Rajasthan and North India Overview

Why Rajasthan & North India: This is one of the most visited and famous areas of India, renowned for its dramatic history, romantic desert cities, ancient and mysterious temples, massive hilltop forts and colourful desert peoples, as well as the most beautiful building in the world, the Taj Majal.

When to Go: The best time to visit Rajasthan is October to mid April. Clear blue skies and a moderate to slightly chilly temperature (particularly Dec – Jan) make these months the perfect time to visit.

August and September are warm to occasionally hot in the day with cool evenings.

Combine With: The vibrant city of Varanasi situated on the banks of the holy Ganges River and the temples of Khajuraho with their exquisite carvings and erotic sculptures.

What Clients Say

“As a traveller who enjoys both culture & especially adventure, Taj Temples & Tigers not only met but exceeded my expectations. I found India to be a fascinating country of many contrasts and the balance of this tour was just right. The planning by Natural Focus Tours was absolutely impeccable.”
“This particular trip was as smooth as silk, thanks to the efforts put in by Annie, AKA Anne-Marie Zambelli, our larger than life Tour Escort. I was goggle eyed at the level of care she provided, not to mention her first aid kit! It was an absolute joy to be able to sit back and just enjoy the trip without having to worry about any of the details in what is a fairly chaotic country. Suffice to say, thank you Natural Focus for a wonderful experience.”
“Natural Focus organised the holiday for us, nothing was a problem, they gave us excellent advice about where to visit and how long we needed at each destination. It was a fabulous holiday with something for everyone within a short travelling distance. Our guide was with us for the entire trip; he was a delight, with a great sense of humour and an ability to track down anything, especially good food.”
