Hi ,

My trip is a very short 4 day trip during the independence weekend and is basically starting from Jodhpur - Jaisalmer - Jaipur . But our problem is we need to reeach Jaipur from Jaisalmer and by train its an almost 13 hr journey which is a waste and hence we decided to take the road to Jaisalmer to Bikaner and from there to Jaipur.

Can someone pl. tell me how much time it would take by road cause advantage is we can stop at a few tourist spots on the way and get to see somemore of Rajasthan rather than just wasting it in travellin by train. This is how it is and cannot b changed as our return tickets r already booked from Jaipur in the evening around 7.30 PM so if we leave from Jaisalmer in the morning around 9 AM and go as said would be make it to Jaipur on time ?

And any ideas on the good car rentals or taxis that we can hire for this road trip ?

It's a very long drive. I just checked it out on www.MapmyIndia.com At the top under directions I put in Jaisalmer to Jaipur & it came out to 613km and 15 hr. 23 min. I thought it would take about 12 hrs. by car.

I've never tried to do it in one day. Maybe consider Jaisalmer to Jodhpur by car (about 5 hrs when we did it) then train to Jaipur which I think is about 6 hours.

Don't know if this is very helpful.
