This trip was an effort to avoid the commercialized tourist spots in Rajasthan. It is part of many series of trips which my girlfriend and I have planned for different regions of Rajasthan. Since Northern Rajasthan is nearest to Delhi, this was our first. We covered Alwar, Baswa, Abhaneri/Bandhikuin, Sikandra, Bhandarej and Dausa. All these small towns and hamlets would fall on the way from Alwar to Jaipur. But the signboards with these unfamiliar names are usually ignored by most travellers as not much is known about these places. Offbeat, definitely. Enjoyable, if you love to drive. It would a be different story altogether if you wanted to make this trip by using public transport. We stayed at Jai Niwas (Hotel), Jaipur overnight and returned to pick-up from where we left the second day, before returning to Delhi in the evening.
