It is quite rare to find a sky full of twinkling stars amid the dust and pollution of the cities we live in. We hardly get chances to gaze at and experience the beauty of the cosmic world above us. How many times have you thought to just lie down beneath the open sky and gaze at the millions of twinkling stars until you fall asleep? So here’s a big breakthrough!

Situated near the Aravalli Range of Alwar District in Rajasthan, the India’s first Astronomy-resort is just 3 hrs drive from Jaipur and five-hour drive from Delhi. Sariska is known to be the second darkest place in India hence Astroport Resort offers to enjoy an amazing view of the starlit sky at night.
