Summer’s vacations are here to offer you a wonderful activity that will allow you to spend time with the elephants in Hathi gaon. This village is just 3 kilometres away from Amber Fort and designed specifically for elephants to relax and bathe in. Along with elephant ride enjoy painting the elephant, prepare food for them and learn about their living habits from their Mahout. A mahout starts as a boy in the ‘family profession’ when he is assigned an elephant early in its life. they remain bonded to each other throughout their lives. thanks to the skill and a cultivated, longstanding relationship, the mahout is the sole person the elephant will obey; however, the keepers are not well paid– their salary totals about 5,000 rupees per month. the mahout conducts the elephant and tourist up through the palace’s entrance arch. a ride costs 1100/-. elephants require 300 liters of water per day; therefore, 100 elephants x 365 days x 300 litres = 10,950,000 liters as of 2013, due to the successful implementation of design strategies, the approximate quantity of water retained on site per year is 20 million liters, approximately double the yearly requirement for one hundred elephants at the Hathi gaon.

the Hathi gaon village is situated at the foothill of the amber palace and fort near Jaipur. the design first involved structuring the landscape to create a series of water bodies to harvest the rain runoff, as this is the most crucial resource in the desert climate of Rajasthan. with the water resources in place, an extensive tree plantation and seeding program were carried on the site to propagate and stabilize local species.
