Rajasthan promotes itself as year-round destination

There is arrival of tourists in the state throughout the year.

Tourism in Rajasthan offers visitors a captivating journey into a realm of mystery and excitement. While many associate Rajasthan with winter tourism, it boasts a unique charm that beckons travelers even during the summer months.

The deputy director of the tourist department, Dalip Singh Rathore, claims that seasons no longer affect tourism in Rajasthan. This trend is being seen among tourists post COVID period.

According to Rathod, the autumn season in the state also draws a lot of visitors because domestic travellers, particularly those from southern states, find the period between September and October and just before Diwali to be particularly convenient. In addition, tourism in Rajasthan is at its peak from October to March.

Rathore goes on to say that Rajasthan has all the necessary components for a successful tourism industry, including famous landmarks and heritage areas, unique heritage villages and craft villages, experiential tourism, desert tourism, adventure tourism, wildlife and ecotourism, weekend gateway tourism, religious tourism, wedding tourism, wellness tourism (medical tourism), rural tourism, and film tourism, among others. These factors combine to make Rajasthan the first choice for MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) tourism.   Between September and October, Rajasthan’s weather is temperate.  Since there is no longer a wedding season, hotels now offer inexpensive packages to draw customers.

Mount Abu, Rajasthan’s popular hill-station experiences year-round tourist inflow.  Tourists are drawn to Mount Abu by its splendour.  Mount Abu is renowned for its high cliffs, serene lakes, beautiful surroundings, and favourable weather.

The highest peak in the Aravalli mountain range is Gurushikhar of Abu.  After coming here, you feel as though you are riding the skies and the clouds are beneath your feet wherever you walk.  Dilwara Jain Temple, Nakki Lake, and Sun Set Point transport you to a hypnotic place where you can’t help but drool. Udaipur, “the city of lakes” is located 265 kilometres from Ahmedabad and 180 kilometres from Mount Abu.   Because of its proximity to the state of Gujarat, Udaipur attracts a huge number of indigenous tourists from Gujarat and Maharashtra, as well as foreign tourists. Udaipur has the highest number of foreign tourists after Jaipur.  According to Rathod, Apart from lakes and palaces, Udaipur also boasts of its rich markets which entice shoppers.  Along with the mesmerising and exhilarating worlds of Mount Abu and Udaipur, visiting Kumbhalgarh allows travellers to enter the supernatural world.

Kumbhalgarh Fort is a popular tourist attraction in Rajasthan. It is is one of Rajasthan’s hill forts that was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the year 2013. Built atop the Aravalli range’s foothills, this fort is surrounded by thirteen mountain peaks and is at an elevation of 1,914 metres. This lovely fort is set in a forest that has been turned into a wildlife sanctuary.

Kumbhalgarh Fort is also renowned as the birthplace of Maharana Pratap. The perimeter of Kumbhalgarh Fort is 36 km, making it one of the world’s longest walls. After ‘The Great Wall of China,’ the defence wall built around this fort is considered the world’s second longest wall. That is why it is also known as ‘The Great Wall of India’. This wall stretches for 36 kilometres and is up to 15 metres wide, allowing eight horses to walk together.

Dalip Singh Rathore stated that the Ranthambore Tiger Reserve in Sawai Madhopur is also a tourist destination. Camel Safari in Jaisalmer’s sand dunes is a unique experience during this season. There is experiential tourism, heritage tourism, and spiritual tourism accessible here. Visitors are left with a velvety impression in Bundi, which is also renowned for its fort, palaces, ceramics town, and lush green forests
