Travel in a Palace on Wheels - Himalayan Footsteps

In Rajasthan, visitors can go on one of the greatest rail journeys in the world: You can board a palace on wheels and be carried through the wonders of this state, enjoying the luxurious facilities and services on the train. The 14 coaches of the train match the splendour of Rajasthan’s royal past in interior and aesthetics. The passengers stay in en-suite twin chambers on the train, they are carpeted, air-conditioned, and have personal attendants.

The enchanting journey starts in Delhi and winds its way through the beautiful land of Maharajas with stops in Jaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Chittaurgarh, Udaipur,  Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bharatpur and Agra. Rajasthan is one of the most dreamt about, romantic and mysterious destinations in India. The beauty of its cities carries the splendour of old times. Outside the city gates lies the bare desert, evoking dreams of camel caravans carrying precious goods on their trade routes.

The Palace on Wheels is not India’s only luxury train – in Rajasthan you can also board “Royal Rajasthan on Wheels”, “The Royal Orient”or “Fairy Queen”, the oldest luxury train in the world. The “Deccan Odyssee” takes you on a journey through Maharastra and Goa, The “Golden Chariot” runs through the wonders of Karnataka and “Maharaja Express” , a new luxury train, and one of the most luxurious in the world, runs from Kolkata and Mumbai to Delhi.
