Day 1

Golden fort is hardly 10min walk from hotel.
Tried the famous item 'Dal Pakwan' just before the fort entry gate.
Fort is actually a mini city inbuilt inside, completely different than other forts. Residence,Market,temple,food,hotel can be found all inside.
This fort colour varies in different part of a day,amazing.
View of city from top was amazing.

Next destination is Sam's sand dunes.It is 40km from jaisalmer city.
We have plan of 1 night stay at desert.
Drive through beautifull road between deserts to resort.
Checked in at 'Desert nature resort'.Very good ambience inside resort with swiss tent accomodation.
Instantly we went for Jeep safari inside desert.Wonderfull experiance,bit terrified though riding roller coaster drive.
Next is Camel safari in desert.
Returned at evening to resort.
The mini package of adventure in desert was exciting.
Cultural evening with snacks,tea,drinks just about to start inside.Well organised programme.
Throughly enjoyed desert chilling cold along with it.Dinner also included in tariff.

Day 2

We have plan for Jodhpur from here around 250km drive.
After complementary breakfast,we start our drive for next destination.

Drive was preety good in this rajasthan road.Reached jodhpur around 4pm,went directly to Mehrangarh Fort.
As we are tired of visiting forts in last 5days in rajasthan,we cut short our visit of this fort to 1hr.
It is a good fort with nice view of city.
Find a hotel nearby and decided to take rest for the day.

So we went to Jaswant Thada in the morning and skip Umaid Bhawan Palace here in jodhpur to save time.

We start our 250km drive to bikaner.Road was marvelous & we reached bikaner in 4hrs.
Have our lunch at Laxmi Niwas palace.We are so overjoyed with the ambience that we stayed here for almost 3 hrs.
We have no other plan in bikaner and delhi is 500km from here.So we decided to drive till 8pm to shorten distance from delhi.
After 150km,we reached ratangarh and take a halt for night.Checked in at a highway hotel.

Day 4

Todays plan is drive 350km to home.Road was good,we bypass jaipur on road and reached home at delhi by evening.

Highways in rajasthan are normally with 80km speed limit.But one can drive at 140km easily.These highways are paradise for car driver. Lots of traffic police with speedometer will be there on highway and fine is compulsory.
We have been fined twice.
Be carefull.
