Udaipur - Nathdwara - Kumbhalgarh Fort - Ranakpur - Udaipur

Hello,

Is it possible to do Udaipur - Nathdwara - Kumbhalgarh Fort - Ranakpur - Udaipur in one day?

We were thinking of starting at 8:00 am and spending ~ 2 hours at each location.

Also howmuch should an indica/indigo cost for the trip? I've been quoted Rs. 2,000 for 250 kms for an AC Indigo.

Is that a good price?

Any recommendations on where to book the car?

Thank you.

The route you are talking about is approx 250 kms long and driving through these routes will alone take close to 6 hours. Halts of 2 hour at each destinations means additional 6 hours. Then add eating time and other refreshments which may take say 1-2 hours.

In total it will take 14 hours.

Now the thing is do you want to just touch these destinations or you actually want to explore them. Depending upon your priority you may decide whether you want to cover it on same day.

My personal suggestion is to give it 2 days.

But I suppose you are interested in covering Jain Temples only. SO with luck you can cover them in a single day but it will be tiring.

Cheers!

Thanks Nikhil!

Originally I was planning to do Ranakpur and Kumbhalgarh on one day and Nathdwara on the 2nd day but based on Google Maps it looks like we'll have to pass Nathdwara even if we are doing Ranakpur and Kumbhalgarh so we may as well try to squeeze it in.

Any recommendations on where to book the car?

Thanks again!

Hello Yogendra,

Thanks a lot for the detailed information. Any recommendations on where to book the car?

It will be 2 of us in the car. Is an Indigo OK for the journey?

Hi

Indigo will be ok for two

To recommend some one on TA without using the services. Is against the guidelines of tripadvisor. I haven't seen also any genuine recommendations about car bookings. You can book with your Hotel. Or with any travel agents of udaipur . Who ever given you rate 2000 for 250 KM is right quote for tour.

Happy touring

I don't think that it will be possible as you will spend your most of the time in shifting from one place to another.
