Getting to/from Jaisalmer

How is the night train from Delhi to Jaisalmer?

How are the roads between Delhi and Jaisalmer?

Does Jaisalmer have an airport yet, and if so, what cities have flights there?

Thanks

There is over night train and by road quite far

in both cities different is 800+kilometres.

By flight you can fly Delhi to jodhpur and jodhpur to by road to jaisalmer. Jodhpur to jaisalmer is 280 kilometres and its take 5hrs.

Hope its help you.

Cheers

There is no airport in Jaisalmer, the nearest airport is at Jodhpur which is around 5-6 hours drive away.

Night trains are the best options from Delhi to Jaisalmer. It is also safe, you can book tickets in 1st AC or 2nd AC or 3rd AC

Also the roads are good but if you travel to Delhi to Jaisalmer by road then it will be a15-16 hours drive which will be very hectic

Yes, 14-15 hours on the road, even with stops seems quite tedious; and flying to Jodhphur and going from there is problematic because you have to turn around and go back. I am leaning towards the train. Thanks for the input.
