Dausa - An Experiential Getaway in Rajasthan
Dausa lies on outskirts of Jaipur (40 kms) on Agra – Jaipur highway. Jaipur, capital of Rajasthan has become a major city with traffic, congestion, malls and multiplexes taking away the “Real India” and “Real Rajasthan” experience.
Dausa on the contrary offers guests taste of the “Real India” and “Real Rajasthan” and therefore opted for by experiential travelers as a standalone getaway and by inbound travelers as an experiential stopover retreat on the Agra – Jaipur Route.
Dausa lies in close proximity to renowned attractions of Mahendipur Balaji Temple, Abhaneri Stepwells and Bhangarh (haunted heritage area). There are number of heritage and rural retreats that offer guests Camel rides, cycling, bird watching, sundowners, village walks, evening Rajasthani dance performances etc. that offers guests options to explore Rajasthan countryside and experience rural culture, cuisine and heritage of Rajasthan. Guests even can learn to cook rajasthani cuisine, participate in village festivities and daily chores.
Some of the retreats here include
# Fort Madhogarh (Simple homely heritage hideaway)
# Talabgarh Castle (Premium Heritage Getaway)
# Umaid Lake Palace (Mid-segment organic retreat few kms from Dausa on Agra highway)
# Dera Village Retreat (Experiential retreat 36 kms from Dausa near Kalakho, 20 kms off Agra highway)
Dausa has emerged as a favorite for inbound groups and for travelers looking for a completely differentiated experience to a typical Rajathan itinerary.
