I am planning for a trip to Rajasthan. I have 5 days to spend while I am there and am looking to setup an itinerary.
I plan to drive from Jaipur to Udaipur and spend roughly 2 days at each place.
In order to plan for the trip, it helps to have a good approximation for travel time between the two places. Google maps estimates travel time (one-way) between the two places to be roughly 6 hours. How accurate is this?
It would also help if you could point out must-see attractions (excluding religious places). I am interested in seeing the palaces, lakes, market/shopping areas.
More information about my background... I am Indian and a budget traveller.
What is the best way to travel from Jodphur to Udaipur? What is the distance? How long those the trip take place? What does it cost?
Hii.. we are a group of 10 people.. planning out a lunch partyy.. so how much will the lunch cost at lotus cafe and restaurant???
I am spending 3 nights in late October in Udaipur and wondered if that is too long what other places are worth visiting within a short distance of the city?
I'm travelling to Udaipur in mid September, and heard about mosquito issues in India in general. How bad is the situation in Udaipur, especially right after the monsoon season. And how should I prepare for it ?
What's best as a stop-over, either same day or overnight. Bundi, Ajmer?
Does anyone know about a place to watch for example Sky sports 2 (UK channel) or the Indien sport channel Ten Sports and Teen sports Live in Udaipur?
The 1/4-finals of Champions League are on tonight and tomorrow night, and I would really love to watch the games :-)

Hi everyone. I plan to stay in Udaipur for maybe 2 nights, coming from Jodphur. My final destination on my trip in October will be Mumbai and it seems sensible to maybe visit Udaipur from Jodhpur then carry on south, but the question is how? I see buses and trains go there but it will be a long journey? Can anyone recommend a inexpensive but secure and charming hotel in Udaipur?
Will be landing Udaipur on 30th of Nov in morning.
Places of Intreset- Udaipur,Nathdwara,Ranakpur,Mount Abu and Kumbalgarh.
We are college friends and is our last trip of long 5 yrs journey.So want 2 enjoy and explore maximum out of the tour.
After long discussion we have settled on Udaipur and Nathdwara.
But want 2 add one more to make a complete treat, for which i am too little confused among RanakPur, Kumbalgarh and Mount Abu,:-( Plz suggest the Itineray.
One more thing...
In Rajasthan there are elections on 1st of Dec..So will it be fine to tour at this time?.we will be travelling by private and local buses.
Also, the main spots and palaces will be open on the day of elections?..Like City Palace's Music and Light Show in the evening, Dance show at Bagore ki Haveli are the main theme of attractions.
M worried ,as is my last tour with college friends. Plz Suggest.
Thanks in anticipation.
we bunch of friends are on a trip of udaipur for two days ! best places to pay free visit are ?
Hi there, I'm an Australian photographer who's just arrived in Udaipur to do a photography project with some nearby villages. The project is great and the locals helping me are very generous and friendly, but I'd love to occasionally get out and hang out with other travelers and see some beautiful places now and then for my own sanity!
Also anyone recommend any art classes? Anyone volunteered at the animal shelter?
So anyway drop me a line if you're in Udaipur too and would have similar interests... some of the photos from the project are here -> ;
I'm here until 19th sept.
Hope you can join us in Udaipur....

Hi Vt folks,
After evaluating the travel time between flight/train/car I have planned to drive from Udaipur to Indore. Can you please tell me whether it would be a good idea? I am not sure whether highway (NH-79) is well maintained or not.
Thanks for your help !!!
I would like to get your opinions on something. My family owns one of the oldest mines in Rajasthan, one of the best soapstone and dolomite mines. Recently we were thinking about opening it to tourists who are interested, as it as a really unique experience. It has never been opened to anyone except for select family before.
It is an established mines, a hundred years old, and picture perfect. There are over 400 people working there, and not one fatality since it started ! It has also won the National Mines Safety Award by the now former President (Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam).
I wanted to know if tourists would be interested to see and experience our mines for a small fee, just to cover our expenses for providing you with a local guide to show you around.
It really is a very different experience, seeing the vast pits unfold before your eyes, hundreds of metres wide, and the way open pit mining is done. The way the mills work, blowing particles of stone to a fine talcum powder. Add a bit of perfume to that, and you have yourself some body powder that you use daily ! Rajasthan is famous for it !
It is away from the city, 7 kilometres before Nathdwara, and easily accesible by car.
Anyone who visits will also be provided with a free sample of the materials we mine ! :)

Hi, we will be spending some time in Jhadol. Does anybody know what this area is like (sight seeing, restaurants, any western supermarkets)? Thanks again!
We are a family of four (2kids 12 and 9) coming to Udaipur late June/early July for 3 nights. I know it is not the best time but that's our vacation time :( I would like to know what activities are available at this time other than sightseeing. For example: I have heard about camel safaris, desert campfires, dance programs, jeep adventures, etc. Are any of these recommended or available during my time period there? Really appreciate informative replies. Thanks a bunch!
Does anyone know if there are any supermarkets in Udaipur that sell western food such as western cereals or plain bread? Thanks!

Hi, Due to serious illnes did not make our planned trip to Udaipur during winter just gone. However, now up and running again and still in the clear!
Will be in Udaipur for 17 nights. Want to book a few nights at the Jaiwana Haveli during the stay and will also stay at Mountain Ridge at the end of our stay. Looking at one other place as well to stay that I have read good things about ie the Nukkad Guest House. Does anyone have an views of this place or , better still, stayed there and could comment please.
We are visiting in October and are scheduled to travel from Jaipur to Udaipur on a Sunday. Are there any direct flights from Jaipur to Udaipur on that day? Several sites on the internet give Jetair flight 9W709 or 9W2207 as leaving at 0700hrs and arriving at 0745hrs but I am unable to find the Jetair site at which I can book. All the search engines fail to find this flight but come up with flights via Delhi of Mumbai, typically with waits between flights of between 4 and 7 hours. Does anybody know whether Jetair flight 9W709 or 9W2207 actually exists and if so how can I book onto it? Failing that, is there a train between the 2 cities which doesn't go overnight?
Travel by road, I'm afraid, is for various reasons ruled out.
Many thanks for any help.
I understand there are some good nightly dance performances in Udaipur. Does anyone know of any really good ones and do we have to book in advance?
