At Lets Trip Cycle Tours, we accommodate your needs, your wants, and your longing of the perfect local cycling experience. It is an activity designed for people looking for adventure around the historic PINK CITY of Jaipur. We start this cycling tour from "Ghat Ki Guni" which is a narrow alley between the Aravali range dotting East side of Jaipur city. It provides access to the areas situated in East of Jaipur & beyond. It is also the starting point of the road that leads to Agra, hence called Agra Road and is approx. 10 kms just outside Jaipur. The Tour starts at 0700 AM, the bicycles will be waiting along with a Safety Vehicle at "Ghat Ki Guni".
We start cycling towards "Kanota" village crossing the countryside along the dry river bed and the traditional brick making factories where the local villagers make bricks out of clay and is the most traditional way to make bricks. Enroute Kanota, we take a pit stop at the Kanota dam for a small photography session along with some Tea and Cookies overlooking the water reservoir, which also serves as a home to a numerous species of birds.
After making this pit stop at the dam, we continue cycling towards Castle Kanota, famously known as "The 2nd best exotic Marigold Hotel". Spread over 8 acres of land, Castle Kanota is truly a magnificent experience. Built in 1872, the Castle is located east of Jaipur. With a built-in Museum and a Library which displays gold work and unique collection of rare books, the castle takes you back to the grandeur of the past. There might be various heritage hotels in and around Jaipur but there is only one - Castle Kanota - with lots of unique qualities and live sign of rural tourism.
During your visit at Castle Kanota, you will discover the secret of the grandeur of the Rajput royalty, when you see the exquisitely decorated walls and ceilings that are fully covered with frescoes and paintings. The period furniture placed all over the hotel is more than a visual delight. After the Heritage tour of the Castle and the Museum with the family itself who still use it as a residence, we end the tour with breakfast overlooking the Exotic Marigold Hotel. We promise to give you an experience that even the locals have not been privy to.
