Here the landscape varies from green and lush valleys to dry and moon-like ravines. The riders can observe a great variety of wildlife and birds. Besides it is also an expedition to the lesser visited, nevertheless worth seeing, historical towns of Chittorgarh and Bundi.

The riders will visit Chittorgarh; the former capital of Mewar and its most important fortress is a historically most significant and interesting place. Chittorgarh is a symbol of the valor and the chivalry of the Rajputs. It was captured three times in its history and every time the men rather died in the battlefield than surrender to the enemy. They donned yellow robes and rode out in order to die by the sword. The women inside committed jauhar, collective suicide, by burning themselves on a pyre.

On the second day Bussi Fort and its Wildlife Sanctuary can be visited. Bussi Village is famous for a special type of wooden handicraft. Further on the ride, in Menal is a striking and famous waterfall waiting for the riders. Besides they can visit a number of ancient temples from the Gupta period with exquisite stone carving. Before reaching Bundi the riders can visit the old temple complex of Bijolia. Once it was a group of 100 temples, but most of them were destroyed by the Moguls.

Finally the riders will reach the medieval town of Bundi. Visiting Bundi is like stepping back in time. It is a picturesque and captivating little town with surprisingly few tourists. The Rajput legacy is well preserved in the shape of the massive Fort, which is situated on top of a hill overlooking the town. Very attractive as well is the huge palace, which stands beneath it. Bundi is well known for its fine school of miniature painting.
