Itinerary

DAY 1Udaipur to KumbhalgarhAodhiL,D50km / 30micycling

Day 1: Udaipur to Kumbhalgarh

Our guide meets you around 07:30am at your hotel. We ride in the mountains on this day. The Aravallis are one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world and its rugged, worn down hills are thickly wooded and littered with numerous mountain streams and brooks. The terrain is slightly challenging and offers excellent opportunites to experience at close quarters the lifestyles of the Bhil tribals – an indigenous tribal people of India and one of the oldest inhabitants of the subcontinent. Later in the evening, we climb the rugged Kumbalgarh Fort, surrounded by a 35km wall with 365 temples within.

DAY 2Ghanerao via RanakpurGhaneraoB,L,D50km / 30micycling

Day 2: Ghanerao via Ranakpur

This is one of the best cycling route of the trip. The undulating ride adds a marginal challenge for biking, but you have something breathtaking up ahead – the Ranakpur Jain Temple. This architectural wonder in white marvel is known for exquisitely carved 1444 pillars.

DAY 3Sardar Samand LakeSardar Samand LakeB,L,D50km / 30micycling

Day 3: Sardar Samand Lake

We start cycling early this day across lush millet vegetation and carpets of yellow mustard fields. The ride remains largely flat. You can enjoy the vistas with ease and look forward to your stay at the Sardar Samand Palace.

An erstwhile hunting lodge, the palace was built by Maharaja Umaid Singh in 1933. Set in tranquil surroundings of a lake, the low lying Aravalli hill ranges visible in the distance, and vast shrubby forests teeming with wildlife, the heritage resort is a great stop. Here you can relax in the comfort of a pool with peacocks strutting by the side or if you feel you still have the legs, take a walk around the property spread over hundreds of acres of land.

DAY 4JodhpurB45km / 27micycling

Day 4: Jodhpur

On the last day of the ride we make our way towards the fabled blue city of Jodhpur. We ride through a quiet and narrow backroad that offers ample opportunites for spotting wild animals like the black buck,blue bulls and if you’re lucky, the shy but extremely graceful Indian Gazelle too. As you ride past swaying masses of yellow mustard and wheat, you’ll meet run into hordes of camels and goats as well as friendly villagers always happy to pose for a photograph or two. After reaching Jodhpur, we transfer you to your hotel or airport for your onward journey.
