240 kms from Jaipur

Known For : Humayun's Tomb | Hauz Khas Village | Qutub Minar

Delhi, eh? Naam hi kaafi hai! NH 8 was a pleasure to drive through until a few years later. Shoddy maintenance has turned the roads into a virtual nightmare for the commuters. You can choose to proceed via Fatehpur Sikri and Agra instead, for they form a part of the golden triangle circuit in India, and the roads hold forth the promise of being decent. NH 8 has plenty of restaurants serving excellent food along the way. So much so that you might be spoilt for choice. Get going then! After all, 275 Kilometres is by no chance way a very long distance. Is it?

There might not be too many dhabas lining this road, but as it should not take you more than 6 hours to reach your destination, food, for the time being, could take the backseat. You my dear friend be must be at the wheels, meanwhile. Tip: National Highway 79 is the best and the shortest route to reach Udaipur via road. there are other routes as well like the NH 12, but the traffic plying through those can be a bit menacing at times.
