Sample Rajasthan itineraries

Trying to decide 3 places among Ranthambore, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Udaipur
10 years ago, August 11th 2009 No: 1 Msg: #82839  

I am planning to travel to India for 2 weeks in Jan/Feb with a friend, and we're thinking of spending the first week (7 days/6 nights) in Rajasthan. We are keen on seeing the following four places: Udaipur, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Ranthambore National Park.

However since this is going to be a short trip we understand that time might not permit us to visit all four. In that case, any suggestions which three of these four we should visit and propose some sample itineraries?

Thank you in advance.

I didn't meet anyone who actually saw anything in Rathbambore (although you might be lucky I guess!) so I guess if I was going to drop any of them for me that would be it. I'll caveat that though by saying that personally, for me Rajasthan was all about the forts and palaces.

Jaipur: At least 2 days to do a whirlwind tour of sites inside and outside the city. You can take the over night train from here to Udaipur.

Udaipur: Again at least 2 days - one to do the city sites and another to hire a car and get out to Kumbalargh fort and the jain temple at Ranapur (easily the best day out I did in 2 months in India).

I didn't get to Jodpur but I understand that a day is enough.

If you're only going for two weeks and tight on time you might want to book your trains before you get there: http://www.irctc.co.in When it comes to payment select Axis from the long list of availablie banks listed - think its second on the left and they seem to allow international credit cards. Just remember to print a copy of the eticket and take it with you on the train otherwise there's a fine to pay....

Hi, I would suggest visiting Jodhpur, Jaislmer, Jaipur and Ranthambore National Park and skipping Udaipur - Jaislmer is a must see if you are traveling all the way upto Jodhpur.

If you'll are ok with a hectic trip - you can visit all the places too - will be tiring but will have good memoirs in your travel log! Reply to this

Day 1:Delhi -
From New Delhi railway station board train for Swai-Madhopur, (Train no.2904 - 0720 hr-1312 hr) Ranthambore National Park. You will reach by afternoon. You cantake a Jeep safari in the evening and try luck in spotting the Tigers. 😊

Day 2&3: Ranthambore - Jaipur - Drive to Jaipur from Ranthambore in the morning (145 km - 3 hr), Spend one and half day in Jaipur. Take the overnight train to Udaipur

Day 4&5- Spend two days in Udaipur. On day 5 you can take an overnight bus from Udaipur to Jodhpur, it will take about 8 hours.

Day 6&7 - Two days in Jodhpur, you can either take an overnight train or fly back to Delhi. Train would be better as that would be an overnighter , the flights take off in the afternoon, so that would be a waste of a day.

Another Option is :

Day 1- Drive to Ranthambore. I presume you are travelling from Delhi. Day 2 early morning drive off to Jaipur.

Day 2&3 : Jaipur
Drive to Jaipur, the pink city, so named because of the pink colored buildings in old city such as the famous Palace of Winds.

Day 4 &5 : Udaipur
One of the most charming places in Rajasthan is the city of lakes, Udaipur. On a romantic boat ride on Lake Picchola enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of the City palace complex, the Lake Palace and the Jag Mandir.

Day 6&7 - Jodhpur

OR Else u could do :

Day 1- &2 Flight to Jodhpur from Delhi, there are two flights from Delhi one at about 10 am and the other at 1pm, but both would get you there by late afternoon as the morning flight has a stop over.

Day3 &4- Drive to Udaipur ( 256 kms from Jodhpur) or fly ( two flights from Jodhpur to Udaipur in the afternoon about 2 pm. Flight time is about 1 hour.

Day 5&6- Fly to Jaipur ( 2 flights in the morning 8 am and 9am, flying time about 1 hour but depends on whether the flight is non stop or not) or drive Jaipur 295 kms from Udaipur. Day 6th Afternoon you could move to Ranthambore , a drive of 130 kms.

Day 6 ( afternoon and day 7- Ranthambore and drive back or take a bus back to Delhi

I hope this helps, do write in if you need more info.
Happy Planning!!

But these trips will be super hectic.

Rajasthan is the best place to visit in India . You can here do a lot of thing like go for sightseeing, Desert Camping , Jeep safari, camel safari, elephant safari etc. rajasthan is full of monuments and havelies. This is the best place to visit in winters and monsoon. Reply to this
