please advise 11 day itinerary in Rajasthan July

Hey all

How does this sound? (I know July is hot but that's when we can go... done it before)

day 1 Delhi-Jaipur train no 2015 arrives 10.45

days 2- Jaipur

day 3 Jaipur to Ajmer train 2015 and on to Pushkar arrives 12.00

days4-5 Pushkar

day 6 Pushkar to Udaipur train 2965 arrives 06.10

day 7-8 Udaipur

Day 9 Udaipur to Agra train 2916 arrives 10.52

Day 10 Agra

Day 11 any train back to Delhi

I prefer to see less places and get into them rather than to dash madly from A to B in the heat!

thanks

Have just discovered this forum and registered. I am very interested in replies regarding this itinerary as I am just beginning to do the homework to plan an itinerary for myself. However, I dont plan to travel until late 2010/ early 2011 but like to research thoroughly before I go. Am thinking of a 28 day tour, and so far transport seems to be most difficultto get infomraiton for. I am still undecided whether to hire a car and driver ow use trains and buses. Any site suggestions?

On a 28 day tour a mix of both trains and taxis is probably best. Travelling by car is OK but it's no more comfortable for long distances than a good class of train travel.

And certainly no faster, it also leaves you a bit cocooned and regimented in what should be your holiday.

Hi

that looks like a perfect choice of destinations. Its wise to be traveling by trains during summers in India, just make sure you get the air- conditioned compartments.

In my view you are spending far too much time in Pushkar and the time would be better spent exploring the surrounds of Udaipur.

I was in Rajasthan this July in Udaipur and Jaipur. It was crazy hot. Get all sightseeing done in the early morning and late evening. The afternoons are literally impossible outdoors.

Yep Pushkar is one of those love it/hate it kind of destinations. And very easy to see in a day anyway.

Udaipur is more kind of one size fits all and has a bit more to see and do.

However if you want to kickback and see some of Rural India then Pushkar has the edge. The tourist bungelow for instance is in a mini Palace of sorts and is a great place to unwind it its lovely garden..

Walk to the other side of the lake to see timeless India, in a truly rural setting. Wwalk through the marigold and rose fields, or take the steep stepped path upto the temple for a great view over Pushkar.

The bazaar on the other hand may drive you to distraction, with the ray ban toting Bramhin Oundits, trying to part you from your hard earned cash. With tales of guilt and karma.....................

Without knowing you, I would go with longer in Udaipur unless you are planning a camel trek or something (phew good luck in July)
