  • Day 05 – WednesdayLittle Rann of Kutch

    Breakfast at the first blush of dawn today as the Deccan Odyssey pulls into the Viramgam Station where you will disembark to drive to a stop over point and transfer to jeeps for a safari into the deceptively named Little Rann of Kutch.

    The Rann is a seasonal salt marsh, the largest in the world at over 7500 sq. km, a saline desert where the dry air whips your face, mirages abound and parched earth unfolds as far as the eye can see. During the monsoons, these arid flatlands fill with water creating a still, salty sea.

    Explore the Rann on your jeep safari; the Wild Ass Sanctuary here is one of the few places to spot the ghudkar, or Indian wild ass. Other species here include the desert fox, jungle cat, jackal and several birds. Since there is virtually no vegetation for animals to hide behind, they are easy to spot while driving around.

    After your visit to the sanctuary, lunch will be at the Rann Riders Resort with time to relax and refresh yourselves. Enjoy the regional specialties of the Maliks of Rann, and delicious Gujarati fare in this charming resort surrounded by the desert.
    Spend some time walking around and meeting the other species of the lodge which include the unique to the region Marwari and Kathiawari horses.

    Later, drive out for a village safari to meet the varied communities that call the Rann their home. You will find the Agarias, salt-panners, hard at work drying out the salt. Visit the homes of the Rabari tribe and experience their way of life. Another interesting aspect to look out for is the beaded bangles made by the Mirs of Dasada. Continue to a local school where you will be greeted by enthusiastic children eager to share information about themselves and learn about your part of the world.

    Having taken in your share of this great white vastness, return to the Deccan Odyssey for dinner and head for Patan.

  • Day 06 – ThursdayModhera - Patan

    This morning the Deccan Odyssey rolls into Patan, the 8th century fortified town, the capital of Gujarat in medieval times.

    Breakfast over, disembark and drive to the sun temple at Modhera. This grand, awe-inspiring 11th century sandstone monument was built by the Solanki dynasty and is dedicated to the sun god. The complex is full of elaborate carvings and the resident priest enjoys explaining the legends they depict. A step tank in front of the temple has 108 shrines that lead down to the water.

    After visiting the sun temple, drive to Patan to visit the lovely 11th century step well called Rani ki Vav, a fine example of subterranean well architecture. Walk down into the depths of this extravagant step well, one of the biggest in Gujarat, passing hundreds of delicate carvings and statues of Parvati, Shiva, Vishnu and other gods etched into its side walls. It is evident that this well was constructed not just to store water but was also a site for worship and community gatherings.
    Thereafter, visit Patola house, the centre of the Salvi family's traditional craft, the creating of exquisite silk Patola sarees. Weavers since the 12th century, the Salvi's have enjoyed the patronage of the royalty of Gujarat as the sarees created by them have gained the reputation of works of art.

    Having visited Patola house, drive back to the Deccan Odyssey for lunch on board.

    The afternoon is at leisure as you proceed towards Nashik.

    In the evening watch the tapestry of rural India unfold as you sip a sun downer before dinner.

    Disembark post lunch and drive to the Grover Zampa vineyards for an exclusive tour of one of the finest Indian wine producing facilities. Walk through vines laden with Chenin, Chardonnay and Shiraz grapes. Be taken through the age old 'methode traditionnelle' used to make one of the best known brands of sparkling wines in India. Allow the sommelier to acquaint your taste buds with their finest creations of white, red, rose and sparkling wines and experiment pairing them with your meal at the vineyards.

    In the evening, head for a walk along the Godavari Ghats; observe the various Hindu rituals related to birth, death and initiation being performed here.
