AWE

jaipur, india

march 7-14, 2020

Itinerary

Get ready to be awestruck by both the beauty and the realness of India. Partnering with Bhati Tours, we will be remixing our version of the Golden Triangle. Taj Mahal. Pushkar Desert. Of course, the coveted festival around the world, Holi. Although Holi Festival of Colors is vibrant and fun, this trip is not for the faint of heart. These sections of India are unapologetic in its poverty and we will be traveling within cities that are 5 hours away from one another, sometimes locally. Be prepared to see it all. If you let it, it will transform you. It is guaranteed to humble you, and leave you in awe. This trip is a Tribe favorite and sells out quickly, as it’ll be our sixth run at this itinerary.

Sample itinerary is below.

Trip Intensity: 4 of 5

Day One:

  • Arrivals

  • Group Welcome Dinner

Day Two: Explore Jaipur

  • Explore Amber Fort & the Pink City

  • Textile Shopping in Jaipur: This is your time to get any sarees/garments made that you’d like to wear to the Taj Mahal or to take home tailored before the end of the trip.

Day Three: Explore the Desert Town of Pushkar

  • Around a two hour drive outside of Jaipur, the group will drive to Pushkar Desert. Here we will enjoy the cheapest shopping of the trip, as well as a camel safari.

  • This day marks the soft start to Holi. As we drive back the group will notice large bonfires popping up in the streets to signify the start of the holiday. Locals are burning things from this previous year to usher in the goodness of a new year. We encourage our Tribe members to participate.

Day Four: Happy Holi

  • After breakfast, we head into a local Jaipur neighborhood and celebrate Holi Festival of Colors with local family and friends. There’s truly nothing like this experience! Nothing. Get messy, and be ready to celebrate upon awakening, as Holi is a day time festival. Upon our afternoon return to the hotel, take time to regroup, rest, and reflect.

Day Five: Rest

  • Rest/Free Day

  • Midnight departure for the Taj Mahal

Day Six: Taj Mahal

  • Leaving at midnight, the group will take the five hour drive to Agra, India and experience the Taj Mahal in the morning. The group will spend a couple hours exploring the grounds, and taking our coveted group photo in local garb, while showing respect to where we are. The Taj Mahal is not to be rushed, but to be breathed in. We will stop for lunch on the way back to Jaipur.

The dance is done ostensibly for the Queen Mother, but it is meant to honour the whole royal family. And the king will sometimes choose out some of the dancers, who must all be virgins, unmarried, and childless, to become his new wives. Polygamy is traditional among the Swazi royal family. Those virgins who are chosen are given dominant position among the royal princesses.
