Your day-by-day itinerary
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.
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.
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.
Jaisalmer – Camel Safari
Plod into the sunset and sleep under a blanket of stars in the Thar Desert. Cross endless dunes, pass nomadic villages and sit around the campfire with a steaming cup of chai. Setting out from Jaisalmer, you’ll spend one night in the vast emptiness of the Thar Desert, sleeping in a desert tent under twinkling stars.
