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.

When you want to be a part of a picture-perfect scenic view, Chandlai lake is the best spot for you to pose in front of. The unsung beauty is a small lake, 30 km from the city, to experience the most peaceful picnic you need. No wonder you’ll get a bunch of beautiful pictures.

 

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.

A perfect getaway where you can experience top-notch facilities and fine dining. You can either plan for a lunch with your family or plan a one night stay in any of these places. Sit back, relax, indulge in delicious food.

 

5.     Bundi

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.

Come back with a lot of memories!

Jaipur

Jaipur Beat Clicked The Beautiful Pink city As An Exotic Backdrop For People’s Car – Volkswagen

Jaipur is called the pink city, but the truth is that this city is a thriving kaleidoscope of a gazillion colors. A living land beaming with monuments, history, forts, culture, infrastructure & some unexplored exotic locales, Jaipur renders a tale that engulfs every drop of beauty that has ever existed in human history. One such tale is narrated through this series of rare photographs where the German automobile and a paragon of class – Volkswagen, meets the city of royals and an epitome of culture, heritage and pure beauty – Jaipur.

3. Rendezvous with the nostalgic picnic spot – Ramgarh
   Approximately 30 km away from Jaipur city, with the way cocooned by verdant trees on both sides, there lies          Ramgarh dam. A place which once had a sprawling artificial lake and would attract tourists like bees to honey, is    now dry but has managed to resume its freshness by the landscape, greenery and the famous Ramgarh lodge        which people rush to especially during monsoon and winters. Volkswagen Beetle and the great Banyan tree.

This surreal sight draws bird and nature lovers from all around         the city and tourists as well. Volkswagen GTI in front of Chandlai Lake.
