Candid pictures might be a trend now, but let the truth be told; photographs come out the best in their most natural settings. Rajasthan, one of the most colorful states in India and vibrant with their tradition and culture has been attracting photographers from all around the globe to come and shoot the people going about their daily routine in the most modest ways. Sitting in a tent on the golden sands of Jaisalmer and watching the gentle fire ball resurrect in the horizon, the distant camels forming a silhouette and the wind currents picking up on their tender pace; these are the moments worth a photography tour in Rajasthan. The lack of skyscrapers and concrete in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan makes for one of the ideal backgrounds to go about clicking your perfect award winning shot. Do you remember learning about mirages and the myths that the deserts make you believe is in existence? Rajasthan lets you see for your own eyes how nature plays with light and forms images before you that aren’t really there.
Clicking these myths is an experience in itself. The local markets of Rajasthan exhibiting whole spices like turmeric and red chilies and pepper one side and the artefacts, tapestries, jewellery and leather items, on the other hand, gives you a strong sense of the festival of colors and gives more reasons to encapsulate.

If you are looking for some thrills in Alwar, visiting its “most haunted place” is the best way to fulfil the desire. Bhangarh Fort, on the border of the Sariska Tiger Reserve, has long held its spooky reputation. Though it is a well-preserved fort, the ‘supernatural’ occurrences that seem to occur within its premises tend to ward off many people. If you are eager to explore Alwar in all its facets, haunted and otherwise, a visit to this fort is a must. Do it while the light lasts, since ghosts are said to hang out here at night. Though spooky, Bhangarh Fort is one of the best places to visit in Alwar for some unique memories. Timings: 6 am to 6 pmLocation: Gola ka baas, Rajgarh Tehsil, Alwar, Bhangarh, Rajasthan 301410
This place is the reason Bharatpur is so well-known all over India. Keoladeo Ghana National Park, more commonly known as Bharatpur Bird sanctuary, is one of the must-vist tourist attractions in Bharatpur, and for good reason. The intensity of wildlife that one can experience in Bharatpur is startling. Though most well-known for the hordes of birds that its hosts ear-round, the sanctuary also has a rich variety of flora and fauna, all of which makes the sanctuary a wildly active place throughout the year. The best season to visit this sanctuary is around October- November. Most migratory birds have arrived by then and the chirp and bustle of the place is magnificent. The summer months, when the cranes have begun their beautiful courtship dances, are also interesting months to visit the sanctuary in. There are accommodations inside the sanctuary if you wish to explore the place at all hours. This is definitely one of the necessary places to visit in Bharatpur.
