Good roads except for 25 to 30 km

Nov 7, 2014
Mode of Transport: Car

Travelling by car from Jaipur to Ranthambhore is really a nice experience, except 25-30 km rest of the road was quite good. It took us 3-4 hrs if you don't have break in between. We took break in between for lunch while going from Jaipur to Ranthambhore. If you have your own car then I must suggest to go by car, as it will ease you local site visits there like fort and other sites.

Bad roads so drive safe

Aug 17, 2014
Mode of Transport: Car

We had a self driven car and the journey that we took was on the Kota Road and it takes two hours to reach the place but the roads were inappropriate and broken in trashes, so drive safe. A car is required in this route as you can have problems in local transport and things are wide spread.

Be sure of where you want to stop

Jan 8, 2014
Mode of Transport: Taxi

The road journey to Ranthambore is short but road is bad. almost 50% road is bad.rnMoreover once you leave Jaipur there is no proper hotel for lunch, and one should specially take care of that if you are hiring a taxi. And don't ever stop where the taxi driver wishes because if you do so that will cost you another 20% addition in your bill, weather that is for food or any other shopping. Never stop where your taxi driver says.
