HolidayIQ Traveller Vandana Sinha says, “Dal pakwan, lal maans & ghotma (a sweet) are some staple dishes that you must try in Jaisalmer. Ladies could lose themselves to shopping at the market near the fort.”

Best Time: Visit Jaisalmer between the months of October and February. If visiting in January, witness the Desert Festival held for three days.

HolidayIQ Traveller Sahana Sharma says, “Nestled in the womb of nature and the sky adorned with the majestic Himalayas, Muteshwar is a perfect honeymoon getaway. Do not miss to buy chocolates from Choco-House at Mountain Trails.”

Into the wilderness, lies an idyllic town laden with fruit orchards and flower beds. Instead of discovering the destination, you can prefer to lie down on a hammock and soak in the peace and quiet. Or, bond while you are rock climbing or rappelling on the Chauli Ki Jial.
