I did read about the Rusirani Village on Tripadvisor and actually this was the main thing I wanted to see when travelling around Jaipur. A big thank you to Girdhari, who did support with translation in the village and did lead me around. I enjoyed especially the time in the school (to interact and play with the children there), as...

On the way from Agra to Jaipur, we stopped about 2/3rds of the way to go on this village tour - a small, cooperatively-run set of communities in the hills. They said that the don't have many families, so especially appreciated seeing us with our 11 and 13 year old sons. Part of the tour fee sponsors girls continuing their... More

If you really want to do something special while visiting Jaipur this is a must. You need all day in order to get there over back country roads as well as have enough time to interact with the village people. There is a fabulous 2000-year-old temple in the village and the people are wonderful. They have been living the same... More

Tired of busy Jaipur with the horns, the traffic jams, the pushing sellers and old forts? Treat yourself with a day to a rural visit and experience the true hospitality of the people of Rusirani village. Yes you can go by yourself and save a couple of bucks, but no, it will by far not be as rich as it... More

I read about the village on Tripadvisor and decided to check it out by myself, since I wanted to have a more authentic experience watching life in the countryside of India. I can say that I am very grateful I did! Being a lone woman traveler, I was always worried about my safety, but as soon as I got picked... More

I've traveled to several villages in my life, but I found this Village to be very organized! By my experiences, this means it is becoming commercialized. By all means, as of now, this is still a meaningful Village to experience. A few things that I found out: (1) I thought it was no communication in the mountains (Found Mr. Bhagirath... More

It's an amazing place, for those who want a different Indian experience. If you intend to visit the school that they have there, will be nice to bring with you, if possible, some pencils and/or notebook, to give to the kids. I'm sure they'll love it and you'll make a difference in the life of them. :D In case you... More

One of the highlights of my trip to India was spending time at Rusirani. I was not sure to go, but I'm really glad I did. The village is around 2.5 hours from Jaipur on the way to Agra, and has a challenging road up and over the hills. My guide, Giri, picked me up in Jaipur in a jeep.... More

I can't put into words how incredible the day spent at Rusirani village was. The drive from Jaipur took just under 3 hours but half way there we changed from an AC taxi to an SUV. On route, we stopped at local baths and temple. The journey was bumpy towards the end as you climb through the hills but the... More
