The rajputs were born to be horse riders (Ashwarohi). The tradition was strongly enforced in ancient times when the cavalry formed the most important flanks of the army. Special indigenous breed called "Marwaari" which are hardy, agile, sensitive, sturdy and intelligent were bred.


We use all marwaari horses bred and trained at our own thikana stables. We also boast of having a name of "the home of Marwaari Breed". Due to the finest pedigree horses of our past records whose bloodline can still be traced.


On an average we cover 35 kms to 45 kms in a day, starting in the morning after breakfast with rest and lunch on the way. We take great care to choose beautiful location and secluded places with panoramic views of dams, lakes, riverbeds and fields for our mid-day halts. As we reach the chosen place, our backup will be at service with grooms and attendants to take care of our guests. Our trained chef creates an element of culinary surprise and serves delcious, fresh cooked traditional Rajasthani cuisine, yet care is being taken to adjust the taste as per the guests's preferences.


Note - These are the regular itineraries, one can change as per their preferences
