Heritage on Wheels Train

Heritage on WheelsA journey by train brings back the romance of travel, it reminds one of the time of sepia toned photographs and the now-crumbly yellowed pages of diaries written a long time ago, it takes one back to a time when trains were the chief mode of travel and an integral part of epic adventures . And there is no better way to see Rajasthan than by rail especially since the most fascinating trains have been prepared with all the opulence and luxuries befitting kings and queens. The Heritage on Wheels offers a truly priceless experience in the land of the Maharajas.

Traversing through the more unexplored and exotic destinations of Rajasthan it conveniently connects Jaipur, Shekhawati and Bikaner. Since it is not a commercial route there are no chances of delay. The journey offers a glimpse of the countryside that most visitors do not get to experience, as your train chugs and wheezes its way into the desert heartland you'll be lulled into a relaxed state by its rhythmic motion, outside the window the countryside will show a spread of dunes and fields, silhouettes of camels, children flying kits, rows of tall stately women carrying terecotta pots filled with water on their heads, groups of men sitting under the acacia and puffing on biris, the leaf wrapped smokes common in India. This Heritage on Wheels luxury train will take you into the heart of the Thar desert a heretofore remote territory, classic in its beauty and unspoilt tradition.

Tailormade Your Tour



This four day trip has an extremely well planned itinerary. The Heritage on Wheels train journey begins at Jaipur, where the guests board the train. After a warm welcome guests are shown around the saloons and the restaurants and treated to a sumptuous dinner while the train is already on route to Bikaner. Next morning after a regal breakfast, a sightseeing trip takes the guests in a comfortable airconditioned vehicle to the to the red and pink sandstone fort. Then its back to the train to journey onwards stopping at Haat and then Gajner. Lunch is followed by a Camel Safari and after all the excitement a high tea at the Lal Garh Palace helps one unwind and swap stories. Nightfall brings one back to the luxurious comforts of the heritage for another lip smacking dinner. The next day the train traverses through the regions of Shekhawati. Tal Chappar, Mandawa and Nawalgarh are the most popular, here every street, house and wall has the stamp of an artist's imagination in paint. Frescoes and murals decorate the walls, on these walls is a powerful and silent narration of history. Detailed cenotaphs and havelis make this region an architectural marvel. Abundant in art Shekhawati is also known as the 'open art gallery' of Rajasthan and is a must-see for art afficionadoes. The journey culminates on the fourth day when the Heritage brings you back to the Jaipur.

The heritage on wheels train is every bit as luxurious as its name suggests, each of its 14 gleaming carriages has been furnished keeping in mind the opulent tastes of royalty, heritage ambience and decor. On each trip it can accomodate 104 people, each of its saloons can accomodate eight guests in four bedrooms with two bathrooms on sharing basis. The two restaurants - Maharaja and Maharani respectively, have opulently draped curtains, exquisitely crafted lights and table settings that would do any five star restaurant proud. Here chefs serve up a choice of delectable India, Continental and even Chinese cuisines. The relaxing and inviting ambience of the well stocked bar cum lounge is where you could burrow in a book, write a record of all that you saw or converse with co-passangers. An extremely amicable and highly capable staff looks after and caters to your every whim and fancy. In the heritage you get to be the maharaja who travelled with all the style, grandeur and luxury befitting his royal stature.
