Neel, i wii lPM you when I head down south.

This is certainly a wonderful response. Much better than I expected.
Guys, I have PMed you all. Lets workout a mini meet along the way if possible and anyone who cannot make it to the mini meet, we can meetup quick along the way. I would like to meet as many of you BHPians as possible.

18th morn, I plan to leave Bombay by approx 7am and stopover at Palanpur on 18th night. So if you guys can post your suggestions here for a suitable meet location, we can then decide the time.

Cheers,
Jay

@everyone would love to see ya all, do PM me your details and also suggest a good entree point. Most likely, I am leaning towards a straight drive to Udaipur and that may warrant fewer stops.

I was counting up the miles, in my view it is about 764 kms from Bombay (suburbs) to Udaipur, via Udvada; I plan to go from Bombay to Udaipur via a detour to Udvada.

Now, assuming I do Bombay-Udvada on day 1 ( spend the night in Udvada) and start at 8 am from there, the approx. 580 kms to Udaipur should take me, with pit stops for food, fuel and toilet, about nine hours. Is that a correct estimate?

For calculations on distance, I have used the Eicher Road Map.

P.S. : My route would be Bombay -Dahanu - Udvada.
Then, Udavada -NH8-Baroda-NE1-Ahmedabad - NH8 - Prantij-Himmatnagar-Shamlaji-Rishabhdev-Udaipur.

Regards
Sorry for the late reply to this I have been terribly busy. Well it took me 3.5 hours from south mumbai to valsad (210 Kms) and then from there to Udaipur is about 600 kms. which took us 6 hours. We only made one stop at valsad at our farmhouse and we picked up packed food for the way to shave off time. It helped that my dad and brother were also driving so we did about 3 hours for each person.

Longford,

I will be doing Udaipur-Chittaurgarh-Kumbhalgarh-Mount Abu ( basically the Mewar circuit) next year. As a result of my searches for hotel accommodation, I have come to the conclusion that I should set up Udaipur as a base and make day long trips from there. So I am planning a day long trip to Ranakpur-Kumbhalgarh. Any inputs on the route from Udaipur to Ranakpur and thence to Kumbhalgarh? How much time will the route take? How much time should one spend in Kumbhalgarh?

Also anyone here with inputs on very, very clean hotels in Mount Abu, with lifts or with rooms (doubles) on the ground floor, with minimum climbing of stairs?

Regards

issigonis,

Will definitely get you the details on the road state and timings there after the 25th.
Will be leaving on the 18th and be in Udaipur till 23rd. During my stay at udaipur, will be visiting Ranakpur and Chitaurgarh et al.

Anyway I am staying in Kumbalgarh for 3 nights, so may do the fort visit during that stay.

Hope to do some twitter and facebook updates en route. Wish TBHP had a mobile client version; could have updated there as well.

Saw a good looking hotel called Palanpur Palace Resort in Mt Abu. Looked cool and comfortable. Here is the link The Palanpur Palace - Mount Abu offers the most spacious rooms & suites among

Longford,

Thank you. Will check your posts re. Kumbhalgarh.

Re. Palanpur, have beaten you to it - checked it out on the web but you see what you see on the web mayn't be what you get- caveat emptor

Regards

I think you are planning to start this trip on 18th. As soon as you reach surat, give me a call. We will then decide where to meet.

Nisarg,

There's been a change of plans. Sadly a relative of his has passed away and hence the trip has been postponed as of now.
