Jodhpur
Best time to visit - January,February,September,October,November,December
Popular, colourful and culturally rich, Jodhpur is one of Rajasthan's most beautiful cities. It is also known as the Sun City of India and is said to have been built in the 15th century by a Rao Jodha. This city was earlier known as Marwar and is currently the second largest city of Rajasthan. From the stunning Mehrangarh Fort (from where you can see the stunning blue city), Umaid Bhavan Palace to the bustling Sardar Market, there is tons to do and explore in this touristy city. If you like your holidays to be quiet and laidback, Jodhpur may not be for you – atleast for the first couple of days. There is too much to keep you busy. Like almost all cities in Rajasthan, there are historical forts and palaces to explore and admire. Do carry a scarf and water for your afternoon expeditions should the heat tire you out. There are also umpteen restaurants and small cafes in Jodhpur which offer you delicious food and are also very welcoming. Jodhpur is also a great place to meet like-minded travellers. Jodhpur is well connected to all the major cities of the country via rail, road and air.

About Sam

This day was a relief as it was almost an all tarmac day. Leaving Jamba, we reached Phalodi on Bikaner – Jaisalmer highway. Phalodi is famous for a Bird Sanctuary in Khichan which witnesses thousands of Demoiselle Cranes migrating from Mongolia. I was disappointed to see the lack of maintenance in the sanctuary. Hope it improves in times to come. It was a smooth run from Phalodi to Pokharan. The road after Pokharan to Jaisalmer was under 4 lanes, so we had a few diversions enroute. The surprise of the day came with the lunch at the Officers’ Mess in the Army Cantonment of Jaisalmer. Major Vijay Choudhary - a cousin of our guide for the tour, Mr. Rajesh Bishnoi, was kind enough to host us. Luckily, we got to witness the Arjun Battle Tank. We rode forward from Jaisalmer and to Sam - a tourist village 40 kms west from Jaisalmer. The road to Sam from Jaisalmer is dope. BRO(Border Roads Organization) has maintained the roads very well and the vistas around give a real posh feel, unlike the roads we encountered so far. For the night, we settled in cosy tents pitched right on the desert facing the sand dunes.Route :- Jamba – Phalodi – Pokharan – Jaisalmer – Sam.
