Jaisalmer to Amritsar

Travel Forums Asia Jaisalmer to Amritsar

Myself and a friend are planning a holiday in north India at the end of Feb. Our current planned route is Delhi - Agra - Jaipur - Udaipur - Jodhpur - Jaisalmer, travelling by train.

Following this we'll have approximately 5 or 6 days before we fly out of Delhi.

I'm keen to visit Amritsar or Shimla but reaching these places seems to involve a lot of train travel and possibly going via Delhi. Certainly visiting both of them seems inplausible.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the "doability" of this last leg of the trip?
Would you recommend visiting Amritsar?
Or any alternative suggestions on the best way to spend a week getting from Jaisalmer to Delhi?

Nancy...I once travelled from Delhi to Jaisalmar by car..It was an amazing journey. It took us 12 hrs to reach Jaisalmar in Rajesthan. I think if you take train it will make you travel for 17 hrs. Amritsar is good. I suggest you to start from Jaisalmar and reach Delhi and then to Amritsar. I think if you get a car/taxi you can finish these plaes in 4-5 days. But make sure you are ready to travel by car.
