Following is an itinerary capturing the essentials of a 4 to 5 days road trip from Delhi to Rajasthan:

Day 1 and 2:

To start from New Delhi, take the NH 8 that connects the city to Jaipur via Gurgaon. The road conditions are really nice except for a small patch that is undergoing some renovation as of now. It will take around 3-4 hours for you to reach Jaipur. Once in Jaipur, it will be best to buy a composite ticket for Amber Fort, Jantar-Mantar, Hawa Mahal, Albert Hall (Central Museum), Nahargarh Fortwhich is valid for 2 days. Also, do not miss attractions in Jaipur such as Galtaji Temple and Birla Mandir.

While on a tour of Jaipur, you have to have the popular Pyaaz Kachori and yummy Lassi at the Lassiwala. You can also try Sky Waltz Balloon Safari at Namrata House if you are an adventurous type. You can choose any option out of the many places to stay in Jaipur. For more, check out ixigo's Jaipur Travel Guide

You can also visit Chittorgarh on your way to Jaipur. They are around 309 km away from each other.

Day 3 and 4:

On the third day, you can head for Udaipur (417 km away from Jaipur). Now, essentially you are going to stay in Udaipur for only a day. In that one day, try visiting as many places; some of the interesting ones are City Palace and lakes such as Pichola and Fateh Sagar. You can try boating at Fatehpur Sagar Lake while you are there. Recently started Karni Mata Ropeway is also an interesting thing to do as it give you an aerial view of the bright city with an adrenaline rush. For more, check out the Udaipur travel guide.

On the next day, you can head for a day tour to Ranakpur and Kumbhalgarh. Ranakpur is around 91 km away from Udaipur and then Kumbhalgarh is around 30 km away from there. Do not miss visiting the temples in Ranakpur which are a delight for any traveller. When in Kumbhalgarh, the Kumbhalgarh Fort will welcome you with open arms with an amazing architectural grandeur at display.

Day 5:

On the fifth and final day of your trip, head to Ajmer (271 km away from Udaipur). When here, you cannot miss going to Dargah of Khwaja Muin ud Din Chishti. It is believed that all your wishes come true after you visit this place. Try your luck with that! From here, head to Pushkar (15 km from Ajmer). Temples in Pushkar should be your top priority as those define the place. However, if you are not really into visiting temples, you can experience some natural bliss at Pushkar Lake. If you are traveling in November, you will be the lucky one to be a part of the world famous Camel Fair held every year. For more, check out ixigo's cool Pushkar Travel Guide.

Stay in Pushkar for a night and head for New Delhi in the morning. The distance between Pushkar to Delhi is around 403 km which roughly converts in a 5-6 hour ride. Reach home and relax. You will need it after this long but fulfilling road trip.
