Discovery of village Khempur; near a small splendid yet serene
Overview of the destination
Khempur village came upon us suddenly; a cluster of rural dwellings making up a typical random village. An ancient feudal mansion dominates the village, the front looks over stunningly beautiful landscapes that stretch to a lake (where they put up tents for camping) and distant hills where even mute monoliths appear to have a life of their own! This is the land not swamped by hordes of tourists and retains virgin loveliness, Time stands still and tranquility reigns—induce you to look for life afresh.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping
Khempur exudes historical ambience and graced with breathtaking surroundings. ravla has lofty terraces, open courtyards (some with shaded squares), sprawling gardens, manicured lawns, domes, arches, canopied balconies transport one back in time. lakeside has diverse collection of flora, migratory birds etc would please nature lovers. Ravla also believes that there should be an element of culinary surprise. As an honoured guest, you will be offered one of their special homemade aperitif wines to keep you in high spirits. At Mavli one may patronize village dhabas/restaurants, the handicrafts, terracotta stuff.

Activities & things to do
Khempur is a haven for horse lover. The stable houses high pedigree Marwari and Kathiawari horses. One can enjoy camping at the lakeside. One can go around Mavli and shop local stuff at throwaway prices like handicrafts (same might cost one more than the double the amount).

It is on the airport road, 25kms off from Udaipur airport at the turn of Mavli. 50km distance from Udaipur railway station.
