Another great evening with the people here. Great place to have a rest and escape from the busy life of the cities in Jaipur. If you are in Jaipur do visit this place. Make sure you contact them early since its not a tourist spot and not many people know this place even for local people in jaipur. Thank you... More

Our family selected this activity so that our teenage children could experience farm life in India. We had seen the bustle of the cities and wanted to see how many of the India people live. We were not disappointed. The village is in a fairly remote location so life there is still surprisingly simple. We traveled over bumpy terrain to... More

A traditional Indian village which has retained the customs of many many generations. No electricity, no TV, planting crops, herding animals and close family ties.People are friendly yet they continue their traditional routines. You get a view of the real life of the villagers. You can talk with them and just as you are curious about their traditions they are... More

The journey to the village was simply amazing...a jeep ride up the side of a mountain on a one-lane rough rock road! Meeting the villagers and interacting with them was inspiring. It was humbling to meet them...to learn that their daily lives consist of working to just sustain themselves yet they are smiling and happy and gracious. We were offered... More

A perfect place to escape the city life and go live the simple village life with no traffic noise and phone signals. Russirani village is located on a hilltop surrounded by Aravali mountains. It is roughly 100km from Jaipur which comes before Alwar. It is popularly known for its Abhaneri step well (8th century marvel) and 10th century Harshat Mata... More

One of the best experiences we've had in India. Rusirani is an eyeopening trip back in time to a few centuries ago. There is no running water, no electricity, no modern amenities. Sheltered from the modern world, most people have lived here their entire lives. It's amazing to watch them interact, go about their daily tasks, tend to their animals,... More

If you feel that India is to busy, go here and feel the relaxed, calm environment of Rusirani village. Although the road here is a bit tough, but we really enjoy our trip there.

The village tour was honestly the best experience my wife and I had the entire time we were in India. The people were lovely, showing us their amazing village and sharing some excellent food. I truly wish I have a chance to return in a few years. The people were kind, the sights were incredible, and the village was fascinating.... More
