We did all our booking online from redbus.com and Goibibo.com so I think our trip was in budget....
From there, we were taken to Kuldhara - a haunted village near Jaisalmer. It is said that this village comprised of 400 families who deserted their homes one midnight. Kuldhara is a habitual setting for many movies/serials and we were fortunate to see a shoot in progress. From Kuldhara, we proceeded to visit an oasis in the middle of the Thar desert. It is said that this oasis supplies water to 40 villages in the area!
