I come from a state which is blessed with travelers from all over Europe and North America. And some of them are, which we call in India - jugaadu, which means Innovative.

So in my first article on DiveBuddy I want to share some sites which many of my guests have idealized as best diving sites is the desert state of Rajasthan.

1. Pushkar Lake Rajasthan.

This is a natural clean lake in the city of Pushkar, full of travelers from Israel and also a per sire for divers. The lake here is also a holy one so I won’t suggest you to enjoy any beach activities here. But nevertheless, its a nice place to chill out.

Pushkar Lake is a major spot for water adventure sports either it is Rafting of Scuba diving. All the hotels located near Pushkar Lake include Scuba-diving in their package. The water of this lake is naturally clean and attracts divers. The shores of Pushkar Lake is always full of tourist especially travellers from Israel. It is a great place to chill in.

2. Stepwells

Stepwells are an intriguing part of history of Rajasthan and holds and architectural significance. These structures were specially made in arid regions for water storage so that water can be reached by descending set of steps. Stepwell or Baori is a fascinating part of history.
Panna Meena ka Kund, Chand Baori and Nahargarh stepwell are the most famous stepwells of Rajasthan. These stepwells or Baolis are water reservoirs and local children and youth love to dive in them.

There are unique diving platforms in all of the stepwells and people often visit here in monsoon for this purpose. To most surprise, some stepwells are still working, and water level increases enough during rainy season for safe diving. I would suggest you to contact a local travel firm to book a 12 seater tempo traveller in Jaipur via which you can visit all these sites easily. Plus if you have an extra day, the do visit the beautiful sites of Agra which also include Taj Mahal. You just need one day for Agra Sightseeing & its just 220 km from Jaipur.

3. Lake Pichola of Udaipur

Lake of Udaipur is second major diving spot of Rajasthan. Sites around the lake are fantastic and force divers to try it once. Udaipur is globally famous for romance, and this Lake is a particular add-on. Moreover, Udaipur is known for a special rescue team of divers. These three divers are carrying their legacy since last fifteen years. And if you are ever planning to visit Rajasthan, do visit Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur and Udaipur. They are by far some of the most beautiful cities of Rajasthan. You can either travel to these cities by train or book Rajasthan car rental service from Jaipur or Delhi. Either way a trip to Rajasthan is must if you are planning to visit India.

I will add some more sites, once I get images for that. Till then keep diving.
