Your itty. in India seems ok to me. Jaisalmer to Jaipur is long distance prefer to travel by train or if you drive then can have a night halt at some place in between.

My husband and I have been to India 5 times, each time for a month or so. You will love it.

We have discovered that distances in India are so great that it's easy to spend too much of your available time just getting from place to place. Some longish train rides are overnighters (always interesting), which free up your days (internal flights usually eat up a lot more of a day than expected, but if the distance is really far, a flight is best). We rely on our Indian travel agent to arrange our internal transportation, and he always chooses the best option. The added benefit is that we then don't have to worry about hiring reliable drivers or taxis on our own, and if there is ever a problem, we know that our travel agent will solve it. It certainly makes our trips more relaxing, and the extra cost, if there is any, is minimal. And he will choose the best of whatever kind of desert trip you desire and coordinate everything. I can give you our travel agent's (SPHolidays) contact information if you are interested. And if you find someone similar in Thailand or Cambodia, I would love it if you could share it.

Have a wonderful trip!

Dear Sir/ Madam,

I will suggest you to hire a car from day33 to day 51 for rajadthan as there are do many things to visit on the way.

Jaisalmer to jaipur is a long way 650kms/10 hrs so you can have train if you wish.

Your itinerary seems great.

Wish you a happy journey in advance.
