Escape the confines of the city walls and immerse yourself in the rural life of Rajasthan on this private bike tour and visit to a local family. You'll also have the opportunity to get up and close with India's sacred animal in a truly 'under-the-skin' experience by taking care of some of the cows on the farm.
We’ll pick you up from your hotel and take you into the Rajasthan countryside, where you’ll embark on your bespoke Jaipur rural cycle tour, setting off into the rugged terrain through fascinating villages that provide you with a glimpse of age-old cultures and traditions, kicking up dust as you explore deep into this arid landscape.
The Jaipur rural cycling tour is an opportunity to get off the beaten track and admire the idyllic Rajasthan countryside, whilst getting in touch with rural village life and nature.
You’ll zip through the morning bustle, and pay homage at a Hindu temple, beautiful in its peaceful rural setting and place of worship for villagers for miles around. You’ll experience, first-hand, the daily lives of the villagers and get to see a side to India that most tours overlook.
You can enjoy a sit-down and a chat with a local family over a cup of hot, refreshing tea, helping you get under the skin of this culture to see what life in the hamlet is really like. Humble, friendly and hospitable, the locals will be ready to answer any of your questions and are always prepared to describe their wholesome lifestyle to newcomers.
We then take the tour to the largest cow ranch at Hingonia, home to over 20,000 cows and a hive of activity stirring up dust clouds as these sacred animals wander through their paddocks. Learn how the ranches work, take the opportunity to feed and take care of the mother animal, a truly humbling experience when you understand the reverence with which the Hindu people regard these cows.
To finish the tour, we will drop you off back at your hotel in central Jaipur.
