Prepare yourself for mighty cities, verdant jungles teeming with flora and fauna, ancient ruins, luxurious palace hotels, and chic converted boutique accommodation, previously the fortified homes of Thakurs (landed gentry). Although Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur are frequented for a reason, there is also much to be seen away from the cities. Take time to visit places in Rajasthan that are off the beaten track: Bundi and rural destinations such as Chhatra Sagar, Ramathra Fort, Shahpura and Bhainsrorgarh. Here, you’ll get a glimpse of India’s romantic side.
In the sprawling Rajasthan countryside, you can greet villagers, interact with desert tribes and experience a way of life that defies 21st-century influence. Throughout Rajasthan, brightly coloured saris adorned by the village women punctuate otherwise sparse landscapes. Experience village markets, vibrant local fairs and festivals, see the occasional wedding: Indians will always extend a warm welcome. In addition to wildlife and tiger safaris, you’ll find leopard safaris at Bhenswara and Jawai, camel safaris in the Thar Desert, and horse safaris. As well, you can try an off-road Jeep safari in Jodhpur and enjoy UNESCO World Heritage site treks.
