Dear Laluks,

I am visiting Jodhpur/ Udaipur/ Kumbalgarh in October (23rd Oct to 29th Oct). Your travelogue was one of the key motivation for the tour (the other being the travelogue by Fauji). I assume you will be posting the details of the hotels, tariffs etc., BTW, did you take the renowned audio tour at Mehrangarh fort? How was it and what is the cost?

Can you also share the contact details of the travel agent who rented you the Tempo Traveller. What was the cost (per KM)?

What is the photographer's intent / focus here?
Is it

OR is our guy just an over the top tech geek going Nikon Nikon same pinch

Thanks Mahesh.
Yes I will post the details of the hotels and cost once I finish the log. Currently for each location I have given the name of the hotel where we stayed and its internet link. If you see the log till now you could get them. We booked by July our stay in December, and we got good rates, we also used all deals on credit and debit cards to the fullest while booking. We got a decent 20% discounts like that on the rack rates.

I have posted the details of the tempo traveller in one of the earlier posts,
Please find the details of Abhay Travels here for your quick reference.

I was quite surprised when I saw this statue. But the surroundings where I saw this statue were not great, I feel he commands more respect to be atleast at a decent location
