Insider’s Tips

  • Chhatra Sagar and Jawai Leopard Camp are operational from October to March.
  • Every year around October, Jodhpur hosts the RIFF festival, recognised as one of the world’s best international music festivals. The festival brings together interlinked musical strands to create three full days of programme revolving around the exceptional variety of Rajasthani traditional and global roots music.
  • From mid-December to mid-January heavy fog descends over north India. Expect delays/cancellation of flights/trains and disruptions in the itinerary during this period.
