Ranakpur Hill Resort
Travel Blogs from Ranakpur
Jetzt haben wir die Wüste definitiv hinter uns gelassen. Ranakpur liegt mitten in den Wäldern und hat ein entsprechend mildes, „schweizerisches“ Klima. Die riesige Jain-Tempel-Anlage liegt voll im Grünen versteckt und ist mit seinem Haupttempel mit 1440 Säulen eine der grössten in ganz Indien. Dort waren wir wieder einmal total die …
... a car for 12200 Rupees which sounded a bit expensive although it is around 1200klm round trip. When we walked around the town we spoke to a tour operator who said he could do it for 6500 so we booked with him. You are always dubious about what the car will be like but when we have booked through hotels before you can get **** anyway and the manager makes good money out of it. I remember being in Indonesia with John & Wendy when I booked ...
... at the only shop on the way back to the hotel. Maya bought two packets of biscuits and I, a melted kitkat. We turned to walk back to the car. Maya squealed and threw her new cookie treasures back to the shopkeeper as a pack of black faced monkeys were making a beeline straight for us. We were told that they recognised the packets as being their favourites. Like a sneaky shoplifter we hid the packets in our pockets and coolly walked past the primates. We were smart cookies you ...
... rattan chairs; this is where I am sitting as I write. My roommate is asleep, so I think I'll go take another luxurious shower.
This afternoon we'll head into the nearby hills and visit Bhil tribe villages; tonight some of the Bhil tribes will come and play their traditional music for us. We will eat and drink and dance. I expect I will be offered my nightly gin and tonic with lime (we are told there is no wine in India), and ...
... in. Most of the service has been excellent. Still the cleanliness is always a bit questionable if you are accustomed to U.S. standards. Our driver Ranjit is working out very well so far, which is good because we are stuck with him for the next several days. He's extremely friendly and takes great care and pride in keeping his car in pristine condition. This probably goes for his mustache and hair too.

We had a wonderful time at this resort. Swimming and playing cards at the pool. Great cookies for breakfast and in the evening a nice dinner in the garden and the lawn...delicious our feet on the cool grass (and a bear). The room was large, clean and stylish, the bathroom spacious. Outside the season they have good deals. We loved it.
