Trip Report India in November

Jump to last reply

I am starting a new thread for the trip report but details of the help I have received getting ready for the journey are on "Independent Travel in India"..Many thanks to all.

Well to begin..We arrived at Delhi about 10.30 am on our Thai International flight but then waited for our next flight to Udaipur. on Airindia..This was a very good deal at 40aud each but was due to fly out in 5 hours time. As it turned out there was an extra 1.5 hour wait but by then we had taken possession of one of the very comfortable lounges just outside the boarding gate for our flight. The lounges are scattered all along the boarding gate area so it is worth looking further afield if you don't have one nearby. Apart from these lounges we could find nowhere to put our feet up at Delhi airport . The visitors lounge is not open to travellers and officials there couldn't tell us where we could find a lounge.

Well finally , quite well rested we arrived at Udaipur but in the dark of night and without the expected aerial view of Rajasthan. However, good news, as the driver from Jaiwana Haveli was there to pick us up, despite the delay.. We paid a fair price for the pickup.about 600R. It was about a 40 minute trip.

We spent 4 nights in Udaipur. Jaiwana Haveli was booked as were most of our hotels through priced..about 50aud. . It was beautifully located next to Lake Pichola with superb views of the Plalace from the rooftop restaurant...Be ready for the stairs ..quite a few but all in beautifully maintained marble. If you needed to rest and relax this was a perfect spot. Our room was at ground level, was spacious and comfortable with a small window looking out onto a ferry pier and another onto a courtyard..Other corner rooms have fabulous views apparently.

In Udaipur we took a guided tour of the City Palace following the directions of our most gracious Hotel owner and manager., Harsh, .and saw and very much enjoyed the Dharohar dancers at the Bagore Museum...visited the Jagdish temple via the entrance at the rear, avoiding all those steps. Other than that we just enjoyed the intriguing streeets of Udaipur., the leather ware and miniature paintings...We were able to find plenty to see by foot and didn't need any other transport .

Through the hotel we booked a car to drive us to Jodhpur via Ranakpur and Kumbalgarh. This was at a very reasonable.cost.about 60aud we only paid for the one way journey.
