Day5-We spent the day relaxing in our camps.We also took the camel ride on the small part of the desert.There was a cultural programme hosted by the camp owners wherein the local music and dance was performed.It was an enjoyable experience.The food offered was good too.

Day6-We left for Delhi early in the morning.We went to Kuldhara which is on the way back from the sand dune camps towards Jaisalmer city.Kuldhara is said to be a haunted village.One can see the ruins of the kingdom and also witness the finely bulit architecture and planning of this ancient kingdom.We took the Bikaner route and stopped at Bikaner for lunch.It is a well built city and yes,the snacks at Bikaner are indeed delicious!

RECOMMENDATION

1) In Jaipur visit the Hawa Mahal and the Amer Fort.

2)Udaipur-Spend an evening at Lake Pichola,Watch the sunset and take a boat ride.Also try and eat dinner at the famous restaurants by the lake side.

3)Jaisalmer-The sand dunes camps are good .Spend a night there and enjoy the folk music and dance performances.It is located literally very far away from the city and is on the westernmost part of India.It feels like a deserted planet over there.But the experience is good.

At Bikaner,try the local snacks.They are delicious. Also for the non vegetarians-do try the Laal Maas in Rajasthan.It is delicious.
