• Hidden Gems The Magic of Rajasthan’s Countryside

The Magic of Rajasthan's Countryside.

 

India’s most popular destination, and many visitors’ first exotic glimpse of the country, Rajasthan is alive with history, heritage, and legend. The inner roads of this state acquaint you with bustling towns and typical villages as well as local markets; ancient living temples, water reservoirs and sweeping agricultural lands that form a breathtaking contrast with the great Thar Desert. Drive through dried riverbeds, gravelly country roads, tracks ideal for riding and cycling and an endless stretch of shifting sands. A program that takes you into tribal villages, called ‘dhanis’, deep in the scrub country to experience community consciousness and conservation ideals. Or partake in friendly inclusive rituals like the opium ceremony sitting with village elders.
