Posted on Updated on

Warm greetings to every single reader of Varun’s blog; with the belief that my travel blogs prove useful for you guys, once again I am here with another tourist attraction in India. This time I am going to explore the colorful facets of Udaipur. Located in the western side of Rajasthan, this small city caught my attention when I was in school. The wonderful stories about the forts in Udaipur instantly grabbed my attention.

Udaipur- in love!

Though accountant is a challenging profession, but sometimes it does get a bit mundane. Hence, with the purpose to bring in some fun in life, I headed straight towards Udaipur, along with two best friends of mine. As a matter of fact, this city was established by Maharana Udai Singh II; hence the name. Well, without getting too much into the history, I will be sharing information about the things to do in Udaipur, as per my experience.

Enjoying things to do in Udaipur

During the exploration, it was easy for me to figure out the main specialty of Udaipur, and it lies in the art & craft of this city. Though I have been to several art & craft exhibitions and trade fairs, but they were nothing in comparison to what this city encompasses. When I was strolling in the local streets of Udaipur, I came across a lot of workshops where classes are offered on making various items with just papers!

The handcrafted stationary looked absolutely stunning, and initially it was hard for me and my friends to believe that they were made out of papers! Yes, I did purchase a paper-made purse and a gift box for my sister. For females, mehendi classes were also available.

In the beginning, it never appeared to me that cycling in Udaipur would be so much fun! As per my experience, I would definitely recommend it as one of the best activities to do in Udaipur. The professional cycling guides were really friendly and the journey started from Rao Ji Ka Hata. The ride took us through the beautiful and serene villages and we enjoyed the time thoroughly.

The entire human culture civilized due to travelling. Through travelling, you can experience different culture and learn from each other. As humans, we always crave for a good travel experience. People are always curious to visit new locations.

In today’s world, travel has changed a lot. People can visit one location after another within few hours. It is also a lot more faster and safer than it used to be. The technology has made our travel experience a lot more simpler. Today, many individuals travel just for adventure.

Trekking is one such experience. It allows the traveller to wander around and experience the surroundings. As a trekker, you can explore different areas from a region at your desired pace. However, trekking is not that  easy. Often it can be quite dangerous.

The more you develop your trekking skills and experience, more comfortable you will be during harder treks. However, if you are a beginner, make sure to choose an easy trekking destination. In any adventure activity, safety should be your primary objective. A small mistake from your end can put other’s life in danger.

Few months back, a trekker from Mumbai died in a trekking accident. So, through this blog I intend to offer some of the most effective safety tips for trekkers.

Stay Fit

Trekking is an exhilarating activity. So, make sure you are fit enough to join a trekking club. A trekker should have a strong heart, spine, legs, arms, shoulders etc. People with epilepsy, renal ailments, heart conditions and arthritis should avoid such trails. Set goals that are achievable and never try something that is too risky.

Prepare for the trek

I have met many trekkers who are overconfident and consider themselves as superior. These trekkers don’t take training seriously. Such an approach can make their skills rusty. So, i always advise that if you are planning a trek, start training a few months before and get in better shape.

Be Safe

If you like to explore new locations during your trekking expedition, make sure you are moving forward on a safe path that is strong and sturdy and will not collapse.

Leave a note

Always make sure that you notify your family and friends where you are going and with whom. This approach will help you out if there is an accident.

So these were some tips that could help you trek safely.

Shiv Niwas Palace Hotel Udaipur : I got an opportunity to stay in the Shiv Niwas Palace Hotel Udaipur when I was visiting my friend in the city. The hotel is built in the shape of the crescent moon and is an elegant looking building. I especially loved the fact that it was close to the city palace museum and the historic Hindu Jagadish Temple.
