Kalagram At Chokhi Dhani- Handicraft Extravanganza (  Kalagram At Chokhi Dhani,  Jaipur,  Rajasthan )
Posted by : Pooja
I have been living in Jaipur for a long time and I have been going to chokhi dhani quite often. Of late i went to chokhi dhani having expecting nothing new since we have been seeing the chokhi dhani with its authenticity and sameness but to my surprise i found too many things which added to my experience.   The new reception area was quite a charm. The interiors were richly decorated with mandana art and decked with ornamently designed woodwork.   The ornate setup is mesmerising and a guest would not mind spending a good time letting the ambience seep into him and make him reach out to the rural aesthetics.   Yet the most enterprising and value creating model i saw was the kalagram. It is indeed the largest and also the most authentic display and sale area of Indian Handicrafts. Delhi Haat bazaar seems too miniscule in comparision. Located at one corner of chokhi dhani village fair, they have enacted a huge section (around 75000 sq ft and having more than 50 shops) of Handicraft, arts and crafts of various types from all across the country. You name an art and you find it...

Chokha Punjab - A Delight To Your Taste Buds (  Chokha Punjab,  Jaipur,  Rajasthan )
Posted by : Aditya Kumar
Time jaipur sees the most of the punjabi theme. A traditional Punjabi village themed fair has been running at Pink pearl water and amusement park in Jaipur. The ambience is unmistakably rural punjabi. The entrance replicates as a huge tandoor guarded by a lathi holding gatekeeper with astute and confident approach yet humbly inviting you to the grand village. As you enter you come across the authentic yet sombre ambience replicating the subtelity and grossness of a punjabi village. THe truck themed chaat section indeed binds you instantly and the mock statues of bhangra dancers with the melodious punjabi tune reverberating in the air coerces you to tap your foot and fall into the rhythm. The staff and waiters togged in tehmat-kurtas and phulkari jackets add to the culture. The food fare was also surprisingly binding. The menu was elaborate with wide choice of veg and non veg preperations and the bar adds to the punjabi feel. The gastronomical delights is easy to cherish for long along with the experience it binds around it. Also the pricing does not hit the common man pocket. Every evening, the place reverberates with folk songs...

Walking The Frozen Blanket (  Leh,  Leh,  Jammu and Kashmir )
Posted by : Pradeep Chamaria
"HOLY SHIT" - I shrieked, as I slipped on the ice and fell. I was lying flat on my back, with my arms stretched out and I could see only the beautiful blue sky above. This was how the famous frozen sheet - the ‘Chadar’, on the river Zanskar in Ladakh, welcomed me. I was here to trek over the frozen river- a trek supposed to be the ultimate experience for adventure lovers. Ladakh is a land like no other. Bound by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the great Himalaya and the Karakoram, it lies athwart two other, the Ladakh range and the Zanskar Range. The trek took me to altitudes of over 14,000 feet and had me fighting extremely low temperatures. The temperature was lowest in the mornings, and one particular night, plummeted to -25 degrees C My first brush with such low temperature came as a jolt, after the relatively smooth landing of my flight from Delhi. As the airplane was about to land at the Kushabh Bakula Rinpoche airport in Leh, the airhostess announced that the passengers should get ready to freeze, the temperature outside being -16 degrees Celsius! Leh greeted me with non-functioning hotels. Most hotels there close down for the winter season as there are not many tourists then. Also, the extremely low temperature means provision of electric-heating in the rooms and unavailability of water . I managed to find accommodation in a hotel called the Old Ladakh Hotel close to the main market. I decided to stay...

Desert City Of India (  Ganhi Chowk Street,  Jaisalmer,  Rajasthan )
Posted by : CB Singh manager at Royal Rajasthan Camp
Which city of India is known as the desert city? Well there are many contenders, but for me its Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer is a desert city in the royal state of Rajasthan and I love it. I belong to this soil which has a long history. There is soo much to see and soo much to enjoy. So if you are planning to visit Jaisalmer than you should know a bit about it. First Jaisalmer don't have an airport so you have to take a flight to Jodhpur, but Jaisalmer has a railway station and by road from Delhi ot takes 10 hours & 12 by train. You need 48 hours for Jaisalmer sightseeing and 24 hours for the camel safari which is truly amazing. But one thing which you should see is the early morning sun rise in the desert. So arrange a camel to the desert and reach the Thar Desert by 4:30 am in the morning. Food in the city is amazing. I know a restaurant name Trio which serves amazing food. Rajasthan food is a bit spicy so be ready for it. You need at least 2 nights and 3 days to see Jaisalmer and its desert safari. So the best option is to buy a package or if you are looking for a cheaper option then just book a cab for sightseeing and a one day package for camel safari. Hope my view is useful. If you want any service like package, taxi or camel safari then just contact us. We are Chetram Voyahes a travel agency in Jaisalmer. Our site is http://jaisalmertourpackage.in/

Live Life King Size @Chokhi Dhani Resort (  Chokhi Dhani,  Jaipur,  Rajasthan )
Posted by : Rahil Solanki
Whenever we talk about Rajasthan, one thing which comes in everyone’s mind is Royalty and heritage. The Grand Palaces, Forts and Architectural prodigy. And when we talk about Jaipur one place which takes everybody’s heart is Chokhi Dhani which offers you an escape from the hectic schedules. This Ethnic Village Resort is certainly a favorite of everyone whether it’s local people or tourists. Politicians and celebrities also come under the list of admirers. Here in Chokhi Dhani, guests can get pleasure from a range of facilities available in which comes the restaurants, spa & fitness center, swimming pool, doctor facility, exchange of currency, children gaming zone, bar and a lot more. And you can arrange private parties and weddings also. Stepping into this place will surely make you feel that it is worth a visit. If you really look forward to spend your holiday like a king with full of royalty then this is the place.  But, I found the food too spicy and also oily (For a diet driven person-Chokhi Dhani is a big no no). Also Chokhi Dhani being too open is difficult in monsoons. Yet, as a whole Chokhi Dhani is AWESOME !!!
