The last time I had visited Rajasthan , I was a kid, and my parents took me to all the giant forts and deserts that comprises the state of Rajasthan. Though memories of the time are clear and etched in my mind, yet somehow , I didn't explore it my own way, of course being so small, I had no idea of what exploring actually meant anyways. But after years of wandering now solo and leading groups, finally I have decided to go around Rajasthan again, and that is why this March I am putting up there for sometime. And here are the things that intrigues me, and attracts me to go there!
First and foremost will be the colourful streets, and the amazing cityscapes this state has to offer. Being a reputed photography guide for my renowned photographer clients, I have always saw and heard about the awesome images they captured from the state of Rajasthan. The vibrant colours of the city adds up to a region which is very photogenic and personally very attractive! Can't wait to get my own good shots from Rajasthan.
The sunsets have always been my love, all through out life. After watching so many from mountains, oceans and forest, this time , I would like to witness one from the desert. Rajasthan with its vast stretches of Thar desert , makes up for an ideal place to camp out at night and watch the sunset. Icing on the cake will be lying down under the clear skies, that deserts have to offer and do star gazing session and astro photography.
The forts are another thing of interest. Huge walls that hold guard to the history and glorious past of the empires that rose and fell in this region. Heritage in itself , they are the true custodian of the mythical past our country of India holds, and it will be surely not a less experience to behold it and explore this great forts. Cant wait to listen to the stories from here!
The final yet most intriguing part of any journey , is the people you shall meet there. The locals from this region are known for their hospitality and colors that they live with. I am so intended to know their life style, I will be staying in a village, far out in the Thar desert and watching them closely. Living with the camel herders and knowing their stories, eating bread with them, and hopefully enjoying a drink.
I am so excited to do all of this, but I also want to have some of you by my side, hence, I have curated this whole trip as a backpacking trip you can join too. We will go through great cities like Jodhpur , Jaisalmer, Jaipur , see the forts of Mehrangarh and Kumbhalgarh, and ofcourse stay with camel herders in Thar desert.
So let me know if anyone of you is interested, we are sure to have an amazing time. I look forward to meet some of you and take this journey! And oh, did I mention I am playing 5 days of Holi this time in Pushakr Rajasthan!!!
