Delhi to Jaisalmer & Jaipur to Varanasi

by kdub33

I need help :) The trains from Delhi to Jaisalmer and from Jaipur to Varanasi are BOOKED...and I hate flying. Does anybody have any suggestions on the next best option to getting to these places? There are 2 of us - we need to leave Delhi on December 26th and arrive in Jaisalmer on the 27th. We then need to leave Jaipur on January 6th and arrive in Varanasi on the 7th. Thanks in advance for your help! Kristina

Book a car ("taxi") with driver. You can't fly to Jaisalmer anyway. We hired a minivan to drive from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer return and it was quite comfortable for 7 of us. Unfortunately I don't know about costs. You could ask VT member rajasthanbycar.

Aha, hm, I wonder who could help you out??? You dont have any friends who did this trip, maybe last summer??? ;-)

What about the bus connection?
Do a stop in beautiful Bikaner, so it is only a 10h ride, also possible overnight. The bus leaves from Serai Khale Khan bus adda in Dheli (UMASHANKER from VT still deserves all the credit for this tip, since the railwy was under construction last time). Take one day to visit the Junagarh Fort and the Karnimata Temple - you dont want to miss the huge rats, do you? And in the evening take the next bus to Jaisalmer (a 7h ride), just in time to arrive in the early morning to witness the magnificent sunrise over the fort! (but avoid getting stuck in the drain with a wheel of the rickshaw in the dark and stepping into a huge fresh piece of cow dung while pushing the rickshaw out of the sh*t, this was no a really romantic start for us - but the sunset was a good compensation ;-)
So all in all you just loose one day, but you earn the BIKANER experience!

If time is the thing you cant afford to loose there is only the plane or a hired car rallying down to the desert juwel of Jaisalmer...

Happy travels - you will love it!

Ok, the Varanasi part is more tricky, since if the train really is booked out you have a problem on this long route...you could split it into parts like taking bus to Agra - your friend wanted to see the Taj, right? And try the train again from there? Just an idea.

When there is no necessity to change it is necessary not change-J.F.Kenedy

When all the North India is under cold wave and due to fog trains and flights are delayed, why try other options. It is good that you have already booked your train tickets, enjoy your journey as planned by you. Road journey is a bit risky due to fog and trains are relatively safer. This problem of fog happens each year in North India around Christmas and New Year. Yes, break journey is possible if you wish to see Agra as suggested by Chris.
Best wishes

Travel Tips for New Delhi

Buy a God Ganesh

by l_joo about Buy a God Ganesh

Little God Ganesh can be found in the street outside the main railway station of Paharganj. The exact location is right outside the railway station, the God makers would display all the clay works there on street. Selling at very low price, unbelievable yet very skillful works by them. I grabbed nearly 10 pieces for just 140 Rupees. Tourists when come to Paharganj, please don't miss this one, absolutely local crafts. I like it so much.

Typical North Indian Tandoori!

by intencity about Kake da Dhaba

The Indian food tends to be a bit spicy (at one point of time, the spices from India were exported to all over the world, I donot know if its still the same!) Try the Punjabi non-veg dishes at “Kake da Dhaba”, Connaught place, purrrfect north-indian fare, which could be a little greasy and spicy, but nevertheless its great stuff!
Remember : Most restaurants shut by midnight. Some restaurants will accept credit cards. 10% of the bill value is acceptable as a tip. Dahi meat--- a plate of meat cooked with curd.

Jantar Mantar

by Willettsworld

Located about 250 meters south of Connaught Place, Jantar Mantar is one of the world's oldest astronomical observatories. Maharaja Jai Singh II of Jaipur (1699-1743) built this collection of salmon-colored structures after studying Hindu, and Muslim astronomical works. The observatory gives a good insight into the technological innovations of the time and is an integral part of India's scientific heritage. According to Sayyid Ahmad Khan, the author of Athar-us-Sanadid, the construction was completed in 1724. Since Jai Singh himself mentioned that he built the instruments by the order of the emperor Muhammad Shah, who ascended the throne only in 1719, the date of Sayyid Ahmad Khan appears to be authentic.

The Jantar Mantar Observatory contains six instruments. The most important or the 'Supreme Instrument' in Jantar Mantar is the Samrat-Yantra, the huge sundial. There are signs beside each instrument explaining how it works.

Open: Sunrise to Sunset everyday. Admission: Rs100 for foreigners.

Sansad Bhavan

by SmileyLeSa

Sansad Bhavan is the parliament house. The building itself is not as impressive as the rest of the government buildings along Raisina Hill. However, its unique circular design is definitely eye-catching.

Lodi Gardens - Athpula Bridge

by MM212

This 17th century bridge is located within Lodi Gardens. Its name, Athpula, means "eight piered" after the eight piers that support it between its seven pointed arches. It was once used by local villagers to cross a river, but nowadays it is merely decorative over a pond within the beautifully landscaped Lodi Gardens.
