At that time – I was quite content with the journey and how it shaped up so far” shares Sonia.Longewala was a breath of fresh air.

Not just the camel safaris, but sitting with the folk singers and enjoying their music about everyday life in Rajasthan is sheer bliss. The music of Jaisalmer is a mixture of folk and Indian Classical. Their language is influenced from Sindh and is a bit different from typical Rajasthani. The Gadisar Lake, Jaisalmer Fort and the Desert National Park are among the many attractions in the beautiful city. The climate is extreme so cover your body whenever you are out to escape from the heat of the sun.
