Awesome travelogue buddy
Just one question, had you made any prior reservations with Club Mahindra or were they just walk ins ? Asking this because I have a white membership and using Club Mahindra is a pain as I have to book atleast 3-4 months in advance.
Lonavala Lake Pawna is always full so are their Goa properties.
Is that not the case with Rajasthan ?
Also how was the food arrangements?

Very detailed with beautiful photographs. Rajasthan is a state I would love to visit again. The highways are so welcoming with backdrops of beautiful landscapes.
5 stars
Thanks a lot Arunashish!

It must take a lot of patience to do long drives on these road tanks due to not-so-good highway touring abilities so hats off to you for such a long-long drive.

Keep driving.
Thanks YoungSaint! Yes driving a Bolero on the highways has made me a lot more patient

Nevertheless, you had fun, and that is what matters. What was your FE and at what speeds on the highways?
No n.devdath, not much real dune driving. Getting stuck at Kuldhara without anybody in the vicinity had shaken me up a bit, so did not take much chance on the Sam dunes. Ventured a little bit but that's it.

Highway speeds were 110 max, and FE hovered around 12.5 throughout the journey.

Thanks dean5545. I am a Club Mahindra member and had prior bookings. The only time I can remember that I visited CMH without a booking was while returning from Ladakh. We requested the CMH Manali to let us stay for one night and they had obliged. I too have a white membership and I try to visit during off seasons, so getting accommodation is not that difficult.
Food arrangement has been good in most of CMH properties.
