It was our last day or rather the last few hours in Jodhpur, before we boarded our flight back home. We decided to spend them experiencing a tribal Rajasthani Village, and visited Bishnoi Village. We booked a Jeep Safari for Bishnoi Village.
The Bishnoi Community is known for protecting the wildlife and the environment in Rajasthan. If you remember the case against a famous Indian actor, for killing Indian Antelope/black buck, that incident happened in Bishnoi Village. The safari includes visiting
✨ Two forest areas, one for spotting Black Bucks, Neel Gaye, and Deer, and another one for spotting Peacocks.
✨ A Rajasthani pottery house, where they show you how they make different kinds of clay artefacts. You can also make your own.
✨ Block painting workshop, where you can see how they block paint bed sheets and cloth material for sale.
✨ A house where they extract Opium for medicinal use. They show you the whole process of extracting it and give it to you for taste.
✨ A dury makers house, where they show you the whole process of making Duris.
✨ Followed by Rajasthani Lunch where you can see them making authentic Rajasthani food.
This is a must have experience when in Rajasthan. You will learn so much about the people and culture in just a few hours.
Best time to visit: Leave in morning by 7am
Time Required: 5-6 Hours
Cost for Safari including Rajasthani Lunch Thali for two: INR 2500
