Jaipur is the eternal rose pink city and gateway to North India’s most colorful state, Rajasthan. Surrounded by the arid Aravalli Hills, Jaipur was founded in the early 18th century by Maharajah (King) Jai Singh II, and is steeped in legends and regal grandeur. Amidst the buzz of bazaars and shops, there are many historical architectural delights. The pink hue of this lively and inviting city is testimony to Jaipur’s last ruler Man Singh II, who ordered every home to be painted pink for the British royal visit of Prince of Wales and Edward V11 in 1876. The law still exists today within the old quarter.

This special experience lasts four hours and you can avoid the heat by setting out early in the morning or in the late afternoon.

At sunset, make your way amid natural, serene environs engulfing the camp on elephant-back, through a private jungle at the foothills of the Aravali Range, surrounded by wilderness and a few hamlets housing local villagers.
