From where would you be starting your trip? How do you plan to travel in between cities?

Jaipur - Jaisalmer - Jodhpur - Udaipur - Mumbai should be a good route.

At such short notice getting confirmed train tickets will be a problem. Check if you could get tickets under FTQ frpm Mumbai to Udaipur.

You could hire a car for your Rajasthan trip. Do your sight seeing in Jaipur and then leave towards Jaisalmer with an overnight halt at Osian. Next day move to Jaisalmer and stay for a couple of days. Include an overnight at the desert at Khuri. Then move on to Jodhpur and do your sight seeing there (should be good for 2 days). Then move on to Ranakpur see the temple and then move on to Kumbhalgarh for an overnight halt. See the light and sound show in the evening. Next day see the fort and then proceed towards Udaipur. Udaipur should be good for 3 days.

You could contact Madhu Travels - Tel: 02794-235724, Fax: 02974-237324, Mobile: 94148-43400, 88908-43400, Email: r_gehlot69@yahoo.com for the cab. Similarly you could ask you hotel in Jaipur to organize one for you. As far as I know Madhu Travels rates are competitive and I was happy using their service. I have mentioned about them in my Mt Abu - Udaipur trip in my signature.

If possible schedule your trip around some of this month's festivals...Navatri and Ashwa Poojan in Udaipur or the Marwar Festival in Jodhpur. We loved the Ashwa Poojan and it was great that Navatri was happening at the same time. Haven't been to the Marwar Festival but given that the fort is spectacular, I imagine it would be as well!

Would love to recommend the following accommodations if you don't mind... Jaiwana Haveli in Udaipur (great rooftop restaurant overlooking the lake), Haveli Inn Pal in Jodhpur (rooftop restaurant with great unobstructed views of the fort), Hotel Pleasant Haveli in Jaisalmer (not inside the fort - don't recommend staying inside - but in a convenient & nice location - view of the fort). Long ago we stayed at the Samode Haveli in Jaipur and loved it - I don't think it was as expensive as it is today though. Enjoy!

Osiyan is not on the Jaipur- Jaisalmer route, it's a serious detour and closer to Jodhpur. An option is to stay overnight in Phalodi and visit Khichan nearby early next morning (around 7 or 8 am) to visit the demoiselle cranes. Upto ten thousand of these migratory birds descend on this village each year, coming down from the eurasian steppes. In my signature is a report (Jaisalmer, khichan). After you've seen the 'feeding' ceremony , leave a little late in the morning for the three hour drive to Jaisalmer.

If you need a cheaper (relatively) and still a heritage accommodation in Jaipur consider either Narain niwas or Diggi Palace. In Jaisalmer, I stayed in Desert Boys' guest house. They also arrange safaris. It is inside the fort and I enjoyed it much.

Oh yes...forgot to mention that Hotel Pleasant Haveli in Jaisalmer arranged for our camel safari and dinner in the desert (which was amazing). We made a stop at Kuldhara on the way but did not stay overnight.

Hello Members,

Seeking for your opinion. I've planned a trip to Rajasthan on 3rd December with my sr. citizen parents for 7 days.We will reach Jaipur on 3rd and will catch the train to Jaisalmer. 4th december we will explore Jaisalmer and next few days we would like to cover up Jodhpur,Udaipur and Ranthamvore. 10th 9 pm is our return flight.Will we be able to cover up all these places.If we take trains,then most of the day getting wasted.Please suggest the logistics.

There is no train between Jodhpur and Udaipur. There is an overnight train from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur.

Where is your return flight from? You will have to skip Ranthambore. Before we decide on the logistics you need to decide which places to see and which to skip.

Most tourists do hire a cab from Jodhpur to Udaipur seeing Ranakpur / Kumbhalgarh or both on the way.

I would still say skip Ranthambore.

For seeing Udaipur and Mount Abu you would need around 3 days. For more information read my trip report.

Spend the remaining time in Jodhpur and Jaipur.
