Nice road with lot of toll but any way good experience. Nice road, side dhabas and public utilities are missing. Local food dhabas serving Dal yellow and tandoori are the best with raw onion makes you feel real desi. Petrol pumps are also in good numbers. Must taste kachoris at bar and have dahi badas at sandra.
Driving to Jodhpur is always fun. Road network is very good in Rajasthan so its comfortable to drive alone. Lots of dhabas on way, so you can relax and take a break whenever you need. At night traffic is really less so would advise you to drive at night. And of course the route is very safe.
Train arrived on time. Timing of this train was perfect. It is always on time. Toilets were clean. And the most important thing is that accommodation, It was fair enough. Seats were in good condition. All compartment of train was clean. Jodhpur city is "Sun city" or "Blue City". This city is greenery.
The bus was brilliantly cleaned, seats were perfect. And the driver and conductor was too good and kind in talking. My journey to jodhpur became memorable by such experience. I suggest you guys to try the same. And yes dont forget to get some discounts while booking. The scenario outside the bus of Royal Rajasthan was a eye catching site. I was totally stucked at the moment.
I was vacationing in Rajathan with my family last winter. We took the Ranthambore Express to travel from Jaipur to Jodhpur and it is my most memorable train journey.
There are numerous other trains available between two cities, the distance being a mere 348 km. Ranikhet Express, Corbet Prk Link, Marudhar Express and many more trains assist tourists in this enchanting holiday destination.
The Ranthambore Express, leaves Jaipur at 5:00 Pm and taking 5 hours and 15 minutes, reaches Jodhpur at 10:15 Pm. The train arrived on time and left Jaipur junction exactly at 5 O clock.
The convenient timing is what sets this train apart from other options because Rajasthan afternoons are rather hot for any sightseeing but can be used to travel between destinations and when you reach Jodhpur at night, the temperature is pleasant and the sand cool and appealing under your bare feet.
I was very tired with our morning expedition in Jaipur so I decided to take a nap.
What woke me up an hour later was a Peacock's cry, I peered quickly outside my window to see a bunch of beautiful, colourful, breathtaking Peacocks who had lined themselves up, along the railway tracks calling out to each other as if to wave to the passing train as we did in our childhood.
I was still reeling in my awe when I noticed sand on my hand. I saw with a start that the gorgeous soft sand had slipped in through the hard iron window bars and produced an exquisite golden blanket on all things in that rather boring Railway compartment turning it all magical.
Sand on your Railway berth and Peacocks amidst the long stretches of sand dunes is not what everyone gets to witness on a routine train journey.
Rajasthan is hot all round the year but it was November and quite chilly, so we took the sleeper class, which was a comfortable accommodation. The train was well-maintained with charging points and clean toilets.
We reached Jodhpur at its scheduled time that was 10:15 Pm.
It was the most fantastic train journey I have ever made and I am sure it will surprise and spellbind all its travellers.
Jodhpur is situated at a distance of 331 km from Jaipur. Referred to as the 'Gateway to Thar', Jodhpur is well connected to Jaipur by road and train. However, the best way to reach Jodhpur from Jaipur is by road, a journey of about 7 hours by bus. On the way are several rest stops, ATMs, hospitals and fast food joints. There are also various dhabas on the route serving traditional Rajasthani dishes such as 'ghewar' and 'daal bhatti churma'.
