What lies beyond: Kota (Rajasthan)
Not just turbans, camels and sand, Rajasthan has little-known thrilling nooks too, says P.S.Bhavana
“We might meet a leopard or a spotted deer.
“Bones or carcasses on the path are a common sight.
“What if we lose our way?”
“Carry some rope and a torch.”
Words exchanged the night before our bike-cum-trekking trip to a rocky location near Kota along the Eastern banks of Chambal, a river that has water all year round. It was a strange mix of claustrophobia and excitement as we zoomed along broken stonewalls. Okay, riding a good ol’Vespa (with three bikes as companions) was freaky but nevertheless we braved it. The early morning chill bit into us and the ‘What lies beyond?’ thought gripped me.
