Bus Service from Pushkar to Bundi
I had a plan to visit Bundi by bus and the question was whether there is any bus from Pushkar or not. I question a friend at Pushkar and later went to Ajmer Bus Depot inquiry counter to know the answer.
Yes there is a bus (maybe only one bus service) for Bundi from Marwar Bus Stand, Pushkar at 11:30 am. Better would be to reach Ajmer because there are many buses for Bundi from Ajmer bus depot. The first bus is at 4:45 am and the fare is Rs. 126/-.
Other than Bundi from Ajmer bus depot there are buses for Jaipur, Agra, Delhi, Churu, Makrana, Sikar, Sawai Madhopur, Kota, Gwalior, Bhopal, Ujjain, Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, Banswara, Udaipur, Ahmedabad, Merta, Abu Road, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Bikaner, Haridwar etc.
Pushkar to Bundi is 189 km approx.
Pushkar > Ajmer Railway Station ( 14 km ) > Nasirabad ( 21 km ) > National Highway 79 ( 5 km )
Cross NH 79 and follow State Highway 26. A board display the direction for Kota. Bundi is before Kota.
National Highway 79 > Sarwar ( 37 km ) > Kekri ( 17 km ) > Sawar ( 27 km ) > Banas River ( 10 km ) > National Highway 12 ( 10 km )
State Highway 26 Ends and National Highway 12 Starts
National Highway 12 > Pech Ki Baori ( 15 km ) > Bundi ( 33 km )
Instead of journey by bus I started journey solo by Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorbike from Pushkar at 8: 10 morning hours reached Bundi 14:00 afternoon hours i.e., almost 6 hours.
In between the journey I stop at Kota Road, Kekri for tea just before Hindustan Repairing Works (left hand side). Kaluram shop owner is fantastic with tea making I have to say. If you are passing through the same road-route you should stop. I had two cups of tea. And yes also a stop for petrol to fill the petrol tank full.
Regarding road condition SH 26 is good till Kekri. Later road widening work is in progress specially National Highway 12. The best about the journey was stopping at bridge over Banas river to watch the wide and lengthy river flowing.
Pushkar to Jodhpur via Merta City is 175 km approx.
Pushkar > Padu Kalan ( 36 km ) > Merta City ( 22 km ) > Indawar ( 17 km ) > Bitan ( 13 km ) > Borunda ( 5 km ) > Gadsuriya ( 10 km ) > Pipar City ( 23 km ) > Jodhpur ( 49 km )
