Rajasthan is bisected by the Aravalli hills, dividing it into two distinct landscapes, west is the Thar Desert and the other is the region to the east of the Aravallis, which is more rain-fed and hospitable. A good traveller is one who is willing to experiment and is constantly trying to expand his horizons. Instead of the major cities, try out these for a change and you wont regret it.

Interestingly Barmer borders Jaisalmer district in the north, Pali and Jodhpur district in the east and Pakistan in the west. Aneri Shah tells HolidayIQ, "we went to Kiradu temples which are 30 km away. The thing I missed is that Barmer has a railway station about 80-90 km away from where you can see the Indo-Pak border."

Shekhawati-style heritage Havelis are mesmerising, out of which some have started renting them out to tourists in winters.
