A boat ride in Lake Pichola

Rajasthan is a land of colours, traditions and immense beauty. One must keep in mind that it is a very hot state so visiting there between the months of March and June is good only if you are comfortable in hotter climates. The peak tourist season is between October – January when the evenings are a little crisp but the mornings are pleasantly warm. The average temperature here is 31 o C throughout.

Places like Udaipur and Jaipur are known for their shopping experiences. One can find very ethnic and colourful items being sold. However, keep in mind to bargain down from the price quoted.

WHAT TO PACK

Light cotton clothes are a necessity here. One may want to carry some warm clothing if travelling in the colder months (November – January).

Comfortable and flat footwear is suitable as there is a lot of walking around to be done, especially near the palaces. Sunglasses, a good sunscreen, a hat and an umbrella to protect you from the harsh sun are necessity travel equipment considering the harsh sun.
