From Jodhpur to Jaisalmer is approx 300 Km and took us about 4 hours to reach. En-route, we saw peacocks, nilgais, deers, roaming freely in the fields, which was simply fascinating for us, living in towns. We had our breakfast in a roadside dhaba in Barmer, which was pleasantly good and an enjoyable one.

Road journey was comfortable as the roads were wide 7 properly aligned in a very good traveling condition. We liked this the most. When one is travelling by road they can enjoy the local environment, see local culture, & vegetation growing in Thar desert, good work by desert Conservation department.
