2 days visit to Jaisalmer on 13 & 14 th Nov

Hi, we (3 of us) depart from Jodhpur in the 13th morning by road to Jaisalmer.

We have booked to stay at Hotel Grah Jaisal on the `13th. on the 14th we have booked to stay in a swiss tent at Rawla Resort. We plan to depart for Jodhour by road on 15th morning.

Could you pl suggest an iternery for these days for sightseeing. Also any place to visit between Jodhpur and Jaiselmar?

hi milma

at the frist you choose good palace to stay in town and desert . try to follow programme as Uju told you but for the temple at 3 day i think it is too busy for you because for temple you have to drive 270 km and after again 300 km it is to hard . so i think it is better for you go osia during the way you can go faloudi there is jain temple it is very nice and non touristic also in temple lot of work by glass and also 1 magical light there .

Regards,

hey hiiiiiiiiiiiii

Regarding 3rd day... If you go tanot that will take around 6 to 7hrs. and by run that is 300Kms. So if you go after that to jodhpur that will again take 300Kms and If you feel that is Comfortable for you and your family to drive 600km in a day than you can do that or Skip tanot.
