Jaisalmer Desert in India is totally about experiencing the beauty of desert. The slow wind, sunny dry desert, Camels and colors of guides and the tours of Safari. Long caravan of camels moving as if they were doing the trade through the Silk Road or moving a bride or princess from one place to another in the old days on the top of the camel with a guide holding the leash of the camel. When the long caravan of camels head back to the tent in the evening before the sunset on the safari, it is an amazing experience. The sun seems bigger and so perfect in the desert of Jaisalmer in the sunset. You have the option to choose between tents in desert or choose a hotel to stay but for sure the experience will be different. The camels, calm desert and the sunset makes it one of those unforgettable memories.
After a long day of desert safari many tours end up in the desert tents, have dinner around fire in open with live Indian traditional music and dances. It is really an experience. Make sure your camera is fully charged to photograph this amazing experience.
