How to Reach Rajasthan

How to get there by Air

Jodhpur, Jaipur and Udaipur are the cities with airports that are connected by regular flights to Delhi and Mumbai. Taxis, airport to city buses, auto rickshaws and tourist taxis are available outside these airports for the ride into the city. Some hotels will also arrange pick-ups for their reserved guests.

How to get there by Rail

Rajasthan is well connected on the vast network of Indian railways. Express, superfast and mail trains go on regular scheduled runs to cities like Jaipur, Ajmer, Kota, Bundi, Sawai Madhopur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Udaipur and Chittaurgarh. Trains from Calcutta, Mumbai and Delhi ply daily services to different cities and towns of Rajasthan. Besides, there is the legendary `Palace on Wheels’ that will take you around Rajasthan in royal style.

Touring in Regal Splendour - Palace on Wheels

A thrilling way to discover this state of erstwhile maharajas and rajas is to travel by the legendary Palace on Wheels. This special train is made up of 14 air-conditioned saloons, each having two twin-bedded and two double-bedded chambers, with attached toilets, hot & cold showers, channel music and specially designed furniture. From the moment you step on board, smartly liveried bearers wait you on as the train moves from Delhi to Jaipur, Chittorgarh, Udaipur, Sawai Madhopur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bharatpur and Agra before completing the circuit at Delhi. It is seven nights and eight days of pure magic as you see a slice of Rajasthan - historical monuments, golden desert sands, flora and fauna, folk dance and music -- and experience how it must have felt to be a maharaja.

The Palace moves at night and stops through the day when you are taken around the cities, by air-conditioned luxury coach, seeing the sights and savouring the traditional Rajput hospitality. The Maharaja and Maharani restaurant cars serve Indian, Rajasthani and Continental cuisine. The added attractions are an excellent bar and a small, but well stocked library. It is only the gentle, rhythmic movement of the train and the vendors that come selling their attractive wares at the stations that give away that you are on a train and not in a palace.

How to get there by Road

Rajasthan is connected by well-maintained National Highways to the neighbouring states of Delhi, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Haryana and Uttar Pradesh. Rajasthan roadways buses run regular and deluxe coaches to these states. The roads are four lane highways in most places with enroute halts, rest stations, restaurants and gas and service stations. Travel and tour operators run a number of conducted tours to the many tourist destinations in Rajasthan. For those interested in driving themselves around the state, remember that traffic drives on the right of the road and international driving licenses or at the very least current local licenses are mandatory.
