I'm going to India in July and need to travel from Udaipur to Jodhpur. I did this journey in 2004 and caught a bus to Falna, where I got a train to Malwar and then on to Jodhpur. I was told that they were converting the track from Udaipur to Malwar from narrow guage to std gauge. Does anyone know if this work has been completed? I can't find anything out about it on the net. Is there any other way of travelling between these two cities?
I realise that you can do the entire journey by bus - I did the return that way in 2004 via Ranakpur- but with July monsoon weather, floods and road works the journey took 13 hours to travel less than 200 km.
Any recommendations?

Hello Mike and welcome to indiamike.com

The line from Mavli (N.E. of Udaipur) to Marwar is still metre gauge and slow.

You can get a direct train from Udaipur (07:05) to Ajmer (12:30) or to Jaipur or Delhi (overnight).

Another option is to get a bus to Mt. Abu, have a look around, then get a train from Abu Rd. station direct to Jodhpur.

2480, ABU ROAD 01:22, JODHPUR 06:30
4708, ABU ROAD 04:27, JODHPUR 09:45
9223, ABU ROAD 15:27, JODHPUR 20:15


Kingfisher flight IT-2331 departs Udaipur daily at 09:05 and gets to Jodhpur at 09:55 (then Jaisalmer at 11:20).

You'll have to go to their website to find fares and availibility. (let us know the fares)

Indian Airlines also fly this route (dep 17:05, arr 17:45).
