How to get from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur

Cities of Rajasthan, the northwestern Indian state, are well connected by means of national highways and rail network. Buses and trains are the main means of transport travellers choose to get from Jaisalmer, the westernmost frontier town of India, to Jodhpur, the Sun City.

As both cities sit in the immediate vicinity of Thar Desert, temperatures can be extreme all year round what means you’d better opt for air-conditioned means of transport to make your travel bearable.

While there are airports in both Jodhpur and Jaisalmer with the latter is operational again after a two-year hiatus, there are no direct flights between the two cities.

What is the distance from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur?

The shortest route connecting Jaisalmer and Jodhpur is via a combination of national highways 11 and 125 – 285 km. Travelling via national highway 11 and state highway 61 is slightly longer – 310 km.

How long does it take to get to Jodhpur from Jaisalmer?

You need six hours in media to get to Jodhpur from Jaisalmer. There is a superfast train which covers the distance in four and a half hours and driving in a private car can take a bit under five hours if you do not stop en route. But if you take a bus or an ordinary fast train, expect to spend between 5 and 7 hours.

What is the best way to travel Jaisalmer–Jodhpur route?

Both buses and trains are totally ok. The choice depends on your budget and flexibility as far as the departure time is concerned.

Trains have fewer departures but are generally more comfortable while buses are cheaper and leave for Jodhpur any time of the day.

If you think of flying, it is definitely not the best way to travel between these destinations. Your options are limited to connecting flights via Ahmedabad or Jaipur – a considerable detour from your route though it will not necessarily make the whole journey longer – but will make it more expensive for sure – than if you travel overland.

How to get from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur by train

What is the price of railway tickets to Jodhpur?

Second and first class air-conditioned berths are available in Ranikhet Express and JSM DLI Express. They normally cost INR1,200-INR1,800.

We recommend travelling in an air-conditioned carriage; even third class will do if you need to save some rupees in your pocket.

Passenger reviews out of total 495 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

Left ajmer with 1 hour delay. This was our 3rd trip with indian railways. Booking with 12go-asia wasthe only and easiest possibillity to get a ticket from abroad india. Everything was ok - but all trains had delay, but thats how it is in india. Live train is a very helpfull app where you see all trains and estimated time of arrival. The trains are rely dirty and the toilets realy very disgusting. But i like to travel with the locals. Its always interresting!

Train was on time seats were comfortable and carriage was in good condition. There was no storage area for our large suitcases but we had empty seats beside us so it was not a problem. I would suggest booking AC2 if you need to have storage for larger items of luggage.

train #15013 1A - AC First Class Sleeper, Indian Railways
★★★☆☆
Was expecting a bit more to be honest for 1st class, cabin had not been cleaned since the last passengers with dirty bedding and rubbish laying around. We were given clean sheets on request and I disposed of the rubbish. We were ticketed to share a cabin with another couple but luckily some other passengers didn’t turn up so we moved to another empty cabin. Toilet paper was present but the toilets stank and “water” everywhere. The main issue was the erratic motion of the train I felt I was being thrown from one end of the bunk to the other, couldn’t really sleep until utter exhaustion set in! It’s is India though and it was very cheap!

★★★☆☆
The train lurched violently from side to side all the way. Definitely not normal. The toilet was cleaner than our previous experience on India Rail but still not great. The train left on time but arrived an hour late at Jodhpur. Once again no list at the station indicating which compartment we were allocated. Just had to guess and move when the conductor eventually came around.
