Magic of Marwar Horse Tour

About the Experience

Our Magic Of Marwar Horse Tour in India is an unparalleled experience. Feel the unbridled thrill of riding through the arid desert landscape, dunes and rural villages. Witness the natural marvel of thousands of migrating Demoiselle Cranes roosting at Khichan. Follow time-worn camel footpaths to secret picnic spots.

This ride is one that combines the vibrant culture and history of India’s rare Marwari horses. You’ll be supporting empowerment projects like The Pink Rickshaw, a company that employs lower caste women. 

You’ll easily fall in love with spicy deep-fried kachori. Fragrant chai in the shadows of the rising sun will never taste better.

This itinerary allows you to experience ancient Rajasthani traditions, canter, banter and see wild Nilgai antelope and chinkara gazelles! The Great Thar desert will stop you in your tracks. Speaking of tracks, here, leopards roam wild and free! Jump in a Jeep at dawn and dusk in search of the elusive cat.

The Magic of Marwar offers unrepeatable adventure from leopard tracking to tented safari camp accommodations. There’s a dose of pampering too, with four nights spent in boutique hotels! Depending on your selected date (November 2022 or March 2023), you’ll witness the fever pitch of the Pushkar (November) or Balotra (March) Fair–the largest horse and camel trading fairs in Rajasthan!

Hugged by a seemingly unforgiving landscape of granite, caves, kopjes, Acacia scrub forest and sinewy rivers, discovering India’s topography with a team of trusty Marwari horses is an unforgettable, transformative moment.

 

Note: The March 11–23, 2023 tour includes the Balotra Fair and begins in Udaipur (UDR) and departs from Jodphur (JDH). The November 4–16th, 2022 tour beings in Jaipur (JAI) and includes the Pushkar Fair. Simply scroll down on the FULL ITINERARY tab for details and additional information about the Marwari horses. These itineraries are equally incredible and nearly identical outside of the fairs and the order of events!

DAY ONE: ARRIVAL

Note: This itinerary is exclusive to the March 11–23, 2023 departure including the Balotra Fair. This trip begins in Udaipur (UDR) and departs from Jodphur (JDH). Please scroll down for the November 4–16th, 2022, itinerary which includes the Pushkar Fair. The itineraries are nearly identical, outside of the fairs and the order of events.

Plan to arrive in Udaipur by midday for pick-up at the airport and transfer to our hotel. We’ll get into the serene groove immediately with a sunset boat trip around the world-famous Lake Pichola. Fun fact: it’s an artificial freshwater lake!

Udaipur, the “lake city”, spills to the edge of Lake Pichola and the surrounding Aravalli Hills backdrop the city in ochre and purple ridges of the forest. Palaces, temples, havelis and innumerable narrow, crooked, colourful streets are a distinct part of the city’s undeniable charm.

We will congregate at the hotel to transfer by Pink City tuk-tuk to the boat. The ride is a feel-good one as the Pink City company provides employment to lower caste women.

After a brief refresh at our hotel, we’ll share dinner together at an enchanting rooftop restaurant, overlooking the mirror surface of the lake and floodlit City Palace.

  • Driving Time: 1 hour transfer

 

DAY TWO: MARWARI HORSES

In the morning we’ll poke around the City Palace Museum complex and have the opportunity to shop. Lunch will be at the hotel or an authentic roadside cafe, depending on the group’s interest. After, we’ll have a 3-hour road transfer out of the city through the Aravalli Hills to Narlai. 

Late afternoon, we’ll change into riding gear and meet our dashing Marwari horses! We’ll take a late afternoon trail ride (walk/trot orientation) from the hotel to Jodha Stud Farm (where the horses reside). 

When we’re done riding for the day, we’ll be privy to a fragrant home-cooked heritage farm dinner served within the ambience of the stable complex. A special surprise is planned, no spoilers! 

After our unique farm dining experience, we’ll head back to the hotel for an early night in preparation for the miles ahead!

  • Driving Time: 3 hrs
  • Riding Time: 1 hour

 

DAY THREE: RIDE TO DANTIWARA

It’s an early bird 6am start for those who wish to climb the 700 steps up Elephant Hill to watch the buttery sunrise over the foothills of the Aravalli. It’s worth setting an alarm for–tea and biscuits will be served at the top in the marmalade glow of the new day. For those who prefer sunsets, you are welcome to sleep in!

After breakfast, we will have a full day ride (30km/19 miles) to Dantiwara. Passing through rural villages and following a dry riverbed, we’ll ride through the enveloping plains of the Aravalli hills, India’s oldest mountain range. We’ll stop for an elaborate picnic lunch near a temple before making our way back to our lakeside tented safari camp.

  • Riding Time: 6 hrs/30 km (19 miles)

 

DAY FOUR: BALI FOREST 

Today we have a full-day ride to Perwa in the Bali Forest.

Making our way along the bottom of the Aravalli hills south west to the village of Perwa, we’ll pass villages and rural farmsteads, cutting through the smooth volcanic rock formations. We’ll take five in the shade for a long picnic lunch in a shepherds’ village.

After lunch, we’ll ride along a reservoir wall on a high sand track–it’s impossible to not snap dozens of photos. Here, we’ll have the opportunity to maybe spot leopards at sunset, on a hill near our camp outside Perwa.

Jeeps will transfer us to our camp after a glass of spicy chai. After rinsing off the day, we’ll gather for a decadent meal.

  • Riding Time: 6 hrs/30km (19 miles)

 

DAY FIVE: LEOPARD SPOTTING

For those who wish to rise extra early this morning, we’ll have another chance to spot leopards at dawn!

After breakfast (and hopefully non-stop chatter about seeing leopards!), we’ll ride to Jawai and onwards to Jawai Bandh reservoir. Hugged by a landscape of granite, caves, kopjes, Acacia scrub forest and sandy-bottomed riverbeds, the leopards roam wild and free in this area with temples appearing like a mirage in the distance. 

Lunch will be shared in a cozy clay bungalow where a local family will greet us and introduce us to their Rajasthani traditions.

We’ll jump in jeeps in the late afternoon and begin searching for the cats at dusk…that means there’s no time for catnaps! 

Dinner will be served alongside an expansive reservoir. Fret not: experienced security guards will watch over us in case leopards or alligators come a little too close for comfort.

  • Riding Time: 4 hrs/20km (12 miles)

 

DAY SIX: WOMEN’S EMPOWERMENT

After breakfast, we’ll drive to Jodhpur to visit local women’s empowerment initiatives and NGOs.

At Ghoomar in Pali, we’ll learn about the self-help women’s initiative which is supported by an NGO called Srijan (Self-Reliant Initiatives through Joint Action). Ghoomar was founded and continues to operate by enterprising women of the Garasiya tribe. Together, they make and sell pulp from the local fruits.

In Jodhpur, the Sambhali Trust is a non-profit charitable organization whose laser focus is on the development and empowerment of women and girls in Rajasthan.

Lunch will be on the road as we travel to Rohet where we’ll also experience a local delicacy, kachori. This spicy deep-fried snack is one you’ll want to replicate at home!

  • Driving Time: 3 to 4 hours

 

DAY SEVEN: GREAT THAR DESERT 

In the morning, we’ll drive one hour north to Mathania to connect with our beloved Marwari horses again. We’ll mount up on sand dunes and ride until our super scenic lunch at a farmer’s house in the desert. Our horses will enjoy rehydrating drinks from the farmer’s watering hole.

Satiated (both horses and riders), we’ll continue northwest, making our way over the sand and signature pink granite of the area (it was used to build the impressive Meharangarh Fort). We’ll pass small hamlets and farmsteads, taking in the panoramas from the edge of the Great Thar Desert (or Great Indian Desert) of Rajasthan that forms a natural boundary between India and Pakistan.

We’ll stop for a picnic break, stretch and short siesta before heading to our desert camp on the outskirts of Osian. If we’re feeling comfortable and confident, we can canter into camp.

  • Riding Time: 5 hrs/25 km (16 miles)
  • Driving Time: 1 hour

 

DAY EIGHT: DEEP INTO THE SAND DUNES

Today we’ll saddle up for a full-day ride from Osian to Hacra and travel deep into the sand dunes. We’ll pass by thatched roof huts and be immersed in the scrub of resilient desert vegetation and acacia bushes. We may encounter wild Nilgai (a thin-legged Asian antelope), small chinkara gazelle (also known as the Indian gazelle) and curious mongoose as we descend into agricultural farmland and reemerge at the desert’s edge again.

Fun fact: When alarmed, chinkara gazelles stamp their forefoot on the ground and emit a sneeze-like hiss through the nose. Locally, the name Chinkara translates to “the sneezer.” 

We’ll arrive at our tented camp close to the Bishnoi community hamlet of Hacra. Local nature guides will join us when possible to provide more insight into the desert environment and the distinct flora and fauna that surrounds us. Sometimes the camp is visited by joyous locals who are eager to share traditional music and dancing.

  • Riding Time: 6 hrs /30km (19 miles)

 

DAY NINE: DESERT RIDE 

Today we’ll take a full-day desert ride from Hacra to Cullu! We’ll ride north, where the sand may be deeper but your sturdy Marwari horse has an amazing, determined stamina not known in other breeds. They are genuine desert horses and we are riding in the beating heart of the Marwar district, their namesake!

Lunch will be in the cool comfort of a shady spot near a farm. Our afternoon ride through the desert traverses well-traveled camel paths (that goats like to frequent as well). We’ll be on the lookout for gazelles,  climb sand dunes and give ‘er on long canters before returning to the sanctuary of our tented safari camp.

  • Riding Time: 6 hrs/30km (19 miles)

 

DAY TEN: LAST RIDE TO KHICHAN

We’ll have a full-day ride ahead of us from Cullu to Khichan. This is our final day of riding (sigh). We’ll be saying grateful goodbyes to our dedicated grooms, tent wallas and talented cooks.

Having created a strong partnership and connection with our horses, we’ll be able to take full and confident advantage of the open landscape with this establishment of trust. We will pass by several farmsteads and villages and observe a distinct shift in landscape from desert sand to pink rock and rolling farmland. 

We will arrive at Khichan, famous for the arrival of the elegant Demoiselle cranes that roost here during the winter season (October to March). The birds migrate from the Mongolian steppes and at the peak (December to February) their  numbers reach over 10,000 which is quite a mesmerizing sight to witness! 

After heartrending goodbyes to our precious horses, we’ll see them off as they travel home overnight for a well-deserved rest. 

  • Riding Time: 6 hrs/30 km (19 miles)

 

DAY ELEVEN: TLWARA

We’ll have an early morning visit to the nearby Demoiselle crane feeding grounds – what an unmatched sight! The birds will fly over us, dream-like, as we share chai and reflections as the sun rises from the arid earth.

After breakfast with the elegant cranes, we’ll transfer by road through the Thar Desert to the market town of Tilwara. En route, we’ll stop for lunch before entering the fever pitch of Balotra Fair. Situated on the bank and dry riverbed of River Luni (a seasonal river), we’ll witness the annual gathering, competition and heated trading of the hotly anticipated horse and camel fair.

DAY 12: BALOTRA FAIR

We’ll spend a full day absorbing the sights, sounds and smells of one of the most biblical settings or Rajasthan’s rural horse and cattle fair in Rajasthan. From a natural high vantage point, we can sit and watch the riders proudly parade their horses up and down.

Here, we’ll see the elaborate styles of traditional dress (on both horses and people) and throngs of traders who travel from all corners of Rajasthan and the neighbouring states of Punjab, Gujarat and Maharashtra to trade camels and horses.

It’s a full sensory day and unparalleled experience.

DAY THIRTEEN: DEPARTURE

After breakfast, we’ll transfer by road (3 hours) to Jodhpur airport for departures. The last 12 days have been an all-encompassing adventure in the company of handsome Marwari horses, sleek leopards, migrating cranes and the newfound kinship with fellow Wild Women. From the desolate dunes to the riotous Balotra Fair, new spicy bites, comforting cups of chai and the wheee of tuk-tuk rides, what a time it has been!

Heavy hearts will be buoyed by the question, “Where next?”

Move over Uber, we have camels!

We can also visit the Brahma temple and/or take a ride on the nerve-jangling skyline cable car. Yes, there will also be an opportunity to shop and spend some rupees!

For those who experience Pushkar,  it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the dazzling colour, spectacle and carnival of one of the last great traditional melas (fair or Hindu festival). Last-minute, sweat-on-brow trading deals are done before horses and camels depart for another year.

MARWARI HORSE DETAILS

The Marwari or Malani is a rare breed of horse from the Marwar (or Jodhpur) region of India. Known for its inward-turning ear tips, the colours vary between individuals. The height is usually 15.2 to 16.2 hands. Known for their hardiness, the Marwar is quite similar to the Kathiawari, another Indian breed from the Kathiawar region southwest of Marwar. Many breed members exhibit a natural ambling gait. A recent pilot DNA study has revealed that the Marwari are cousins to the Akhal Teke, with some possible Mongolian, Arab and Persian influence over the centuries. They are uniquely adapted to living and working in the desert.

The Rathores, traditional rulers of the Marwar region of western India, were the first to breed the Marwari. Beginning in the 12th century, they espoused strict breeding that promoted purity and hardiness. Used throughout history as a cavalry horse by the people of the Marwar region, the Marwari was noted for its loyalty and bravery in battle. The breed deteriorated in the 1930s when poor management practices resulted in a reduction of the breeding stock, but today, it has regained some of its popularity.

The Marwari is used for light draught and agricultural work, as well as riding and packing. In 1995, a breed society was formed for the Marwari horse in India. The exportation of Marwari horses was banned for decades, but between 2000 and 2006, a small number of exports were allowed. Though they are rare, they are becoming more popular outside of India due to their unique look.
