Want a break from the hustle-bustle of city life? Then head to Pratapgarh Farms in Jhajjar to enjoy your weekend in its serene and cool rural environs.
Not only does it offer you the opportunity to break free from the mundane and urban lifestyle, it gives you a chance to experience the real India that resides in its villages. In fact, it is one of the best places to surrender to the region’s natural beauty and to rediscover your roots.
Far from the maddening rush of city life yet an hour’s drive from DLF 5, it’s an ideal place to get away from your busy everyday life. Pratapgarh Farms, spread over 12 acres of lush greens, is where you get to experience village life at its colourful best. What’s more, you can be a farmer by participating in agricultural, gardening and dairy activities or plough a field with camels, bulls or tractors. Or you can sit with the village potter to create beautiful terracotta bowls and lamps, else weave a thread on the charkha with local womenfolk, paint matkas (earthen pots) or paint frescoes on mud-plastered walls. You have a host of rural activities to choose from, like cooking, pounding grain, grinding atta (flour), making ghee and buttermilk or simply balancing water pail on your head like true Haryanvi womenfolk.
You can indulge in ethnic games like dart shooting, archery, tug-of-war, hop-skotch or wrestling in the soft soil arena. If you feel tired at any point, get a head massage from the village masseur or take a true mud bath. And when the mud has dried on you, bathe under the gushing waters of the tube-well. If you are in groups , you can indulge in games like tambola (equipment is made available for you to play within your group), musical chairs and three-legged races.
Enjoy delectable vegetarian and non vegetarian cuisines from Haryana, Rajasthan and Punjab throughout the day. Feast on fresh food, pure desi ghee, farm fresh vegetables and milk served hot from traditional mud ovens called chulhas.
