*Hidden Treasure of Rajasthan*

(8 Nights / 09 Days)

Away from the busy tourist trail is the rustic and rural Rajasthan. This cycling journey through back roads of Rajasthan explores the small villages nestling happily on the rugged terrains and introduces from close quarters the people who inhabit them. Wrinkled tree thickets, rustic huts with their thatched roofs, drooping camels chewing fodder, women cleaning their courtyards or designing the mud walls with plasters of clay, cow dung and hay and ever-smiling children is what these villages are all about.
This journey is ideal for cyclists looking to explore beyond the iconic monuments, as we uncover the real and un-spoilt rural Rajasthan.

Trip Notes:

CYCLING: Daily cycling ranges between 50 to 70 kilometers. If any group member wishes to cycle less, they may hop on to the support vehicle for a part of the journey.

TERRAIN: In Rajasthan most of the roads are asphalt, however, in small villages, the roads are either broken or have been cobbled, thus making it difficult to use road bikes. Mostly along rustic rural lanes where there is little or no traffic, you get to experience rural India at its best. There are occasional stretches of busier roads as well, however, we provide 100% support vehicle to give you a lift if you would rather not ride on these sections. Towards the end of the tour you will gradually ride uphill as you reach Aravalli hills. You will experience Rajasthan countryside firsthand and encounter pink-turbaned men, women carrying fodder in colorful skirts and camel carts plying along the roads.

WEATHER: January to mid-April and October to December is the best time to cycle in Rajasthan. Average temperatures range from max of 25°C and minimum of 7°C. The desert sun is not so intense and the days are cool and pleasant, perfect for cycling. The mornings and evenings are generally cool and mild; however, January and late December can be very cold. There is no humidity and little or no rain can be expected. May, June, July and August are extremely hot and not recommended for cycling.
