Hi everybody! dont miss the day with Kukki!! I went with him alone, as a woman travelet,and had such a great and safe day!! We went on his bike, deep into the villages and nature, saw amaxing waterfalls and spots, and of course the pre historic caves and paintings, which he discoveredall by himself! His English is great, but also his friendliness and caring during all day long... make sure you take the right Kukki (look at the pictures), because there are phonies saying they are Kukki... but there isonly one true unforgettable Kukki! Do not leave Bundi without meeting him!

If you are passionate about archaeology in general and cave painting in particular, the elegant 10,000 year old cave paintings that Kukki will show you to are worth the time and effort to get to. Kukki is, however, a real character, and an acquired taste. He is entirely self-taught on the subject of cave painting. You get serenaded, bullied, cajoled, embraced and reenacted at, and have to listen to a great deal of unscientific speculation based on viewings of the Discovery Channel and the like. If you can go with it, recognizing that this is his defining passion and greatest love that he is sharing with you, a unique world treasure in its own right, and an opportunity to interact with someone whose life experiences are entirely unfamiliar to you, you will find it rewarding. He knows the back country like the back of his hand, is the only tour guide we met who picked up trash as he went along, and he has lots of pleasant and interesting ‘surprises’ up his sleeve for visitors, like a stop by a lovely step well, a breath-taking waterfall or a crumbling old ruin of a royal hunting lodge. He can take you to the location of many old stepwells - baoris and kunds (the latter in particular are amazing). If you are interested in old coins, he says he has an extensive collection of those too, which he’s picked up at the various sites along with tools and other artifacts. You get the idea. We are glad we visited kukkiworld - but we know it would not be everyone’s cup of tea. (And don’t forget a hat and lots of sun-screen. No bathrooms either - or rather, the great outdoors awaits you, so bring wipes and a plastic bag.)

A great way to see a little of the Rajasthani countryside is to hire a car to visit the cave paintings near Bundi. You will also visit waterfalls, adobe villages, and appreciate the quiet open spaces of the countryside.

We had a most unexpected highlight of our Indian trip with our visit to Bundi. We had the good fortune to meet Mr Kukki and to stay at the hotel run by his son - the Bundi Haveli. We had a driver and car so met Kukki onsite where we were shown some wonderful country by this entertaining man. The cave we were taken to had some interesting paintings - we were fortunate to tag onto a trip with some cave painting experts who were in awe. If you have the chance try to take a Kukki tour. It may be for you, as for us, a highlight of your stay!
