Although just 44 km from the rapidly growing Udaipur city, Bathera
village is typical rural heartland, surrounded by tribals, farmers,
shepherds and other communities, each following their unique,
centuries old and customs.
Throughout the year, the Rawla leads neighbouring villages in
celebrating several festivals, helping to preserve and revive local
cultural traditions. Each event is held on the date of a particular
festival and is themed around its story. Celebrations and
spontaneous community participation are accompanied by local music,
dance, and an afternoon or evening meal.
Rawla Bathera welcomes the discerning traveler to witness and
participate in these diverse and authentic events, which provide an
opportunity to closely interact with rural populations and the
owners who personally guide visitors through the activities.
Traditional attire is supplied to guests where this is required, and
lunch or dinner is served during the event.
We can also host a limited number of guests overnight, should they
wish to enjoy a rural homestay. Part of our earnings from this
venture goes to conserve the surrounding natural forest, freshwater
resources, sites of historical significance and funding the
education of needy children in the local schools.
