Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Rajastan

Rajasthan is a wonderful region full of incredible palaces and royal history in India. Located in the northeastern part of the country, Rajasthan’s climate is unforgivingly hot and epitomizes what you would expect of living in the desert. The locals are lovely and get about their every day business among the cows that freely roam the streets, the high desert winds and the craziness of the cars driving through the streets. You could spend years exploring this magnificent part of the world and still not fully know or understand the inner workings of life in these parts.

The major cities to explore within the region of Rajasthan are Jaipur, the capital of the region, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jaisalmer and Pushkar. There are an abundance of hostels within each of these cities for you to stay in at a low cost while you explore the towns. There are also many other smaller villages and cities within Rajasthan that have hostels. It is worth booking in advance in smaller towns to make sure you get a good hostel. In the larger cities, on the other hand, there are so many hostels that if you wanted to chance on showing up spontaneously, you would most likely get a room. This is especially beneficial given the flexibility you may need to adopt when traveling to such a delightfully crazy country such as India. If you are feeling super adventurous, you can even book with a hostel to sleep outside in the desert after a camel trek. Check with your hostel about organizing this as they should have information about it.

Traveling in India can also be difficult because you will have to navigate the public transportation systems. Many of the journeys are quite long; sleeper trains are available at a good price and travel overnight between a lot of the destinations. One of the locals’ favorite hobbies, however, is to rip people off at train stations and lie to them about where to catch the train, so make sure you triple check where you are going and where you need to be to ensure you don't get scammed. And if you do end up being part of someone’s joke, laugh and revel in the fact that this happens to absolutely everybody here at least once. Then trek off to go find a hostel to stay in after you have missed your train and try again the next day with a smile. It is all a part of the adventure!
