Udaipur-Ranakpur-Jodhpur

Dear all,

Would like to ask if it's possible to travel by bus or cab from Udaipur to Ranakpur, then to Jodhpur in ONE day?

Will it possible if I included Kumbalghar also?

Thank you.

It would be possible to include Kumbhalgarh and Ranakpur on the way from Jodhpur to Agra if you do it by cab.

If you are interested to take photos in Ranakpur, for your information photography is allowed only after 12:00 in Ranakpur. So first visit Kumbhalgarh and then Ranakpur. You will also have to start early by around 6-7 in the morning.

Aarosh, where does Agra come in. Yes, it is possible. You would reach Ranakpur only after 12 noon (Kumbhalgarh would take some time). As for photographs of Ranakpur, you can buy them in Udaipur or shops in Ranakpur also, you would perhaps get professional quality.

Sorry, It should have been Udaipur instead of Agra

Thanks for the useful information. May I know roughly how much does the cab cost?

And, does Ranakpur and Kumbalgarh worth visiting? Just the temples in both cities right?

Ranakpur is a Jain temple and Kumbhalgarh is a fort. You can check a few photos of the temples which is uploaded in my gallery.

You can check the snaps of Ranakpur in my gallery http://www.indiamike.com/photopost/s...ser/42956/sl/a

The cab should charge you around Rs 3500/- for a Non AC Indica

Thanks again...seems it's nice to be there.

Sorry but I have another question. Do you know how can I travel from Jodhpur to Delhi? I can't find any train in between these cities. Is that true? What others I can go for except by air.

Thanks guys... i am very grateful.

I have another questions.

My plan journey is Delhi-Varanasi-Agra-Jaipur-Udaipur-Ranakpur- Kumbalghar-Jodhpur-Delhi.

Most of the my journey are overnight train, except Agra to Jaipur which reach on the same night and Jodhpur to Delhi by cab.

I stay one night for each cities but I have 3 more nights left, just wonder, which cities should I choose to stay more than 1 day?

ill be doing this in reverse in a few weeks, from jodhpur to udaipur. i had a look on mapmyindia.com, which suggests it'll be nearly 7 hours to ranakpur. does that seem right?

also should i go to Kumbhalgarh first, then ranakpur? again, directions on the website aren't the best.

Udaipur to Ranakpur is around 2 and half hours. Do not know how much time it would take from Jodhpur. Photography is allowed in Ranakpur after 12:00. You can go to any place earlier. There is a diversion on the road, one goes to Ranakpur and the other to Kumbhagarh.
