A stretch of smooth roads lined with trees on both the sides was hubby's and my dream. We could think of no place around NCR especially when Gurgaon authorities are on a tree-felling spree. Post our trip to Sikkim in October 2018, we were planning a road trip this time. Post multiple discussions and research we zeroed in on Rajasthan. covering these three cities in the exact order- Bikaner, Jaiselmer and Nagaur. Let us help you plan a great road trip from NCR to Bikaner.
Choose the right time
Rajasthan must be visited in winters, ideally from mid September to mid March. Since temperate soars to 50 plus degree Celsius, summers is NOT the right time to visit Rajasthan, unless you are too fond of heat or want to leverage low price in the off-season.
We chose first week of March (2019) when winter was slipping away slowly before the onset of summer.
The right clothing
While summers can be harsh, winters are equally brutal. Carry clothes in cotton or breathable facbric in summers. Do not underestimate winters. From long jacket to woolen caps, you need it all.
A light sweatshirt or jacket always helps
P.S- We hadn't packed much of woolens and the first day in Bikaner was spent battling the biting cold.
The road condition from Delhi to Bikaner is excellent. Thankfully there are no potholes or unmarked bumpers. Barring a few places after Manesar, the roads are smooth. Enough greenery on both the sides of the road was soothing while the balmy sunshine caressed us on the gentle winter morning. The latter was trying to shine through the layer of fog and the weather was pleasantly cold.
There isn't much traffic on the roads which makes driving even more pleasant. he roads get crammed up when you are about to reach Bikaner.
