The ride from Delhi to Jaipur

But if you are going on this trip to Winters than it is going to be a very beautiful journey. Pleasant weather and breeze will make you happy.
From Delhi we went ahead for Gurugram from where our next stop was near Rewari. Gurugram to Rewari is only an hour ride. We had our cup of tea, chilled for a bit, and then again went ahead with all gears on.
From that tea stall we went ahead and only stopped when we reached Jaipur. As our earlier stop was only an hour away but Jaipur from Rewari is very distant. It easily takes around more than 3 hours to reach Jaipur city from Rewari.
We reached the city in the afternoon and went ahead to explore some destinations around. A few of the many places which we visited on our trip from Delhi to Jaipur are.
