But where is Chittorgarh or Chittaurgarh?
Located 315 km from Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan.
Well, I traveled around 14 hours via express train from Mumbai to Chittaurgarh junction. The nearest airport was 100 km from Chittorgarh which is in Udaipur, but I preferred the train as it saved my bucks.
Naturally, when I am traveling to new destinations, I prefer local transport over Uber or Ola Cabs. The reason is we can interact with the localites and get more information which may not be available on Google. Moreover, small towns do not have Uber or Ola cab facilities; they have private cabs or three wheeler's (rickshaws) which you can hire for a day or two. The tariffs differ but you can always negotiate.
I hired a cab in Chittorgarh (the charges were classified as per day or as per miles), trust me it is cheaper than other cities. I traveled to Chittor fort, ancient temples, and historical monuments, and enjoyed the sound and light show at the fort in the evening.
As I was in Rajasthan, how can I miss Dal baati, delicious Paratha's and Balushahi - the traditional dessert dish, my meals for a few days.
