The Maharaja of Jodhpur bestowed the fiefdom of Rohet upon Thakur Dalpat Singh 1, Rathore of the Champawat clan, as a reward for bravery in the 16th century. These days it is a bustling, colourful Rajasthani village surrounded by semi-desert landscape.

At one end of the village there is a lake that draws lots of birdlife and attracts jeep safaris which venture out into the countryside to meet with Bishnoi communities. These tribal people are sustained by their local environment and they include farmers, potters, weavers, leather embroiderers, semi-nomadic Raika shepherds and camel herders.

Rohet is also home to special boutique hotel, Mihir Garh, which is a dazzling beacon in the sandy wilderness, with its spacious suites, private plunge pools and exceptional wildlife encounters. Just 45 minutes south of Jodhpur, this resort is on the edge of the Thar desert and offers astounding views.

Mihir Garh is owned by a renowned horseman and the resort boasts some of the region’s finest Marwari stallions and an exceptional equestrian programme including horse safaris and even overnight treks. Guests are encouraged to experience the desert first-hand with riding safaris, camel dune rides, tribal village safaris and picnics. You can also treat yourself to a camel-drawn dinner at sunset set up by candlelight in the middle of the desert.

Client Testimonials

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!

I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had. Everything – from the individual care and attention in planning the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round!
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
