After mountains, beaches, and roadtrips, my heart craved for another adventure - Spending a night in a desert and that's what brought me to JAISALMER
Now Jaisalmer needs no introduction, thanks to its royal persona and a rich history.
But I wanted to do it my way - which means staying away from the tourist traps and getting a glimpse of the REAL JAISALMER.
The standout experiences were:
• Staying in the heritage themed hostels
• Exploring the colourful rooftop cafes
• Riding the bike across the desert national park
Now the major reason to go to Jaisalmer was to do a desert safari
But not the touristy one. The off-beat craver in me wanted something more, something more raw, real and wild. So with 3 other enthusiasts I headed for an overnight safari, away from the popular Sam Sand dunes in the depths of the desert. I'll always remember this night as the time I saw my first shooting star :)
I came to Jaisalmer only for the desert experience. But the city has a soul reflective of its royal reminiscence. You may be a photographer, foodies, adventure freak, art enthusiast or a nature lover - Jaisalmer somehow finds its way to leave a lasting impression.
