Rajasthan is a dignified and picturesque state with several layers of traditional and cultural importance.
It remains in the northwest of India, and it abuts Pakistan from the West. It involves kings and is full of temples, forts, palaces, and step-wells, among many unexpected delights.
I commenced my Rajasthani experience in the city of Jaipur, the center of the northwestern Indian state. It is the most extremely populated city in Rajasthan and investigating it is quite an experience. The host was competent and convenient, and the chai was immense!
A delicious deep-fried savory pastry pleasure, and I attended various other towns and cities in Rajasthan, consuming a total of 6 weeks there using subways and limousines to travel my way encompassing.
I feasted fresh, flavorsome vegetarian food in the Laughing Buddha Cafe and met many lovely people there. I also traveled to other magical places like Bundi, where Kipling found his inspiration for the Jungle Book. Bundi is home to the most significant amount of step-wells of any city in India. I had a memorable tour of the encircling area with Kukki-G journeys on the reverse of his motorbike. I had the chance to visit most of these places for at least 4 or 5 days and visited Jodphur, Jaisalmer, Mt. Abu, and the enchanting Udaipur. I stayed in Junkyard Hostel in Udaipur and would extremely suggest it to those progressing individuals.
Jaisalmer was fun, if a bit inconvenient, to go to. As it is the latest town before the Pakistan boundary and is out in the Thar Desert, the only train that goes there appears in the middle of the night, which can be scary and probably risky. So, if possible, arrange in advance to be picked up at the train station when you arrive.
Above all, welcome your intuition and follow your gut feeling despite being densely populated and distinguished for a challenging destination. The number of English-speaking locals is relatively low, but communication happens, and human kindness prevails!
