Jaipur is mostly known for its historic forts and palaces. However, if you are seeking an off-beat experience of the city, the hikes and treks near Jaipur are the city’s hidden gems. These trails will lead you away from the hustle and bustle of the cities into the lap of nature with the most rewarding views of beautiful landscapes. We’ve listed a few below:
Nahargarh Fort Trek
Nahargarh Fort trek is also a very popular trek undertaken by trekking groups in Jaipur. However, you can also choose to explore the trail by yourself. The hike includes a characteristic cobbled path. The trail originates from Purani Basti or Garh Ganesh Temple. You should ideally start for the fort early in the morning at about 7 am, or if you prefer an evening walk, 4 pm is the perfect time to start. You will witness the natural beauty of the water streams dotting the path surrounded by natural greenery. The destination of the trek, Nahargarh Fort, is a fine example of ancient Indian architecture. You might recognise certain spots in the fort where a few scenes of the Bollywood film, Rang De Basanti were filmed.
Chulgiri hiking trail is a tad bit more difficult than the treks mentioned above owing to the rustic, naturally carved path that courses through the forests. A steady climb will take you to the Digamber Jain temples in Jaipur. There’s also an option of taking a winding staircase that leads you up to the temples. Either of the paths comes with promising panoramic views of the surrounding hills. Once you reach the top you will be enthralled by the bird’s eye view of the landscape below.
