Rajasthan Trip : Hands on Guide

Rajasthan, The Indian land of sand and long history of bravest Indian Warriors India has given birth to is one of the top places when it comes to traveling in India. We were just lucky to be there and places in Rajasthan for 10 days and would love to share my experience with you all like I did for Srinagar Trip . To start, here is a picture collage of the pictures which we took in the trip.

  • Phone : Most of the connection work every where except in Jaisalmer interiors where you would go for seeing the real desert. Airtel works here nothing else.

Accommodation during Rajasthan Trip :

Accommodations are not a problem at all through the trip. Your driver should be able to tell you so make sure you get a right driver. Our driver was pretty experienced and he knew even which places you would get tea. I will be sharing his details at the end.

Since many places you just need to spend one night so don’t waste too much of money in it but if you have good budget go for it.

Travel Plan for Rajasthan Trip

Map for Rajasthan Trip

  • Jaipur > Shyam Khatu > Salasar [ Night Stay ] Detail
  • Jhunjhunu > Deshnok > Bikaner [ Night Stay ]
  • Kodamdesar > Bikaner > Ramdevra [ Night Stay ]
  • Jaisalmer [ Night Stay]
  • Mt Abu.[ 2 days ] > UdaiPur  > Nathdwara [ Night Stay ]
  • Pushkar Via Ajmer > Jaipur [ Night Stay ]

This plan covers visiting to temples on first half and second half is full of sight-seeing and enjoying the rest of the trip. If you feel skipping the temple you can very well start from Jaisalmer where the fun starts.  Keep Jaipur city at the end as you eventually come back to city where the trip ends.

Preparation plan for Rajasthan Trip

  • You will have to travel with complete luggage everywhere, try to take no extra luggage.
  • Few warm clothes which you might need at Mt Abu and Jaisalmer.
  • Carry ample of water every where.
  • Your usual digital stuff like Camera, Handy cam, music player as there are lot of  scenes and lot of travel.
  • Carry few video cd / dvd if you have a video cab or coach. This will be helpful when you travel for 8  hrs in stretch sometimes.
  • Medicines as always.

Choosing your Travel Guide / Driver

Your driver or guide is what will make the complete trip successful at the end. Make sure you get somebody who has good experience. Our driver, Mr Bhawanr was the one of the best we got. He had traveled across Rajasthan many times with an excellent driving experience. Also make sure you get a good vehicle to travel.
