Rajasthan, which literally translates to 'King's Land' is a land so rich in culture that you fall in love with it even within the few days spent while exploring this beautiful state. The remnants of Mewar and Marwar rule can still be seen and experienced from all the forts and the palaces that are spread across the state. And not to forget, the breathtaking desert experiences in the Great Thar - the largest desert in India, is another reason not to hold back from visiting this wonderful place.
My backpacking experience through Rajasthan has been one of the most thrilling backpacking experience I have had in a long time. My friend and I had planned this trip to explore the most of Rajasthan (8 destinations to be exact!) in 9 Days and here's how we did it!
Travel : Our journey started from Bengaluru. We had booked direct flights to Jaipur. We booked the tickets a month back from our day of flight and got tickets including return for a total amount of Rs.7000. If you want to get even cheaper flights and is ready to do more travel, head to Ahmedabad and then take a train.
To save time and money, we had chosen to travel from one city to another in overnight trains in AC coaches (AC coaches being considerably safer and convenient for women to travel in North India!)
