I can recommend good places to visit, as last Jan I visited Rajasthan. You can cover Fatehpur lake, monsoon palace, City palace in Udaipur. Also good dinner place- Lake pichola. Definitely visit Nataraj Thali for good Rajasthani thali
Hello, I recently went on a trip to Udaipur and Jaipur. For hostels, you can stay at Zostel or Moustache hostels as they are budget friendly & located in the heart of the city. 4-5 days are not sufficient for both Jaipur & Udaipur but you definitely see the famous spots. You can rent a scooty in both the cities or book an auto for each day. In Jaipur, definitely visit
•Jaigarh Fort In Udaipur • city palace- it’s has many palaces inside the museum & can do boating too at Lake Pichhola (tickets can be bought from inside the city palace complex).
The boating will take you to JagMandir palace •Bagore ki haveli( in the evening for Dharohar folk dance show at 7pm) •Gangaur ghar is near Bagore ki haveli
• Monsoon palace •Bahubali Hills (you can read my blog for the details) •Fateh sagar lake Hope this helped.
when you visit udaipur... don't forget to visit kumbalgarh fort. Though it is little far from city but you will definitely love it..
in one day you can cover pichola, city palace and fateh sagar lake. also, you can try to go to pipliya village, it is in the aravali and way to that village is beautiful and village itself is picturesque, in the way there is a popular shiv temple-ubeshwar ji maharaj.
visit Monsoon palace in the morning from there you can go to fateh sagar for boating and then city palace and night dinner at pichola.
for stay you can book zostel lies near pichola hence you will encounter good crowd. for transport---
1) rent a scooty(rates 300 or 400 for the day) or
2) book a auto(450)- they will take u to specific famous tourist spots- it is 6 or 7 seater...
Light and sound show
Sambhar lake, 80 km from jaipur
If u r going by your own car, prefer not to hire a taxi for Nahargarh, Amer, they overcharge
Mount Abu ( hire a bike to go dere, it will be awesome trip as there are many sunset point you can visit)
I recently had a trip of Jaipur, Udaipur, Ajmer and Pushkar. The trip was total of 6 days.
2 days for Jaipur, 2 for Udaipur and 2 for rest. To begin with Jaipur, If you're a student, carry an ID Card and once you reach any city tourist spot, ask authority to make a pass that allows you inside all the spots.
The charge for a student is 10% of what other pay.
For all other people it is 400 and for students the pass cost 40 Rs. only. (So you must take your STUDENT ID CARD)
The central attractions like Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall Meusem, Jal Mahal etc. can be viewed easily by general transport, as they are in the main city. To visit Forts like Jaigarh and Nahargarh, I'll recommend you take hire a bike/scooty because the travel path is long and must be enjoyed like a road trip, you need to travel a path uphill and can enjoy the beauty of the way. On reaching the sites you can easily park your vehicle inside by paying a nominal fee.
The main problem with using a general transport to visit Fort is that once you reach, the return journey is uncertain based on availability of bus, and private vehicle owners charge a lot.
So this sums up your Jaipur tour, do visit Chowki Dhani to enjoy Rajasthani Culture.
For me Udaipur Travel can be limited to use of Ola Auto, I'll share the fare details first, for normal commute they charge 40 Rs per head so it's cheap and affordable, try to depend on Ola Auto, the fares are almost same.
Now places to visit -Lake Pichola (try to visit the Lakes in Evening, don't go in Noon, you'll be tired due to Scorching heatwaves).
Fateh Sagar Lake is a must visit in evening, you'll love the Rajasthani cuisine and see the beauty of Rajasthan there.
Saheliyon ki Bari and Jagdish Temple are a good place to visit, if you wanna see culture, painting, arts and heritage.
I also went to Shilp Gram (100 Rs Ticket) - there you'll witness all types of Houses made and decorated for Showcasing, all culture and ways which Rajasthani People dwell into. Inside at Central place, there is a stage where various groups perform, you can spend your time there and enjoy Rajasthani dance.( It is a vast area and you can visit it in morning to avoid strong Sun)
You can also visit various Ghats present to see and hear localities play music with their instrument and drown in the melody.
Sajjangarh Palace is a good place to visit, the charges are high . They'll charge you and provide you vehicle to go up and come down. At Sajjangarh I didn't find much Versatile things to witness, it's a simple place. If you don't have much time, I can say you can skip this place .
I hope so you found this useful, you can ping me here or on IG : @captain.minion for any feedback/questions.
