    How to reach?

    By Road

    Jaipur is one of the most popular weekend getaways from Delhi and is therefore has excellent bus services from the capital. Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation (RSRTC) runs buses every 30 minutes from both the cities as do several private operators. The road is smooth and the air-conditioned Volvo buses are well-maintained. It takes anywhere between 6-7 hours to travel the distance. If you can afford it, consider taking the Volvo buses (which will set you back anywhere between Rs 600 to Rs 800) since they take the toll roads and have better shock absorbers. Besides New Delhi, RSRTC also runs buses from Jaipur's Inter State Bus Terminus to Himachal Pradesh, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, and Gujarat. Being the capital of Rajasthan, all major cities and towns are connected by express buses to Jaipur.
