No Leaves Left? Unwind At This Holiday Village Only An Hour Away From Gurgaon
What Makes It Awesome
The setting is of a lovely little village, complete with mud huts, a pond, cattle barns and rolling green fields. The occasion? Pratapgarh farms is perfect for a day picnic on the weekend, so you can go back to Monday morning blues and a new work week. Located in Jhajjar village, this getaway is ideal for a trip with your extended family or Sunday Funday with the squad. A full day at this farm costs INR 1,230 (AI) for visitors aged 10 years and older, INR 690 for children between 5-10 years, while children below 5 years walk in for free.
Everything, from the food to the activities organised at Pratapgarh Farms, is inspired by rural life. Make two teams and test your Gilli Danda chops, or relive your childhood with a game of Pithoo! Spend the day painting frescoes on mud walls, honing the craft of pottery or learn how to make intricate henna designs. They even have an adventure area for the kids to enjoy. If you decide to go all-in, you could even get a crash course in milking goats or ploughing fields. Having worked up an appetite, tuck in to a sumptuous feast with simple, but wholesome, dishes like Paneer Shahi, Rajma, Sarson Ka Saag with Makee Ki Roti (and lots of white butter!), Rabri and Halwa. Fight off the urge to doss down for a nap and, instead, explore the rest of the property on a tractor. As dusk falls, and your time at Pratapgarh Farms comes to a close, you’ll find yourself making plans to visit again. This time, for a spot of kite-flying, charkha weaving and more delicious food.
