India: Palace on Wheels - The Thar Desert of Rajasthan

India: Palace on Wheels - The Thar Desert of Rajasthan

Located in northwest India, almost 60% of Rajasthan's territory lies in the Thar Desert. Host Sian Richards begins her journey in style aboard the luxurious Palace on Wheels' train; here you are treated as if you are Indian royalty. She stops in Jaisalmar, which dates back to the 12th century, and visits Fort Jaisalmar, which dates back to the 17th century. Next she travels on a camel safari with her guide, Nagar, across the windswept Sam Sand Dunes and stops at the Osian camel camp. She visits Jaipur, the second largest city in Rajasthan, and also known as the Blue City. Here she sees clusters of blue houses that glow like neon signs because of the copper sulfate used in the building materials to battle termites. Here she visits Mehrangarh Fort, which was built in the 17th century by Maharajah Gaj Singh. Her guide, BJ, takes her to Shar village to learn the secrets of Dhurri rug weaving and pottery making. Then, as a guest of the village chieftain and his family, she dines on a vegetarian meal, Rajasthani Thali, an assortment of tasty dishes all served together on a single plate. 07/09DE JSCA 30 min.
