Cashing in on a good monsoon, the Department of Tourism in Rajasthan promoted monsoon tourism in the state, and also kicked off tourist activities, as the region’s water bodies are brimming with water.

Foreign tourists, arriving in Jaipur, were surprised to see rains, as they had expected the climate to be hot and dry.

“It’s very surprising. I was not expecting to see this much water this time of year. Lots of things I have heard about Rajasthan, that it’s like a desert area, it’s dry, it’s very very hot, 49-50 degrees. Then I came here, and it’s so wet, and yesterday it rained for ten minutes, and it was a flood, we had to walk through water on the main road. And this is very surprising, lots of fish in the water, breezy, it’s very nice,” said a tourist, Tania, on Friday.

Major water bodies like Man Sagar Lake in Jaipur , Pichola Lake in Udaipur and Bisalpur Dam in Tonk District have enough water to attract tourists.
