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.
