ABOUT

Amber Beyond the Brochure

It gives one immense pleasure to cycle in the streets of Amber, the paths are often narrow cobblestone alleyways giving you a natural shelter from the regular tourist crowds. The Amber Palace is well known around the world for gorgeous palatial halls & elephant joy rides. Lesser known are the secrets from the backyard of the Amber citadel, we cycle through these hidden streets making at some charming little spots that have stood the test of time. These streets are forgotten from the tourist catalogues and unbeknownst to the Instagram Influencers, so far. Riding our bikes in the streets of Rural Amber following the footsteps of pilgrims & traders that used these paths as a gateway to the Amber Citadel through the centuries.
