Things to do - general

As they say size matters and when it comes to the expanse and how densely populated a Rajasthani city can be Jaipur the pink hued beauty takes the cake making it the biggest and most versatile place in Rajasthan, India.

With the crowded streets and sweet scents that engulf this region it definitely would be the top most on a list of weekend getaways because of all that one can do in a location where there is such an appropriate balance of the old meeting the new, the past connecting with the present and history finding true respect and awe within travelers.

A trip taken to Jaipur especially between the months of October to March would be the most fulfilling event with the ostentatious fests and fairs to attend and brightly colored bazaars to explore. This desert city all dolled up in pink has the most exquisite landscapes in green and glistening water bodies streaked across its map so artistically putting forward a voyage comprising of palaces, forts, culture and tradition all the right ingredients in just the right proportions.

Amer an extremely tiny little town on the outskirts of the lively city of Jaipur has a very rich heritage and the glorious Amer Palace cum fort that towers over the hill it was built on are a sight to behold and worth taking a trip for. This location includes so much in itself that exploring it is a voyage of its own, from the immaculate temple to the gleaming lake beneath it and also the equally grand Jaigarh fort create a complex so vast that it would be possible to lose oneself in this alluring vicinity.

The capital of Rajasthan being Jaipur make it a very desirable site for outbound training programs as well as adventure activities having all the facilities made available easily in and around the city. Weekend getaways with friends and loved ones can be made even more spectacular in this forested hilly desert region by surrendering to the deep history and magic that come from small details like, the palace gates or garden at Amer Fort to taking rides on the friendly elephants in Jaipur.
