Udaipur - Ranakpur - Mt Abu - Jodhpur

Hello,

I have about 6 days and would like to visit all these places. My idea is

Day 1: Udaipur local SS

Day 2: Udaipur local SS

Day 3: Start from Udaipur around 8 to reach Kumbhalgarh by 10am. After Kumbalgarh, go to Ranakpur by lunch time, visit the temples here and start as early as possible and drive to Mt. Abu. Reach Mt Abu by night fall. Overnight at Mt Abu

Day 4: All day in Mt Abu and drive to Jodhpur by Night

Day 5: Jodhpur Local SS

Day 6: jodhpur Local SS

Does this look doable? Also, I ve read that driving from Udaipur to Mt Abu is not safe during night and that the scenery is also worth watching during day time. Can you please suggest how I can accomodate all this? I am flexible wrt mode of transport. Car/Train/Bus is all fine :-)

Yes the section from Jaswantgarh to Pindwara is unsafe. You can drive Ranakpur to Abu via Sadri, Sanderao, Sirohi

hi,

i will suggest you to go in day time from udaipur to mount-abu,and even in day time better to go via ranakpur-sadri-falna-sanerao-sirohi-mount-abu.

in day time you can visit on the way beautifull ranakpur jain temples and hreat beautifull nature with green mountains.

to travel in night specially via jaswantgarh-pindwara will be not safe.avoid it.

vijay.

Hey

May I ask what exactly is the issue with driving in the night through this route in the night?? My friends and I do trips in Rajasthan all the time and it would be handy to know.

Thanks

Thanks everyone ... The ranakpur-sadri-falna-sanerao-sirohi-mount-abu route shows 2 hrs 40 mins on google maps. Is it a good estimate or will it take longer?

I still have doubts if we can cover Kumbhalgarh and Ranakpur and start from Ranakpur by 4:00 PM. If so then we should be able to reach Mt Abu by 8:00 PM latest. Am I correct?

If you suggestions for a different itenerary please post them. We can start early from Udaipur

Don't get to Ranakpur before 12pm because the visits for non Jains are only from 12 to 17.00

I agree with Mr. Hooda

No issues with night time travel on the Udaipur - Abu road stretch. The Highway is super and there is quite a lot of traffic on that stretch.

Secondly if you travel from Ranakpur to Mt. Abu during the dark hours, you'll miss out on the lovely scenery once the climb starts from Abu Road

I can suggest a stopover at a lovely place, more of a homestay. Its called leopards lair at a place called Bera ( Beda village ) If you reach there by late noon around 4 ish, you can go for a leopard sighting safari in the evening and mostly there is a 90% chance of sighting a leopard

Next morning you can leave for Mt. Abu - via Abu road and reach your hotel around the chk in times. Reaching the previous night, you'll waste a days tariff just for a nights sleep.

Sounds good ?

Thakur Devisinh, the owner knows these highway and inner road stretches in and out and he can also assist you and guide you on the best route to reach there.

Have a stay at leopard's lair and i am sure you'll leave with wonderful memories.
