WEEKEND GETAWAYS

RANTHAMBHORE NATIONAL PARK

Ranthambhore is pure magic. The place is fraught with romance and intrigue old ruins smothered by roots, herons sharing lakes with holy men and a million myths about Raja Hamir and the glory days of the ‘impregnable’ fort.

KEOLADEO GHANA NP

Keoladeo Ghana National Park is a gem in India’s ecological crown despite being one of the smallest park in the country. Declared a World Heritage Site in 1985, it has had to with stand devastating drought in recent years.

DHOLPUR

Dolphins somersault in the Chambal and held breath as salck-jawed crocodiles with their awesome dental work turn longingly from the shoreline towards our approaching boat.. I have gazed in wonder at the sun-dazed..

BUNDI

You can amble along the lazy lanes and bazaars, going from havelis to baoris to mosques. Or visit temples and figure out why Bundi was also called ‘Chotta Kashi. Hire a bicycle or a mobike or a car and cruise across Bundi, often coming across people packed in Sumos or tractors, cooking, bathing and playing in the numerous tanks

AGRA

Strategically located at the heart of Indian in the alluvial plains between the Ganga and Yamuna. Agra had been a religious and commercial centre for centuries, but it matured and perfected itself only when the Mughals made it their home.

GWALIOR

Gwalior is essentially a small town with its obligatory share of dust and chaos, but it bears the stamp of a place that has seen much grandeur and knows it. Once the capital of maharajas and Mughul emperors, it is now the seat of the Scindia royal family.
