Things to see and do in Rohet
The region around Rohet is populated by the Bishnoi clan, well known for their sensitivity to ecology. These peaceful people live in small mud hamlets called Dhanis. Join a village safari which gives a glimpse of these special people's lives.
Thanks to the environment conscious Bishnois, the area around is surprisingly rich in wildlife. On a jeep safari, guests may see Neelgais (Blue Bull), handsome but shy Black Bucks, and the dainty Chinkaras. There is also plenty of bird-life including Shikras, Indian Rollers, Black Shouldered Kites, Indian Coursers and Desert Wheatear,
Rohet Garh has some fine stables of Marwari horses. This horse's sensitive but honest disposition and beautiful, free-flowing gait make it a delight to ride. The owner himself schools the horses at Rohet Garh. Guests can therefore enjoy and experience some wonderful riding.
This region of western Rajasthan makes for almost perfect riding country with its semi-arid shrub and bush vegetation, wide open spaces and soft terrain. This is also a great cultural experience, which allows you to get close to the lives of the Rajasthani people. Spotting wildlife is a great bonus too.
Food is excellent here and since its inception, guests have been delighted by it. This inspired the late Thakurani Jayendra Kumari to author a small cookbook. She started informal culinary workshops, which are today run by her daughter in-law, Rashmi Singh. The guests join in on each aspect of the preparation and can finally sample their own efforts.
