Rajasthan, the ‘land of royals’, is an excellent take-off point for those who are interested in Indian exotica but don’t know where to begin. This vast region makes for the western snout of India and is part desert, part hills, part royalty, part rural idyll. A long history of rival kingdoms and wars has left its bountiful heritage here in the form of many royal palaces and strategically built forts that continue to awe and intrigue to this very day.

This rural experience barely rubs away when we hit the biggest tourist attractions in Rajasthan the cities of Jodhpur and Jaipur. Both the cities abound with rich historical heritage that is best appreciated through daylong sightseeing tours of their many forts, palaces, temples, gardens, museums, and local bazaars. Not to be missed are some renowned eateries where you can savour authentic Rajasthani cuisine.

You can self-fund and pay the challenge costs yourself without the pressure of a minimum sponsorship target; or you can choose sponsorship and commit to raising a minimum amount for a charity of your choice.
