6 nights Jodhpur & Udaipur

We'll arrive to Jodphur from Mumbai in the early afternoon, planed to spend 3 nights in Jodhpur. On the 4th day we were planning to take a taxi from Jodhpur to Udaipur, vist Ranakpur (temples) and the Fort on the way. Therefore arrival to Udaipur would be in the evening. Then we would stay 3 nights in Udaipur, on the last day take a very early morning flight back to Mumbai.

Does this sound reasonable or would you shorten the stay in Jodhpur and/or Udaipur to spend one or two nights in Ranakpur?

In case we would stay in Ranakpur, how would it work with the taxi? Would the same driver stay with us for 2/3 days or would we have to take a taxi from Jodhpur to Ranakpur and find a new one from Ranakpur to Udaipur?

Dear visitors

As per your feedback about 6 nights! Its much to cover all activities with night hold in ranakpur or kumbhalgarh. Maybe you can hold two nights in jodhpur and then on the way visit ranakpur jain temple and night in kumbhalgarh. Kumbhalgarh to Udaipur and enjoy your time around udaipur leisurely. Of course you hire reliable chauffeur for your entire itinerary, it's better and more flexible if you want to visit some local monuments. I suggest take one car with reliable driver fm to arrival/departure.

Thanks

I would suggest you to shorten your stay in Jodhpur to 2 days, cause it can be covered in one day and the second day you can visit the out skirts like osian or Bishnoi village safari.

You can spend a night at Kumbhalgarh and not Ranakpur.

You should hire a taxi for the whole trip as it will be cheaper.

I think 2 days are enough for Udaipur. and the remaining one day you should visit Chittaurgarh fort...

taxis are available for Chittaurgarh from Udaipur.....

Hi Nimbera,

thanks for the advise. I've got a question: we're arriving Dec. 18th. Wouldn't it be too cold for the desert night?

We'll arrive to Jodhpur by 9W at 13:20. So until we're out of the airport it's 14:00. 2 hrs drive means we would arrive 16:00. Isn't this too late to do the camel ride etc.?

Its best to keep the same driver for the entire trip. You get to know the driver and the driver gets to understand your style of travel. Yes it would be a good idea to break with a night in Ranakpur, very peaceful place.
