Rajasthan Tour Packages & Suggestive Travel Itineraries

Adventure Tour Packages

When in Rajasthan all you adventure enthusiasts dont forget to go for Camel Safaris which is a great fun and can be experienced only here. Other Safaris which can be taken include Bicycle Safari, Jeep Safari and also Elephant Safari. Horse Riding can also be undertaken and apart from that one can also engage in Water Sports, Paragliding and also go for long and picturesque Treks.

Water Sports

The lakes of Rajasthan are known for water sports. During the 1982 Asian games, rowing competitions were held at Ramgarh lake near Jaipur. Ramgarh lake is a man-made reservoir around 4 kms. In length and 2 kms in width.

Throughout the year, water sports of all kinds can be arranged here. Facilities for swimming, boating etc. are available. Boating is a regular feature, conducted by trained Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation staff. A fully equipped tourist village with 10 huts is situated here.

Drive for about 10 kms from Alwar and you enter dreamland. The undulating hills flaming with bougainvillea and gulmohar cradle the majestic Siliserh Lake. A beautiful Palace Hotel which is run by RTDC provides all facilities.

 Udaipur - the lake city of India, is also good for water sports with boating being a regular feature. The ideal place for water sports is Jaisamand Lake situated 50 kms south of Udiapur. This lake is the second largest artificial lake in Asia (the water spread area is 90 sq kms. ). Throughout the year, water sports of all kinds can be arranged here.

The Chambal river offers the exhilaration of water rafting in the Kota region. From Jawahar Sagar to Dholpur, the intricate network of the Chambal river, flowing through rock gorges and forests, provides ideal locales for the perfect water adventure. While traversing the river by boat, one can see the gavia (crocodile)basking in the sun on river banks. Plans are underway to introduce a ferry service on the chambal river from Kota barrage upstream to Bhensordgarh - a fine opportunity to ride on the gushing waters. Rajasthan also offers angling sites. Bandh Baretha in Bharatpur, Siliserh and Jaisamand in Alwar, Mansarover near Sariska, Kukas, Chhaparwara and Ramgarh in Jaipur are an angler’s paradise. However, the enthusiasts are advised to carry their own equipment and obtain permission from the Fisheries Department. Patience and perseverance in angling , as in life, has rich rewards.

Horse Safari
Rajasthan’ - the land of the Rajputs, is known for its kings, fearless warriors and beautiful women. It’s also known for its forts, palaces, and temples which are a reminder of the glorious past. Kingdoms were carved and established by the Rajputs on horseback, while swords were stained with enemy blood. Horses were highly priced and a Rajput warrior would give anything to own a good horse. Great care was taken to breed horses and to keep a clean and pure lineage. The result of many years of dedication and hardwork helped create breeds like the Marwari, Kathiawadi and the Sindhi, each having its own distinct characteristics and bred solely for the purpose of war. These horses were noted for their stamina and fierce loyalty to their masters. With these gallant steeds, the Rajputs became famous worldwide. There is an old saying:
"If God didn’t create the horse, He wouldn’t have created the Rajputs.

In Rajasthan, the tourist can today have the pleasure of riding through trails dotted and marked with cenotaphs and tombstones of many brave and valiant. Rajput warriors. Trails which take them through villages, pass huge and ancient forts and temples.Nights can be spent in ancient palaces and Garhs(small forts) now owned by the descendants of those glorious Rajput rulers. These palaces not only provide modern amenities but cultural programmes and entertainment is also available. Evenings are spent at campsites which are splashed with colour in the form of local folk dance and music. Tourists can have the pleasure of being escorted by a English speaking ‘trial guide’.

Riders are advised to wear boots and a hard hat. Breeches or jeans are comfortable. Evenings are cold and pullovers and jackets are essential. Sun glasses are required to avoid the glare of the sun. Beds, linen, towels etc. are all provided by the organisers. All meals are inclusive in the package. This includes an English breakfast and Indian lunch and dinner. Liquor or aerated soft drinks are chargeable extra.In Jaipur, Horse Safari is organised by some private tour operators. The Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation organises a Safari on request which starts from Jaipur and the duration of the safari is four days.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Bird Watching
Rajasthan’s lakes, ponds, marshlands and grasslands are a haven for bird lovers. One can find around 550 species of birds and most of these are residents. The best colony of birds in the world is Kealodeo National Park situated in Bharatpur.It has more than 400 species of birds and more than 130 of them breed inside the park. Being a unique bird place, the UNSECO has recognized it as a world heritage site. It is truly a paradise of feathered life which provides unlimited opportunities to bird watchers.
Various other lakes and ponds, spread over the state offer the enthusiast an opportunity to watch the activities of the birds. The major wetlands other than Bharatpur are Kukas, Kalah,

Bund, Buchora Chandi, Chhaparwara and Ramgarh in Jaipur, Silislerh Jaisamand and Mansarover in Alwar, Ana Sagar and Faterhsagar in Ajmer, Jaisamand,Pichhola and Badi ka Talab in Udaipur, Balsamand and Sardar Samand in Jodhpur, Bassi Dam in Chittaurgarh and Meja Dam in Bhilwara.

The best season for bird watching starts with the onset of winter marshlands and lakes are inhabited by migratory birds as well as resident birds. In salt-water lakes, flamingos are also found, like in Pachpadra near Barmer and Sambhar near Jaipur. Bird watching is a hobby which has minimum requirements. All you need is a binocular.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Camel Safari
Rajasthan invites you to feel the adventure of a Camel Safari, which takes you through the golden sands of the vast Thar Desert. Like horse safaris, camel safaris are also popular in Rajasthan. The camel, popularly known as the ship of the desert, is not only common in the Thar desert, but also the only means of transportation in remote areas.
Ride through sandy tracks, passing through remote villages. Pitch your tent at a new place each night. Spend the evenings next to the camp fire and dance to the folk music.

The safari is organised to take one through the golden sands of the vast Thar desert and untamed countryside, enabling one to experience the days gone by when time drifted at a leisurely pace. The rolling landscape of the sand an shrub covered area is breathtakingly beautiful and the range of flora and fauna surprisingly large for desert area.

The camel breeders of Raika are the best guides. They know every pasture, waterhole and village of the region. One can ride or walk along leisurely with the safari and the enjoy the desertscape. The camel-carts are fully equipped and tourists need not bother about comfort in the desert.

Rajasthan Tourism Development Corporation arranges the camel safari on request from Delhi and Jaipur during Nagaur Fair and desert festival.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trekking
Lying in the west of India, the topography of Rajasthan varies from sand-dunes of the desert to the lofty hill ranges of the Aravallis which makes Rajasthan a trekker’s paradise.

There are many beautiful meadows, dense forests, crystal lakes, waterfalls and rivulets meandering through the countryside. One of the oldest mountain ranges of the world, the Aravallis, extending from north-east to south-west have some beautiful forest areas. Mount Abu, about 1300 mts. Above sea level is an ideal locale.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Parasailing & Ballooning
The joy of being aloft in the wind and the thrill of defying the elements is what parasailing and ballooning are all about. Unlike other aerosports, in these, once off the ground, the sportsman is on his own. Since the skies are an element foreign to us, it would be judicious to take all precautions before indulging in the joy afforded by the sports. Responsibility for the safety for the sportsman depends to a large extent on the team helping out in this sport. Ballooning on other hand, permits the balloonist to soar high in the sky and drift over the picturesque terrain.

Parasailing and ballooning are annual events held in Jaipur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Pushkar and attract a large number of tourists and adventure seekers.

Elephant Safari
The most regal way of seeing Rajasthan is on an elephant safari, since nothing can even compare with the majesty of the pachyderm - no wonder the rulers used elephants for their journeys.

Equipped with a howdah, a large seat on which they would sit, complete with soft silk cushions, and with a ceremonial umbrella over their heads, modern day safaris may pale in comparison, but are no less regal on that account.

The elephant treads slowly and steadily, and a safari would be ideal in and around principal towns, especially in the vicinity of wildlife sanctuaries where the same elephants can do double-duty for viewing wildlife.

Since an elephant safari is an elaborate affair, and requires many attendants for the beast as well, such camps too tend to be more lavish, and so these are best for incentive groups who can be promised an experience, the like of which they are unlikely to ever have elsewhere.
