After breakfast at the hotel departure for Udaipur. Today we cross the Aravali, the most famous mountain range of Rajasthan, rich in flora and fauna and minerals, totally change the geography of the territory after Aravali, is an area that receives more monsoon rains so the area is more cultivated, green with trees more giant than the trees in the desert area.

Fantastic palaces, temples, havelis and countless narrow, winding and timeless streets add human counterpoint to the city's natural charm. For the visitor there is the tranquility of the boat trips on the lake, the bustle and color of the ancient bazaars, a lively art scene, the characteristic atmosphere of the old world of its best hotels, endless tempting shops and some beautiful countryside to explore on wheels, on foot or on horseback.
