A bit of green is being added to tourism in Rajasthan’s Shekhawati region, making farmers offer tourists a slice of rustic life and turning farm tourism into a viable proposition.
Planning a trip to the Shekhawati region in Rajasthan? You may well like to add a bit of green to your itinerary. After an engrossing peep at the fascinating frescoes and over 5,000 havelis, how about enjoying warm hospitality at a farmer’s home? Away from the cosy comforts of five-star hotels, soothing spas and swimming pools, but the real taste of Rajasthan is in a perfect rustic ambiance!
If you have always yearned to get away from the hustle and bustle of cities to have a quiet holiday, feel fresh breeze amid lush green fields in a simple village setting, the road to your dream vacation is not very far.
Farm tourism is already a hit in the region, particularly with tourists coming from Europe. It is not the typical desi food alone which is luring the foreign palate. They enjoy every bit of rural life, right from milking a cow to churning butter and trying a hand at farm activities.
Interestingly, farm tourism is more popular with overseas tourists. Domestic tourists do wish to spend a day at a farm but want to be back at a five-star hotel to rest at night. Travel companies have started taking interest in the concept and more and more overseas guests are enjoying overnight stays at farms, both in mud houses or tented accommodation. The heritage hotels of Nawalgarh and Mandawa have also started including farm visits in their guests’ itinerary….!!
