India is incredible, and our hiking trip confirmed this once more. If you have one day (or more) to spend in Udaipur, this experience is not too be missed!

We hired a couple of bicycles to go to Krishna ranch for a stay at the country side. With some hesitation, we left Khumba Palace, the hotel run by Francine and Dinesh in the old city centre of Udaipur. This is such a great place to be that it is difficult to leave (we can recommend Khumba Palace too by the way - especially when you love to eat delicious food, being served very friendly and FAST and not expensive, and when you like to relax in a garden with view on the city palace).

Krishna Ranch is owned by the same couple and located about 4 km out of Udaipur. The place is really beautiful. We saw peacocks and many birds. Our daughter (12 years old), could not stay away from the little goats, so cute! And the dogs, and little calf and chicken, and the beautiful horses!
To enjoy the country side Dinesh took us for a one-day hike. This was a breath-taking walking experience. Very relaxed though, we stopped wherever we wanted and had enough time to enjoy every bit of it. It is amazing how different the landscape is just outside the city: we crossed small streams, small villages, hills and desert land and marble grooves (is that the right word?). We were offered a very good lunch half-way and at the end we were picked up by a van who took us back to Krishna Ranch were we stayed for the night.

The cottages are beautifully decorated - not too much, very much in style with the environment - the views from the windows are wonderful and the beds were great!
Narani prepared dal bhati for us, she is a great person and made us feel very welcome. Try it yourself!

The ranch is not at all far from the city in terms of distance but is in another world in terms of relaxation. I stayed for 2 nights, and would love to return. The owner is dedicated to his work and goes out of his way to learn what guests want to do during their stay. He took me on a guided horseback ride through the local villages and back trails which was delightful. We explored some of the village on foot as he described the local customs and history. The next day he arranged for a driver to take me to the Kumbhalgarh Fort as well as the government shops. He even offered to arrange side trips to Peshwar and Jaipur. My room was huge and clean, and had many windows to let in the light. The bathroom as spotless and modern, and there was plenty of hot water in the shower. Meals come with the price of the room, and the cook does a nice job in food prep. All in all a restful haven.

I took a 5 day safari starting from Udaipur, ending at Ranakpur with a transfer back to Udaipur.
I have never seen more immaculately kept horses. Ever. They are loved and cared for by Dinesh and his men in all aspects, well fed, well shoed, well groomed and well ridden. These Marwari horses bred and stabled at Krishna ranch are a breed found only in India. They are svelte hipped, crescent eared, long haired, tall and energetic creatures, and amazingly soft to touch.They are beautiful to look at, and a dream to ride. Bred as war horses, their stamina and willingness to go is evident from the start.
The five day safari with Dinesh and his men through small villages in and around the Aravelli ranges near Udaipur took us through crisp, clean fields of wheat, mustard seed and sugarcane, flooding the landscape in green cascades over dark streaks of stone terrace walls. A flash of hot pink in the figure of a woman bent over her work, bright blue skies and trees submerged in the flood of perfect greens and gold would delight the eye wherever it looks. Even the more spartan dusty landscape of the scythed mountainsides provides fodder for the eyes: a lone tree on the crest of a hill, standing still and bent, silhouetted, bonsai like, against the stark white of a greying sky.
There is something age old and timeless about riding through unexplored lands, past rivers and mountains, valleys and groves, where stones are loose, trees embrace and fields of flowers open up the skies in welcome of a weary and wonderstruck traveller on a horse, just moseying along.
Such were my days on safari with Dinesh, walking, trotting and cantering along, day to day, camp to camp.
Camps were well set up, mostly by rivers, and very comfortable. Fresh cooked food every night, fresh brewed chai on arrival makes for a treat after a long day's ride. And hit washing water on demand was for me, a simple, very much appreciated luxury.
Dinesh and Francine were extremely accommodating of my itinerary requests which took me from Udaipur to a puja at a temple in Jargaji, to Kumbarlgarh to visit the magnificent fort and through the Kumbarlgarh sanctuary, culminating in a visit to the intricately carved Jain temple in Ranakpur.
It was, for me, a trip if a lifetime, that is, until I return for another, and another...
Thank you Dinesh and Francine, Suresh, Jagdish, Maden, Bagu and Ragu for a wonderful adventure. And thank you, Shapna, for moving like a dream.

If you are tired of cities and are looking for a little bit of Indian nature, this place is for you. Everything is perfect about it: rooms, cleanliness, staff, service. Highly recommended!

Walking to the countryside and around the lacs or just chilling out in the Terrace of tour bungalow are what I liked the most.

We also met some great people there and had a lot of fun during meals. Food is very good, it was the best breakfast we had in India!
