OTHER HIGHLIGHTS
1) Marwari Homestay: Stay in authentic round huts with thatched straw roots and mud walls, which have beautiful tribal paintings made by the host family itself. These cottages have attached western toilets. The homestay is so spacious that one can sit under Banyan tree or hang out in their courtyard too.

2. Bishnoi Village Safari: Bishnois are highly dedicated towards conserving trees and wild animals. In the past, they have even laid their lives to protect trees. Unlike other Hindu communities, they cremate their dead, instead of burning them, to save wood.

3. Block Printing & Pottery: Try your hands at pottery and block printing, and closely interact with the artisans. It is so remarkable to see that even 30 years old blocks are flawlessly used to print the vibrant bed sheets and dress materials.

4. Wildlife: Watch some wild animals while playing/ relaxing in their natural habitats during the safari. Many species of desert animals inhabit this region such as Antelopes, Gazelle, Dumessille Crane, Rabbits, Blue Bulls, Migrated Birds, Peacocks, etc.

5. Traditional Dressing: Wear the traditional Marwari dress and jewelry to look like a native! 

6. Cooking Class: Get a cooking class from our brilliant Marwari ladies.

7. Marwari Folk Music & Dance: Nothing can be melodious to your ears & soul than listening to artists playing Rawanhatta, which is an ancient bowed violin. Once prevalent in many parts of India, these days Rawanhatta is played only by Marwaris and Mewads.

8. Sunrise/ Sunset Trek: The village has so many spots from where you can see the breathtaking sunrise and sunset. These are going to be really short treks which will involve hiking a small hill (~ 1km) to see the breathtaking views.
