Utsav Camp Sariska | Sleep with the stars, rise with the birds

Hi, I hope you all are doing well. Today I am going to talk about one of the most beautiful places I have visited before COVID19 hit India drastically. We all have been locked up for a pretty long time now but if you are looking for a gateway then this is and this should be your ultimate destination as they have reopened there services maintaining safety protocol. 

This trip has been a life-changing experience. Endless realization and humble experiences. I didn’t expect life to turn around and give me the greatest gift of all time and that is to believe and have hope. I will fall short of words to explain the beauty of this place. Sariska is an unknown destination for many and maybe I didn’t bother to pay much attention to a place where there is hardly anything that we call modernization. Surprising this place gives you all that you need. all the essentials of life – Freshwater, 0 pollutions, Electricity, humble people and stress-free life. Every sunrise and sunset is so beautiful and so different. During my stay, I often felt like I was photoshopped or I was just watching those pretty wallpapers.

Sariska Tiger Reserve is well nestled in the Aravali Hills covering 800 sq km area divided into the grasslands, dry deciduous forests, sheer cliffs and rocky landscape. A variety of wild animals like the leopard, sambhar, chital, nilgai, four-horned antelope, wild boar, rhesus macaque, langur, hyena and jungle cats are found in the Sariska Tiger Reserve apart from the tiger. Rest assured you will get to see them. I spotted a leopard during my visit. Sariska National Park is home to India's largest population of peafowl and harbours quail, sand grouse, golden-backed woodpeckers and crested serpent eagles, among other species. Sariska is a trip worth visiting because it will bring you closer to nature and wildlife. There are many activities to venture here from exploring the wildlife by jeep safaris to trying photography in the scenic hills of the Aravallis.

Life is simple and we complicate it. We fail to realize the true essence of Walking up to birds chirping and sleeping under the stars. As they say, The stars will guide you home, the home where the heart is. Where do I start from – if picture perfect could only sum up how beautiful breathtaking this place is. Being a workaholic I never realized the what does it even mean by the sentence – the art of doing nothing. I learnt it here. I learnt to hear my thoughts. I learnt to be humble. I learnt to be slow, to enjoy every breath I take. From amazzziiingggggg staff to tastiest Rajasthani food. From tea on the lakeside, while watching the sunset to walking around the property village in the morning. Life is so simple, life is so happier out here. I can just go on and on

Here is something more about the property this property is run by Luv Shekhawat

When he bought the land it was a barren piece of land. The first thing that he started doing was putting off a lot of trees In the area But as he was from Hotel Management background he did not have much idea about what is to be planted in such climatic areas but fortunately is grandfather was in the Forest Department irrespective of his old 8 and limitations he kept suggesting me and I kept planting tree after planting 2500 trees after the year or so he realised that only left with 500 because it is a termite prone area. in the meantime Installed solar water panels. He also started drip irrigation And he did all that you can do to make this place for eco friendly. He always had this zeal to open up something different, as due to his grandfather he was exposed to the love for the forest at a very early age he always wanted to do something to give that experience and learning to others.  so as this land was very close to the Jungle the best thing that he could think of was a Jungle lodge. as a nature of a Jungle, the lodge is pretty much different from the whole idea of running a resort. So this place started building a,  it can be pretty will be divided into two phases.  the first one was getting 10 tents installed along with thatched-roof dining hall. two pools and lounge area.  one this was done they opened their Gate for everybody in the year 2015. Utsav camp started running. The ambience, Beautiful scenic location. 10 beautifully handcrafted Eco-friendly Swiss tents and 09 stone cottages which deliver accommodation in utmost luxury and style, with all the modern facilities. Huge and Clean washrooms; you will get all you to need the most necessities.

Huge and Clean washrooms; you will get all the you need the most basic necessities. Jump in the swimming pool or just Sit in the Roop top cafe. The entire property offers a breath taking view of the cinematic and majestic Arravalli hills – for those unknown – it is the world’s oldest ranges. How can I miss out the wildlife. Oh the safari. This place is very close the Sariska national park and wildlife, but also in-between small countryside villages. Live in the wilderness. I will try and sum it up by saying, this place will teach you the true meaning of life, which we who stays in cosmopolitan cities have definitely forgot what it feels like. The most relaxing destination I have ever been and I think you can ever find. @utsavcampsariska . #indiatravel #india #travel #incredibleindia #travelphotography #travelgram #travelindia #indiatravelgram #travelblogger #wanderlust #indiapictures #instatravel #travelrealindia #nature #indiaclicks #indiatourism #indianphotography #storiesofindia #indiangirlstravel #indiatraveldiaries #lonelyplanetindia #tripotocommunity #travelrealindia #traveldiaries #natgeoyourshot #natgeotravel #mobilephotography #indiatravel #natgeo #indiatravelgram

Oh how much I love the forest and wildlife. I took the biggest risk of my life so far, with the forest department I went for tiger tracking. The adrenal rush within me I would never be able to explain it in words. I remember having a discussion with a few members of the board and they casually told me – "ma'am we will walk or we will take a bike." I screamed in excitement, oh woah so cool. They looked at me and said they had never seen someone so excited to get dirty and tanned. Well, I knew it was going to be worth it and it was. I love my dirty clothes when I am out to explore, on an adventure. I don't know when and where will I go next but I can't wait to hit the road, get tanned and make the best out of my life. Sariska Tiger Reserve is a tiger reserve in Alwar district, Rajasthan, India. It stretches over an area of 881 km2 (340 sq mi) comprising scrub-thorn arid forests, dry deciduous forests, grasslands, and rocky hills. This area was a hunting preserve of the Alwar state and was declared a wildlife reserve in 1955.

Apart from the Bengal tiger, which went missing during a period due to poaching. It has been restored. Now in 2020, the tiger population in the reserve has risen to 20 if I am not wrong. Other than that you can spot jungle cat, striped hyena, golden jackal, sambar deer, nilgai, wild boar, small Indian civet, Javan mongoose, ruddy mongoose, Northern plains grey langur to name a few. If you are a bird watcher this would be a paradise, I have seen birds which I have never seen before not just that I had to struggle to find the names so here are few that I have spotted casually chilling all around Utsav Camp in general – Peacocks are the most common, grey partridge, Indian peafowl, bush quail, treepie, white-throated kingfisher, golden-backed woodpecker, sandgrouse, crested serpent eagle and the Indian eagle-owl. This place is not just very close to the Sariska national park and wildlife, but also in-between beautiful small countryside villages. Live in the wilderness, closest to nature.

Reposted from @the_mixblog I realized that how difficult it is to get a clear shot of animals in wild life. Courtesy to them as they chose to pose for us. We started (and ended too) with the most common and easy to spot animals i.e. deers. A sambar deer looked at us. Sariska national park in alwar , Rajasthan is a great place to visit. It was a great experience exploring wildlife with classic views.

I will try and sum it up by saying, this place will teach you the true meaning of life, which people like us who stays in cosmopolitan cities have forgotten what it feels like. Utsav Camp Sariska would be by far the most relaxing destination I have ever been and I think you can ever find soon. There is much new development which would be taking place like, they are also opening up a spa, yoga and meditation centre. So I can’t wait to visit it all over again. It felt like I was Home. This place is not just very close to the Sariska national park and wildlife, but also in-between beautiful small countryside villages.

On a daily basis I get atleast 10 stupid messages asking how do I travel so much? How am I earning? How much do I earn?What will happen when I turn 30 which is about 6 years later? What will happen when I will get married? How did I get myself into this? Blaa bla bla First of all, do I come to ask you why are you working in a fancy office? Do I ask what's your salary package? Do I ask you anything at all? If you really care you should just be happy knowing and watching the fact I'm happy and living a life I want to live. I'm doing what I want to do you are doing what you want to do. If you are jealous I'm flattered. You don't feed me or take me around these places. I do what I have to do the way I have to do. I work hard for the life I am living and intend to live. Your opinions, assumption presumption has no space in my life. I'm in my own world of being lost with what so ever, no sense of being found. . #womenentrepreneur #womeninbusiness #entrepreneur #womenentrepreneurs #femaleentrepreneur #womeninbiz #womenempowerment #entrepreneurlife #entrepreneurship #femaleentrepreneurs #inspirationalquotes #wordsofwisdom #poetrylovers #writingcommunity #writersofindia #poemsofinstagram #inspiration #sareenotsorry #words #thesewords #lifecoach #awomanslife #awomansworth #awomanisawoman #lifeofawoman #womanempowermentquotes
