How it’s Like to Extend 3 Days Jodhpur Trip to 7 Days

This post was recently updated on May 20th, 2021

Reading Time: 5 minutes

I extended my Jodhpur Trip to 7 days instead of the 3 days that were outlined initially.

I can’t recall any place where I actually end up extending the days. The first 3 days in the Jodhpur trip were phenomenal, and that’s the main reason. I am moderately sure that it might be the same in your case for stretching a trip as well?

All the planned things went upside down before things happened at night that started changing my mind.

Just
Just Wait

I will be sharing what occurred that somehow made me extend the Jodhpur trip inside the post. Just keep reading not for the sake of reading but to have time well spent and obtaining insight.

Thank you for being here.

Let’s commence the Jodhpur Trip.

I was back in Rajasthan after almost 4 years of gap. To be honest, I overlooked the state whenever I was considering exploring and creating.

But a Solo trip to Jodhpur had realized me that there’s also a world other than mountains.

Delhi to Jodhpur Bus

There are several things that I was undergoing first time on the Jodhpur Trip. 

Traveling from Delhi to Jodhpur on a sleeper bus would be counted amongst an unusual thing. 

The sleeper buses will cost you between Rs.800 – Rs.1200 per person.

There is also the semi-sleepers buses that apparently cost a little less compared to the sleeper. 

A happy night’s sleep will make you wake up in Jodhpur in the morning.

Delhi to Jodhpur distance is 615 km, and the bus journey takes around 12-13 hrs of laidback travel. 

Since this was my first time traveling in a sleeper bus. I was pleased to see a comfortable sleeping bed. Just like I found a water well in the middle of the desert.

Keeping Joke Apart!

Best Season to Plan a Jodhpur Tour

I visited Jodhpur in February, and the daily weather was pretty acceptable in terms of exploring outside.

If you are not a fan of exploring hot places during summers, I assume you are not. Then, exploring Jodhpur in the winter season would preferably consider as the best to explore both throughout the daytime and nighttime.

The weather during this period is highly praised, to roam the streets, appreciate the forts, temples, and other such places to see in Jodhpur.

Where to Sojourn in Jodhpur?

A Suggestion from my side –

Choose a hotel/hostel closer to Ghanta Ghar (Clock Tower). Because whether it’s a blue city walk or a Mehrangarh Fort visit, all the happenings around the area are pretty striking.

I had suggested simply for the sake of being convenient and rest you can decide, therefore.

Just for knowledge, you can also visit Ghanta Ghar. It is in the shape of a tall minaret present right in the center of the Sardar Market. The Clock tower entry fee is Rs. 25 per person. It remains closed on Saturday, and the rest all the days are opened. 

How it’s Like to Extend 3 Days Jodhpur Trip

If you are mapping for 2 days Jodhpur trip then, I had compiled an article on 48hrs in Jodhpur Blue City.

I firmly believe that when you start exploring, you would definitely love the happenings around you. This will urge you that you shouldn’t leave anything unexplored from your end.

My very first day gave me the feeling that I might end up extending this trip.

Disclosure of – 

All the planned things went upside down before things happened that night.

On the night of the first day, I instantly connected with other solo travelers exploring Jodhpur.

We joined other travelers, sat and talked for hours, and had dinner together. 

I got a feeling of connection spontaneously that somehow takes time in my case. This was also among the unusual thing that was happening almost the first time.

Yeah, you got it. That immediate connection is more than sufficient to stretch the 3 days trip to 7 days.

But the first-day connection wasn’t enough alone that will make me stretch my days.

Then, the next day we went to the blue city street photography walk. The day was joyful. On alternate days, we headed to different places to see Sunset in Jodhpur.

While the day progressed towards the end,

My mind becomes confident enough that I will be extending my Jodhpur trip.

Sometimes, you just require someone or even a small section that makes your day.

Have you ever thought about this?

I believe that you understood what I was trying to tell.

Extending a trip for me means that I had enjoyed the time more than was expected. 

When you began exploring the streets, I assume that the Jodhpur streets are more than enough to give you a thirst for exploring the farthest possible on foot.

Thoughts Summing Up in Few Lines

How could I be still awake?
I am a person who sleeps at around 8.

I suppose a desire to explore,
Then, what else I want more.

The truth is that I am still awake,
Roaming the streets till late.

I need to return,
To the place I sojourn

But these nights won’t come again?
There’s only me to blame.

Come on!
I need to be awake
To explore till late

The time is ticking fast
I don’t know where the journey will last.

I need to be awake
Because I want to explore till late.

How to Commute Around in Jodhpur

You can easily find shared Auto’s and Battery Rickshaws that will take you to your favored location.

If you fancy exploring while sitting on a tanga, that could also be done. The minimum charge of Tanga is Rs.100 per person. 

By far, shared Auto’s will work wonders for you when choosing long-distance travel. 

Rest you can choose to walk when exploring nearby or short spans.

After all, the best is seen when explored on foot.

Is it really worth Extending your days in Jodhpur?

It depends upon your purpose to visit Jodhpur.

A Purpose in life to go someplace answers everything. 

For e.x.- Your purpose can be to explore Jodhpur. It can be for leisure, work, etc.

If you decide the direction right when you are planning for the Jodhpur trip, then the chances of losing your way become less.

In simple terms, it’s worth extending your Jodhpur trip keeping aside whatsoever your purpose is!

Conclusion

Jodhpur had just discovered you.
