Jaisalmer is a unique and special city; an oasis in the Thar desert, with a magnificent sandstone fort you can see from miles away. Walking through the cobbled streets of Jaisalmer Fort and you'll find temples, shops and witness magnificent views across the desert at every turn. This is a truly magical place and worth a visit whilst travelling through Rajasthan. Whilst here, you'll stay in a sand-coloured haveli and visit the Fort with our guide.

Day 1 – Arrival in Jaisalmer

Today, you’ll cross the desert to reach the remote desert town of Jaisalmer. Known as the Golden City, due to its mystical Fort which soars from the desert resembling a giant sandcastle. A romantic destination, it’s definitely worth a visit and offers a nice change from some of the more chaotic cities in Rajasthan. You’ll sleep in style, staying in a cosy authentic haveli.

Day 2 – Jaisalmer city walk

This morning, you’ll take a guided walk into the old town of Jaisalmer, which lies entirely within the walls of the fort. The tangle of narrow streets is quite remarkable, with half-hidden havelis, beautifully carved Jain temples and five interconnected palaces. The rest of the day is free to spend as you wish.

Day 3 – Departure from Jaisalmer

This morning after breakfast, your Jaisalmer trip will come to an end. If you like we can extend your stay here and organise an overnight camel safari into the Thar Desert. It’s a truly unique experience and you’ll see more stars in the sky than you’ve likely ever seen.
