After exploring the fort, ride to your hotel in Sawai Madhopur.

  • Other Recommendation

    At Dausa, 60 km outside Jaipur on the NH 48, a left takes you to Ranthambore. Head about 35 km straight, and you will reach a village called Abhaneri, popular for the Chand Baori, an ancient, 13-storeyed stepwell which featured in the movie "The Dark Knight Rises". We highly recommend that you take this detour on your way to Ranthambore.

Follow the road till Kota, where you will switch to NH27. 20 km further down, a left turn will take you to one of the most breath-taking views you have ever seen - the Garadia Mahadev Temple.

    Chittorgarh is a 3-hour ride from here.

  • Day 7 Chittorgarh
    • Breakfast
    • Overnight in Chittorgarh.

  • Other Recommendation

    Today, ride up to the hill-top fort complex of Chittor. The fort comprises a long list of World Heritage sites, the prominent ones being the Vijay Stambh, the Kirti Stambh, the Padmini Palace, Kumbha Palace, and the Rana Ratan Palace.

    The palace has a rich, and rather tragic history. Some of Rajasthan's traditions have emerged from within these walls, namely Jauhar (Royal ladies jump into the funeral pyre of their husbands in a group) and Purdah (ladies cover their faces in front of the men of the house).

    The fort is also the backdrop for the story of Allaudin Khilji wanting to get a glimpse of Rani Padmini, for which he eventually attacked Chittor.

    • Distance:120 Km
    • Breakfast

    • Visit the City Palace and Jagdish Temple.
    • Overnight in Udaipur.

  • Transfers

    Ride from the hotel in Chittorgarh to the hotel in Udaipur.

    Udaipur, the City of Lakes is a quick ride from Chittorgarh, and what helps is that the slick, four-lane NH 27 that you will be riding today is an easy road to ride on. You should reach in time for lunch, for which, we suggest that you head to Krishna Dal Bati. This is the place to be if you want to gorge on this Rajasthani specialty.

  • Activities

    Visit the City Palace and Jagdish Temple.

    After a hearty lunch, the gorgeous City Palace makes for a good visit. It was built by Maharana Udai Singh II (founder of Udaipur) in the 16th century, and is the main highlight of the city. The palace is located by the Pichola Lake, the largest, most picturesque lake in Udaipur. For Jagdish Temple, your next stop, leave your motorcycle behind and hop into a tuk-tuk on your own to the Jagdish Temple as you cannot take a motorcycle here. Dedicated to Lakshminarayan (Vishnu), this 17th century temple is renowned for its elaborate, hand-made sculpture work. After seeking your blessings at the Jagdish Temple, check into your hotel and settle in for the day.

  • Other Recommendation

    The rest of the evening is at leisure. We suggest that you ride to Udaipur's Shilpgram. It is a museum that brings together Rajasthan's rich and varied culture from all over the state. It also has shops selling clothes, decorations and handicrafts.

    Udaipur is also popular for its street-food, and for your fix of the local specialties, we suggest that you head to Sukhadia Circle. For those looking for a more upmarket pig-out spot, you must head to 1559 A.D. solely for their laalmaas, if not for anything else.

  • Day 9 Udaipur
    • Breakfast
    • Excursion to Nathdwara and visit to Monsoon Palace.
    • Overnight in Udaipur.

    Your last stop for the trip - the Monsoon Palace - takes you back to Udaipur City. The 19th century palace is perched on the Aravali Hills and offers a splendid panoramic view of Lake Pichola. At the foot of the palace, there's also the Raja Sajjan Singh Sanctuary, which should be a treat for wildlife lovers.
