Activities in Udaipur
there may not be many favorable places to go for treks in the state of Rajasthan but Udaipur is one where you can enjoy this activity to the fullest. Trekking here is mostly done on the Aravalli mountain ranges which forms the backdrop of the city. These mountain ranges have many trekking trails on it making it a diversified place to go on hikes as well as treks. There is also abundance of natural beauty, flora and fauna on these mountains which is quite a stark contrast to that of the otherwise barren landscape of the nearby regions. These mountain ranges not only provide great trekking trails but they also have some of the most scenic sights to be witnessed and captured on camera. The weather on these hills is also much gentler than on the plains. The best months to indulge in this activity would be the winter months of November to February.
this is probably one of the most pleasant activities to indulge in when at Rajasthan. With the great number of adrenaline rushing adventure sports around, this activity is the perfect laid back, beautiful and soothing one amongst all the others. Udaipur being home to more than 5000 species of birds make it more the worthwhile to indulge in spotting natures beautiful treasures. The city and its surrounding areas can be seen flocked by birds of the most common indigenous type to that of the most exotic species of migratory birds, so when you’re are here be sure to pack a set of binoculars for you never known when you might spot a bird that will capture your imagination. The best time for this activity is the winter season between November to early March when the migratory species arrive to escape the winter.
if you thought that Udaipur was beautiful when you were on the ground wait to be blown away when you witness it when you’re air borne. Become one with the wind and get the literal bird’s eye view of Udaipur indulging in the amazing activity of paragliding. This particular activity is best enjoyed during the months between September to March when the weather is clear and the wind conditions are favorable. The safety standards are very high so one need not get worried about plunging to the ground. The stunning views of the amazingly beautiful city that one can get to see from here is nothing short of amazingly spectacular.
though this activity may seem to be a common one in Rajasthan, touring and sightseeing the city on a camel back is something that is exciting and exotic. Travel to the lake side, desert areas and the monuments on camel back just like the people in the erstwhile times in Rajasthan used to do.
