Rajasthan Travel Guide

There are so many things to do in Rajasthan that you won’t have time to do them all. Each experience is a challenge for the senses, and will open up the soul of India to you. From safaris in the Ranthambhore to visits to the open spice markets, the problem won't be finding what to do in Rajasthan, but picking what to do first.

If you are a nature lover, take a walk near Lake Pichola and be delighted with the blue and green mountains mirrored in its crystalline water.

Do you love animals and are wondering what to do in India? Elefantastic is a fantastic opportunity to pass a day of your trip interacting with the local elephants. Feed them, adorn their skin with traditional paints, ride them through the red sand deserts, and swim with them in the river. If you prefer, you can opt for a safari in the wildness and watch the Indian wildlife slowly pass by. For those that love birds, head to the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary, and listen to their unique, Rajasthan birdcall.
