Description

Discover the rich culture and traditions of Rajasthan on this private half-day Bishnoi Village tour from Jodhpur. Visit the Bishnoi Village Camp and Resort with a private guide and learn of traditional Indian crafts such as leather embroidery and pottery. Learn of the village’s history at the site of the Kahejarli massacre, and watch native antelope and gazelle on the banks of Guda Bishnoi Lake. Afterward, visit the Salawas weavers’ village — where skilled artisans create colorful rugs the old-fashioned way. This 4-hour tour includes round-trip travel from your Jodhpur accommodation.

Following a morning pickup at your centrally located Jodhpur hotel, meet your private guide at 8:30am and take a seat in your vehicle to begin your private 4-hour tour. Then, head to the Bishnoi Village Camp and Resort — a community of craftspeople working to keep Rajasthan’s traditional past times alive.

On arrival, see potters moulding soft clay as they have for centuries, and perhaps give it a try yourself. Watch camel-herders, leather-embroiderers, and craftspeople ply their artisan trades, and visit the site of the Kahejarli massacre — where local Bishnoi woman Amrita Devi laid down her life to protect the village from Maharajah Abhay Singh of Jodhpur many years ago.

Continue on to Guda Bishnoi Lake — where native antelope and gazelle roam in their natural habitat and birds drink from the cool waters. Capture the natural scenery on camera, then continue on to the Salawas weavers’ village.

Here, watch weavers at work producing cotton or wool rugs the traditional way, and admire the myriad blends of colour they create. At approximately 12:30pm, return to your Jodhpur hotel to conclude your tour.
