The Best Rajasthan Itinerary for 5 Days or More

Pushkar blessing

Rajasthan is one of our favourite states in India. So, if you’re here looking for the best Rajasthan itinerary, you’ll be pleased to know you’ve come to the right place. We recently spent close to 3 weeks in Rajasthan, which is why it’s easy for me to suggest itineraries for 5 days, 7 days, and even 2 weeks. In this Rajasthan Itinerary, I’ll be sharing all the best places to visit, how to get around, where to eat & sleep, along with all of our top tips for travelling this fast-paced state in India.

If you ask me, no trip to India is complete without visiting Rajasthan. It’s arguably the most exciting state in all of India and without doubt the epitome of Indian culture. It’s a land of grandeur architecture, enchanting cities, mystical deserts, and rich royal history. All of which decorated in a plethora of vivid colour. Rajasthan is big, it’s loud, it’s crazy, and it will attack your senses in the best possible way.

When planning a Rajasthan Itinerary, it’s easy to underestimate just how big the state is. If the state were a country, it would be around the 63rd largest country in the world, which is pretty staggering. It’s therefore not too surprising to find that each city in Rajasthan has an entirely different vibe. You’ll have the time of your life hopping from the golden city to the pink city, and if time permits, onto the blue and white cities too.  

Having said that, it can be a daunting prospect planning your route in this truly vast and profound state. Thankfully, we’ve done all the leg work, and we’re here to help. So let’s get to it, here’s the best Rajasthan Itinerary for 5 days or more.

How Many Days to Spend in Rajasthan

As I’ve already mentioned, Rajasthan is an enormous state; so you could spend an entire month here and still barely scratch the surface. I’m sure some of you are backpacking India for an extended amount of time, in which case I recommend spending at least 10-14 days in Rajasthan. However, if you are visiting India on holiday for only 2-3 weeks, you’ll likely want to cut that time in half if you are to see other areas of India as well.  

Usually, when I put together itineraries, I focus on a specific length of time. However, it’s such a diverse group of travellers visiting Rajasthan, that I figured it isn’t a one size fits all on this occasion. So my conclusion was that I’d give a full low down on all of my favourite cities in Rajasthan, followed by suggested itineraries for 5 days, 7 days, and 14 days. Of course, you can follow my Rajasthan itinerary, or you can put together your own, using all the information in this blog post about the best cities in Rajasthan.

Rajasthan Itinerary Highlights

I go into quite a lot of detail regarding the best places to see and things to do in this Rajasthan. So if you’re short for time, or want a taster of what to expect, here is a quick overview of our Rajasthan highlights.

  • Spend the night in the desert on an overnight camel safari in Jaisalmer
  • Dance like nobody’s watching at the evening aarti by Pushkar Lake

The Best Places to Visit in Rajasthan

OK, now let’s start planning your Rajasthan itinerary, by taking a look at all the best places to visit. I’ll include a little overview of the area itself, as well as recommendations on what to do, where to sleep, where to eat etc.     

Jaipur

Jaipur is a magical city, exploding with history, culture, energy, and jaw-dropping architecture. Famed for being the ‘Pink City’ thanks to its trademark terracotta architecture, it’s one of the most visited cities not only in Rajasthan but in the whole of India. It also forms a part of the ever-popular golden triangle route.

With a population of over 3 million, Jaipur is the epitome of organised chaos. Vehicles, people, and a variety of wildlife from cows to camels fight their way for a space in the bustling metropolis. Just walking the streets is a spectacle in itself. Yet despite the mayhem, Jaipur is a vibrant, atmospheric, and exciting place to be.  

At the same time, the Pink City is bursting with world heritage sights and landmarks that are unbelievably impressive. You can soak in incredible views of the city at one of the many forts. Marvel over the architecture of the grand royal palaces; And visit one of a kind temples such as the Galta Ji Monkey Temple.

In short, Jaipur is a vital addition to any Rajasthan Itinerary.

The Best Things to do in Jaipur

Here’s a handful of the best things to do in Jaipur, but for more, see our 2 Day Jaipur Itinerary.

Patrika Gate

Patrika Gate is one of the most recognisable landmarks in Jaipur. Not only that, but with its one of a kind decorative design, it is easily one of the most instagrammable places in India. We were left mesmerised by the vibrant and intricate walkways, that serves as a true reflection of Rajasthani culture. A must see! 

*For more info, see our complete guide to Patrika Gate here.

PATRIKA GATE IN JAIPUR

Amber Palace

The Amber Palace, constructed from red sandstone and marble, is easily one of the most beautiful places to visit in Jaipur. It was once residence to the Jaipur Royal Family before they relocated to the City Palace. However, in our opinion, Amber Palace is the most impressive out of the 2. Inside the palace grounds, you will find a series of pristine gardens, intricate courtyards, and photo opportunities, including a stunning mirrored room.  

While we suggest making Amber Palace a priority on your Jaipur Itinerary, we have to ask that you don’t participate in elephant rides. Many tourists opt for elephant rides up to the palace entrance, without knowing the horrors behind animal tourism

*For more info see our complete guide to Amer Fort & Amber Palace here.

One of our favourites was Amer Fort, Jaipur
Galta Ji (Monkey) Temple

Galta Ji Temple is one of the most unusual temples we visited throughout our time in India. While the official name is Galta Ji, most refer to it as Monkey Temple, due to the thousands of monkeys that occupy the grounds. Built within a mountain pass in the Aravali hills, natural springs from the mountain replenish the temples 7 holy baths. Here you will find pilgrims bathing in the sacred water, believed to cleanse away sins and revitalise the body.

*For more info, see our complete guide to Monkey Temple Jaipur here.

Nahargarh Fort

Historically, along with Amer Fort and Jaigarh Fort, Nahargarh Fort helped form a defensive wall around the old Royal City. Located high in the Aravali mountains, the breathtaking fortress provides an unrivalled view over the bustling city below. The fort is famed for being an architectural wonder, as well as being one of the best sunset spots in Jaipur.

Udaipur

Next up we head to the White City of Rajasthan, or as it’s more commonly known, Udaipur. In my opinion, Udaipur is another unmissable spot to include on your Rajasthan itinerary. However, you’re probably noticing a pattern whereby I say this about every damn city on this list. If you’re short for time, I’m aware I’m probably not making this too easy for you. But, it just means you’ll have to save what you miss for another trip.

Anyhow, I digress. Let’s get back to what makes Udaipur so awesome. When I think of Udaipur, I imagine opulence, romance, and tranquillity. This city is remarkably beautiful, and something about it made us want to stay a lot longer than our itinerary would allow.  

Udaipur’s history is rich and royal, evident by the sumptuous palaces which are abundant throughout the city. The Udaipur City Palace is one of our favourites in Rajasthan. And you can’t help but dream looking out at the old Lake Palace which is now a 5* hotel. 

What’s more, the serenity of the lakes and surrounding nature, had us forgetting we were even in a city at all. Commonly referred to as the ‘Venice of the East’, Udaipur offers a rare chance to relax on your trip through strenuous Rajasthan.

The Best Things to do in Udaipur

Here’s a handful of the best things to do in Udaipur, but for more, see our 2 Day Udaipur Itinerary.

Udaipur City Palace

It isn’t without reason that the city palace is one of the top things to do in Udaipur. The grandeur marble & granite structure stands proudly as the landmark of the city, and we, for one, were taken aback by its sheer magnificence.  If we were to recommend just one City Palace to visit in Rajasthan, it would have to be this one.

*For more info, see our complete guide to Udaipur City Palace here.

UDAIPUR CITY PALACE

Monsoon Palace

When you arrive in Udaipur and spot the ethereal looking castle stood proudly in the hills; that my friends is the Monsoon Palace. The palace once served as a royal residence to the Mewar Dynasty and set 944m above sea level provides breathtaking panoramic views over the city. For the same reason, it is considered one of the best spots to watch sunset in Udaipur.

*For more info, see our complete guide to Monsoon Palace Udaipur here.

Dharohar Dance Show at Bagore Ki Haveli 

For a taste of authentic Rajasthani culture, the Dharohar Dance Show is an unmissable experience when visiting Udaipur. Set within the courtyard of Bagore Ki Haveli, you can expect a vibrant and entertaining performance that showcases the tradition and culture of Rajasthani folklore. The artistry of the performers is spectacular, and combined with the charming setting, makes for an unforgettable evening.

Lake Pichola

Udaipur is also known as the ‘city of lakes, and Lake Pichola is the most famous with a lot of the action centred around it. Boasting a jaw-dropping backdrop of the Aravalli mountain range, I’d freely say it’s one of the most picturesque locations in all of India. A variety of hotels, ghats, restaurants, and rooftop bars surround the lake so that you can enjoy the view from several different vantage points. Relaxing around the lake with a beer in hand turned out to be one of our favourite things to do in the Udaipur.

Jaisalmer

So we’ve covered the white, pink, and blue cities, now we have the ‘golden city’. Jaisalmer got its nickname as the golden city thanks to its abundant desert dunes, and medieval architecture clad in golden sandstone. A perfect amalgamation of culture, history, and adventure, Jaisalmer turned out to be one of our favourite destinations in all of India.

Upon arriving into Jaisalmer, we couldn’t help but feel like we’d step foot into a fairytale. The momentous Jaisalmer Fort stands as a citadel and centre point of the city, while ornate temples, luxurious Havelis, and serene lakes adorn the golden city. 

The highlight of Jaisalmer, however, has to be the desert safaris. Climb atop a camel and make your way deep into the Thar desert, where you can camp beneath the stars and sing traditional desert songs around a campfire. If riding camels isn’t up your street, you can take a jeep safari instead. But either way, an overnight desert safari is a must.

Here’s a handful of the best things to do in Jaisalmer but for more, see our 2 Day Jaisalmer Itinerary.

Overnight Camel Safari

Jaisalmer borders the mysterious Thar desert, and one of the essential things to do when visiting the ‘golden city’, is a camel safari. From trotting through the golden dunes atop camels, followed by campfire nights under the milky way, it is no wonder that tourists travel from far and wide to take part in this magical experience. Even if you are planning a short Rajasthan trip itinerary, you should make this experience a priority. With tours ranging from 1/2 a day to 3 days+, there is something to suit everybody.

*For more info, check out our complete guide to an overnight camel safari in Jaisalmer.

Jaisalmer Fort

Nestled alongside the golden Thar desert, Jaisalmer Fort is not your average fort. It is unique, as it’s one of the only residential fortifications in the world, with houses that date back generations, as well as temples, shops, and restaurants too. Exploring the fort is one of the most exciting things you can do in the golden city as you never know where the labyrinth of alleyways might lead you. Hunting for rooftop bars, epic viewpoints, talented artisans, and eerie fortune tellers, was one of our favourite ways to spend the day.

TOP THINGS TO DO JAISALMER SUNSET

Gadisar Lake

One of the more relaxing places to visit in Jaisalmer is Gadisar Lake. It’s a sacred lake to Hindus, and the religious temples ‘floating’ in the water add to the magic. It’s a peaceful spot to visit alone, and you’ll often find several locals and tourists meditating here during sunrise or sunset. But it’s also a fun place to visit with your family or travel buddy when you can go boating on the lake, or enjoy a walk around the embankment.

Pushkar

Out of all the cities in Rajasthan, Pushkar is probably the most laidback. The town itself is small in comparison to other cities in the state. And you quickly feel like part of a community as you bump into the same familiar faces everywhere you go. It’s a place of creative expression, and one of the highlights is the evening aarti where you can dance around the lake and witness all kinds of talent.

Considered a holy city, you will often see religious ceremonies taking place around Pushkar lake. These can be fascinating to watch, but you should avoid the ‘priests‘ like the plague. They will insist you have to wear a wristband to enter the lake area. And once they’ve put it on you, they’ll ask for an extortionate payment while guilt-tripping you about karma.  

An important event in the Pushkar calendar is the annual camel fair. If you are lucky enough to be in town for that, you’re in for a real treat. This event is weird but wonderful, and a perfect example of just how crazy things can get in India. We loved it!

Best Things to do in Pushkar

Here’s a handful of the Pushkar highlights, but for more see this list of the best things to do in Pushkar

Pushkar Lake

Pushkar Lake is the centre point of the town, and it’s the first place you should head to once you arrive. You’ll immediately understand what I mean by how laidback Pushkar feels relative to other cities in Rajasthan. You’ll also understand what I said about the relentless priests. Regardless of the scams, the lake is a holy place for Hindus, and you must take off your shoes before stepping foot onto its banks. This rule is for everybody, so be respectful and remove your shoes. I highly recommend visiting the lake at sunset for the daily evening aarti, which is always a magical way to end the day.

Savitri Temple

Savitri Temple is one of many interesting temples in Pushkar, but this one is especially impressive due to its hilltop location. To reach the temple, you can take a short hike from the lake, or there’s a cable car. It’s a 20-25 minute climb on foot, so if you’re fit and able, I recommend the scenic hike. The views over Pushkar intensify the higher you climb, and you’ll encounter several monkeys & other wildlife on the way. For the best experience, it’s best to visit for sunrise or sunset.

Pushkar Camel Fayre

If you’re fortunate enough to be in Pushkar for the camel fayre, you’re in for quite the experience. It’s the only time of year when the town is anything but peaceful; however, the wild festivities are one of a kind, and it’s one of our favourite memories of India. Historically, the event started as a camel trading market, and over the years it’s grown in both popularity and eccentricity. Now it’s a full-blown festival, with crazy competitions, live performances, market stalls, funfairs, and of course, lots and lots of camels.

  • Healthy: Cafe Nature’s Blessing
  • Breakfast:  Deja Brew

Jodhpur

The next city worth considering for your Rajasthan trip itinerary is Jodhpur. Also known as the “The Blue City”, Jodhpur is famous for its colossal fort, blue houses, and impressive temples. Unfortunately, we didn’t get around to visiting Jodhpur due to contracting a nasty case of the ‘Delhi belly.’ But we know of many travellers who speak very highly of their time there.  

As I haven’t visited Jodhpur for myself, I wouldn’t like to make recommendations; therefore, I suggest you check out this awesome list of things to do in the blue city.

Bundi

If you’re keen to wander a little off the beaten track in Rajasthan, you should certainly consider visiting Bundi. Bundi is a peaceful historic town that allows you a taste of what it’s like in the ‘real India‘. A luxury, or should I see experience, that is often lost in more touristic destinations.

Again, our timeframe didn’t allow us to make it to Bundi on our last trip, but if I had my time in Rajasthan over, I’d make it a priority. The history of the city fascinates me, with legends of old tribes and heroic battles. Not to mention the plethora of nature which includes rivers, lakes, and waterfalls.

As I haven’t visited Bundi for myself, I wouldn’t like to make recommendations; therefore, I suggest you check out this Bundi Travel Guide.

Bundi rajasthan

Ranthambore National Park

Another spot I wish I’d had the chance to visit is the Ranthambore National Park. The park is a prime destination for spotting tigers in their natural habitat, and who doesn’t want to lay their eyes on the majestic Bengal tiger? It has to be one of the ultimate Indian experiences, up there with visiting the Taj Mahal, and it’s not an opportunity that arises so often.

So why didn’t we visit? Ultimately, it came down to timing. We only had a 2-month visa for India, so, unfortunately, we had to compromise some stuff. You’ll have to make tough choices all the time in India. There’s just so much to see, and even with all the time in the world, it would never be enough.

Anyhow, to spot the endangered Bengal tiger in the wild, you have an excellent chance at Ranthambore. Depending on your itinerary & budget, you might prefer to visit Sariska Tiger Reserve instead, which has a lower concentration of Bengal tigers and is the cheaper option. Either way, if you spot a tiger, I want to know about it, so please send us your pics!

Tips & Advice for Travelling Rajasthan

Rajasthan is a vibrant, wild, and exciting place to travel. At the same time, it can be overwhelming, confusing, and even sometimes scary. So here are some travel tips and advice that we accumulated during our time in Rajasthan. Hopefully, it will help ensure a fun, safe, and stress-free trip of a lifetime.

Best Time to Visit Rajasthan

The best time to visit Rajasthan is during the Indian Winter, which runs from October to February. During this time you can expect perfect weather for sightseeing – Ie. The temperatures are cooler, and there is very little rain. It’s also the period where many festivals take place in Rajasthan, such as Diwali, Pushkar Camel Fayre, and Dev Deepawali. If you are sensitive to the heat, you may wish to keep mornings and late afternoons free outdoor activities, as the lunchtime hours get incredibly hot all year round. It’s advisable to avoid Rajasthan altogether during the months of Summer or Monsoon.  

Pushkar Camel Fayre

Getting Around in Rajasthan

Rajasthan is a well-connected state, and you can generally travel from city to city with ease and at very little expense. Our favourite way to get around is by bus, as they are affordable, you can book very last minute, and you can travel through the night. I highly recommend travelling through the night as not only do you save a night on accommodation, but it means you avoid travel time eating into your valuable exploring time. We always booked our buses using redbus.com as they have an English speaking helpline should there ever be any issues with your booking.

Another option is to travel via train, which is slightly more expensive but arguably a tad more comfortable. The only issue with train travel is you need to book in advance, which means there isn’t much room for flexibility should you want to stay longer in one place, and cut short in another. You can book trains up to 6 months in advance using 12go Asia.

Most of the bigger cities in Rajasthan also have airports; however, I’d avoid this mode of transport when going from city to city. Often you have to change over in Delhi as there are no direct flights, and it works out far more expensive than travelling by train or bus.  

Safety in Rajasthan

The topic regarding safety in Rajasthan and India, in general, is as complex as the country itself. Every individual has a different experience, and while there are many horror stories, we can honestly say we encountered nothing overly negative ourselves. By that, I mean we were not the victims of crime, theft, physical/verbal abuse and the like.  

Having said that, there were times when we felt uncomfortable and scared. Sometimes it was warranted, other times, it was not. You see, the biggest issue for us travelling India as a lesbian couple wasn’t even our sexuality, it was our gender. Being a foreign woman in India arouses a lot of attention. And like I said earlier, what we recognise as socially acceptable behaviour is not necessarily the same in Indian culture. For example, staring, taking photos without asking, or invasion of personal space can come across as intimidating, even when it’s not. 

So girls, be prepared to carry yourself confidently and don’t be afraid to say something should anybody cross the line. Unfortunately, there are many reports of women being groped by local men. If you find yourself in this position, it’s best to call him out, as other locals will step in to help you and probably give him a slap while they’re at it.

Otherwise, the biggest threat to tourists is petty theft crimes such as pickpocketing and bag snatching. We suggest keeping your belongings close to you at all times and use a small padlock or compartmental bag to keep your valuables safe. When travelling at night, avoid being alone in parks or dark areas.

Finally, It pays to make yourself aware of the common scams in India, so in turn, you can avoid them.

Travel Insurance

With that, don’t even think about going to Rajasthan without travel insurance. Travel insurance will protect you against illness, injury, theft, and cancellations. If the unlikely event that something goes wrong, you’ll want the best cover money can buy.

For this reason, we always recommend World Nomads for travel insurance. They are affordable, offer a variety of packages and add ons, and allow you to make amendments to your policy while travelling. Say, for example, you go scuba diving or hiking a mountain, World Nomads will amend your plan accordingly. It’s a super handy feature that we’ve used numerous times including the time we trekked to Annapurna Base Camp.

If you need further convincing, read our article on why you need travel insurance. Or get an on-the-spot quote from World Nomads using the form below.

Alcohol, Drugs, & Parties in Rajasthan

If you’re looking to party, Rajasthan isn’t the place. You’ll want to get yourself to the likes of Goa, Manali, or Hampi. But if you enjoy a few drinks of an evening time, alcohol is easy to find at many bars and restaurants. Just check in advance so that you’re not disappointed when you go to order. 

The local drug of choice is, of course, Bhang. For those of you who don’t know what Bhang is, it is an edible form of cannabis. You’ll find Bhang shops all over Rajasthan, selling Bhang Lassis – a tasty beverage mixed with milk, sugar, and fruits. Or alternatively bhang cakes or cookies. Bhang forms a big part of ancient Hindu tradition, and they believe it cures many ailments. It produces a similar effect as smoking cannabis; however, it can last longer and also take a lot longer to kick in. If it is your first time experimenting with Bhang, it is worth educating yourself on the effects before partaking.

Social Etiquette in Rajasthan

Rajasthan is one of the holiest and most socially conservative states in all of India. It’s important to keep in mind that what might be socially acceptable in your home country, is likely to be viewed entirely different here. Thankfully, most Indians are forgiving toward foreigners to a certain extent; however, to avoid unwanted attention and embarrassment, it’s good to know the dos and don’ts. In which case, I recommend this article regarding social etiquette in India, which includes dress codes, table manners, temple etiquette etc.

At the same time, you’ll likely be surprised by some of the aspects of Indian culture. And in all honestly, you’ll probably be offended from time to time. But again, it’s important to remember that the culture is entirely different from the western world, and embracing the unique Indian culture is all part and parcel of the experience.

Stay Connected in Rajasthan

If, like us, you rely on the internet when you travel (let’s face it, who doesn’t anymore), we have the perfect solution. After coming home to too many hefty phone bills and buying countless international sim cards, we were desperate for an affordable solution. 

That’s when we discovered TravelWifi. TravelWifi’s portable pocket wifi allows us to quickly and securely connect when we need it the most. Click the link for more information on coverage, packages, and the latest offers.
