India Holi Festival Gay Tour Itinerary

Pre-Trip to Nepal
March 10 - 12, 2019
Read more!

Day 1 - Tuesday, March 12, 2019
Arrive in Hyderabad, India
India  gay tour - HyderabadArrive at Hyderabad International Airport. After clearing customs and immigrations formalities you will be met by a Zoom representative outside the customs gate who will escort you to your hotel.

Established in 1591 AD, Hyderabad has been the kingdom of the Nizams, avid patrons of culture and craft. Long been a global center for diamond and pearl trade, today Hyderabad is an important information technology hub of India. The city is truly the perfect blend of historic charm and modern brilliance.

At the hotel, a traditional Indian welcome of aart- tikka- garland will be accorded. Check-in at your hotel.

Evening:
Welcome Dinner and Cocktails at a surprise location

Accommodations: Taj Falaknuma Palace Hotel, Hyderabad, 5*

Meals Included: Welcome Dinner

 

Day 2 - Wednesday, March 13, 2019
Hyderabad
Breakfast at the hotel.

India gay tour - Golconda Fort, HyderabadThis morning visit Golconda Fort. This tour will trace the history of the Qutb Shahi dynasty which ruled Hyderabad between 1518 and 1687 AD. The narrative will include stories of the rulers of this dynasty with a special emphasis on the love story between Mohd Quli Qutb Shah and Bhagmati. You will hear the story of Aurangazeb’s long and frustrating siege of the Golconda Fort which ended in his narrow victory.

The Golconda Fort, originally built by the Kakatiya Rulers has amazingly advanced acoustics systems that were used for signaling approaching enemy as well as for detecting conspiracies being hatched in palace corners! The Fort also is unique in the use of the natural boulders (that date back to a billion years), distinctive of the Deccan plateau, as foundation stones for the structure. The Fort was once a walled city to a large population. It has some very interesting features; a 900 year old temple in close proximity to almost as old a mosque, reflective of the healthy intermingling of different cultures of those time, an old prison that was used to imprison a Ram devotee, who converted the space into a temple, carving images with his hands and composing songs that are sung even today, spaces that were naturally air-cooled, remnants of a fairly evolved water supply system.

The climb up the Fort would be a sometimes steep, sometimes easy climb of about 360 steps and has excellent views of the Qutb Shahi tombs just outside the Fort area, the Charminar in the distance and the rest of the city’s landscape.

India gay tour - Qutub Shahi Tombs, HyderabadContinue to the Qutub Shahi Tombs that are probably the most magnificent of the tombs in the city. Built by the Qutb Shahi rulers prior to their death, each ensured that their tomb is better than their ancestors! This intense competition of course resulted in a more than happy situation for us today when we are able to stare at awe at their magnificence. The elaborate architecture in the hammams (or bath) is reflective of the rituals that were followed before the burial of the kings. Walk around the complex where you feel dwarfed by the immense proportions and hear stories of the kings who ruled this region, the negotiations that they carried out with the invaders and the intrigues and politics that were such an integral part of those times!

Afternoon at leisure at the hotel - pool/ spa etc.

Optional:
Visit Salar Jung Museum that houses part of the huge collection of Salar Jung, one of the Nizam’s prime ministers, and his ancestors. A well-travelled man of wealth, he bought whatever took his fancy from both East and West including Indian jade, miniatures, furniture, lacquer-work, Mughal opaque glassware, fabrics, bronze, Buddhist and Hindu sculpture, manuscripts and weapons.

Accommodations: Taj Falaknuma Palace Hotel, Hyderabad, 5*

Day 3 - Thursday, March 14, 2019
Hyderabad
Breakfast at the hotel.

India gay tour - Charminar, HyderabadMorning put on your apron and get ready for an exciting Hyderabadi cooking session with the Executive Chef of the Palace.

This evening visit Paigah Tombs. During the Nizam’s rule, the family next in nobility to the rulers was the Paigah Family. The Paigahs were a family second in nobility only to the Nizam’s family. Apart from playing an important role in the politics of the region, they also left behind their marks in the palaces they built for themselves. Some of them have been converted into clubs, resorts and other important buildings. In the late 18th century and early 19th century, they also built some magnificent tombs. The Paigah tombs have a unique architectural style with a combination of Turkish, Mughal, Persian and Rajasthani style of architecture.

Later walk around Charminar area and the old city. No place can give you a glimpse of Hyderabadi life like the Charminar area can. It is a brilliant mosaic of history, culture, modernity, crafts, business and old world charm - a perfect slice of this city's life. Walk through Laad Bazar and get dazzled by the shiny lac bangles that Hyderabad is known for, take the by-lanes and meet the craftsmen who create ‘bling’, one at a time. Walk into the chaos of fluttering pigeons in the Mecca Masjid courtyard to the simplicity of the Nizam’s tombs.

This evening you will return to the hotel and proceed on a Heritage Tour of the Palace you are staying in - The Falaknuma Palace.

Accommodations: Taj Falaknuma Palace Hotel, Hyderabad, 5*

Meals Included: Buffet Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today's Jaipur is pink, visually described as the city shaded with the autumn colors of sunset. Although originally the walls were render set and pigmented the color of red sandstone, Jaipur's universal coat of pink only came in 1876 to coincide with the visit of the Prince of Wales (King Edward VII). Almost the entire city was given a coat of pink paint, thus giving it the name the ‘Pink City’.

Upon arrival an Zoom Vacations representative will meet you at Jaipur airport and transfer to your hotel Taj Rambagh Palace.

Afternoon at leisure at the hotel - pool/ spa etc.

India gay tour - Amber Fort light showIn the evening drive to Amber Fort to witness the sound & light show. The well-organized sound and light show here is a fascinating attraction of the Amber Fort, with its rocky walls provided with an energetic backdrop for the light- effects. Made exciting by repeating of the various stories and legends of the Rajput Kings attended by harmonious folk music. They tell you the story of Rajputs’ and explain and the attractive narration takes you through the memory lane of Amber, describing its traditions and the grand lifestyle of the royal family.

Later visit Amber Fort. Tour the chambers and hallways of the palace. Amber Fort is famous for the excellence of its design and decoration. Within the complex is Ganesh Pol, an imposing gateway painted with the images of the elephant-headed god, Ganesh.

Today, a visitor to Agra is caught up in a world of contrasting edifices of red sandstone and white marble, narrow lanes and quaint buggies, and that irresistible charm that this favourite city of the Mughals still retains. It is not surprising, that modern Agra still reflects its Mughal heritage most conspicuously.

Upon arrival a Zoom Vacations representative will meet you at Agra railway station and proceed to visit Agra Fort: An imposing structure with walls of red sandstone, almost two miles long and contains palaces, audience halls and mosques.
