How To Reach Jaisalmer

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

Wondering how to reach Jaisalmer by air? The Golden City currently does not have an airport that civilian flights land at and therefore is not directly accessible by air. The nearest airport is Jodhpur Airport, which is well connected to the other major airports in the country. Reaching Jaisalmer directly from Jodhpur airport involves getting a cab from the airport itself. Travelers can either get a private or prepaid cab. They are available but are fairly expensive as it’s a 5-6 hour journey by road.<readmore> The nearest international airport is Delhi which is connected to most of the countries in the world. Flights from important Indian cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Chennai to Jodhpur are quite frequent as well.

By Train

Jaisalmer is well connected to most of the cities by train and there are multiple options for travelers traveling from anywhere in India. There are direct trains going to Jaisalmer or passing through Jaisalmer from cities like Jodhpur, Jaipur, Delhi, Mumbai, and even Kolkata among many others. There are three trains that travel daily between Jodhpur and Jaisalmer, for those looking to travel within Rajasthan. There are also 4 trains that travel from Delhi straight to Jaisalmer, with two leaving every day and one being a superfast train.<readmore> In terms of trains, there is also the luxury Palace on Wheels experience that begins in Delhi before going through the important cities of Rajasthan, including Jaisalmer.

By Road

There are two options when going to Jaisalmer by road, one is by bus and the other is to drive yourself. Bus services to Jaisalmer are available from all major cities in Rajasthan like Jodhpur and Jaipur. There are no direct buses from Delhi but you can switch buses in Jaipur and continue your journey from there to reach Jaisalmer from Delhi. The distance from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer by road can be covered in 6 to 7 hours. It may take up to 15 hours to travel from Delhi to Jaisalmer via cab.

 

The other option is to drive to Jaisalmer and it’s probably a good idea to stop at Jaipur or Ajmer on the way. The distances from some of the cities to Jaisalmer are Jodhpur - 235 kilometers, Jaipur - 559 kilometers, Delhi - 768 kilometers, Mumbai - 1065 kilometers. Driving from Jaipur and Jodhpur is fine but coming all the way from Delhi and Mumbai is only recommended for seasoned drivers or riders as this is a long road.

 

Being the shorter trip of the two, while coming from Delhi, it is a good idea to take a halt in either Ajmer or Jodhpur as these lie somewhere in the middle of the route.<readmore> While coming from Mumbai, there are two routes available. Both routes are the same till Vadodara, then the more common, the shorter route goes by Gandhinagar and straight through Palanpur and Barmer. The slightly longer route is going via Jodhpur which is ideal if travelers want to pass through and spend some time in another of Rajasthan’s wonderful cities.

      The trip was very good. But we were not that comfortable with our driver. We felt he was not that supportive in what we were interested in! He refused to take us to the place which we asked him to take. Hence was not that happy with our Driver but the beauty of Rajasthan made us to overpass ! We had a great trip to Rajasthan, it was one of our best trip. No words to describe the beauty of Rajasthan. Thanks to Carlo travels for making our trip the memorable one.

    FAQ's of Jaisalmer

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    The Desert Festival takes place in Jaisalmer's sand dunes every year in the month of February 3 days before the full moon. It is celebrated in remembrance of a prophecy having come true with the establishment of the kingdom of Rawal Jaiswal in the 12th Century. It is a festival full of color with a lot of different camel related activities like camel polo and camel races taking place among other activities. It lasts for three days.  

     

    Backpacking budgets are usually not that large as convenience gives way to luxury. Jaisalmer has a number of hostels available with beds on rent for people to stay starting as low as Rs. 300 a night. The cost of the sightseeing and relatively cheap food combined, a backpacker can see everything that Jaisalmer has to offer in roughly Rs. 2000- Rs. 2500.

     Jaisalmer has an abundance of temples that are fairly ancient and known fo their carvings and sculptures. It is home to the very big Jain temples constructed in the 12th century. Also famous is the Tanot Mata temple, some 2 hours away, which is unique as it is said that during the 1965 war with Pakistan, enemy troops dropped a number of bombs on the temple yet all of them missed the target.

    Jaisalmer has a number of luxury options to offer tourists looking to have a really special experience. There a fw 5 star hotels and resorts in and around Jaisalmer. There is also The Serai Luxury Desert Camp among the dunes with all the luxuries that one can imagine. The Palace on Wheels Rajasthan tour also spends a day in Jaisalmer.

    The best way to reach Jaisalmer is by train, as the train station is connected to most major cities in the country. The airport in Jaisalmer is a military airport and thus only accepts chartered flights. If coming by air, the closest airport is in Jodhpur from where you can take a cab. If driving from Delhi, taking a stop in Jaipur or Ajmer is recommended.
