Default Bangalore to Rajasthan

Dear All

After doing Bnagalore - Bhutan in 2007, we are doing Bnagalore - Rajasthan in Dec 08.

The route we are taking is:

I welcome your advise on road conditions, route, places to see enroute (I am covering the car museum in Ahmedabad) and highway dhabas & must eats!

I am reachable at ateet.jayaswal@gmail.com

I would strongly suggest you add Jodhpur in your itenary ,its a must see place ,post ahmedabad you can head to jodhpur ( you can do udaipur on your way back)..

Dont miss visiting the majestic mehrangarh fort ,if you are in jodhpur.

Jaisalmer is a treat ,and you can always live in the tents in the middle of the desert.they are very spacious and the hospitality is excellent.do the desert safari on the camel as well...

Nothing much to see in bikaner ,incase you are the religious type ,do visit the karni devi temple in deshnok ,which is like 30 odd km from bikaner ,the temple is also famous for the numerous rats which roam around in it ,and if u happen to spot a white rat ,consider yourself blessed and lucky.( i coudnt).

The road from baroda to ahmedabad is simply awesome ,jst like the mumbai -pune expressway ,driving from surat to pune will be a pain as the 6 lane work is in progress.

do visit the many travelogues on this forum for actual pictures of the road condition...

enjoy your trip! will wait to see you post your travelogue with pictures...

I suppose you are returning to Bangalore also in the same route. If that is so, you can plan as follows:

You can see the route in the following log book of mine:

H V Kumar - Driving Log Books - KUMAR'S DRIVING LOG BOOKS Rajasthan, Dec 2000

Road conditions are great throughout. Facilities are poor outside the big towns, which are also few and far between. Speeds are high, and you can cover 700-800 kms a day easily.

Amdavad ma car museum? You gotto be kidding me.

I would say this:
Amdavad - Abu - Udaipur/Kumbhalgarh/Nathdwara - Jodhpur - Jaisalmer - Bikaner - Jaipur - rip back.

Why Delhi for the love of God?

Never heard of a car museum in AMD. Heard of some textile museum. If there is something that I am missing please enlighten us. There are two popular places for tourists in AMD. One is Gandhiji's Shabarmati Ashram and the other is Akshardham temple.

You never posted the travelogue of the Bhutan trip. Lot of avid travelogue readers have an axe to grind there.

Mumbai to Delhi is the GQ on NH8 and excellent all through. As suggested include Jodhpur in your itinerary and you shall not regret. The majestic Mehrangarh, elegant Ummed Bhawan and serene Kailana Lake are something that you'll cherish forever.

Hi Recker us,

Best route (quickest not shortest) is:

Bangalore to Mumbai (NH4 via Tumkur, Chitradurga, Haveri, Dharwar, Belgaum, Kolhapur, Satara and Pune ). NH 8 from Bombay to Baroda via Navsari, Surat, Bharuch . National Expressway 1 from Vadodara to Ahmedabad. NH 8 from Ahmedabad to Udaipur via Himmatnagar. NH 76 from Udaipur to Chittor. NH 79 from Chittor to Nasirabad via Bhilwara. Connecting NH from Nasirabad to Kishangarh (bypassing Ajmer). NH 8 (Kishangarh - Jaipur express Highway) to Jaipur.
