Travel to Rajasthan – the Royal State of India

21 Apr

The mind conjures up images of daunting forts and fortified palaces, when one thinks of the state of Rajasthan. A fairy tale come true, Rajasthan is all about chivalry, adventure, thrill, and romance. Even though the state is dominated by the arid terrain of Thar Desert and the heat is scorching, it is still the most-often chosen destination for foreign tourists. The region has a multitude of man-made lakes; some of them belong to ancient times. The popular Desert Triangle circuit covers Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, and Bikaner and is known for its massive forts and camel safaris. Rajasthan is well connected by road, train and flights to rest of India.

Whether you are visiting the state on a Royal Rajasthan Tour or on a Wildlife Tour to one of its famous tiger reserves, the hospitality of Rajasthan will hook you up as soon as you put your foot down in the state. Comfort, convenience, care, warmth, and opulent ambience of the heritage hotels of Rajasthan are complimented by their beautiful characteristic architecture and careful décor that showcase arts and crafts of the region. You can also see the royal insignia of the erstwhile rulers of the former palace displayed with pride and honor that it deserves and the furniture, dress code, and even the menu seem to radiate the glory of the regal past of the palace. Rajasthan is keen to preserve its history and culture and the efforts are being appreciated by those who wish to have a glimpse of the Royal Rajasthan of the past.

Rajasthan Wildlife Tours let you explore one of the favorite pastimes of kings and princes that are now a part of history of Rajasthan. As you cruise along the scrub thorns, rocky uneven terrains, fissured wetlands and marshes of the hunting grounds of formal princely states of Rajasthan, you will be mesmerized by sheer variety of birds and animals – indigenous and migratory – that are found here. The biodiversity of national parks in Rajasthan include rare and endangered species too, most famous being Royal Bengal Tigers that were once found in abundance here. Today, they are well-protected in their natural surroundings and seem to be used to the human company, though you are only allowed to see them from far and are not allowed to disturb or feed them in anyway. The avian fauna found in the Keoladeo Ghana Bird Sanctuary at Bharatpur makes it the world’s second best haunt for migratory birds and often founds a place in the Golden Triangle Tours of North India.

The 14-saloon air-conditioned Palace on Wheels offers an ultimate luxury train ride on your trip to royal Rajasthan. Traveling like a Maharajah, living in some of the best maintained forts and palaces, dining like kings and queens, and being offered prompt service at every step is the perfect splurge you can treat yourself with. The Lake Palace at Jaipur has often been cited as one of the most romantic locations in the world and the graceful movements of folk dance performers liven up Pushkar Camel Fair and the bonfire nights at the sand dunes of Jaisalmer. The Mughal-style royal tents at Ranthambore National Park, the camel caravan tours, and a stay at some of the best forest lodges keep Rajasthan tours fun and exciting throughout the trip.
