Default Re: Delhi To Jaisalmer : Route Queries

I am just back from my Gurgaon - Jodhpur - Jaisalmer - Bikaner - Mandawa - Gurgaon trip. HAd a lot of fun - update on the road conditions.

Gurgaon - Jodhpur

Took the Gurgaon - Jaipur - Ajmer - Beawar - Jodhpur route.

Amazing roads all along. Had initially planned to stop at Ajmer and then continue to Jodhpur next day - but ditched that plan and continued to Jodhpur the same day.

This route does have a lot of toll - around Rs. 400 worth.

Jodhpur - Jaisalmer

Took Jodhpur - Osian - Phalodi - Pokhran - Jaisalmer route

Between Pokhran and Jaisalmer road repair work is going on - and the road condition is bad.
Other than that stretch - the roads are good.

Jaisalmer - Bikaner

Took the route - Jaisalmer - Pokhran - Phalodi - Bikaner
Between Pokhran and Jaisalmer road repair work is going on - and the road condition is bad.
Other than that stretch - the roads are good.

Bikaner - Mandawa

Took the route - Bikaner - Ratangarh - Fatehpur - Mandawa

Fatehpur to Mandawa the roads are horrible (around 10-15km stretch) other than that good roads

Mandawa - Gurgaon

Took the Mandawa - Jhunjhunu - Chirawa - Loharu - Jhajjhar - Gurgaon route

Good roads. There are some small stretches with bad roads -- but not horrible, did not need to slow down as i was in a Scorpio.
But they are single roads - don't have divider in between. However, i think better than taking NH8 as it avoids all the traffic on NH8

Thanks.

Can one expect Jaisalmer to be packed with tourists (from NCR and Gujarat) over the Independence Day weekend next month (August 12-15)?

Jaisalmer is a far-off destination for most folks in NCR and most do not even go to Jaisalmer on the first day so expect less crowd from NCR. Jaipur would see maximum influx given the significantly less travel time.

However, Gujarat border is about 300 kms but don't forget, most Gujarat tourists would flock to Mount Abu and Udaipur instead because freedom to drink (which is a major agenda of vacation for people from Gujarat) and less distance.

I think you should be good but please keep a tab on the weather because if its hot, you just can't enjoy Jaisalmer.

Maybe talk to a few hotel owners? Should give you an idea about the rush. Even if there is availability for the first day, the dunes maybe crowded.
