It was informed that 75 percent of the total 875 km long track of this project i.e. 657 km track, will come up in Rajasthan. This trek will pass through seven of the state' districts - Alwar, Jaipur, Ajmer, Bhilwara, Chittorgarh, Udaipur and Dungarpur. Udaipur district will have total 127 km of the track.
