Will be landing Udaipur on 30th of Nov in morning.
Places of Intreset- Udaipur,Nathdwara,Ranakpur,Mount Abu and Kumbalgarh.
We are college friends and is our last trip of long 5 yrs journey.So want 2 enjoy and explore maximum out of the tour.
After long discussion we have settled on Udaipur and Nathdwara.
But want 2 add one more to make a complete treat, for which i am too little confused among RanakPur, Kumbalgarh and Mount Abu,:-( Plz suggest the Itineray.
One more thing...
In Rajasthan there are elections on 1st of Dec..So will it be fine to tour at this time?.we will be travelling by private and local buses.
Also, the main spots and palaces will be open on the day of elections?..Like City Palace's Music and Light Show in the evening, Dance show at Bagore ki Haveli are the main theme of attractions.
M worried ,as is my last tour with college friends. Plz Suggest.
Thanks in anticipation.
Hi there, I'm an Australian photographer who's just arrived in Udaipur to do a photography project with some nearby villages. The project is great and the locals helping me are very generous and friendly, but I'd love to occasionally get out and hang out with other travelers and see some beautiful places now and then for my own sanity!
Also anyone recommend any art classes? Anyone volunteered at the animal shelter?
So anyway drop me a line if you're in Udaipur too and would have similar interests... some of the photos from the project are here -> portraitsofwater.wordpress.c...;
I'm here until 19th sept.
freqently i visit nathdwara.i want to visit abu mount in dec.how can i travell from nathdwara to abu?is it a1 day trip?
I would like to get your opinions on something. My family owns one of the oldest mines in Rajasthan, one of the best soapstone and dolomite mines. Recently we were thinking about opening it to tourists who are interested, as it as a really unique experience. It has never been opened to anyone except for select family before.
It is an established mines, a hundred years old, and picture perfect. There are over 400 people working there, and not one fatality since it started ! It has also won the National Mines Safety Award by the now former President (Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam).
I wanted to know if tourists would be interested to see and experience our mines for a small fee, just to cover our expenses for providing you with a local guide to show you around.
It really is a very different experience, seeing the vast pits unfold before your eyes, hundreds of metres wide, and the way open pit mining is done. The way the mills work, blowing particles of stone to a fine talcum powder. Add a bit of perfume to that, and you have yourself some body powder that you use daily ! Rajasthan is famous for it !
It is away from the city, 7 kilometres before Nathdwara, and easily accesible by car.
Anyone who visits will also be provided with a free sample of the materials we mine ! :)

We are visiting in October and are scheduled to travel from Jaipur to Udaipur on a Sunday. Are there any direct flights from Jaipur to Udaipur on that day? Several sites on the internet give Jetair flight 9W709 or 9W2207 as leaving at 0700hrs and arriving at 0745hrs but I am unable to find the Jetair site at which I can book. All the search engines fail to find this flight but come up with flights via Delhi of Mumbai, typically with waits between flights of between 4 and 7 hours. Does anybody know whether Jetair flight 9W709 or 9W2207 actually exists and if so how can I book onto it? Failing that, is there a train between the 2 cities which doesn't go overnight?
Travel by road, I'm afraid, is for various reasons ruled out.
Many thanks for any help.
