Itineray on july with 2 boys 6 and 18 years old

Hi,

We came from Jakarta, and plan to be in india for vacation in july 12 to 25, 2010. Our flight arrive and departure from banglore. It is our first trip to India want to see and go to agra, jaipur, jaisalmer (camel ride/safari) and jodphur, New Delhi. The other place like Udaipur, and my sore in banglore, it will be good if we can make it in this trip. My sons not really interest with the tample or palace, so I thought we just see the tample that we have to see and interisting for kids or the heritage. Taj Mahal is mandatory and one fort in Jaipur that we can ride an elephant is will be interesting for all of us also Jaisalmer that the kid can have a chance for camel ride/safari (is it possible with the very hot temperature at july?)

Could you please help make an itinerary for us, we don't like to spend so many hours in the road. If that place is reachable by flight or by train that no more than 6 hours it is really great.

Thank you so much for your advice and apoligize if my english is not really good.

To and From Rajasthan\north India ex-Bangalore best travel by air domestic flights info www.cleartrip.com

one can fly Bangalore-Mumbai-Udaipur(Rajasthan) and travel further as

Udaipur-Ranakpur-Jodhpur-Osian-Pushkar\khimsar-Jaipur-Agra-Delhi-Bangalore.

Udaipur-Ranakpur-Jodhpur must do by road as there are no train connections, and landscape is nice best to stop overnight at Ranakpur.

Jodhpur-osian by jeep for desert

surrounding osian is an alternate for desert camel trek as off the beaten trek destination as well as to cut the distance of traveling all the way to Jaisalmer.

Osian-Pushkar\khimsar-Jaipur can be done by car too.

weatherwise july is hot but this is duration of mansoon though rain fall records in desert areas are couple of hrs out of week.

outing \desert camel treks are best recommended are either before noon or after noon to escape the great desert heat.

Cheers.

Could you please advice is it in all of wildlife /sanctuary closed during rainy season, such as Keoladeo Natinal park at Bhatatapur and Kumbalagarh port ? If it is not, is it worthed trip to see both of that wildlife trip, or just choose one and use it in other destination?

Keoladeo National Park Bharatpur remains open throughout the year but the best time is from October throught to March.

However there are always Deer Jackals Wildcats Porcupines and a array of local birds.

Of cousre luck is a factor.

I'm not sure about the park at Kumbhalgarh, but in all honesty though it's a nice drive, through some stunning scenery the animals are very very shy, we saw nothing of note on our 4 hour trip.

Kumbhalgar and surrounds in just magical though, DO visit!!!!!!

Here's some photos I took recently

CH - Fantastic photos of the water-wheel.

Reminds me of a Sanskrit poem I learnt about how fortune can be fickle. Roughly translated, the poem says:

Oh you fool,

Why do you chase Lakshmi

She is restless

Doesn't stay long in one place

Behold this water-wheel

The empty bucket becomes full

And the full one empty.

For those who do not know, Lakshmi is the Goddess of Wealth.

The Sanksrit word for water wheel is ghatanjalayantrachakra :) quite a mouthful. It translates roughly as pot-water-machine-wheel :)
