Hello India Mikers!

It's been a while since I visited the site (7 years?!) but I'm back because... I'm finally making it back to India!

Sadly only for 2 weeks (and 1 day) this time, leaving 7th October. My planned route at the moment is Mumbai - Udaipur - Jodhpur - Jaisalmer - Jaipur - Agra - Delhi

My questions are:
1. Is this a decent route for such a short amount of time (appreciate it will be a whistlestop tour!)
2. Is it possible to do all of this by train? Are there frequent trains the whole way round? We don't have the luxury of time to be able to wait a week for the next train to roll into town to take us to our next destination!

Thanks so much in advance

Except for Mumbai-Udaipur the trains between the cities run daily. It should be possible to see all the places comfortably with overnight trains between two cities.

Check www.erail.in for train information.

It would also be advisable to book your train tickets in advance. In Rajasthan travelling by bus is also an good option if you are not able to get confirmed seats on trains

Train

There is no train between Udaipur and Jodphur, but that's a great excuse to visit Ranakpur, the Jain Temple between those two places. You can take a bus there. It's a must-see in Rajasthan.

Thank you Geosands, forget about the train between Udaipur and Jodhpur. Most tourists normally take a cab to Jodhpur visiting Ranakpur and Kumbhalgarh on the way. You could take a cab and visit one place while in Udaipur and the other while going to Jodhpur.

Most hotels in Udaipur have a travel desk. You can contact them for arranging a cab. The cost should be around Rs 4500/- for a AC Indica (3+1) car
