3 Fascinating Routes for Your Road Trip From Delhi To Jaipur

For the people of Delhi, Jaipur has always been a favourite holiday destination. Whether it is for the weekend or even a whole week, Delhiites love travelling to the Pink City. 

There is so much to do and see in Jaipur, from the Hawa Mahal to the Jantar Mantar, it’s a great place to have a vehicle. So we suggest you drive down, rather than take the train or fly to Jaipur from Delhi. If you are considering this, here are three routes to go from Delhi to Jaipur by road.

Best Time To Visit

Summers are a complete no-no, as the climate it too hot to venture out. The monsoons are equally bad. The best time to visit Jaipur is from October to March when the climate is cool, so exploring the outdoors is fabulous.

How to Get There

While most people prefer flying down or going by train, motorists and hardcore travel enthusiasts always prefer driving down. Another option one has is to take a bus, but this journey is often uncomfortable. The Delhi to Jaipur route has seen many transformations. From a single, two-way lane to six lanes, the roads have gotten wider and better. The drive is pretty comfortable provided you have experience of driving on highways.
