• Jodhpur & Jaisalmer: A Rajasthan Adventure

EDVENTURE EXPLAINED

Why did we choose Jodhpur & Jaisalmer?

Jodhpur (est. 1459) and Jaisalmer (est. 1156) are representative of a culture and people unlike anywhere else in India. The grandeur, might and royalty attached to these beautiful cities are evident in the many forts and palaces that dot the cities and contribute to their respective landscapes. This land stands steeped in stories of valour, virtues and values, that can motivate and inspire the current generation of student.

What does this journey offer?

Besides discovering the historical cities of Jodhpur and Jaisalmer, students also experience the thrill of living in the desert and witness a culture that is uniquely inviting, colourful and inspiring. Students document each aspect of their unique journey of learning in a Student Travel Chronicle magazine, which they collectively author and photograph.
