Amazing Road Trips from Jaipur during Monsoon!

It’s never late to plan an amazing road trip! After all, you have worked for the first 3 days of the week and you got a midweek break on account of Independence day and Rakhshabandhan. Let’s embark on a long drive as there are a lot of places in and around Jaipur that shows how beautiful the surroundings of the city are when it rains.

 

1.     Bhangarh

Bhangarh

Hiking on a blissful and adventurous break at Bhangarh and discovers the secrets of the Haunted Ruins of Rajasthan along with heritage scenery is not a bad idea.

Bhangarh is situated in Alwar district of Rajasthan and is known to be India’s most haunted place. The remains of Bhangarh Fort are informative enough to take you on a mesmerizing journey, of the reminiscence from the past. It’s just not the place, but the route also gives whimsical experience especially during monsoon. Get down anywhere, take pictures but remember to come back before it gets dark as there is no place to stay there.

2.     Ramgarh

Ramgarh

If you love passing through numerous anicuts, waterfalls and lush green forest patches, filled with an abundance of natural beauty, Ramgarh is the place to go.

If you want to stay, here’s for you a rustic The Gateway Hotel Ramgarh Lodge which was originally the hunting lodge of the Maharaja of Jaipur. Far from the bustle of the city, it is still favoured by tourists those who want to relive the glorious kingly life that once was lived by Maharaja of Jaipur.

4.     Kukas

JW Marriott

Take a drive on a Delhi National Highway, towards Kukas. Away from the chaos, this place has many luxurious hotels like Fairmont, JW Marriott, Le Meridien, Jaibagh palace and lots more. The crisp enlivening Aravali air envelopes you as soon as you take off in your vehicle on this charming highway covered with verdant greens.

Monsoon is the best time to see Bundi in Rajasthan in full glory as it comes alive with lush greenery and waterfalls. The Aravalis are prettier than ever when it rains and the journey becomes super exciting. The quaint little town is  36 km away from Kota is dotted with pretty lakes, waterfalls, nature trails during monsoon. The idyllic landscape will persuade you to stay back for a day or two.

One wouldn’t believe their eyes after witnessing the scenic view that Bundi has despite being part of dry Rajasthan!

 

6.     Pushkar

Pushkar

Take a six-lane beautiful highway up to Ajmer and continue to Pushkar through the hilly serpentine road. The temple city of Pushkar raises the spirit of all during the monsoon time when its surroundings brims with lively mesosphere. Gorge on the world-famous Maalpuas of Pushkar or just feel the hippie vibes at one of the many cafes in the town.

Sky Waltz Cafe Review: A city getaway on Jaipur Delhi Highway

When the weather looked breezy on a weekday, we left the office early for a long fun drive on the Jaipur-Delhi highway. Just a kilometre or two’s drive from Amity University and NIMS institute, we spotted a Sky-Waltz Restaurant cafe on 228 KM Stone Delhi Jaipur Highway in half an hour’s drive from the city and its hustle-bustle.

The white picket fence and the freshly-trimmed greens catch the eye and make for a very cosy entrance. Overlooking the Aravali Hills, the seating outside looks nothing short of a refreshment and romance therapy!

As we open the doors to India’s Only Aviation themed cafe, and seat ourselves, what we see is a very eccentric ambiance that celebrates the art of flying machines. Our table had momento models of the Wright brothers aircraft, while the designs of cushions and cutlery speaks of aero-science and its history. White wrought-iron cycle placed inside with beautiful flowers in its basket just balanced the aero-act. From a hot-air balloon basket in one corner, hanger lights, sturdy metal chains to hold the furniture in place to the chance of dining in raised mid-air swing style, everything about the ambiance of the cafe spells exclusivity.

Sky Waltz Cafe Jaipur

We ordered for a spinach, sundried tomato, corn, olives & feta pizza, fish & chips for our non-veg loving colleagues, and Wok-fried wild mushrooms & sesame chilli sauce. The drinks included coffee, and vanilla & caramel milkshake. Even their open-kitchen we noticed had an interesting interior with those uniquely hanging onions and garlic ! While going around the place, we noticed that our pizzas were being baked in an earthen oven in a very nouveau style, and the results confirmed just that! Good-food, rather great food makes the whole trip worthwhile; the fish served with the tartar sauce was succulent. The chef comes with some covetable culinary experience and the continental food is surely their USP.

Come with your friends, colleagues, partner or just anybody, you will love the place. They have lots of interesting theme-based stuff to look around and a board games corner too. If it’s a little late in the evening, the beautifully lit candles and the pure air surrounding the place create heavenly bliss.

All-in-all, it is a thumb-up from us to the Sky Waltz Aviation cafe. With the arriving monsoons, Jaipur surely has found an intimate getaway with the right scientific appeal for the ones interested. The really intriguing part about the place is that the owners plan to make seasonal introductions in the cafe’s ambiance and menu to keep the visitors hooked.
