Essential Information About Rajasthan
Here's some important information as recommended by Lakhs of our travelers
Known as a cultural and architectural hub, Rajasthan is also a food lover’s delight due to its delectable cuisine. Rajasthani food is famous all over the country and any holiday tour of Rajasthan is incomplete without trying some of the scrumptious dishes here.
Dal Bati Churma is a famous food in Rajasthan where the tasty Batis are served with Panchkuti dal and the churma. Those who love spicy food will enjoy Laal Maas, which is full of fiery red chillies. For rice lovers, Gatte ki Khichdi and Gatte ka Pulao are some of the popular Rajasthani food items that one must try. The spicy Rajasthani Kadi is different from the Kadi eaten across the country and is also a must try.
Among the popular Rajasthani snacks are the sugary sweet Mawa Kachori, the tasty Methi Bajra Poori, the scrumptious Pyaaz Kachori, and the crispy Kalmi Vada. Any visit to this state is also incomplete without savoring Rajasthani sweets list like Ghevar, Balushahi, Gujia, and Churma Ladoo.
Tourists will come across a variety of exquisite wares in the streets and bazaars of Rajasthan that reflects its rich and diverse culture. Any tourist guide in Rajasthan will tell you that Johari Bazar is the perfect place to visit for Jaipuri ornaments. Bapu Bazaar has a variety of handlooms while Clock tower market is famous for its spices. For Bandhani items, Nai Sarak is the place to go whereas Hathi Pol Bazar is the ideal place for home items. Sadar Bazar, Mahatma Gandhi Road, and Kote Gate are other bazaars one must check out on a trip to Rajasthan.
The weather in Rajasthan generally varies due to the fact that the state has a tropical desert climate. Rajasthan weather is extremely cold from October to February, scorching hot from the months of April to June, and quite pleasant from July till September. Temperatures can reach as high as 49°C and as low as -2°C. Jaisalmer, Phalodi, and Barmer are the hottest regions while Churu, Sikar, Bikaner, and Pilani get pretty cold. Rainfall in Rajasthan depends on the region you are in, with the east of the Aravalli region receiving much more rainfall than the westward area.

Ashok's 6 days trip to RajasthanIt was a nice trip overall. Cab driver is very polite and Gentle.
U's 5 days trip to RajasthanIt was a well arranged and organised travel plan. We are happy with the arrangements as a whole. Mr. Ravindra Singh, Ms. Tanishqa of Getz Destination and Ms. Bhoomika of Travel Triangle have done a good job. Please keep it up.
Dhiren's 6 days trip to RajasthanThe cab service was the main issue. The car could travel faster than 80 KM per hr and it was an issue when travelling longer distances between cities. Also the cab driver did not know the city well enough to take us to good shopping locations. We had to figure it out ourselves.
Ajoy's 10 days trip to RajasthanIt was a great trip....we had a change of cab and driver after the second day but both the drivers were very good and they were almost part of our group.... suggestions from them to visit additional places not part of the itinerary made our trip even more exciting Cannot single out a single instance because we carry lots of memories
Jyothi's 5 days trip to RajasthanOur trip was so good, thank you for such a wonderful trip..thank you travel triangle.. Our trip was so good, thank you for such a wonderful trip..thank you travel triangle..
Ssachinshanbhag's 5 days trip to RajasthanThis was my first trip to Rajasthan and with Travel Triangle/Mithila Travels. Generally in normal packages, you would have packed schedule and crunch for time space, but with Travel Triangle, I could customize the package the way I wanted and had a relaxed trip with the family. The cab and the persons appointed by Mithila travels for our stay in Rajasthan was very friendly and polite and obliged with any request we had in our mind during the trip. Amer fort in Jaipur. Unexpectedly, it was a wonderful fort. And the Army War Museum in Jaisalmer.
Lloyd A Tucker
Lloyd's 4 days trip to RajasthanMohd Ameed (Tourepedia) and our driver Surendra were fantastic for our trip covering Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. I was very pleased with the ability to customise the tour package as per our requirements so we could squeeze in an extra day of sightseeing in Jaipur. I was also very happy with Surendra as he was exceptionally professional, spoke English well, answered questions along the drive, drove safely and provided seatbelts in the back of the car. Everything was exceptional. The only thing that could've made the trip better was if Surendra was able to also be our guide for the sights, or if Tourepedia was able to pre-negotiate tour guides at the necessary sites. India Gate (Delhi), Amber Fort, Fatehpur Sikri
