As famous writer St. Augustine said: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.” So I wanted to make my life full of travel pages with unique and adventuring memories. As I hail from another state of India and living a totally bohemian life since my college days. I wanted to go for a royal Rajasthan tour, the land of forts, palaces, vibrant colors, and traditions. I heard stories of its royal hero, stories for fort and places and their related myths. I want to explore the Rajasthan by the eye of Bohemian person that is me. I decided to take a road trip which would be an exotic experience and decided to camp whenever I feel tired I get off my bags and make a camp at a nice and suitable place. As it is the largest state in India, atleast5-6 days require exploring its royal traditions and culture. November is the starting month of winter and makes the best time to travel in Rajasthan.
My first destination was Jaipur which taken about 4 to 5 hours from Delhi. Jaipur is spreading pink light cold breeze which heads up to Pushkar, Ajmer and ends up with Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, and Udaipur. Jaipur is famously known as Pinkcity because it has pink-tinted walls which symbolize the hospitality and calmness of its people. The main key of attractions is Jal Mahal, Amber Palace, Nahargarh fort and Jantar Mantar and the Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Jantar Mantar and Govinddevji Ka Mandir which are situated in the same road just walking distance apart to each other. It will take at least one and a half days to cover all these mesmerizing picturesque locations. After knowing Jaipur’s culture it’s time to head up to Pushkar, Ajmer, and the journey takes 2-3 hours. Ajmer City knows for its pilgrim center Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Dargah where every year number of pilgrims pays their prayer. 12 kilometer apart from Ajmer, Pushkar is located which is the most colorful town in the Rajasthan. Fair and festivals in October and November are the main key attraction for alluring tourists from all around the globe. Numbers of Sadhus, hippies and, bohemian’s lifestyle people have their stay in this town. The city is a unique destination with worth to get lifetime treasure with you.
Now it’s time to heading up to Jodhpur; the stunning city with beautiful architectural palace and forts. The city is also known as Sun City and it is painted with turquoise blue. Jodhpur’s main attractions are Mehrangarh Fort, Umaid Bhavan Palace, and Sardar Samand Lake and Palace. For exploring the turquoise city you need to spend 1 day to know the in-depth history of its Rajputana royal hero and Marwar culture. I decided to relax at night in the Jodhpur so I made a camp in the sand dunes in the way of Jaisalmer because it is highly needed when you are on a long journey. In the morning I started the journey to Jaisalmer for adventuring trip to sand dunes and exploring Golden fort, Gangaur Mata, Pawan Ki Haveli, and Nathmal Ji Ki Haveli. The Thar Desert welcomes you in the city Jaisalmer where the orange land of sand dunes left you spellbound. I took a ride on a camel; this ride was magical and breathtaking because as camel walk on the steep sand dunes. It seems like you are walking on the bumpy roads with bumpy seat.
After spending a night in the sand dunes, I started my morning with light breakfast and getting myself the way Udaipur is a great destination for having a great palette of the romantic kaleidoscope in Rajasthan with Lakes and number of beautiful places. Udaipur’s Pichola Lake has a great panoramic view of the City Palace, Jag Mandir, and Lake Palace. The Fateh Sagar Lake, Sahelion Ki Bari, Sajjangarh Fort, Haldi ghati Museum and Doodh Talai are other alluring points.
Exploring these enchanting and royal cities is the lifetime experience and mesmerizing memories. This was my royal Rajasthan tour via road which still leaves me spellbound. Once in a lifetime have this experience.
