JAWAI - THE LANDSCAPE & LEOPARDS
Jawai, the leopard hills, in the Pali district in Rajasthan is among the very few places in India where you can easily admire these fantastic animals. A picturesque area that also hosts other wild animals and various migratory birds. The area is rich in prairies, riverbeds, and pastures.
The Jawai hills were formed millions of years ago and are composed of lava. The many natural caves and rock shelters are the leopard's lair, hyena crawls, wolves, jackals, and panthers. The area borders the Aravali mountain range, the most impressive of Rajasthan. Jawai's granite rocks offer rare scenes where many wild animals live in the vicinity of the villages in the area.
FLORA AND FAUNA
Jawai is famous for leopards, robber crocodiles and migratory birds like cranes and flamingos. Local people raise sheep, dromedaries, buffaloes, goats, cows. The vegetation is relatively scarce due to the dense presence of granite rocks that dominate the skyline of the area. However, the area abandons "Prosopis juliflora", a plant of South American origin introduced by European colonizers in the past centuries.
The area is famous for the Rebari or Raika nomadic dromedary and sheep breeders. The raikas are famous for their colorful and embroidered clothes: both women and men use to dress and embellish themselves in a very elegant way. Women use special bracelets made of camel bone that cover almost the whole hand. Their jewels are made with the classic ethnic designs of Rajasthan, made, above all, silver. The rebaris are obsessed with the red color they use for their clothes. Men wear gigantic turbans of this red color, while women use red sarees with very sensual blouses. They are always traveling all over northern India looking for grass for their livestock, especially during periods when rain is scarce. The other most famous caste that lives in this area is the Rajputs: a caste of the warriors of Rajasthan. Jawai is an ideal place for those who want to experience the culture, colors, traditions, nature, and fauna of Rajasthan. An extraordinary place, outside the circuits of mass tourism.
