Experiencing the culture of the Bishnoi community is a vital part of any leisure trip to Rajasthan. The Bishnoi Village tour comprises four villages spanned across four hours, where one can absorb and witness the authentic traditions and lifestyles of rural Rajasthan, a continuing tribute to the original way of life present in Marwar. This tour spans an average of 6 hours, allowing travellers to witness the simplicity and peace of a time forgotten. As Bishnois are staunch protectors of the environment, many animals and birds are seen naturally coexisting in and around the areas of the villages. A rare sight in the rest of the world, it is quite delightful to look at these creatures go about their daily routines unencumbered by the worry of being hunted or run over.
The full tour package includes five significant stops designed to help travellers understand the history and culture that has shaped the Bishnoi tribe to what we see today. Common rural occupations like sheep-herding, weaving, and pottery are practised here, and visitors to the villages have the opportunity to view, learn and purchase these finely-crafted products manufactured in these areas. The tour also includes a visit to Khejarli, site of the Khejarli massacre where 363 Bishnois lost their lives trying to save the forest, and the breathtaking Guda village, a glorious location perfect for an Instagrammable moment, with the natural scenery being complemented well with the local biodiversity.
