The Plan

Day

You'll meet your fellow Beats Travelers in Delhi. With its diverse religious temples, architectural sites and bustling locals, Delhi is a real introduction to the magic of India. Then, you'll hit the road and head for the first stop on your Golden Beats tour: Agra and the famous Taj Mahal. There's much to be said for the off-the-beaten-track approach, but you cannot visit India without experiencing the Taj Mahal. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, you'll see why seven million people journey here each year to see this magnificent marble building, constructed by the Emperor for his wife.

Day

You'll rise bright and early to make your way to the Taj Mahal. Afterwards, you'll head to Jaipur. Known as the Pink City, Jaipur holds a spectacular history that dates back to the 17th century when it was ruled by the Royal family. The bustle on the streets, the passing camels, the amazing architecture—this colonial city is a must-see in India. After hitting the colorful bazaars, boutique markets and shops, you'll go out for a group dinner at a local Rajasthan restaurant.

Day

You'll start the day with an early visit to the magnificent Amber Fort. Located high on a hilltop on the outskirts of Jaipur, this palace has elephants roaming its grounds and magnificent views—it's definitely one of the most Instagrammable locations on the itinerary. In the late afternoon, you'll head to Chowki Dani, a village-themed restaurant that captures the heart and spirit of Jaipur.

Day

It’s festival time, and you know what that means: three nights of partying in a 17th-century palace! Magnetic Fields will be sure to set the bar high for any future festivals you attend. This dreamy audiovisual experience offers the freshest Indian sounds, exciting underground international stars, and an amazing cultural program of local legends. You'll wake up with your fellow Beats Travelers each morning, step out of your modern Bedouin tent and stare out into the vast desert beauty of India.

Day

You'll say goodbye to Alsisar and Magnetic Fields and head to Pushkar for a bit of R & R. Known for being one of the holiest places in India, Pushkar is a picturesque town full of amazing stories and religious history. After you arrive, you'll enjoy a group dinner and a chill night with your Beats Travel friends after a wild three days at the festival.

Day

You'll spend the day exploring Pushkar. You can check out the religious town and relax at the lake or grab some great bargains at the cheap bazaars—the choice is yours. For early risers looking for a magnificent morning view, the town of Pushkar has plenty of sights to see, including the Savatri temple.

Day

You'll hit the road in the morning and head back to Delhi. Beats Travel never leaves without a bang, so after checking into your accommodation you'll go for a last traditional Indian dinner before heading to the nightlife central of Delhi Haus Kha Village for a late night boogie.

Day

Time to say goodbye to your Beats Travel friends and head home—or onto the next leg of your Indian journey!
