Bishnoi Village Tour

Bishnoi Village Tour

A must have experience is the Bishnoi Village Safari that tours through the quaint and small village near the city of Jodhpur. There can be two derivations of the word “Bishnoi”. One relates to the Hindu god, Vishnu. The other broken into ‘bish’ and “noi” meaning twenty and nine respectively. This refers to the twenty nine principles that Bishnoi’s follow. Bishnoi village safari is a must include in your Rajasthan village tours.

The Bishnoi tribe is well known for animal and plant conservation. These villagers protect their soil from erosion by planting fodder for their cattle. Being able deft agriculturists and shepherds, the people from here are also famous for their block printing work. Not only that, many of the village people have made a mark in fields like Information Technology and Defence.

Most of them though, are still attached to their own land. Bishnoi people are great with clay and are a master in this art. But, unfortunately, pottery is slowly dying because many villagers are looking at other lucrative and better-earning professions.

On your way to these villages, you will notice Chinkaras and other wildlife roaming freely. If you are lucky enough, you might even spot cranes on your way to the village area. The terrain leading to the Bishnoi villages is usually rugged but you will find a few patches of greenery on the desert.

You can travel to this village on a jeep or camel safari. The real highlight of Bishnoi Village Safari is a homestay in the village for one night. You must understand that this village is not very large, in reality; they have small hamlets known as dhannis.

The havelis and baolis were constructed during this time by the wealthy merchants and have beautiful paintings decorating the walls.

I am so glad to share my thrillophilia reviews of Udaipur Trip.It was a wonderful experience for the day. Driver was quite polite and took us to all the places mentioned in the tour guide. Even the tour organiser was quite helpful in arranging the cab as it was a last minute booking. This trip will be remembered for a long time and will surely recommend it to others (infact already recommended)

It is a great deal. Beautiful place to stay. Owner Mr. Mahaveer is very humble and helpful person. Food was tasty & ample. The provided unlimited mineral water for us as and when required. Camel safari was also good & enjoyable. We enjoyed true Rajasthani folk cultural program at night. It was diwali on that particular day. They had arranged some in-house fireworks. Dark starlit sky, campfire, fireworks, folk music & wines - the whole ambiance was ecstatic. Overall a very good & comfortable stay. Only thing I would like to remind you that the region where the camp is located is named Osiyan. Here, you won't find complete desert like Jaisalmer. It is more like a terrain covered with thorny bush. Sand dunes are limited though the camel will take you to a nearby one. But, it's not a fault of owner. You will get compensated with their warm & humble hospitality.
"Desert camping in Jaisalmer remains highlights of your memories ????\nNice Food, Places, Scenic place..\n"
