Default Random Pics of the trip:

This is the 1st floor of the Roopangarh palace. The entrance of the Queens suite is the door next to the man standing in the pic. The dining hall is in the foreground. Its a enormous hall with a 25 feet tall ceiling. There is a tennis court in here too (they have antique wooden tennis raquests too)

Ok, does not look like Gagron either. Though Gagron is where Kile ka Rahasya was shot

Oh cool. I did'nt know where 'Kile ka Rahasya' was shot, but sure was a scary serial. This fort reminded me a lot of that place with small ledges and huge walls.

Was scouting for Rajasthan travelogues and had to dig this out!

Your travelogue got me totally pumped up for my upcoming trip on a similar route, only starting from Bangalore.
Planning on staying at Desert Tulip in Jaisalmer and for the New Years at Prince Desert Camp. Still looking for an overnight stay in Udaipur.

Also, thanks for the references to Byomkesh Bakshi - am gonna watch this on youtube now! awesome!

Have a question - with all the driving up and down and sigh-seeing, did you feel stressed out any point? I read your 15 hour on-slaught was covered w/o fatigue. What about the overall trip in general?

Great travelogue! Rated 5 stars!
Cheers!

Hey Andy,
Glad you liked the log...Rajasthan is a beautiful place to drive through and stay around. About the driving fatigue, I always plan to do a 1000km drive on the first day and then take it easy thereafter (have done this thrice now). A midnight start from Mumbai and a break around evening the next day ..around 16-18 hrs on the road with a few breaks here and there.
There is absolutely no fatigue if there is good company, good roads and some red bull for company. I always factor in a rest day after every 3-4 days of driving on such road trips. On these restdays, I generally hire a bike or travel around using rickshaws and give myself and the car a break!!

Will be glad to be of help in your planning. Ping me if needed.

Regards,
Nikhil.
