Strength & Stability in Jaipur
A Rajput bastion, the seat of royalty, Jaipur’s palaces and fortresses stand as a proud testimonial of its status as a stronghold of power. This is where the true mettle of courage and valour was tested in many a battle that would shape the history of ancient Rajasthan. Jaipur is known across the world for its beautiful
monuments, historic havelis, bustling bazaars, and gorgeous palaces. As we ground ourselves in Jaipur to embark on our visit through India, it’s breathtaking beauty sets the pace for the rest of our journey.
Day 3 & 4
Movement & Mudras in Ajabgarh
Leave behind the historic precinct of Jaipur to head out into the Rajasthani wilderness. Ajabgarh is a tranquil hideaway, nestled at the base of the Aravalli mountain range. The rugged landscape is amplified by an incredible sense of space and serenity. Wind and light filter through the stark beauty of red rock, hill slopes and the forest that evoke the energy of nature. As you drive across the countryside, vestiges of a distant past dot the landscape. Flashes of colour catch your eye as the locals head home from a day in the fields, dressed in traditional garb, their silver jewelry glinting in the sun.
Day 5 & 6
Nutrition & Nature in Shahpura
As you wind your way through the Rajasthani countryside, the landscape suddenly opens up to a world of pristine wetlands and beautiful water bodies as far as the eye can see. Welcome to Shahpura, a secret oasis tucked away at the foot of the folds of the Aravalli mountain range. Shahpura’s story is one of sustainability. Hundreds of years ago, the rulers of Shahpura constructed a series of lakes, canals, and water bodies to harvest rain water in a region that was completely dry. Today, not only do Shahpura’s farms and orchards flourish, the area has turned into a gorgeous wetland for a vast variety of flora and fauna.
Shahpurabagh is the former summer palace of the Shahpura royal family. Today, it continues to be owned by them and is a running country estate which has been turned into a luxury boutique hotel, which has a strong focus on sustainability and wellbeing. While we are in Shahpura, we will stay with the descendants of the royal family at their private estate, who continue to uphold a tradition of sustainability and social responsibility.
The property not only has its own fields and orchards right on the estate, but is also home to a vast tract of woodland and wetland, as well as one of the few temperature controlled pools in Rajasthan.

It is a spiritual place, which three major world religions –Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism – acknowledge as holy. Lord Shiva’s
worshippers hold Varanasi in supreme regard, because this is the place on earth from where Shiva rose as a fire-bolt and ascended into the
sky. Even today, the world’s oldest living city continues to inspire and awe all those who come here.
