You can also explore the rough terrains of the city in modified military coloured jeeps. You can book a jeep at Amer fort for just Rs.800 and go upto the NailaHawa Bungalow, of course with various stops on the way.

View the city from above in a hot air balloon

Nothing beats the experience of catching the glimpse of an entire city from a hot air balloon. Many adventure companies will offer you this opportunity for an entire day starting from INR 9,000. You just have to head to Jamnalal Bajaj Road and book your hot air balloon for a day. This ride of a lifetime will give you views of the famous city palace, JantarMantar, Jalmahal and every other palace in the city of Jaipur.

Explore Amer Fort on foot

This place is truly a wonder. It is magnificent and amazing at the same time and transports you back to the Mughal times as soon as you step into the fort. The entire fort can take a day to be explored completely and it is always better to hire a guide who will give you an in-depth knowledge of everything in the fort right from the queen’s bath to the Diwan-e-Aam and Diwan-e-Khass. The mirror palace in the fort also has a story and each guide will charge you around Rs. 300. The entry ticket fee can be waived off if you are a student or else you will have to pay Rs. 200 per person which is quite reasonable in itself.

Amer Fort also holds its very own light and sound show at night which has Kathak performers dancing to the folk tunes of the state. Near Amer Fort is Nahargarh fort which is a great place to visit with friends at night. If you want more palace fun, then Jal Mahal is a treat to the eyes during the rainy season as it is located right in the middle of a lake.
