Jodhpur is one of the must-see destinations in all of Rajasthan. Described by the Time Magazine as "Asia's best fort," the Mehrangarh Fort steams like a vast ocean liner through the sea of blue houses in the old quarter of Brahmpuri. Flying Fox provides you with the best view of the magnificent Mehrangarh Fort, as we fly you out to the City Wall for a perspective of Jodhpur across Rao Jodha Park- that stands unaltered even with the passage of several centuries.
Chokelao Garden- where the Flying Fox booking office is located- is one of Rajasthan's undiscovered treasures; an oasis of lush lawns, shady trees and fragrant flower borders: a haven from the desert sands of Marwar, literally the "land of death."
The Chokelao Palace- which overlooks the garden- has just been restored, and serves daily lunches and drinks. You can dine by candlelight on the rooftop (by appointment only), which most certainly makes for one of the most romantic spots for a meal in the country.
For booking details, please contact our Delhi Office on +91 98109 99390 or +91 11 4100 3787. You can also call our resident Site Manager on 0291 254 6927 or 0800 391 5989.
The museum in Mehrangarh Fort is well worth visiting - look out for the sword of Mughal Emperor Akbar and the magnificent gold howdah in which the Maharaja used to ride on his elephant. The gardens and restaurant at nearby Balsamand Lake Palace also provide a great side trip from the city. And if you love music, make sure you come to the RIFF - the annual music festival hosted every autumn by the Maharaja in the Fort, which has seen big names such as Mick Jagger and Manu Chao.
