Overview

Rajasthan holds within itself many wonders for tourists to behold including beautiful palaces, an abundance of culture and history and delightful food. Yet the city of Jaisalmer, situated amidst the sands, offers an even more unique take on life in Rajasthan. Along with the history and architecture, this is where true life in the desert can be observed in India. As such, many travellers visit the Golden city from across the country. The city of Ahmedabad in the neighbouring state of Gujarat is no exception and how to reach Jaisalmer from Ahmedabad is something people thus need to know.

Ahmedabad To Jaisalmer By Air: Though Ahmedabad does boast a commercial airport, Jaisalmer does not. The airport nearest to Jaisalmer is the Jodhpur airport, still about 290 kms from the city. There are flights available from Ahmedabad to Jodhpur, however these are mostly 1 stop flights.

Ahmedabad To Jaisalmer By Train: There is 1 train that directly connects Ahmedabad to Jaisalmer but this is a long journey. It must be said however, that this journey can be fairly comfortable. There are also trains going through other cities in Rajasthan to Jaisalmer but they are more time consuming than this, which takes about 16 hours.

Ahmedabad To Jaisalmer By Road: The 535 km journey between Ahmedabad and Jaisalmer takes a little over 9 and a half hours to complete by road. There are buses available for this journey but they take slightly longer than going by car. Going through Palanpur and Barmer, this can be an excellent road trip for those looking to visit Jaisalmer from Ahmedabad.
