Ship of the Desert - Camel

Well, the National Research Centre for Camel at village Jorbeer is one of the destinations one should not miss when travelling to Bikaner. In fact, visit the Karni Mata Temple in Deshnoke and proceed to this place. The visiting hours are in the late afternoon so plan accordingly.This place houses a museum on camels, camels of different breeds - both adult and calves, camel ride, camel milk products and leather/hair products besides the research centre. More of an educational destination with some fun thrown in for those who take interest in animals.I have had an unpleasant experience with camel milk in one of my trips to Salasar, so refrain from any indulgence in its milk & its products. But this in no way should deter you from trying it out. In fact most people seem to relish them, especially the kulfi.It was fun watching the huge number of camels in a place. Pretty quiet and peaceful lot. There was a separate enclosure for the males, females and calves while the aggressive and sick have special enclosures. There are guides to show you around though I think they need to share and show more for what they charge.The centre maintains 300+ genetically improved elite camels comprising of Bikaneri, Jaisalmeri, Mewari, Kachchhi and some cross breeds. Besides the research work on camel improvement they also have the facility of animal husbandry, popularizing of camel milk and its products, etc.We did a short camel ride within the campus. Even though this was my third camel ride I remained all tense during the rid. The museum updates one on the developmental and research aspects of the camel in the desert ecosystem. It is not a well developed museum hence there is a scope for improvement to make it interesting.You can shop for camel leather jootis (like mule footwear), camel hair stole, camel hair and silk shawl. Other things one can buy are decors made of camel bone / teeth, bags/wallets made of camel leather, etc. There is not much variety but sufficient enough for souvenir shopping.

Cool place

The camel breeding farm is the first in Asia. It's 10 km from station.. One can go on a camel ride. Timings from 3 to 6... Camel leather articles sold here are quite reasonable.. Can get a discount too.. Camel milk kulfi - one must not miss here.. One can see many camels here young and old.. We also saw an ostrich.. A cool and quiet place..

Eye full of Camels in a place

It is a very good place for both children as well as elders. Seeing more than 500 camels at a single place. You can even taste camel milk over there, you can even see Mr Bikaner (Camel ).

Camels are the main attraction

Good place to visit if you have kids and if they like watching the camels. There are different variety of camels and its nice watching the baby camels and knowing about the different breeds and watching so many camels at a time. Its the only place of its kind in entire Asia so that is a nice thing to know. However, apart from watching the camels there is nothing to do. There was a camel museum, one camel handicraft product shop and one shop for camel milk products.
