In local bus via Jaipur:
  

- In Delhi, go to the bus station called " BIKANER HOUSE", near India Gate. This bus station is rather quiet and only for DELUXE and AC buses going to Jaipur. There are numerous buses (at least every hour). Once at the station, you can buy your tickets (number of seat written on the ticket. So no problem of having a seat once on the bus). Buses are confortable. It takes around 6 hours from Delhi to Jaipur with a 20 mn stop at midway.
- Once in Jaipur, you should get down only at the final stop, (not before), which is the bus station of Jaipur called  " Sindhi Camp". The bus usually arrives platform 3. 
- Then, you just change the platform and go to platform n°. 4.  Look for the place where to buy your ticket and ask the next DIRECT bus to Nawalgarh. Numerous buses (almost every 30 mn).  Count on a 3h to 3h30 drive. There are no deluxe buses between jaipur and Nawalgarh.
