Rajasthan is the most colorful, traditional, vibrant and exotic area of India. We have coordinated this incredible itinerary to include two of India’s elaborate celebrations. The republic day ceremonious parade on Rajpath, New Delhi - the parade showcases India's Defense Capability, Cultural and Social Heritage. The desert festival in Jaisalmer is similar to the Pusknar Camel festival, but with a lot fewer tourists and photographers. Set amidst the dramatic background of golden sands dunes in the surreal Thar Desert, the festival is filled with three days of multi-cultural performances; fire dancers, traditional dancers, camel races, musicians with traditional instruments, turban tying competitions, camel polo games and more.
