It was one of those impromptu yet planned trips and we ended up at Dadhikar Fort in Alwar, Rajasthan! The idea was to drive down early morning (which we did actually) and get back by the evening! 

But the exact opposite happened! We reached Dadhikar Fort in three hours from Gurgaon and ended up booking ourselves a room there because the place was so pretty and scenic! 

The drive from Gurgaon to Dadhikar is a pleasant one with of course some pot holes here and there but on the whole if you have friends with you and you leave early morning, you won’t waste time! We stopped at Mc Donalds, picked up some pancakes and burgers from their breakfast menu, got the music going and ourselves rolling! 

We have all heard about Neemrana and their properties in North India, I have visited a few of them too so this time we decided to ditch the usual and look for something else. After much ‘Googling’ I came across Dadhikar Fort’s website and proposed the place to everyone else and I am glad we ended up there. It was a good start to the New Year! 

The fort is situated on a hill top and has a beautiful view with fresh air. In the evening they have a special Rajasthani performance for residents of the property and rose petals are showered  during the performance on everyone sitting around. The best part about the night is they allow you to sit on the terrace, play music and just star gaze. I have NEVER seen a sky full of stars the way I did that day. Its the simple things in life that make memories at times.

So, if you are looking for a quick gateway over a weekend this is a good bet. There are a few places around Dadhikar that you can check out too!

Go outside the city, you'll know how beautiful India is, they just don't call it Incredible India for nothing. Top view from Bala Quila Fort.

Since it was an impromptu plan to stay, we were lucky to get a room and a nice one. The bathroom was neat and clean and the room was super cozy. The room also had a small balcony with a pretty stool and the view of the hills.

Our evening was the best part of our trip. We literally hogged on the pakoras and had innumerable cups of tea and chilled. If you are staying at the property, the evening tea will be included in your package. They serve tea at the terrace over looking the hills.

They serve buffet lunch (you will need to pre-book your meal if you are going for the day). They serve only vegetarian food. We had dinner here as well and it was much better than the lunch.

If you have a thing for sunsets, you can see the sky change colours every few seconds before and after the sun sets. It's lovely.

The property is beautifully lit up in the evenings and fairy lights add that extra touch.

After checking out on Sunday morning, we drove down to Siliserh lake for boating. To our surprise the lake was very well kept and gave a beautiful view. We took a pedal boat and pedalled around for an hour or so.
