What have you visited before? The big cities are Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Udaipur. Apart from this there are many smaller places which are in between these cities. See this map: http://goo.gl/maps/ERNXC You can do 3 cities in your 6night/7 day trip. First look at flight connections - I think from Bangalore you will get non-stop flight to Jaipur. From Udaipur and Jodhpur you can get flights via Delhi/Mumbai.

Rajasthan is a perfect host putting forth all the tastes to suit everyone's fancy. After your visit you would realize the awesomeness it offers to and the charm it bestows on its guests. I would say you could consider some of the following destinations as part of your plan. I can help you with an itinerary once you settle down on your places.

Camel Ride in Deep Desert - Sam near Jaiselmer

This is not the ride that you get on the sea shore beaches or make shift sand clusters at tourist spots. This is actually deep into the Thar Desert where you wont find any habitation for miles and could see sand dunes shifting their position if you are in right season.

More details and trip experience is available on my blog at expressions-kt.in/2011/05/tour-travel-jaisel…

Humbling the Heights - Hill-station in Desert - Mount Abu

One of the most beautiful hill destinations amidst the arid state of Rajasthan, Mount Abu is absolutely perfect vacation spot. The water streams enroute from Abu Road (during monsoons), the clouds at the eye level and scenic beauty are only some of the perks this place offers.

More details and trip experience is available on my blog at expressions-kt.in/2012/02/tour-travel-mount-…

The Urbane Story - Capital of State - The Pink City Jaipur

The capital city of the state, a metropolitan is true sense offering the hurriedness of a modern city and grandeur of historic royalty - all combined in a single package. Trip experience is available on my blog at -http://www.expressions-kt.in/2011/05/tour-travel-jaipur-pink-city.html

Safari at Tal Chhapar Sanctuary near Bikaner

A beautiful wild life sanctuary protecting the endangered black bucks and chinkara - yeah the ones which got a Bollywood actor behind bars and other to enjoy dates in courts - in their natural habitat. All this amidst the scorching heat of the Thar Desert is this deer reserve - Tal Chhapar Sanctuary !!

More details and trip experience is available on my blog at expressions-kt.in/2014/07/black-buck-and-end…

The Sun City - Jodhpur

A relatively sparsely populated city near western boarders of the state, Jodhpur is nicknamed based on the colour of local stone. Standing on top of the city fort, one can imagine the aptness of the nickname when one looks at the spread of the city around. Trip experience is available on my blog at -http://www.expressions-kt.in/2011/05/tour-travel-jodhpur-sun-city.html

Beisdes, Bikaner, Udaipur and Pushkar are destinations loved by tourists. If you are a wild life fan, Ranthambore may interest you too.
