Rajasthan – A Beautiful Winter Destination

Rajasthan, literally translated to Land of Kings, home to the massive Thar desert and the ancient Aravalli mountain range, has a rich history, ecology and culture. It is also one of our favourite winter destinations.

Apart from the ruins of the Indus valley civilisation to the Dilwara temples; from the historically important forts and palaces to a diverse variety of wildlife, every city within Rajasthan offers a vibrant history behind its colours (the blue city of Jodphur, the pink city of Jaipur), cultures and customs.

Rajasthan is home to important sanctuaries like the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary and the Ranthambore National Park.

From theme based literary and photography tours, to tailor-made safaris, hot-air ballooning, royal train rides, staying in opulent palaces and indulging in organic cuisines, Ibex Expeditions promises you a rustic, unique experience soaked in luxury.

You can taking culinary lessons, learn the art of playing cricket, cycle around Jal Mahal (Water Palace) and visit the Maharaja’s cenotaphs at Gaitore, discover the City Palace Complex and learn about the daily life of Maharajas. You can fly kites with the locals, learn the art of Bollywood dance, take a private Yoga class or just amble about! There is a lot to do in Rajasthan this winter.
