Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

Rajasthan is known as the desert state. It is largely hot and dry throughout the year, making it a great destination to get away during cold winter months.

Summer in Rajasthan extends from April to June. It’s the hottest season so not ideal for travel, although early April is a good time to get great value for money if you don’t mind the heat. In western Rajasthan temperatures may soar, particularly in May and June, so we'd suggest avoiding Jaisalmer and the Thar Desert at this time.

The monsoon season usually runs from July to September. The temperature drops slightly, and humidity increases. During this period 90% of the rain Rajasthan occurs, although in reality Rajasthan never receives much rainfall. Lakes and rivers will be higher and there's more colour to the landscape.

October to March is the best time to travel to Rajasthan. Expect warm and sunny weather, perfect for exploring and relaxing. Please note that hotels are at their busiest over the Christmas and New Year period. December and January can have very cool mornings and evening and we suggest taking some warm clothing. Whilst temperatures in the desert areas are always hot in the daytime, they become some of the coolest areas of the state once the sun goes down. It’s also normal to expect some fog in the major cities of northern Rajasthan in December and January.

Perched dramatically on a sand mound on the edge of the desert, Mihir Garh is a new luxurious boutique hotel located in a desert wilderness south of Jodhpur, offering an unparalleled insight into Rajasthan's vivid and colourful rural heritage.

Mihir Garh, meaning Sun Fortress, is a spectacular mud fort, blending understated luxury with a rustic and sumptuous earthy elegance. Just under an hour's drive from Jodphur, this is a great location to unwind and enjoy Rajasthani splendour.

Made of wattle, mud and wood, this boutique hotel comprises only nine suites set over two floors. The spacious rooms are either sunset or sunrise facing with substantial terraces from which to enjoy the unspoilt and enchanting desert vistas. The bedrooms have a spacious sitting room and large bathrooms have separate bathtubs and showers. The interior design is soft and inconspicuous, blending with the desert colours surrounding the fort. The ground floor rooms all have good sized private plunge pools, whilst the rooms upstairs offer Jacuzzi pools.

Mihir Garh offers both continental and Indian cuisine, and the hotel rate includes all meals, house alcohol, soft drinks and one jeep safari. The hotel has a number of intimate nooks and crannies including three courtyards, a sun terrace and a main swimming pool. They also have a spa with two massage rooms with steam and sauna rooms.

Mihir Garh is owned by a keen horseman, and they boast some of the finest Marwari horses in their stables. They offer exceptional horse safaris through the local countryside and into the desert. Furthermore, they offer superb village safaris showcasing the prevalent Bishnoi tribal culture surrounding Mihir Garh. Being only 45-minutes south of Jodhpur, many guests spend a morning visiting the ‘Blue City’ before returning to the peace and quiet of Mihir Garh in the evening.

I was wowed by Mihir Garh. It really was a stunning property! In particular, I loved the way it just seemed to rise out of the desert wilderness. It was so lovely to see how the owning family had invited local village women into the property to add some finishing details to the property for example, the fire places which have been crafted from the Indian equivalent of wattle and daub.
