| Off the Beaten Track
activity oriented rural retreat near Jodhpur like Rohetgarh
or Chanwa Luni can be opted for an experience
oriented (Village Visits, Horse Safari, Jeep Rides) itinerary. For a more
village like experience, Bishnoi
Village is an excellent option.
night at Manvar, a Desert camp mid-way on
route can be considered. Manvar is more private desert retreat than ones at Sam
and provides a more profound Desert experience than a more touristy Sam.
Camp Osian takes this desert experience to another level with
offerings like ½ day
camel ride at Osian,
Champagne Lunch, Theme dinner (flame torch)
on the dunes and the ultimate
two night mobile camel camp.
bird watching and experiential stay enthusiasts, Bhap (130 before from
Bikaner on Jaisalmer - Bikaner route) is an excellent option and Barsingha
Villa Bhap is an excellent stay option for a variety of experiential
activities. Bhap can be an alternative to Bikaner stay or could be done
in addition to Bikaner Stay.
Guests may opt for
activity options at Pushkar and taking a step further may opt for Nimaj insted
of Pushkar for a more rural and relaxing backdrop. Chhatrasagar
and Nimaj Palace are excellent
experiential options high on Rajasthan experience and charm.
Guests may opt for Fort
Madhogarh instead of Jaipur stay. Fort
Madhogarh offers an experiential stay that involves Camel rides and Jeep
Safari to the village, Half day Camel/ Horse/ Jeep Safari to the Tunga battle
field, cenotaphs and step wells, bird watching etc. Cookery lessons in
