possibility of a day trip to Kumbalgarh and back to Udaipur

Hi friends/trip advisors

Planning a trip of 2nights & 3daysin the first week of August with friends.Need advice of how to go about with our tour.

Will be starting our journey from Ahmedabad with a hired driver cum vehicle.

In Udaipur want to see the following-

City Palace Museum(light n sound show); Lake Pichola (boat ride); Lake Fateh Sagar(camel ride)Bogare Ki Haveli(puppet show); Saheliyon ki bagh; local market shopping

And visit to the Kumbalgarh Fort

We have short listed three hotel stays-


Now we are confused how to go about...

What time we should leave from ahmedabad? Do we drive straight to Kumbalgarh? How long would the dtive be? How much time should we spend n what time should we start back to reach Udaipur for our night stay.

Or should we go from Ahmedabad reach Udaipur n do Udaipur city sightseeing n then check in later in our hotel?

Waiting anxiously

Thanking in anticipation

My suggestion is you strat from ahmedabad after b-fast and reach udaipur by noon. It is 250 kms and 4 hr drive by car . First, check in at your choice of hotel and have a relaxing lunch and rest . around 3 pm visit saheliyon ki bari, fateh sagar,moti magari and local market at hathipole . Evening 7 pm visit bagore ki haveli for folk dance . Dinner at many lake side restaurants on pichola.

Next day drive to kumbhalgarh and ranakpur temple both can be done in a single day and on same route if you leave early around 8 am you can reach back by 5-30 pm to udaipur than visit the light and sound show at city palace at 7-30 pm

On third moring 9 am visit city palace and boat ride at lake pichola by noon depart for your next destination.

Since you are hiring a vehicle in Ahmedabad, ask that travel agency for advice on drive times, best routes, etc.

Meanwhile, here is my advice. First see this map where the places you want to visit are marked: http://goo.gl/maps/UCzBI

According to me it makes sense to do something like this:

Day 1 - Ahmedabad to Udaipur, boat ride, walk around the streets for shopping, and evening entertainment in Bagore ki haveli

Day 2 - Day excursion to Kumbhalgarh and Ranakpur

Day 3 - Udaipur sightseeing and back to Ahmedabad.
