Jaisalmer and Environs Travel Guide

Jaisalmer and Environs

The stark, compelling beauty of the Thar Desert draws travelers to far-western Rajasthan—for good reason. Jaisalmer is a picture-perfect medieval city resplendent with golden homes and havelis and a towering citadel, which is an intriguing town in its own right, and is an excellent base for camel safaris into the desert and for day-trips to the photogenic Sam Sand Dunes and Desert National Park. It is easily one of India’s most unforgettable destinations, and well worth the journey to this farthest corner of the state.
