Rajasthan the `Land of the Maharajahs` is steeped in history. It boasts the finest sandstone fortress / palaces, and the colour and majesty of its people contrast starkly with the pastel shades of its desert landscape. We pass romantic towns spilling with lakes, temples and bazaars, whilst the desert sunsets make for a real taste of the exotic.
