Your Business class is no Match to this Train Journey !

Feb 25, 2019

The country known for its largest rail network of any single country in the world, India, has some real beautiful cities in its possession. The golden triangle attractions of the country, beginning from the capital city Delhi, heading towards other hotspot cities, include in them, the art and textile hub Jaipur and the magical fort city Jaisalmer. Each city has its own brilliance in culture and tradition and is a definite watch for any traveller of India/North India.

For someone who wants to get an enthralling experience of slippery dunes, unrelenting desserts and all smooth sands in India, no place is better than the train route between Jaipur and Jaisalmer and this is no exaggeration by the reviews travelers across these places drop. 

The view of sand dunes in all shapes and sizes through the window is a unique experience we may not get anywhere else in the world. Hot and yummy Aloo mirchi bada in the middle-way pokhran station is sure to wake up your taste buds.

When the train users explicitly quote the toilet maintenance is perfect, it’s not something to be left unappreciated in a highly populated country like India. The train station at Jaisalmer is given the tag “very clean” and the carvings on the station walls have always attracted the passers by. Night journey makes the twelve hour journey easily manageable for even those who don’t prefer long train journeys; but then you may miss to note the serenity of the clean rail route in dark!

The list of magnificent palaces in Jaipur which you should get a glimpse of is just here!

The three hill forts constructed by the ancient clan of rulers of the Pink city, red sand stone and marble made Amber palace, Rajasthani Mughal European architecture come together in the gorgeous city palace, the grand Rambagh palace, the tourist famous Rajmahal palace and Samode palace, stylishly decorated Harimahal palace, the five storey Hawa mahal, the romantic Jal mahal.

From here to the splendid Jaisalmer, train journey is the most preferred one owing to the wonderful landscape all through the trip.

The elegance of dramatic changes in the landscape across the train route is the top most attraction for the journey. Barren desert, just as seen in books, is a huge reality here. Not just the typical golden sand and non-tree stretches, one can get a view of thick woods, mud houses and lush green areas too when lucky for the specific season. 

Gigantic sacred wild camels in the desert is the typical selling point of this route as is for the state of Rajasthan too. The series of highly unique structures composed of Sam Sand Dunes, Patwon Ki Haveli, Gadi Sagar Lake, Jantar Mantar, Chokhi Dhani, along with UNESCO certified Heritage sites like Amer Fort and Jaisalmer fort is the unbeatable feature this route possesses, which no other trip by any other mode can give one.

Good enough for luxury trips? The best deal for you is the Palace of Wheels,with its classy cabins, exclusive wallpapers, top class bar, professional care and hospitality, and mini cultural exhibition with magnificent arts and handicraft displays in the coaches. Longingness to travel back to the era of kings, kingdoms and royal phase of time, is completely served by this current age kingdom on wheels, gifted to us by the World Heritage Site.
