Jaisalmer is barren beauty. I experienced the true mharo Rajasthan in this journey. It is different from places like Jaipur, Udaipur, Bikaner , Alwar to name a few where i had been to. It is less commercialized and very affordable. I recommend a budget travel to this destination so that one can get out of their comfort zone and experience the place in Rajasthani way.
Nature is beautiful in its every form. Let that be Snowy Mountain, rain forest or barren desert. I always wanted to experience the beautiful sunset, sunrise and full moon day in desert. I read somewhere that sand shines like silver here on full moon day and I was all set to witness it.
While many recommend tent stays we opted to sleep under stars. We planned it on full moon day and experience was mesmerizing.We left Jaisalmer city around 3 PM and reached the point to start our camel ride after 45 minutes. As we moved away from hustle and bustle of city there was silence and beauty of dessert started to reveal. We came across small villages of tribes and few resorts. There were huge cactus and very few tress and shrubs here and there. One could gaze the infinite barren land. Colors were so dramatic.
