Jaipur — 3 nights

Pink City

Known as the "Pink City" because of the color of the stone used for many of its notable structures, Jaipur draws visitors with its chaotic street life and a slew of colorful bazaars selling everything from handmade pottery to tie-dye scarves.
Explore hidden gems such as EleSafari and The Rustic Paths. Spend the 2nd (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Amber Palace, see the sky in a new way at Jantar Mantar - Jaipur, don't miss a visit to Hawa Mahal - Palace of Wind, and get engrossed in the history at City Palace of Jaipur.

For ratings, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Jaipur trip planner.

Washington DC, USA to Jaipur is an approximately 24-hour flight. You'll lose 10.5 hours traveling from Washington DC to Jaipur due to the time zone difference. In September, Jaipur is a bit warmer than Washington DC - with highs of 95°F and lows of 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) to allow enough time to fly to Leh.

There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Shanti Stupa, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, examine the collection at Old Raku House, and steep yourself in history at Gurudwara Shri Datun Sahib Ji.

It may very well be fair to call India "incredible," given its mind-boggling diversity of landscapes, climates, cultures, and languages. The world's largest democracy, and second only to China in terms of population, India contains majestic peaks dusted with glistening snow, sun-drenched beaches, ancient hand-carved temples, and sprawling cities jam-packed with people, vehicles, and animals. Many tour India during the country's devotional festivals, which range from immense parades that convert cities into giant performance stages, to simple farming fairs dedicated to relatively obscure local deities. Whenever you choose to vacation in India, make sure you see some of the country's World Heritage Sites, which include the legendary Taj Mahal and Chilika Lake, the planet's second-largest lagoon.
