Description of Cycling tour of Rajasthan with Taj Mahal

This ten day tailor made cycling tour of Rajasthan allows you to really get away from the tried and tested tourist routes and into the rural regions to be found between Udaipur and Jodhpur. Of course, there’s the small matter of Delhi, Agra and the Taj Mahal to be enjoyed first before a domestic flight whisks you away to Udaipur from where this trip's cycling section takes off.

Rajasthan is renowned for its palatial forts, Mughal architecture and regal heritage, and there’s nothing like a bike to get you under the skin of a state where untold adventures await around each and every bend. Cows, goats and pigs welcome your arrival into traditional villages whilst accommodation supplies the sustenance and the home comforts to keep you cycling in style.

Flat gradients, around lakes, and opportunities to spot wildlife, allow for naturally organic encounters to unfold as you ease your way into life in the saddle and take your time to really revel in Rajasthan. From the chaos of Delhi and the splendour of the Taj Mahal to meetings with camel herders and some steep ascents (if you’re in the mood) this tailor made cycling tour is all about finding your pace, in an unforgettable place, one pedal at a time.

Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet

1. Waste: As much as possible we eliminate the use of disposable plates, cups, and utensils. Where we must use disposable plates and cups, we try to use those made of paper instead of plastic.

2. Water: We educate our guests about ways of saving water: we post discreet signs reminding them to shut off faucets when not in use, and inviting our guests to accept towel and linen changes less often. Reduced water consumption directly reduces the amount of wastewater generated by our hotels.

3. Energy: We encourage the use of fans as the acclimatization devices with the lowest energy consumption and ask to not leave them on unnecessarily. Air conditioning equipment is accountable for some of the highest energy consumption, and we ask our guests to keep their room doors and windows closed while the air conditioning unit is on, and to turn it off when leaving the room. One degree variation in the comfort zone, which is 22°C-27°C, entails a 6% difference in power consumption. A reduction in acclimatization consumption, however, should not affect service quality.

4. Transport: The benefits of cycling are not just for the cyclist, they also help enhance the environment. Cycling helps reduce carbon emissions and also reduces pollutants in the air which are a threat to health. Cycling helps reduce noise and pollution, reduces traffic congestion and helps protect green spaces, monuments, and building from the adverse effects of pollution.

People

1. Friends and Neighbors: Social commitment has a firm place in our company culture and we regard it as our contribution to the sustainable development of society while helping communities to preserve heritage and culture.

Our itinerary in Udaipur includes the visit to Shilpgram, a rural arts and crafts complex that depicts the lifestyles of the folk and tribal people of the region. With an objective of increasing awareness and knowledge about the rural arts and crafts, the Shilpgram provides an opportunity to rural and urban artists to come together and interact through the process of workshops, as well as showcase their products.

On our way to Jodhpur, we provide an opportunity to visit the Bishnoi village. Bishnois are particularly keen to protect nature, especially plants and animal species, and to completely abolish the practice of hurting the environment. This is also the place where we can see how the weavers work together to create the “magic carpets”, locally referred as “durry”.

2. A Fair Deal: All the services provided to guests, such as transport, guide services, and services related to catering and accommodation are provided by local staff. Our tours include visits to local communities and countryside not traditionally on the tourist routes. This provides an opportunity for the creation of widespread economic and social benefits for local communities living on the route.
