I am excluding Kumbhalgarh for it seems that it has so many sights that I may not be able to do justice over a night's stay.

Therefore my trip now looks like this :

Day 1 : Bombay - Ahmedabad : 529 kms approx.
Day 2 : Ahmedabad -Mehsana -Palanpur-Abu Road- Pindwara-Sirohi-(detour for Jawai dam)-Pali-Jodhpur : 465 kms approx
Days 3,4,5 : Jodhpur
Day 6: Jodhpur-Pali-Sanderao-Falna-Sadri-Ranakpur-Sanderao-Sirohi-Pindwara-Abu Road-Palanpur-Mehsana-Ahmedabad - 573 kms approx
Day 7: Ahmedabad
Day 8 : Ahmedabad - Bombay : 529 kms approx

Should I consider the Ahmedabad - Himmatnagar -Idar-Khedbrahma-Abu Road-Pindwara-Sirohi-Sumerpur (detour to Jawai dam & back)-Pali-Jodhpur? Is this route better by way of better surfaces and/or less traffic?

Hi,

You need not take the Himatnagar route to reach Abu road.

If you are on SG Highway, then head off to Gandhinagar and take a left at Adalaj, before the flyover.

That will take you straight via Mehsana to Palanpur - Abu road.

Do let me know if any additional info required, would be great to meet up. I stay near SG Highway.

Default Query for Ranakpur / Kumbhalgarh

Hi,

I am planning to make a road trip with family in the upcoming vacations season to Gujrat and Rajasthan. The tentative route I have decided is as follows.

Day 1: Mumbai to Ahemadabad (visiting a relative)
Day 2: Ahemadabad sightseeing
Day 3: Ahemadabad to Modhera Sun Temple then to Mount Abu
Day 4: Abu Sightseeing
Day 5: Mount Abu to Ranakpur then to Kumbhalgarh Fort
Day 6: Kumbhalgarh to Udaipur in the morning and the Udaipur sightseeing
Day 7: Udaipur to Vadodara (visiting a relative)
Day 8: Vadodara Sightseeing
Day 9: Vadodara to Mumbai

Strictly no night driving.

Is this route and the days allocated ok or too hectic for a family road trip ?

Shall I stay at Kumbhalgarh or drive straight through to Udaipur after visiting the Fort ? Is the Sound and Light show at Kumbhalgarh Fort really worth ?

Recommendations for accommodation and other places worth visiting are highly welcome.

Regards

Awaiting updates.

Also heard that while passing from Gujarat, some yellow strip needs to be attached to the headlights. Is it correct ?
