Rajasthan

An epitome of everything Rajasthani, from every postcard you've probably ever seen, the spectacular sandstone royal desert town of Jaisalmer is charming and mysterious all at the same time. Self-explanatory as a 'golden city', Jaisalmer's fort is perched on a yellow sandstone ridge, keeping a watchful eye over the ever-spreading town beyond its walls. Step into the fort for a vision of medieval prosperity that meets the 21st century in the thriving bustling township within. Havelis, Jain temples, curio shops, hotels and restaurants lie beside each other on cobbled narrow alleyways. Take a walk through the streets of old Jaisalmer for glimpses into the lives of locals, cooking or hard at work in skilled craftwork, art and sculpture. There's something new around every corner here in Jaisalmer, from spicy food to handicrafts, so expect your walk to take longer than the distance warrants as you stop for a much-needed break at one of the rooftop cafes.

Kumbhalgarh - Ranakpur Hike - The world's second longest fortified wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an 86-kilometre drive away from Udaipur. Clearly not Chinese, The Kumbhalgarh fort and its walls make a good 38-kilometre long trek through undulating terrain.

Trek from Amer - Kuntalgarh Fort - Head over to Amer Fort after breakfast, a mere 11 kilometres away from Jaipur, through ancient cobbled pathways towards the fascinating serpentine stairs that lead up to the fort. Built on separate levels, step out onto each courtyard for amazing views of the Aravallis beyond.

Bishnoi Village - Ardent nature lovers and fierce protectors of animals, the Bishnoi tribe of Rajasthan has earned a reputation for itself. So fierce is their love for the nature legend has it that 363 villagers lost their lives when they offered their heads for every tree the king wanted to cut here. The Maharaja ultimately ordered that no trees would be felled near Bishnoi villages and neither would animals be hunted there.

un[travelled] to Rajasthan

leftimgWOW. What a Fantastic trip I had with un[travel]. The company went above and beyond to create a wonderful three-week itinerary for me. Ina Sharma, my travel consultant, was absolutely incredible and if I needed anything at any time of the day or evening, she was always there for me. I was worried about using the company at first, as I live in the United States, and had never used an Indian travel company before. As soon as my plane landed in New Delhi and I was greeted in the airport by Ina and her team, I knew that I was going to have an incredible experience. I plan on returning to India this summer for another long trip and will use NO other company than un[travel]. Thank you, thank you, thank you for making my trip so incredibly amazing!!!rightimg

Best time to visit November to March

Late October to early March is the best time to visit Rajasthan. In these months you see the temperatures dropping and can enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Winters set in by late November and stay on till February. The sun feels good here during these months and one can enjoy the outdoors to the fullest.

Summers start from April and last till June. These months are hot but places like Mount Abu and Kumbhalgarh have lower temperatures.

Monsoons bring the temperature down and most of the areas, barring the desert region, see a lot of green. The beauty of overcast skies in Rajasthan are unmatched.
