The Palace on Wheels luxury tourist train, also known as the pride of Rajasthan tourism, will soon begin operating in iconic Rajasthan cities. The Tourism Development Corporation of the state has decided to run the first trip of this train on October 12. On September 28, a trial run will be conducted to test all of the train's amenities and security features.

Other officials, including the technical team and RTDC president Dharmendra Rathod, are expected to be present during the train's trial run.

Cabinet approved the operation of Royal Railway

Chairman Dharmendra Rathod said, “RTDC is committed to running Palace on Wheels on time in this tourist season. For this, all the issues have been resolved. After implementing the ‘Bharat Gaurav Train Policy’ on behalf of the Ministry of Railways, the Cabinet has approved the operation of the Royal Railway on the 4M model under the ownership of the Royal Rail with RTDC, ensuring fixed revenue on the new pattern.”

This train's one-night fare per person is fixed at Rs 55,000. During the off-season, however, tickets can be purchased for as little as Rs 43,000. The maximum fare is Rs 1.54 lakh (for at least three days of travel), which includes accommodation and food. Meanwhile, services such as laundry and spa treatments, as well as beverages such as wine and beer, will be charged separately. Travel is free for children under the age of five, and half the fare is charged for children aged five to ten.

Scheduled day every Wednesday

This award-winning train will depart Delhi on its scheduled day every Wednesday and travel to Rajasthani cities such as Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, and Udaipur, as well as the state's wildlife-rich Ranthambore National Park and the world-famous Bharatpur bird sanctuary at Bharatpur. The journey will also take you to Agra, a world-famous symbol of love and romance, before returning to New Delhi.

Needless to say, the train coaches are as luxurious as any 5-star hotel room. It has rooms ranging from basic to deluxe. The coaches on this train highlight the specialties of Rajasthan's various states. For example, the Jodhpur compartment contains photographs and paintings of the blue city's major tourist and heritage sites.
