ESCAPE TO KORTA, RAJASTHAN
BEST TIME TO GO: OCT-FEB
A TRULY OFFBEAT RAJASTHAN SAFARI!
Escape to Korta - on horseback and an off-road jeep safari!
Immerse yourself in the colours and folklore of rural Rajasthan, see how the feudal lords lived and ruled, ride the pure-bred Marwari horses and drive off-road in 4 x 4 jeeps passing tribal villages, farmlands and 16th century ancient temples.
Day 1: ARRIVE IN JODHPUR, DRIVE TO KORTA
Simply catch the overnight train from Delhi to Jodhpur - there are four direct trains, all of which chug into Jodhpur early morning. Arrive into Jodhpur early morning and we're there to pick you up - at the airport or by train, take your pick. Drive directly to Korta which is about 160 KM and should take around 2.5 Hrs. Arrive at Korta Escape, check in, and feast on a fabulous Rajasthani meal. Spend the morning exploring the villages and the unique Rajasthani architecture around the area. Set off for an early morning walk around the tribal villages nearby; chat with the village elders as they sit near a small temple puffing on their tobacco pipes; visit a pristine white Jain temple and see an amazing display of old marble carvings excavated in the area. This is a Jain pilgrimage area and there are several temples built around here over the years. Early evening visit Korta Village. Overnight at Korta Escape.
Day 2: HALF DAY HORSE SAFARI
After breakfast we stroll down to the stables and meet your ride around Rajasthan for the day - the statuesque Marwari horses. Take a fun horseback ride so you get to know one another - you and the horse we mean! There's 300 acres of land surrounding the hotel and you will be riding through dry riverbeds towards historic temples. Relax and enjoy the view and then start riding back - through Rajasthani fields and small tribal villages.
And as the sun goes down, we're part of a candlelight service at a local Hindu temple. Perfect way to end a long day! Needless to say, a Rajasthani spread awaits you at the hotel. Dinner done, a warm bed was never more welcome!
Day 3: MORNING JEEP SAFARI AND EVENING LEOPARD SAFARI
After breakfast, we take off in an open jeep and explore the wildlife reserve close by. The Nilgai, Antelope, and Boar look at us curiously but unafraid. After lunch at Jawai Dam, we head back for an evening leopard safari.
DAY 4: DRIVE TO JODHPUR THEN RETURN HOME
After breakfast it's time to drive back to Jodhpur. If you feel like a final thrill, take the zipline trip around Mehranghar Fort before boarding your flight or train back home. You're back home - well in time to hit work the next morning, energized by the well deserved break!
