Known as the land of kings, Rajasthan is drenched into glorious history and attracts tourists from all around the world. Here's your itinerary for a 9 day Rajasthan trip covering all the major historic forts and temples. Start your trip from Rajasthan's capital Jaipur which is well connected to Kolkata by air and rail.

Day 1 and 2

Once in Jaipur, it will be best to buy a composite ticket for Amber Fort, Jantar-Mantar, Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall (Central Museum), Nahargarh Fortwhich is valid for 2 days. Also, do not miss attractions in Jaipur such as Galtaji Temple and Birla Mandir.

While on a tour of Jaipur, you have to have the popular Pyaaz Kachori and yummy Lassi at the Lassiwala. You can also try Sky Waltz Balloon Safari at Namrata House if you are an adventurous type. You can choose any option out of the many places to stay in Jaipur.

Day 3 and 4

On the third day, you can head for Udaipur (417 km away from Jaipur). Now, essentially you are going to stay in Udaipur for only a day. In that one day, try visiting as many places; some of the interesting ones are City Palace and lakes such as Pichola and Fateh Sagar. You can try boating at Fatehpur Sagar Lake while you are there. Recently started Karni Mata Ropeway is also an interesting thing to do as it give you an aerial view of the bright city with an adrenaline rush.

On the next day, you can head for a day tour to Ranakpur and Kumbhalgarh. Ranakpur is around 91 km away from Udaipur and then Kumbhalgarh is around 30 km away from there. Do not miss visiting the temples in Ranakpur which are a delight for any traveller. When in Kumbhalgarh, the Kumbhalgarh Fort will welcome you with open arms with an amazing architectural grandeur at display.

Day 5 and 6

From Udaipur, you head to Rajasthan's only hill station, Mount Abu. Cradling the famous Nakki Lake, these hillocks are also home to the famous Dilwara Temples.

The lush greenery, sparkling water bodies and delightful wildlife makes for a refreshing change of scenery from most other parts of Rajasthan. It's a good idea to stay in Mount Abu for two days to enjoy all the sightseeing.

Day 7 and 8

From Mount Abu, you can head to Rlajasthan's biggest city, Jodhpur, where you can lose your heart to gorgeous monuments like the Mehrangarh Fort and Jaswant Thada.

Jodhpur is a shoppers paradise, and you have the opportunity to pick up beautiful bangles, camel leather goods and semi precious jewellery from here.

Jodhpur is also well connected to Kolkata by direct flights and trains, and you can make your journey home comfortably. Hope this helps!
