Out of many vacations, winter vacations has its own delight and enthusiasm. Winter season is blessed with very cool weather conditions.
This winter vacation forced me to select best vacation destination of India. I told my Papa about my desire. He agreed and he discussed with his friend's 'family vacation ideas'. After that we ultimately selected best vacation destination as Rajasthan this time. It is because we've visited other vital locations of India but never tasted the magical look of Royal State of Rajasthan. Rajasthan experiences cold climatic condition during winter season similar to other states of India. Blessed with natural beauty and enriched history Rajasthan has been popular destination to attract every third foreign tourists for it's palaces, historical forts and culture.
The palaces of Jaipur, lakes of Udaipur, and desert forts of Jodhpur, Bikaner & Jaisalmer are among the most preferred destination of many tourists. Mehrangarh Fort (Click to see the images of Mehrangarh fort) in Jodhpur usually regarded as the best fort in Rajasthan, is a must watch fort .
We made Jodhpur as centre to cover Udaipur, Jaipur, and Jaisalmer. We decided it from very beginning with the help of Google map.
In Jaipur we visited Jaswant Thada , Umaid Bhawan Palace, and the gardens at the older capital of Mandore. We also went to the village safari saw the desert life. One day is sufficient to complete the Jodhpur main visiting spots.
Then we went to Jaisalmer by MDR 32 and NH 15 by road. It took four and half hour to reach to Jaisalmer (285 km). The Interesting visiting spots are Kuldhara Abandoned Village, Bada Bagh, Jaisalmer Fort, Khaba Fort, Patwon-ki-Haveli , Salim Singh-ki Haveli. It takes usually 2 nights and 3 days for jaisalmer to cover all spots. After that we came back to Jodhpur and took a night rest at Jodhpur.
After that we went to Jaipur. The main attractions of Jaipur were
Hawa Mahal, Amer Fort, City Palace, Jantar Mantar Jai Mahal and Nahargarh Fort. There are also more to see, but due to shortage of time we couldn't complete rest. We completed these spots in one night two days.
Finally we returned back to Jodhpur and on the same day we went to Udaipur (254 km by NH 65). In Udaipur we visited City Palace, Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar Lake and Jag Mandir. Fateh Sagar Lake attracted me much. If you can spare three days and two night for Udaipur then it can be covered fully.
We returned to Jodhpur and came back to Durgapur. Overall conclusion is that this winter vacation was the best winter vacations we ever enjoyed in past. The Rajasthan tour spots are really very interesting to see.
