Javian's Choice


Arriving at Lake Pichola in Udaipur, it’s hard to believe the city is located in a state known for it’s desert regions. The lake is covered by palaces, forts, and hills on all sides. It’s no wonder that the city is often mentioned as the “Most Romantic City of India”.

Jaipur is a popular destination for travelers interested in the golden triangle (Delhi-Agra-Jaipur). The Jal Mahal is a beautiful palace in the middle of the Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur city. Though currently it’s not open to visitors, it’s worth the photos to take a boat trip to view the outside from the lake.

A true desert city, in the farthest area of Rajasthan, Jaisalmer is breathtaking and picturesque. The Jaisalmer Fort in the heart of the city is not just a historical attraction, but unique for still being home for almost 3000 residents. Though there are many streets and corners to explore, our favorite are the seven Jain temples inside the fort complex. Be sure to bring a guide to not miss out on any of the intricate artwork!

One of the holiest Hindu cities, Pushkar hosts the Annual Camel Fair, does not serve alcohol or meat, and is a pure vegetarian region. The largest camel fair is between October and November, where visitors can view, buy, sell or even race camels. After all, you can’t leave Rajasthan without a camel safari!

The Classics


Upon first learning that the city of Jodhpur is nicknamed "the blue city", visitors do not actually expect a charming vision of blue houses to greet them. The best view of the city is from the top of the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, one of the largest forts in India. Meandering through the many palaces and villas in the fort is sure to take at least 2 hours but is well worth it. Jaipur is the capital and largest city of Rajasthan. The Hawa Mahal in Jaipur, better known as the legendary 'Wind Palace', is an excellent reason to include Jaipur in your trip. It is not a time consuming stop, but a view of it in the early morning is striking. Dubbed the oasis in the desert and famous for its miniature paintings and many stepwells, Bundi is known to have attracted some famous names like Jungle Book's Rudyard Kipling, Rabindranath Tagore, film maker Satyajit Ray and more.Experience the local culture and heritage in the Bundi Villages that lead up to the Garh Palace. The exquisite Jawai Leopard Camp located in Pali offers not just safaris but an entire experience for travelers to stay locally, enjoy the local cuisine, gather for bonfires, and take multiple jeep safaris to see leopards and other wild animals.

Off The Beaten Path


At the Ranthambore National Park, visitors' chances of a Tiger sighting are higher than most other parks in India. The park is a bus ride away from the cities of Jaipur and Kota, and opened from October to June. Along with the tigers, jackals, leopards, jungle cats and a wide array of birds, the park is also scattered with ancient temples and mosques, and hunting pavilions!
