I just returned from the most incredible adventure of culture, humanity & safaris. Tanuj Choudhary prepared my travel itinerary and it was filled with diversity and flexibility. When the Canadian Embassy advised for me to return back to Canada as soon as possible due to the pandemic Coronavirus, Tanuj promptly assisted me with all the internal flight and hotel arrangements. My driver, Nand was extremely polite & assisted in whatever I needed. His professionalism & expert driving skills was outstanding.I highly recommend Rajasthan Four Wheel Drive for the individualized and safe travel. Thank you for being an instrumental part of my journey. I am humbled and blessed to experience life in India.
Udaipur Haldighati Tour
The picturesque lake built by Maharana Udai Singh II after founded the city. Hills, palaces, temples, bathing ghats and embankments, surround this lake.
This is the largest place complex in Rajasthan. A majestic architectural marvel towering over the lake on a hill surrounded by crenelated walls, it is a conglomeration of courtyards, pavilions, erraces, balconies, corridors, and rooms. The main entrance is through the triple-arched gate, the ‘Tripolia’ with eight marble porticos.
Later you will be taken for an excursion tour visiting Haldhighati.
Haldighati is an important historical site in the context of Rajasthan, India. Actually, Haldighati is a mountain pass in the Aravalli range connecting districts of Rajsamand and Pali in Rajasthan. The place is at a comfortable distance of 40 km from the city of Udaipur.
Haldighati extends as a thrilling tourist attraction that flares the merciless battlefield. A single thought of those courageous soldiers standing on the exact lands where they fought, send chills down one’s spine. Haldi Ghati captures major attention because the terra firma made the battlefield to the legend, Maharana Rana Pratap and his loyal horse, Chetak. The place gives a nostalgic feeling as this was the same place where Chetak, the heroic mount of Rana Pratap, breathed his last after leaving his master to a safe place.
At a distance of around 4 km from the battlefield, a cenotaph (chattri) is built in pure white marble. This cenotaph is dedicated to the gallant horse Chetak as a sign of respect and admiration. The bloody battle of Haldighati has been captured an inescapable place in the History of India. The battle has been known for ages in murals and ballads. In the words of Col. James Todd (a British author), Haldighati has been referred to as ‘Thermopile of Mewar’.
Close to this place, you can visit Balicha village that is famous for its terracotta crafts. Badshahi Bagh is another place that is renowned for ‘Chaitri-Gulab’. Here you can find original rose water and ‘Gulkand’ (Jam made from Rose petals) that has immense medicinal value and really tastes good. Thus, Haldighati is a place of interest for the people who value history and respect the heroes of India for their priceless efforts.
Later in the evening drive back to Udaipur.
“We do hope the flavor of India will remain on your taste buds for all times to come and hopefully would kindle an indelible fondness for the country and her people; Thank you for being our guest, and as we say in India Please Come back Soon”
I actually went to India in late 2018 and used the service from four wheel drive to visit several places in Rajasthan. My driver named Narwal gave my friend and me a very lovely service. The most impressive thing is that every restaurant he took us to, served the best food ever. I really enjoyed that trip and have been thinking of it lately. Anil also coordinated the service for us very well. I hope things will get better from the pandamic soon and hope to visit India again. I also hope that Anil and Narwal are doing well.
