Jaisalmer - National desert park
Posted January 26th, 2013 - 9:57 am by from Nachod, Czech Republic (Permalink)
me and my friend are going to visit Jaisalmer. We are looking for any trip advice, what we can do there or if you have some contacts (e-mail, website) on people who can offer us tour packages.

We imagine something like go to desert on camel, maybe spend one night there, visit lake which is there and so on.

Thank you for any tips.

Have a nice day

Hey David,

you don't have to plan anything buddy, once you will be there you will explore many things like visiting jaisalmer palace, lakes and city walk.

I suggest you to try camel safari in jaisalmer. which is like tour on camel in desert, some of private tour guides and hotels also have desert camps in night where you enjoy traditional dance of Rajasthan and food in middle of desert.

My advise is not to plan anything and just go and explore :-)

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.

I have not given you any particular safari name or reference because i don't want to be biased.

Dear David,

Thar Desert is 7-10 Km away from the Jaisalmer city and as the city primary income comes from tourism , people may try to over charge you.

For the camel safari, you can contact -99504 18891, This guy owns camel and come with good reference from backpackers. ( He is villager from Khuri and speak only Hindi.) He provides camel & food , if you are planning overnight trip , take your sleeping bag.

I hope this will be helpful
