The undulating sand dunes are ideal for ballooning buffs. People can even travel short distances between towns or historic resorts in these hot air balloons. The best, of course, is to coast over fairs such as Pushkar, or Beneshwar or Nagaur in a hot-air balloon.
A sport that is begging to be tried out in Rajasthan, with its open, sandy countryside, it is considerably complex to organise and expensive to operate. However, should your operator be able to put all the machinery in place, it could provide another facet of excitement to your visit to Rajasthan.
If you thought the Himalayas or the Ghats are the only places where trekking is possible, you obviously need to re-think your options, for the hilly areas of Rajasthan provide several days of ideal trekking opportunities. The Mewar belt with the Udaipur-Kumbhalgarh-Chittaur combine, or the area around Mount Abu, or the Sariska-Alwar-Amber belt is best for trekking. Winter is the best time for trekking, though the monsoon months provide romantic, green gateways.
Horse & Camel Polo
Considered the most prominent and elite sports, polo has always been popular in Rajasthan. Horse polo is taken more serious and is played by professional teams with thoroughbred horses. Camel safari provides more amusement and is unique to Rajasthan.
Kite Flying
The Rajputs have always been passionate about flying kites and there are clubs in various cities where this sport is ardently practiced. An international kite flying competition is held in Jaipur, which adds to the fervor. You can buy a couple of colorful kites and join the Rajasthani people in this zestful activity.
Regular boating, of course, has been offered at several places in Rajasthan, whether on the lakes in Udaipur, or at places such as Siliserh lake near Alwar. Such activities are possible in most lakes in Rajasthan. However, should you wish to introduce boating in other lakes, whether paddle, motor, row or sail, you will have to cart your own boats.
Elephant Polo
Nepal and Rajasthan are the only two places where polo is played on elephant-back. Though not a serious sport, it attracts the international media because of the oddity of a fast game played from the backs of pachyderms who can hardly move as fast in the confined space of a stadium. It is, however, amusing to watch. Though elephant polo too can be specially organised on request, competitions are arranged annually at Jaipur’s Chaugan during Holi (February-March).
