Next morning, we set out to Jaisalmer after our breakfast. It was 5 hour journey but the roads from Bikaner to Jaisalmer are fine but they were so deserted that it was actually scary to drive alone as a couple. There were very few cars that could be seen on the highway, it was mostly trucks. So if you are on this road make sure you tank up your car with fuel beforehand and avoid travelling in the night. Anyway, we reached Jaisalmer in around 4.5 hours clocking the distance of around 325 kms and there was no tiredness, thanks to good roads.
One noteworthy thing about the highways in Rajasthan is that although you won't get booze on the road but you will find many sign boards as from where to find one and most of them are just 500 metres away from highway as per SC ruling.
We booked Desert Safari for the day by looking at good reviews from the Real Man Desert Safari tour company on the way. Since nothing was planned, we were taking the trip as it comes - booking everything on the way and deciding the itenary. We had our lunch at cafe plus in front of the tour company office. It was nice restaurant with the hippie vibe.
*I don't know how do people get so brilliant ideas to do up their restaurants and that too so cheaply.*
We totally loved the relaxed vibe there and opened a chilled beer with some rajasthani dishes for lunch. After paying up, we left for the desert camp which was further 45-50 kms from Jaisalmer in village called Khuri. The sand dunes near the village are thus called as Khuri sand dunes.
