Alwar

Under the British Raj, Alwar was the capital of a "princely state," a semi-autonomous kingdom typically ruled by a maharaja. In contrast to much of the rest of Rajasthan's desert and arid hills, Alwar is set in a picturesque valley and enclosed by the verdant Aravalli Hills. The city is home to a wealth of historical and natural attractions, and serves as a center of agricultural production.

Experiences

A handpicked selection of experiences endorsed by our experts. If you can’t see what you’re looking for, let us know, as our extensive network of local contacts can open many doors.

Ajabgarh Fort

Drive to the picturesque Ajabgarh Fort, which is known as the “place of mysteries” with its marble-fronted temple and well-preserved courtyard of 24 pillars. The area surrounding the fort was a favored hunting ground of the local nobility in the 10th century.

Bhangarh

Built in 1631, this princely city is remarkably well-preserved even though it was deserted just a generation after it was finished. Legend has it that the desertion occurred because Bhangarh was cursed by a court magician who tried, unsuccessfully, to woo the city’s stunning queen. The city has never been re-inhabited, so visiting here offers the chance to imagine life as it was in the 17th century.

Mansarover Lake

In a Kashmiri-built shikara boat, cruise around Mansarover Lake, a haven for ornithologists and particularly good for bird-watching from October to February.

Sariska National Park

Visit Sariska National Park, a 309-square-mile (800 square kilometer) area in the Aravalli Hills whose habitats include grasslands, dry deciduous forests, sheer cliffs and rocky landscape. Home to a variety of species, including tigers, crocodiles, macaques, leopards, and the langur, a tree-dwelling monkey, the park also encompasses historic medieval temples and a hilltop castle, the good place to spot vultures and eagles swooping above the forests.

Tribal Village Lunch

Have lunch with a local family in remote tribal village of minority people who have maintained separate and distinct customs as a result of their isolated lifestyle.
