Trekking on Mountains in Rajasthan

Trekking is one of the most famous adventure sports in Rajasthan. The mountain ranges of Rajasthan promise breathtaking and exciting trekking trips. The rugged beauty of these lofty mountains attracts travelers and tourists from all over the world.
Lying in the west of India, the topography of Rajasthan varies from sand-dunes of the desert to the lofty hill ranges of the Aravallis which makes Rajasthan a trekkers paradise.
Trekking and Rock Climbing  
The aravallis in all their different moods provide excellent trekking and rock climbing activities. Mount Abu and kumbhalgarh are two popular spots where the trekker can let himself go. The chance to study the flora and fauna, animal and bird life and get away from the usual crowded tourist spots attracts countless trekkers.
Winter is the best time for trekking, though the monsoon months provide romantic, green getaways. It is best to trek in a small group, and carry only basic necessities, since provisions can be bought along the way, but do ensure a supply of bottled water. Trekkers can choose a camp in the open countryside, though there are likely to be quaint, personalized hotels available in most areas. Trekking can be along established routes, though a more exciting option may simply be to chart ones own trails, moving practically as one likes. There is ample space for camping under starlit rights or in the Dak Bungalow and Forest Rest House depending on the tourists preference.
