One of the most popular tourist places in India, Rajasthan is a great travel destination all year round. Cities like Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, and Udaipur are often some of the first places travelers to India aim to.

Rajasthan represents quintessential magical India most travelers think of when planning their trip. A burst of colors, intoxicating scents, and flavors that permeate the air and inevitably seduce travelers from the world over.

The land of Maharajas, visiting Rajasthan you will sense much of the ancient Indian lifestyle, especially the rural way of living. Thankfully, alongside the palaces, the museums, and the historical landmarks, it’s also possible to visit small villages and stay overnight at some heritage places.

A Rajasthan tour is pleasant all year long for many reasons. Except for the summer, when it’s pretty hot, the weather is never too extreme. On top of that, they organize several traditional festivals in different cities, so there is always something to do.

Last but not least, you will love your Rajasthan trip also for its intricate handicraft, colorful textiles, and scrumptious food tradition.

Our articles will help you make your own Rajasthan itinerary or North India tour in general.
