Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Accommodations

On this trip we stay in several wonderful properties, chosen either for their grandeur or location, many of which rank among the world's finest accommodations. On one night we stay at Manvar Desert Camp, a remote rustic retreat that provides a taste of old Rajasthan. And while the historic Rawla Narlai brims with character and romantic charm, the accommodations are a bit more casual than our other hotels.

Biking & Hiking in an Emerging World

As wonderfully fulfilling as travel is in India, it's not always easy. Within congested areas, even something as simple as crossing the road can be daunting—you may be sharing it at any one time with cars, pedestrians, rickshaws, bikes, scooters and even cows! Our itineraries and Trip Leaders remove as many obstacles and inconveniences as possible, but keep in mind that India is a developing country where different attitudes, litter and scenes of poverty can sometimes be jarring.

To better traverse the less-than-ideal and ever-changing cycling conditions, we use mountain bikes with touring tires on this trip.
