I am back again with another travelogue and this completes my 10th TL on the forum as well. This time I discovered the beautiful city of Udaipur
and forts inKumbhalgarh
The plan to visit Udaipur and Mt. Abu was in plate for last 2 months but for some or other reason it kept getting postponed. Finally in the first week of July it was decided that we would leave for Udaipur in the second week and the dates were finalized. According to the plan we would leave on 13th July
and stay there on 14, 15 and leave back for home on 16th via Chittorgarh
. Initially we were 6 people with 4 days of luggage per person and the car was none other than my DRACO (XUV)
. So I started looking for hotels and attractions to visit. So on 11th I finally thought of booking the hotel but I got a call from one of my cousin and he said that he would love to join as well and 4 other people from the family. So now we were 11 people instead of 6 and hence another car joined us and it was a Ritz Trip Details: Cars:
XUV W8 and Ritz diesel. Total distance:
2000 kms (Moradabad – Delhi – Udaipur – Kumbhalgarh – Udaipur – Chittorgarh – Faridabad – Meerut – Moradabad).
B]Total Fuel:[/B] Approx Rs 6900/- Top Speed:
170 kmph. Max FE attained
: 14.5 kmpl. Total Toll:
1400 /- Route:
We started sharp at 5:30 Am from Moradabad. We were 6 people and 7 seven bags in our XUV. I told everyone to pack their stuff in bags as it will be easier for me to adjust 6 people and 7 bags in the car rather than suitcases. I folded 1 of the last row seat and put all the 7 bags on it and besides that there were 4-5 polythene bags which went behind the other last row seat which was up and in the legroom of the last row seat which was down and below the center seat in the middle row. 4 water bottles, one in each row. And some small coke and sprite cans in the cooling box.
We reached Faridabad around 8:10 am where my cousin was supposed to join me with 4 other people. Somehow he got late and we almost lost 1.30 hour. Meanwhile I got my tank full and Finally we started again around 9:30 am and had to face the morning traffic until we hit he NH 8. I was surprised to see that NH 8 had lot of traffic as well till Manesar. But after Manesar roads started to get empty and DRACO started doing good speeds. We did our lunch around Jaipur and reached Udaipur by 9:00 pm by covering almost 870 kms
. We took around 3 breaks which took near about 2 hours.
