This morning, you’ll travel from Pushkar to Chandelao. Here you’ll spend the night in a 300 year old fort in the centre of the village. You can walk into the village, where you’ll see kids playing cricket and women herding cattle in colourful saris. In the evening, you can dine by candlelight at the fort.

Day 2 – Chandelao – countryside jeep tour – Jodhpur

After breakfast, you’ll step into the jeep with your guide to explore the local countryside. The friendly locals will teach you about their daily lives, and you’ll pass schools, clay huts and pottery workshops. In the pottery workshop, you’ll try your hand at whipping up a pot of your own. It is not as easy as it looks! You’ll return to the fort for lunch before continuing to Jodhpur, where this trip ends.
