Travel impressions India

itinerary of our tour October 2000 - from Delhi to Mumbai (Bombay)


Our trip through India started in Delhi. From there we went by plain on an excursion  to Varanasi (Benares) (800 km), the most important place of pilgrimage in Hinduism. After returning to Delhi we started our long tour through the country to Udaipur by car. The first break was Agra with the Red Fort and the famous Taj Mahal (203 km). After that we left the state of Uttar Pradesh and went to Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan (232 km). On the road we visited  Fathepur Sikri, the "left city" and the national park Bharatpur. Close to Jaipur is the Amber Fort, which we climbed by elephant. On our way to Jodhpur with the  majestic and most impressive Mehrangarh Fort (331 km) we went on a small excursion to Pushkar,  another place of pilgrimage for Hindus. Coming from Jodhpur we passed the Thar desert in the direction of Udaipur. On the road, close to Udaipur, we visited the magnificent Jain-Temple in Ranakpur, which is in any case a "must". Finally we reached the fairytale "city of lakes", Udaipur (266 km).  From there we went by plain to Mumbai (Bombay) (800 km)  and by train to Pune (Poona) (163 km), which is also known as the cultural capital of Maharashtra. Finally we left India from Mumbai.
