Palace on Wheels (7 Nights/ 8 Days)
Delhi – Jaipur – Ranthambore – Chittorgarh – Udaipur – Jaisalmer – Jodhpur – Bharatpur – Agra – Delhi
India’s first luxury train, this evocative journey in regal luxury recalls a bye-gone era. Moving through the often-dramatic desert landscape the past unfolds revealing a time of autocratic maharajas, their reigns reflected in the forts, palaces and temples throughout Rajasthan.
The train travels to Rajasthan’s terracotta-pink capitol, Jaipur, then on to Ranthambhore National Park to seek tigers before visiting the massive Rajput fort complex at Chittorgarh and the exotically diverse towns of Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and finally Agra with its immortal Taj Mahal.
The 14 air-conditioned coaches are named after former Rajput states matching the aesthetics and interiors of the royal past. Each saloon has a mini pantry to ensure availability of hot and cold beverages, and refreshments. The modern conveniences have been thoughtfully provided, sofas to sink into, strategically placed lights to read by, wonderfully appointed beds with comfortable furnishings, inbuilt wardrobes and huge glass windows to watch the countryside roll past.
The coaches have state of the art amenities and services such as safes, channel music, temperature control facilities and WI FI internet access. There are two super deluxe suites, and the rest are deluxe.
The train has two lavish restrobar “Maharaja” and “Maharani” with a Rajasthani ambience serving palate tickling Continental, Chinese, Indian and Rajasthani cuisines. The restaurants offer seating arranged thoughtfully near the windows. Chefs in the attached pantry prepare Continental and Indian specialties, with an emphasis on the cuisine of Rajasthan.
The Palace on Wheels also boasts of a well-stocked bar offering the choicest of sprits of Indian and international brands.
