India, Alwar Guide (B): Alwar, a Gem in Off the Beaten Track Rajasthan

So, you’ve been to Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur and now you’re looking for something more off the beaten track in Rajasthan? Well, look no further than Alwar. Tucked away in the Rajasthani countryside, Alwar gives you a perfect break from the loud noise of the city.

My friend and I did have our doubts before visiting here. It wasn’t exactly recommended in the India guidebooks. But, in the end, we were pleasantly surprised by what we found and had a hilarious 3 day getaway.

At only three hours away by train from Delhi, it is the perfect little stop for a short weekend break or can provide gateway to start your Rajasthan adventure! You can visit forts, palaces, lakes and even go on a tiger safari from here. So, what are you waiting for?

Alwar is a large district in the Indian state of Rajasthan and so you’ll need to be familiar with where you’re going when planning to stay here. Luckily, Alwar Junction train station provides a central location to arrive in.

By far the cheapest and quickest option is to catch a train from Delhi or the neighbouring city of Gurgaon. It is only around 3 hours away so is a nice and short picturesque journey.
