With home journey booming in a giant manner due to covid, increasingly more folks, together with myself are all the time looking out for these untouched, well-kept secret locations that we are able to escape to away from the town and uncover extra concerning the land that we reside in. Which is how I found Vilasa Luxury, a journey portal that creates and curates bespoke journey itineraries only for you that cater to your tastes and journey preferences. I used to be taking a look at discovering extra about Rajasthan despite the fact that I’ve visited it so many instances earlier than and boy did they ship! My good friend and I had a tremendous highway journey from Delhi to Dera Vilage, Kalakho after which onwards to Dera Dune, Jamba and we obtained to see Rajasthan in a totally new mild – proper from the heat of the folks, to the middle-of-nowhere areas we obtained to see, to the meals we ate and ofcourse the completely good experiences we had been whisked away on. We got here again so refreshed!
We began with Dera Vilage at Kalakho which is a couple of 6 hour drive from Delhi. Nestled in an obscure location on the map, the property is in the midst of gourd plantations that get visited by hyenas at nights and witness the native farmers firing their air-guns within the air to scare them away. With 16 cosy cottages, Dera Village virtually jogged my memory of the instances I loved the Infantry Officer’s Messes again when my father was nonetheless serving within the Military – a detailed knit household vibe, lush inexperienced lawns with an out of doors bar setup, choices to play badminton, a pool room outfitted with a gorgeous fire for cold winter evenings and a typical eating space for all of the company to collect and eat collectively. I LOVED it!
I need to make a particular point out of how unbelievable the meals at each the Clement Retreats properties was – they principally use contemporary, natural produce grown in their very own farms surrounding the properties whereas the remaining is obtained domestically to assist the neighbouring farmers. It reminds you of yummy ghar-ka-khaana with unmatched freshness whereas on the similar time introducing you to typical Rajasthani dishes and preparations that you could be by no means have heard of. Good!
Dera Dune, Jamba is one other 8 hour drive from Dera Village however can be simply accessed through Jodhpur when you want flying. Once more, positioned smack in the midst of nowhere, atop a sand dune, with 16 cottages and beautiful 360 diploma views of the land round, you get to witness some spectacular Rajasthani sunsets, have stunning areas everywhere in the property to loosen up by your self, atone for some studying and a beautiful pool as properly!
We additionally obtained to expertise some wonderful locations like close by salt pans in a village known as Baap, an area potter who opened up his residence to us, visitng a weaver’s residence the place he and his spouse hand weave essentially the most on-trend rugs, witnessing 1000’s of Demoiselle Cranes flying in from Mongolia to cease over in Khichan to feed on Jowar that’s saved for them in a secure enclosure to guard them and assist them on their extremely lengthy migratory journey and ending our stick with a desert camel safari and a gorgeous sundowner (with the perfect banana bread you ever had, no jokes). Can’t wait so that you can see the beautiful pics from this expertise with Vilasa Luxury and The Clement Retreats.
It was nothing wanting phenomenal to witness these 1000’s of Demoiselle Cranes in Khichan early morning to come back feed and take a brief break earlier than flying off of their wonderful arrow formed formations.
