Nestled in the in the Hadoti region of Rajasthan in northwest India lies the mystical Bundi. High above the city’s palace lies an abandoned fort with baoris (stepwell reservoirs); overgrown by vegetation and prowled by macaques, you can explore as you please often in spooky isolation. You can also stay in former royal elephant stables, in basic accommodation run by the kindest of family men Raj. Be sure to take the bumpy hour rickshaw ride to Bhimlat Waterfalls for a swim.
