Moderate
A good level of fitness is important for this trip. You must be comfortable walking on uneven terrain and irregular paving for at least 2-3 hours at a stretch and climbing stairs. In most places access to temples and forts is only on foot with some steep ascents. Shoes must be removed to enter temples; we suggest wearing appropriate socks.

We are staying in a mix of four star plus Western style hotels for most of this trip. We stay for one night at a very comfortable heritage hotel in Narlai. All rooms have private facilities. Most hotels have swimming pools. Please note that not all hotels have elevators.

During this tour
We will be travelling in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle driven by a professional driver. While roads are mostly paved except on rural back roads, there are few divided highways. The traffic is much slower with camel carts, and heavily laden vehicles as part of the mix. Therefore, we cannot expect to cover distances as quickly as we might in North America. Some of the travel days will be somewhat long, but we will have regular stops along the way.
