Here’s how to Plan Rajasthan Trip for 7 Days and see all popular and not-so-popular cities including a food trail to make it a perfect souvenir.
Rajasthan is a place where no matter how many days you spent are still less enough to explore the state. The state is diverse in itself. The four gems of the state that makes it a colorful state of the country are – Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Jaipur, and Udaipur.
Not forgetting other bonus places like Bikaner, Pushkar, and Ajmer. So before you plan a trip to Rajasthan, better to know where to visit first and what to see there.
Itinerary to Plan Rajasthan Trip for 7 Days
PS – If you are going to Rajasthan, try covering all the four places i.e. Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Jaipur, and Udaipur. I repeat, cover them all together and you will not regret it.
When you start a road trip from Punjab, the first place you encounter is Bikaner. Famous for its Namkeen, visit Junagarh fort, Bhandsar Temple.
The Bikaner camel festival is something one should attend, have a heartwarming mean at Gallops Restaurant, visit the old city to feel royal and one can also go for a camel or jeep safari in deserts.
Ahead of Bikaner, the golden city of the state- Jaisalmer, is filled with buildings and shops made of yellow sandstone, the place looks magical.
Famous for its Jaisal Fort, five flavored Paani Golgappas and authorized bhang shop. It offers many other good attractions to the travelers.
You can visit Gadisar Lake, inside the fort, there is Jain Mandir, you can go to nearby desert camps and get a taste of living in tents and folk dance and music and buy yourself a leather bag.
Jodhpur is also known as the ‘Blue City’ of the state. Now Jodhpur lies opposite to Jaisalmer, so you can go to Jaisalmer or Jodhpur first and then head to Jaipur.
Having the similarity to Júzcar, a blue town in Spain, the place is meant for the foodies. You can get kachoris, Mirchi Vadas, Makhaniya Lassi, mixed fruit lassi, Rabdi Jalebi and not to forget the famous Omelette Man near the clock tower.
The Mehrangarh Fort stands high and guards the city by being in the center. The evenings are best spent by going to a roof-top restaurant and having dinner (my personal fave being Jhankar Restaurant and also Gypsy) and a must try vegetarian restaurant namely ‘Vijay Restaurant’
Jaipur, known as the ‘Pink City’, is the capital of the Rajasthan state. Being blessed with Birla Temple, Amer Fort, Jantar Manter and Hawa Mahal, the city offers Choki Dhani – the paradise for every Rajasthan culture lover.
Try kachori at Johri Bazaar and Doodh Mishtan Bhandar, an evening spent watching Jal Mahal and a shopping spree of dupattas and Lehangas at Bapu Bazaar.
Pushkar lies near to Jaipur and is best visited during Pushkar Camel Fair. The fair usually happens in October-November and is an annual five-day camel and livestock fair.
Competitions such as the “Matka Phod”, “Longest Mustache”, and “bridal competition” are the main draws for this fair. In Pushkar, one can also ride a hot air balloon, visit Pushkar lake and Brahma Temple.
The holy land of Ajmer Sharif is quite close to Jaipur and is famous for Ajmer Sharif Dargah.
Thousands of people come to the place including Muslims and non-Muslims to visit the place. One can also visit Taragarh Fort, Ana Sagar Lake and Ajmer Jain Temple.
Udaipur, also known the ‘City of Lakes’, is the most beautiful city of Rajasthan. Famous for the City Palace and other tourist attractions like Lake Pichola, Fateh Sagar Lake, Monsoon Palace and Jagdish Temple.
Once visited the place, you’ll fall so hard for it. It’s the fourth gem of the Rajasthan after Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Jaisalmer.
So next time you Travel to Rajasthan or you are about to travel to Rajasthan, do remember in what order to travel. Trust me, you’ll enjoy the whole trip.
