Come winter, people engross in kite flying, loud music and food on their roof tops. However, this is a festivity that refers to ‘Makar Sankranti’, or the kite flying festival that scientifically marks the beginning of warmer and longer days. With hundreds of kites and aerial wars fought over rooftops, a tiny sliver of the Indian spirit resides in the 'patang' and kite flying is an absolute must do today! To see how one whole city can drop everything just to be able to tug at the 'manjha' and cut their opponent’s kite, just climb on to the terrace and watch the war of the Kites for yourself.

There is no better way to take in the magnificence and the beauty of the Amber Fort other than from the mountains themselves. Built in 1952 by Raja Man Singh in the midst of the beautiful Aravalli mountain range, a unique trek to the Amber fort is a 'must do' while visiting the princely state of Jaipur. This adventurous experience of breathing in the Amer fort is a way that neither tourists nor locals ever get a chance to take. Our naturalist guide will take you off the beaten track on a journey through the Aravalli’s, where you’ll be blown away by gorgeous landscapes, untouched paths and so many scenic viewpoints in the early morning sunlight along with a lavish spread of breakfast set in a rustic environment with the luxury of privacy. A fitting start to a year full of adventure and new possibilities ahead.
Happy new year! Team - Thingstodo

One of the greatest pleasures of travel is taking in gorgeous scenery not normally encountered in daily life, and at things to do, we let you savor these views! Experience the ideal combination of a gorgeous sunset along with an uninterrupted view of the city of Jaipur at the Nahargarh fort at a height of approximately 700ft! While the Nahargarh fort overlooks the skyline by daylight hours, the fort creates a spectacular view when floodlit nocturnally. Breathe in this glorious panoramic and uninterrupted view of the city, watch the sun go down accompanied by a sun-downer while spending some reflective time with yourself.

Block printing originated almost 350 years back, a traditional craftsmanship that has been passed down through generations. Traditional block printing is done with wooden blocks and natural dyes. It can take days even weeks to complete a single piece of fabric. Originated from Sanganer, a village just outside of Jaipur, block printing is a practice of dipping hand made wooden stamps into ink and posting it on to a fabric as many times as required. Join us for an afternoon of hands-on block printing workshop and a behind the scenes look at the processes of this age old tradition that we have designed specially for you!

The royal history and Polo are synonymous in Jaipur, where Maharaja Sawai Man Singh II made an international splash in the world of professional polo. The polo-loving Maharaja with a 10-goal handicap led his team to victory at the 1933 world cup. Since then, generations of fierce and talented Polo players have emerged from Jaipur, and it is without a doubt the hub of Indian Polo. Join us, regardless of your age or riding experience, for an activity of horse riding as well as arena polo at a private farm in the city of Jaipur where professional polo players practice and breed their polo ponies. It is the perfect place for horse lovers to get an in-depth look at traditional horsemanship and spend an afternoon riding with the experts. From getting into the saddle, holding the reins and even becoming comfortable around horses, our trainers move at your pace and are with you every step of the way.

The festival of Diwali is synonymous to the worship of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth in her most benevolent mood, fulfilling the wishes of her devotees. In-fact it is the only time of the year the goddess is worshiped. According to legend, the Goddess is believed to have been created from the churning of the ocean, therefore a special 'pooja' is performed to worship her on this day. 'Lakshmi Pooja' is a Hindu religious festival that falls on 'amavasya' and performed on the day of Diwali. Adherents show reverence to the Goddess Lakshmi by placing oil lamps outside their homes to welcome the Goddess. Devotees believe, the happier Lakshmi is with the visit, the more she blesses the family with health and wealth.
