Rajasthan Tourism Holiday Packages

A land of regality, ostentatious forts and palaces, multitude of art forms and brimming with tradition and culture, Rajasthan is a fervent and grand holiday destination which has captured the fancy of travellers around the world. This state has a lot more to offer apart from its splendid structures and hospitality, something you can experience with our Rajasthan Tourism packages that take you to the famous places this ‘Land of Kings’ is blessed with. In terms of area, Rajasthan is the largest state in India. Owing to that, there is no dearth of places to visit when you are on your Rajasthan tourism trip. Start with visiting the splendid Neemrana Fort where you get to see the remnant and admire the architecture of the fort palace and also take part in flying fox (zip-lining) which is an enthralling affair.Next up is the small town of Alwar, which connects to Sariska reserve, and the renowned Bhangarh Fort, deemed one of the most haunted places in the world. Definitely not for the faint-hearted! Although tigers in Sariska are scarce, you can get up close with peacocks, nilgai and sambal deer here. Hanuman Temple, the Neelkantheswar Temple and Kankwari Fort are places you can visit while in Sariska.After that comes Jaipur which is admirably known as the Pink City. The name has stuck from the time of Maharaja Sawai Jai Singh II, who got the whole city painted in pink in 1853 for the visit of the Prince of Wales. There are many beguiling buildings to admire here. One of them is the well-preserved Nahargarh Fort, where you get panoramic views of the Pink City. Next, head to Amer Fort where you can take an elephant ride while gazing at the beautiful architecture of the 16th Century fort. A very intriguing yet less popular place here is the Abhaneri step well, where the meticulous step design is bound to leave you amazed. Last but not the least is the City Palace Jaipur that is an assortment of many structures and vividly reflects the rich history of the place. In the form of Keoladeo National Park, Jaipur has something for the bird lovers as well. The reserve boasts of over 200 species of birds and is recognised as a world heritage site. An important aspect of Rajasthan is its rich food and flavours. Start your quest for taste with kachori, mirchi pakodas, gatte ki sabzi, papad ki sabzi and give it a sweet twist with choorma and ghevar. Rajasthan is famous for camel rides and Jaisalmer is the place to enjoy one. Although a bit remote, Jaisalmer is known to attract visitors throughout the year owing largely to the offbeat nature of activities here. Take the desert safari of Thar Desert on a camel to know what a desert really looks and feels like. If you are in the mood for some adventure, hire a 4x4 SUV which can be taken to conquer the sand dunes of the desert. Also stay on the lookout for banjara settlements in and around the desert where you can enjoy an evening filled with Rajasthani folk music and dance performances. While in Jaisalmer, do not miss out on visiting the grand Patwon Ki Haveli which symbolises the architecture of the bygone era. And, if you need an alternate definition of magnificence, make sure to catch a glimpse of the Jaisalmer Fort at night where the breathtaking juxtaposition of the golden hues of the fort with the dark sky make for a mesmerising sight. Udaipur is the next place on the itinerary and is profoundly stunning in terms of the forts and palaces it houses. The Umaid Bhawan Palace is immense. No Rajasthan trip is complete without a visit to the Chittorgarh Fort, which is the largest fort in Rajasthan and is situated close to the Golden Quadrilateral near Udaipur.Jodhpur is another place one can’t afford to miss. It is the blue city since most of the houses in the old part are painted blue. Get atop the Mehrangarh Fort to confirm that for yourself. Pick up some local items at the Sadar Bazaar and do ensure that you see the traditional Kalbeliya dance.A quintessential part of exploring Rajasthan is paying a visit to the Pushkar Mela. It is unique in its own way. You get to see competitions like wrestling, turban and moustache displays, horse and camel races and dance performances. The fair is a fluent display of the colourful traditional dresses and cultural practices of the locals. Another common activity in Pushkar is kite flying that makes the sky look like a canvas of colours. If the sport interests you, then you cannot be in a better place as you get to witness fiercely competitive kite fights here.
