With its vast deserts and sand dunes, the Land of Kings is frequently thought of as having an arid climate, but its rich culture, colorful houses painted in blue, pink, and gold, the tribal clothing that includes mirror-adorned ghagra cholis, and folk dance and music breathe the spirit of an eternal spring into this majestic land.
Rajasthan is the largest state in our nation, making it nearly impossible to visit every street that is filled with lore about courageous kings and fearless queens. However, to ensure that you get to sample all the flavors of Rajasthan, we have put together the best backpacking trip to Rajasthan from Delhi.
On this trip, we'll visit three former princely states that, in the Middle Ages, served as the cornerstone of Rajputana and are still the top three tourist destinations in Rajasthan today.
We are giving you the opportunity to travel to Udaipur, Jodhpur, and Jaisalmer all in one trip with this Rajasthan vacation package.
Our first visit would be the "City of Lakes," sometimes referred to as the "White City" because to the usage of ivory marble in its historic forts and palaces, as well as other white-colored structures around the state.
The city palace, Lake Pichola, Sajjangarh Fort, as well as other top Udaipur attractions, are all included on your itinerary. You'll also get to explore the neighborhood market, where you can buy a bandhani-print sari, ethnic silver jewellery, handcrafted juttis, and real Rajasthani food.
Before travelling on to Jodhpur, our next stop, we will explore "The Venice of the East," the Kumbhalgarh fort, and the Haldighati museum.
Jodhpur, the second-largest city in Rajasthan, has been inhabited since 1459 AD, and its nickname, "The Blue City," is apt given that the majority of its forts, temples, and palaces are decorated in a vivid shade of blue. It is particularly well-known for the rare Marwari or Malani horses, which are unique to this region.
You just must visit the places we have hand-selected as being the most intriguing while in Jodhpur. We make sure that you get the most out of this trip by taking you to the magnificent Umaid Bhawan Palace, the famed Mehrangarh Fort, which Rajput monarch Rao Jodha built in 1459, as well as a heritage tour to Jaswant Thada, which is lighted when sunlight strikes it.
After spending the entire day enjoying enjoyable activities like a desert safari and camel rides, our final stop would be "The Golden City," where you will have the time of your life watching a cultural performance by Rajasthani folk groups as you sit under the starry night sky in the desert where we set up camp.
Rajasthan tourism is well known for its cultural diversity, and the best part is that this lovely state has something to offer for everyone. From paintings on walls to intricate designs on jharokha of palaces, art lovers will delight in the kaleidoscope of colours that Rajasthan offers in every corner. Aficionados of history would be drawn to the palaces and forts.
You should visit Rajasthan because of its historical importance, ancient customs, and diverse culture. The future? Perhaps looking into it will give you more motivation to return.
At 8 PM, the group will gather at the pickup location, where the trip captain will give a brief introduction.
After that, we’ll travel to Udaipur, also known as the “City of Lakes,” our first stop on the Rajasthan Backpacking trip, which is renowned for its regal architecture and romantic settings.
Note: IFFCO Chowk Metro Station will serve as the pick-up location.
Get ready to explore Udaipur after a scrumptious breakfast!
We will first head over to the City Palace which was built by Maharaja Udai Singh and built with granite and marble in a perfect blend of Medieval, European, and Chinese architecture. The complex has 11 palaces within it depicting mirror-work, marble work, murals, wall paintings, silver work, inlay-work, and colored glass that adorn the balconies, towers, and cupolas of the complex are worth admiring. Next, we will head over to the Sajjangarh palace aka The Monsoon Palace named after the Maharaj Sajjan Singh which is located atop a hill and offers a splendid view of Fateh Sagar Lake.
The Vintage car museum which is managed by the Royal families is a gem for every car lover as it showcases some of the most exquisite collections of royal antique cars.
We will wind up in Udaipur by visiting the famous lake Pichola & Fateh Sagar Lake
Overnight stay in a hotel at Udaipur
We will check out of our hotel after an early breakfast and drive to Jodhpur, which is known as the Blue City because nearly the entire city is covered in the colour.
We’ll stop at Kumbhalgarh Fort along the way, which is also known as The Great Wall of India because it is, after the Great Wall of China, the second-longest continuous wall in the world. It was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also one of the biggest fort complexes in the world.
We’ll also go to Haldighati’s Maharana Pratap Museum, which was established there to honor the Mewari Rana and his conflict with the Mughals. There are many historical artifacts on display at the museum.
We’ll check into our hotel when we get to Jodhpur. After dinner, spend the night in Jodhpur.
After an early breakfast, we’ll leave for a sightseeing tour of Jodhpur. One of the largest private residences in the world, Umaid Bhawan Palace is the final Royal Palace to be built. We would also stop at Bal Samand Lake on the way.
The Mehrangarh Fort, one of Rajasthan’s most magnificent forts perched atop a perpendicular cliff, will be our next stop.
Our heritage tour will conclude at Jaswant Thada, also referred to as The Taj Mahal of Mewar for its intricately carved marble buildings. It was constructed in 1899 by Maharaja Jaswant Singh’s son as a tribute to him.
We’ll return to our hotel in the evening, have dinner, and then spend the night in Jodhpur.
The trip to Bal Samand Lake is time-dependent.
We will check out of our hotel after an early breakfast and travel to Jaisalmer, also known as The Golden City, which is located in the Thar Desert.
We’ll check into our Swiss campsite as soon as we get to Jaisalmer. After that, we’ll travel to the Sam Sand Dunes for a desert safari, camel rides, and cultural performances by Rajasthani Folk groups, who showcase their skills in music and dance.
We’ll enjoy desert camping as dusk falls and spend the night gazing at the stars. After dinner, spend the night in Jaisalmer.
We’ll check out of our campsite after an early-morning breakfast and leave for a local sightseeing tour, where we’ll go to Jaisalmer City. On the way, we would stop at Kuldhara, a 200-year-old village that has been abandoned. One of Rajasthan’s most well-known haunted locations is called Ghost Village.
The Jaisalmer Fort, which is a living fort because half of the city’s population resides there, would be our next stop. It was recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2013 and is one of the biggest forts in the world.
We would also go to Gadisagar Lake, one of the city’s top attractions, which serves as the ideal vantage point to see the Jaisalmer Fort’s spectacle.
We’ll take a bus to Delhi in the evening for an overnight trip.
As all good things come to an end, our backpacking journey has also come to an end. We will be heading back to Delhi. Let’s fill the final day with some more music, laughter, and conversations to make our bus journey back merry and memorable! We will reach Delhi by evening and bid adieu to the journey with PlanTheUnplanned.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops? This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true.
