Accommodation is provided in basic thatched-roof cottages, and is priced at Rs 1,500 for a double-bedded cottage. The farm is surrounded by fields of mustard & jo, and attracts a lot of migratory birds in all seasons. Typical Rajasthani food is cooked on traditional chulhas using farm-grown ingredients.

Understand

Talk

Hindi is the most widely and commonly used language here. Though English isnt a problem at all, almost any local can understand english. and getting french, German or even japanese guides at hotels at this region of India is not a problem.

Here, your staying will accustome you for learning a bit of Hindi words. Say 'Namaste' or Namaskaar for any person as a sign of greet (equivalent to Hello).

The rates for all the monuments (entry fee, camera fee, guide fee) are different for Indian and Foreign tourists. There are government guides at all major tourist spots. But for tourists, there is a facility of headphones for tourists. This is called as "AUDIO GUIDE". This is basically an automated narration of what you see by using a walkman/ MP3 player like gadget. This works more like a regular guide but at the click of a button. The gadget consists of a cell phone like instrument with number keys, Play and Pause keys and a volume control knob. A headphone is attached to the instrument. You can hang the instrument around the neck using the attached string. Put-on the headphone, enter number 1 and press the Play button. You would here the first track. Enter the number 2 and press Play, you can listen to the second recording and so on. The number you need to press is displayed at the corresponding area/exhibit you would come across in the site/museum.

Get in

By Air

The 3 cities of Delhi, Agra, Jaipur all have International airports, but it's better to start from Delhi itself. Please refer individual cities for more details about airports.

Itinerary

A week's journey for Golden triangle would seem perfect to cover everything.


Delhi

The country's capital, has the best monuments, structures, and places of great interest in India. This consists of the well-planned New Delhi, and the older section (Delhi or Old Delhi).

2 days in Delhi would make Delhi city traversed by tourists at the best.
