Exploring India is not a rare desire. More than 6 million travelers from all over the world land at International Airports of India just to experience the rich culture of the vibrant country. And most of these travelers are interested in visiting Rajasthan, which is the only royal state of India.
Rajasthan was once known as Rajputana, a name given to the states of current Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. In Rajputana, there were more than 30 kings with their palaces and forts. But after the 1947 independence, these Maharajas lost their power to collect tax, but they turned their forts into museums and palace into luxury hotels. And because of these forts turned museum and palace turned hotels, Rajasthan is one of the top two tourist attractions in India.

Below are some insider view from Chetram Voyages on how and when to explore Rajasthan.
How to explore Rajasthan?
In Rajasthan, one can explore the state by flights as Rajasthan has major airports in cities like Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur. But the cost of traveling by air becomes too costly as apart from Jaipur, no other cities get a high number of flights from major cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, etc.
Second option to explore the state of Rajasthan is by train. All the key cities are well connected with train network. A piece of advice – always book trains that are express trains.
Third and final options is to travel Rajasthan by road. As Rajasthan gets a high number of foreign and domestic travelers, both central and state government has done a remarkable job to develop National & State Highways. The cost of traveling by road is not as expensive as flights but demands little more than the train.
Best months to explore Rajasthan?
As Rajasthan is a dry state or desert state, it is advisable to plan a holiday in the months from August to March. Many domestic travelers visit cities like Jaipur and Udaipur as they are quite close from cities like New Delhi, Ahmedabad, etc. So even in the off-season, which is from the months of April to July, weekends are full of domestic travelers.
