Rightly named as Golden city, Jaisalmer is made up of yellow stones and situated in Thar desert in Rajasthan, India. Jaisalmer is famous for its culture, desert safaris, medieval architecture, and folk music. I planned a two days trip with my friends over a weekend to explore this stunning city.
The best time to travel to Jaisalmer is from November to January. During this period, the weather is not too hot in the day and pretty cold at night. We started our trip in the end of December, taking overnight Volvo bus from Ahmedabad to Jaisalmer. It takes approximately 10 hours to reach the city and from drop center we had to take an auto rickshaw to Thar desert.
Generally people stay in the city and go to desert for safari, which is a convenient and cheaper option. However, we wanted to stay a night at the camps right in the desert.
When we reached our camps, it was too hot in the Noon time. Although facilities were good in the tent and food served was delicious. After resting for some time, we headed for desert safari by evening 5:00 pm.
