Best time to take Jaipur to Jodhpur Road Trip

October to March is preferably the best time to take Jaipur to Jodhpur Road trip.

The pleasant wintery ambiance in these months helps to tick off all the bucket list items.

During winters the temperature in these regions, the mercury can go as low as 7 degrees Celsius and doesn’t rise above 25 degrees.

This makes this time perfect for sightseeing and other recreational activities.

However, if you are a solo or budget traveler, we would recommend the monsoon months (July- Sept) as the region doesn’t receive moderate rainfall during this time.

Planning on visiting Rajasthan this summer?

Well, then let us tell you that the summers in Jodhpur are dry with high temperatures. If you can handle the heat then one thing is for sure that tiger spotting won’t be a problem.

What are some tips for Jaipur to Jodhpur Road trip?

Here are a few tips:

While Planning the road trip. 

ladies

  1. Destinations on our suggested road trip can be covered both on cars and bikes both, depending upon what you prefer. If in case you are high on budget you should book an RV to make this trip more memorable.
  2. If you are travelling in the peak season, make sure you make the booking at least 2-3 months prior to your visit. To be honest we would suggest you to travel during the off-season to go a little easier on your pockets for food and lodging both. Also make sure it has parking as well.
  3. Make full use of Google maps to find the phone number of mechanics before you start your journey. Maintain a hard copy of this list in case of any emergency. You can also make another list of the phone numbers of hospitals as well.
  4. Pack all the essentials along with a checklist for that particular season. Don’t forget that Rajasthan is the master of extreme climates, so, be prepared for what is to come.

On-road tips:

two lady

  1. Make sure you have your tank full before starting with the day. Although petrol pumps are graciously sprinkled all over Rajasthan, there can be times when you’ll not be able to find one especially while traveling to rural areas.
  2. As delectable as the cuisine is in Rajasthan, you may find it a little greasy and stomach-churning. Make sure you carry antacids with you to help you fight it.
  3. Keep a handsome amount of cash with you and preferably change.
  4. In Rajasthan, GPS won’t always be your friend. Sometimes, in order to avoid congestion, the GPS will take you from a different route which can either be longer or more problematic. And, losing signals and ending on a narrow street are two of its major downsides. So make sure you have a hard copy of your map and route.
  5. Treat everyone with a smile and “Khamba Ghani” which means “hello”.

Tips for your health:

lady

  1. Stay hydrated. Drinking ample water should be your priority in Rajasthan. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be environmentally friendly. Pack a hydrating flask with you as an accessory and keep on filling at the local shacks.

              On a side note: water in Rajasthan is a little sweet. You’ll get used to it.

            2.Traveling in the summer? Then,consume a lot of salt. That’s because the body loses a lot of                           potassium and sodium while sweating. It can decrease your water retention capacity and harm you in the long run.
