is not uncommon so extra cushioning is recommended. Riding the camel is not as easy as it appears and a relaxed and steady rhymth will make for a comfortable ride. Needless to say, galloping on a camel is not advised for amateurs.
