-- Jaisalmer, the Desert Rose --

  By : Purva Heda† [on Mon, 14-Mar-2011]    Destination : Jaisalmer Desert
I am a Delhiite and before visiting Jaisalmer in Rajasrthan, I asked a few friends, how to reach there. They told me that I can reach Jaisalmer, by car via Jaipur and Jodhpur. I took this valuable advice and reached Jaisalmer. The first thing I realized about Jaisalmer, after I reached the city is that it is a very clean city. The people there are very helpful. The chances that you will get cheated in Jaisalmer, are very less, as the people are honest. The guides and the shopkeepers wonít fool you. There are also many good hotels which provide decent accommodation. The best time to visit Jaisalmer is during the winter months. The activities to do in Jaisalmer are to visit the fort, go for a camel ride, go in for a desert safari and visit the havelis. The Sam desert safari is an amazing experience. One can indulge in buying bandhni sarees and dress material and articles made out of camel leather. Visiting the Fossil park and the fort will leave a lifelong imprint on your mind, as these are beautiful places. Visiting the sand dunes in the desert is an experience that is simply gorgeous. These sand dunes are located near the Khuri village, which is an hourís drive from Jaisalmer. When we visited the sand dunes in the Thar desert, we spent a long time there. At night the desert sand gets very cold and we had the good fortune of feeling this sand.
