Khuri 1/undefined by Tripoto


The first rays of the sun in the morning begin an enthralling melody at the desert village of Khuri. The sun-kissed sand dunes of Khuri is a great alternative to the Sam Sand Dunes if one is looking for a pleasant and peaceful ambience without much rush. Khuri is also a good place for bird enthusiasts to see the Great Indian Bustard or the Demoiselle Crane. Apart from camel rides in the desert, camel races and camel polo is also organised on the request of visitors. In the evening, one can simply spend their time idly, appreciating the splendour of the desert. A typical evening in the village of Khuri should be spent indulging in the enriching Kalbeliya dance and folk music. The fine experience will keep you seated by the bonfire and gorge on Rajasthani delicacies throughout the night. Another option is to spend the night in the middle of the desert. Nothing is more magical than gazing at the countless stars on a dark and clear night.

A walk through KhuriWhizzing past the golden city, my guide and I took off in a jeep to reach the point from where our camel ride began. On our way, as we travelled through the interiors of Rajasthan I realised that there is another India that exists, which is neither posh nor polished but a one that’s craving for basic necessities of life. There exists a different world within the desert and no one here is bothered about what is happening on the world outside theirs. The most treasured gem for the villagers here is water and a walk of 5-6 kms everyday is what it demands from them!

The desert camping at night with the camel safari was one of my favorite thing that I have done so far .

Go back in time and live the desert life- complete with camel rides through the day, camping out under the stars or a lovely home stay at night. If you’re lucky, at night you can get a view of the entire Milky Way.
