Weather In Rajasthan
Since we traveled in the month of October, we actually ditched the scorching heat that Rajasthan is famous for. The weather was lovely during both day & night. Moreover, we could have immense fun while enjoying the pleasant weather. The best part about planning a trip during this time was that it was not a tourist season, hence there was not much crowd. So, we could thoroughly explore each and every attraction and make the most of our Rajasthan tour in October.
Some Highlights Of Our Trip
On our 8 days trip to Rajasthan in October, we got the chance to visit some of the best tourist spots. Here I am jotting down some memories that are etched in my heart forever:
1. Jaipur: Getting Mesmerized By The Pink City
Our first destination was the “Pink City” called Jaipur. The moment we entered the destination, we could feel the serenity it holds. There’s a famous place where delicious lassi is served. Next, we headed towards the Albert Hall Museum which is a commendable example of Indo-Saracenic architecture. Next, we headed to Amber Palace and then to Hawa Mahal. Both the sites had their own charm and offered us a lovely time.
2. Pushkar: Soothing Our Souls At The Temple City
Our day 3 was dedicated to Pushkar which is famous for its holiness. In Pushkar, we visited the famous Savitri Temple, Brahma Temple, and Karni Mata Temple. Not only this, but we also paid a visit to Ajmer dargah on our way to Pushkar. Within just one day, we explored so many places and the amount of fun we had is actually infinite.
3. Bikaner: Enjoying On The Land Of Camels
Next, we headed to Bikaner where we got the chance to see camels a little more closely. After reaching Bikaner early in the morning, we proceeded to camel breeding farm. There we got to learn about the habits of camels and their breeding methods. We also roamed around the farm and looked at how they are fed. All in all, it was such a wonderful experience which we will not be able to experience anywhere.
4. Jaisalmer: Feeling The Magic Of Golden City
Our next stop was Jaisalmer where we reached in the afternoon. Upon reaching the destination, we instantly immersed ourselves in the beauty of it. There, we visited Gadisar Lake which interestingly is a man-made lake. After this, we also explored the Jaisalmer War Museum which offered a great time especially for children. They got to know about the rich history of India. Apart from this, we also went to Kuldhara which is a small quaint village offering travelers a peaceful time. We also made the most of our vacation while going on a safari.
5. Jodhpur: Imbibing Serene Vibes
This was the last destination of our lovely trip to Rajasthan. Also known as The Blue City, Jodhpur is a must-visit place in Rajasthan. To bid a wonderful adieu, we visited various tourist spots such as Mehrangarh Fort, Jaswant Thada, and Umaid Bhawan Palace. After that, we visited local markets to buy some souvenirs. Moreover, temperature in Jodhpur in October made our vacation all the more exciting.
Our Personal Expenses In Rajasthan
Since our transfers and accommodation were managed by TravelTriangle, we really didn’t have to spend much on our trip. Also, we found the food to be quite cheap in Rajasthan. There were various affordable restaurants where delicious food was offered at cheap prices. So, we think that 10-15k per4son person would be enough for extra expenses that include shopping as well. However, there are some places and forts in Rajasthan where the prices of entry fees are quite high. So, in case you are on a budget trip you can skip visiting those attractions.
Shopping In Rajasthan
Shopping in Rajasthan is indeed a must-try experience for all the travelers. There is so much to buy from here that one can actually enjoy a shopping spree. We also bought some souvenirs from Jaisalmer fort. Apart from this, there are some shops which are run by the government where prices are comparatively cheaper.
Restaurants In Rajasthan
Finding delicious food is not at all a hassle in Rajasthan. Dal bati churma which is the staple food of Rajasthan was what we savored the most. All in all, the food quality was great and interestingly, there are various restaurants available where you can get meals a cheap prices. Apart from this, the top restaurants in Rajasthan offer delicacies from various parts of the world.
Hotels In Rajasthan
We got the chance to stay in various hotels while exploring major destinations in Rajasthan. The quality, services, and hospitality were up to the mark of all the hotels. However, we felt that the hotel in Jaipur could have been better. Nevertheless, all the accommodations were great and since all of them were centrally located, we could get access to various attractions. Here is a list of some of the famous hotels in Rajasthan we stayed at:
Jaipur: Hotel Golden Heritage
Pushkar: Pushker Vela
Bikaner: Hotel Bharat Palace
Jaisalmer: Hotel Royal Heritage
Jaisalmer: Vinayak Desert Camp
Jodhpur: Hotel City Centre
How To Reach Rajasthan From Mumbai
We boarded a train from Mumbai to Jaipur which took us around 15 hours to reach the final destination. Since it was an overnight journey, it was quite smooth and we hardly realized when we reached Rajasthan.
