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 the 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 need to spend one night so don’t waste too much money in it but if you have a reasonable budget go for it.

Travel Map for Rajasthan Trip

Map for Rajasthan Trip

  • Jaipur > Shyam Khatu > Salasar [ Night Stay ]
  • 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 temples on the first half, and the 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 the city where the trip ends.

Preparation plan for Rajasthan Trip

  • You will have to travel with complete luggage everywhere, try to take no extra baggage.
  • Few warm clothes. You might need at Mt Abu and Jaisalmer.
  • Carry ample water everywhere.
  • Your usual digital stuff like Camera, Handy cam, music player as there are a lot of beautiful scenes and a lot of travel.
  • Carry few video cd / DVD if you have a video cab or coach. It 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 a pleasant experience. Our driver, Mr. Bhawanr, was one of the best we got. He had traveled across Rajasthan many times with excellent driving experience. Also, make sure you get a superb vehicle to travel.
