On the road update Udaipur- Jaipur- New Delhi
26th March 2013 : Udaipur to Delhi
Today was the last day of the trip and pretty much a non eventful day, I was seriously hoping it to be one. Last year when I was driving back to Delhi from Udaipur I had a tyre burst on my vehicle just after crossing Bhilwara. You can read about it here.
We checked out of the hotel and were on our way at 10 minutes to 9AM. After having a heavy breakfast we drove pretty much non stop all the way upto Dharuhera where we halted for lunch for some awesome food at the OLD RAO Dhabha. Just like the numerous Puran Singh ka Dhabha’s at Ambala there are ‘n number of Rao Dhabha’s at this stretch. Only those who know that which one is the original will appreciate the food for what it is, the other outlets are just copy cats. Location of Rao Hotel on Google Maps.
Having made up good time from Udaipur to Jaipur I decided to brave the infamous Delhi- Jaipur stretch. I would say that I was pretty lucky here. We were at the Chandrawaji(end of the Jaipur Bypass) at 1442 Hrs and reached Rao Hotel, Dharuhera at 1654 HRS, covering 152 Kms in 2Hrs & 12 Mins. Average Speed 69.09 KMPH. Leaving this place at approx 530Pm the traffic was pretty much what one would expect from Manesar to Delhi and finally made it home at 6.30PM. Total distance for the day was 676 Kms in 9Hrs 40 Mins.
Will start the travelogue soon, once I’ve sorted out the pictres.
Cheers and thanks for tuning in.
