"Bike Ride to the beautifully harsh desert."

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Oct 26, 2017
We visited Jaisalmer on February 18th 2017. As we reached the Jaisalmer via Ranikhet Express, in the mid night, we were attacked by brokers of the hotels and tour guides. Most of them were offering palace view hotels. Price of the hotel started from 300Rs onwards. (For 4 adults)
That was dirty cheap( and awkward too) !!
As we selected one broker, he took us to the hotel. On the way Golden Fort was a delight to watch. (A must do in the mid-night Jaisalmer).
We were provided touring packages at the hotel which started from 1800Rs omwards(thats the pick) including the desert Safari, Camel Ride, night Stay in the Camps at he Sam Tonsorial desert).
Next day we checked out to visited Tanont Temple via spruced at 120Rs one way). The bus started the journey at 4:30PM and reached at 7:30PM). Solider provides the meals, rest place, washrooms etc. After the morning Arti the bus started its return journey.
Street foods near Golden Fort such as sabji-kachodi, bati chokha. Near by you can rent bikes. We rented 2 Royal Enfields Classic 350 (at 800Rs each) to visit Sam Dunes. Most memorable Sunsets can be seen at the Sam Dunes.
If you are dreaming of a bike trip to Rajasthan, Jaisalmer (Sam Dunes) is a must visit.

"Chilly Adventures."

  • Posted Oct 24, 2017
Visited the deserts of Jaisalmer in Dec'16. The camel rides in the vast desert were the ones to look out for the most. Chilly air, typical rajasthani cuisine, melodious folklore and lots of sand made the camel rides memorable. The sunset at the end of the camel ride was to die for. As the amazing sun set down the sand dunes, it felt amazing. We stayed in tents that were very well equipped with all the modern amenities. Jaisamlmer was surely a surreal experience.

"Jaisalmer -Fort City"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 24, 2017
City revolves around Fort.
Guides may fool you be aware.
Most of guides are drunk.
Small lanes.
Sam sand dunes must.
Paragliding is fun for kids do it when wind is there or else you won't get higher elevation.
Roads are good.
Visit military museum.
Stay in desert must.

"Winds howling through the golden fortress."

  • Posted Oct 23, 2017
Stunning city. We stayed within the fortress which was magical. It was funny to come across signs every two seconds offering 'free WiFi and best views'. Due to weather conditions we couldn't stay in the desert but we really wanted to. Do ensure you go at the right time of the year. Food is amazing, with comatose Dale bati, and Laval maas for meat eaters. Loved it overall.
