Day 1
When we hear about pink city, all the places which come to our minds are Hawa Mahal,Amer fort,City palace, jaigarh and nahargarh fort. There are many places which are more beautiful and perfect for day trips.

Mansagar Lake, Amer
ONE OF THE BEST KEPT SECRETS of city of Amer is a 17th century lake ‘Sagar’, which was the primary source of water for the adjoining forts of Amer and Jaigarh as well as the city of Amer and its people. Tucked away beyond Kheri Gate and anokhi mueseum. Surrounded by the Nahargarh hills, Sagar lake is a beautiful and peaceful place for one day trip. If you are visiting Amer or the Anokhi Museum in the evening, do stop by. The sunset turns the mud plastered walls of Amer into a golden labyrinth waiting to be explored.

Day 8
Sambhar lake

Sambhar, situated in the Indian state of Rajasthan, is a municipality of Jaipur and is also popularly known as the Salt Lake City.
The best time to visit Sambhar Wildlife Sanctuary and the lake is from October to March. Avoid travelling to Sambhar from June to September, as this is the monsoon season and neither would you find much wildlife then, nor would you be able to witness much of salt production.
Sambhar is well connected by road with all nearby towns. The NH-8 connects Sambhar to Malhan, which is directly connected to Jaipur.
