A long weekend awaits to plan a trip to Jaipur | Jaipur Beat

The universe has been kind to all of us and given us two long weekends back-to-back. Yes, we are talking about the Holi long weekend (Sat, Sun, Mon-27th, 28th & 29th March) and the Good Friday long (2nd, 3rd, & 4th April) weekend. And in case your bosses are generous and cool enough to grant you 31st & 1st April days of extra leaves then you just have the whole week off!

It doesn’t get better than this right?
Well, it does if you plan a getaway for these long weekends to none other than Jaipur aka Pink City. And just to substantiate our above hypothesis, allow us to give you some mind-blowing reasons for you to plan your getaway to our favorite city, Jaipur.

The magnificent and spectacular forts and palaces

The city is filled with forts and places that draw the attention of tourists from all over the world. The forts are well known over the globe for their royal architecture, culture, age-old charm, and grandeur. Forts that we would recommend you to visit and experience the royalty of Rajasthan are:

 • Amber Palace – The famous Amer Fort is one of the most visited forts in Rajasthan and is also registered as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Overlooking the Maota lake, Amber Fort is known for its aesthetical style elements. Also, for all the history buffs out there – do you know that Amer was the capital of the state before Jaipur?

Nahargarh Fort – What comes to your mind when it comes to enjoying an eagle’s eye view of Jaipur’s jaw-dropping skyline?
Definitely, it is Nahargarh! One of the favourite spots for Jaipurites.
Situated in the Aravalli mountains, Nahargarh which means “adobe of tigers” is a majestic and spectacular fort. You can enjoy cycling and trekking at this fort and can also visit the Nahargarh biological park. Built in 1734 during the reign of Sawai Jai Singh (1698-1740), the extensive water systems of Nahargarh are one of the most significant features of the fort. So get your walking shoe on and one can take a walk through Water Heritage to uncover history to architecture, and see the history come alive.

Hawa Mahal – This five-storey building continues to be the major attraction of all those travelling to the Pink City. The unique attraction is its 953 windows which were actually constructed to give a cool breeze to the royal ladies that watched processions from the inside of the Wind Palace.

If this architectural wonder intrigues you more, check this out: https://jaipurbeat.com/2018/12/11/things-no-one-tells-you-hawa-mahal-jaipur/

Jal Mahal – Located in the middle of Man Sagar Lake, this 5 storied building continues to stand still in Man Sagar Lake with 4 floors immersed in water.
Back then it was used for royal duck shooting parties. With tranquil waters by the side and birds sitting on top of the chattris makes for a picturesque view. One can enjoy camel or horse safari and also shop for the local handicrafts from the temporary bazaars set near this place.

City Palace – The City Palace, Jaipur is one of the most admired and finest attractions among the places to visit in the Pink City. With an organized layout of large courtyards, perfectly manicured gardens, and magnificent mahals, the palace is still home to the royal family of Jaipur. Apart from its magical architecture, the palace is also known for its beautiful gates.
While planning a trip to Jaipur, make sure you reserve a day to visit the corridors of the City Palace and live a day like the royals!

Jawahar Circle – The newest edition in the list is the ninth gate of Jaipur, known as ‘Patrika Gate’. It not only keeps heritage value but also the aesthetic value due to its modern architecture mingled with traditional style. The poly-chromatic patterns and vibrant surroundings make this gate one of a kind. The vibrant colours and mesmerizing architecture are always admired and make this an Instagram-worthy place as no one can leave without capturing its beauty.

Adventurous Trekking spots of Jaipur

Alright, all said and done. It’s really the time to break free from the mind-wracking boredom of staying at home and hit the road for real adventure. Though, all our trekking trips, weekend getaways to mountains and beaches seem like far plans, but why did we forget that Apni Pyari Pink City has so much to offer?

We have always perceived Jaipur as a land of culture and heritage with magnificent forts and palaces, but voilà! Jaipur is way prettier than this, especially during the Monsoon. To enjoy the rustic beauty of the hills and the age-old fort, try trekking around the aravalis of Jaipur. Today, Jaipur Beat will take you on a journey to some of the lesser known yet breathtakingly captivating trekking spots within Jaipur that’ll give your weekend a fresh breath of adventure. Now you all must be wondering, “Other than Nahargarh where else can we go for a good trekking?” Scroll down as we ensure that each of these treks are mind-blowing and adventurous enough to leave you feeling rejuvenated!

Thank us later-

1. Hathni Kund

Also known as Water Valley Trek, this place gives you a feel of adventure along with all the lush greenery and serene beauty amid the hustle and bustle of the city. Located 17km away from Jaipur, the trek starts at Charan Mandir near Nahargarh Fort and ends at the same place.

2. Bhuteshwar Nath Mahadev Trek

This trek is located near Nahargarh Biological Park which is one of the most popular starting points. It is much longer than the Hathni Kund but this place also serves the best views and some tranquil time. The best time to go for a hike is early morning so that you can beat Jaipur’s heat!

3. Chour Ghati Trek

This desolate place offers a beautiful trek in the remnants of Aravalis covered with beauty of greenery, chirping of birds and calmness. The trek is marked with amazing rocky trails which provide easy reach to the Monkey temple. It starts and ends at Galta Ji gate. It is a must visit for adventure lovers who are keen to be at a really quiet and mesmerizing place.

4. Chulgiri Trek

Being a prominent place, Chulgiri hills offer a more rustic trekking experience with various picturesque views. Since it is on the border with Jhalana Forest which is a home to many leopards, it is suggested to opt the stairs which lead to the Jain temple. The view from the top of the temple would leave you awestruck.

So, gear up with basic necessities and get going on an adventurous trail with your friends!

P.S. Don’t forget your mask, sanitizer, water bottles and most importantly- trash bags.

The Walled City marked as a UNESCO World Heritage Site

The royal city of India Jaipur has recently made the entry in UNESCO World Heritage Sites.  For its arcade and royal architecture, Jaipur has always been on the heritage list.  The announcement was made after the 43rd session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee at Baku (Azerbaijan). As Jantar Mantar has been already marked as World Heritage Site and now as the wall city has bagged the title is a proud moment for all of us.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi expressed his happiness through Twitter and posted “Jaipur is a city associated with culture and valour. Elegant and energetic, Jaipur’s hospitality draws people from all over. Glad that this city has been inscribed as a World Heritage Site by @UNESCO.

“The city was proposed to be nominated for its value of being an exemplary development in town planning and architecture that demonstrates an amalgamation and important exchange of ideas in the late medieval period. In town planning, it shows an interchange of ancient Hindu, Mughal and contemporary Western ideas that resulted in the form of the city,” UNESCO
