Camping in the Thar desert is a must-have experience especially with your girlfriends. It changes your perspective towards life and will easily be one of the best travel experiences you will ever have! Here's everything you need to know to plan a trip with your girls.
Head to Jaisalmer by road and pre-book the camping experience with a tour operator. You'll definitely need a guide to navigate through the wilderness of the Thar and get lost, literally! We went with a set of operators called Desert Boys Dhani which is a restaurant but also the starting point for the camping expedition.
You'll need to report at 3 pm with everything you need for the night. I recommend packing light, keeping only essentials and thermals because you're guaranteed to freeze through the night!
The experience immediately begins as you hop into the jeep and begin a drive towards the desert. You'll slowly notice the surroundings change from a city of sandstone to open landscape with cattle, goats and village-folk heading back home for the night.
