Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: i travelled from Gurgaon on 19th night by car via NH8 to Jaipur, then to dausa via NH11 & from dausa to lalsot via NH11A. The road is pathetic & horrible fromJaipur to lalsot via dausa. Don't ever think of travel on this route... from lalsot to Swai Madhopur to Ranthambore is much better.
while my return journey, I took different route from lalsot to Kothun and to Jaipur via Chaksu on NH12... This part of route is much better & recommended to travel via this road from Jaipur to Swai Madhopur...
Weather is cold during winter & sufficient warm cloths are required during safari...
