A city, as vibrant and colourful as Jaisalmer, is hard to find. Lying in the expansive Thar Desert, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The credit for this prestigious status, bestowed upon the city, primarily goes to its many splendid architectural paragons and a profound culture. Drawing heavily from the history of the valiant Rajputs, every corner of Jaisalmer exudes a regal charm. The glistening sand of the desert imparts this city a golden hue, thus leading to the sobriquet, the Golden City. Camel safaris, camping in the desert, folk music and dance, exquisite food and a plethora of architectural marvels; Jaisalmer has a number of delights to offer to you. If the beauty of this enchanting region draws you, then embark on the Jaisalmer overnight safari with stay and be a part of something truly extraordinary and unforgettable.
Start the safari trip by visiting one of the most visited attractions in the region, Bada Bagh. This garden complex houses over a hundred cenotaphs that were built in the memory of the legendary rulers of Rajasthan. Next up on the list of the destinations to be visited on this excursion is the magnificent Adeshwar Nath Jain Temple. Noteworthy due to its spectacular architecture, this site holds substantial cultural and religious significance.
Post a visit to the temple, proceed to explore the abandoned village of Kuldhara. A major tourist hotspot, it is believed to be haunted by many. After experiencing the unworldly allure of Kuldhara, head to the village of Barna. Go on a camel ride on sand dunes in Barna village. Enjoy camping in the majestic Thar Desert with a delicious dinner, and a folk dance and music programme. To ensure an enjoyable stay, a Swiss tent with an attached bath is provided to you. At the end of the expedition, return to the city of Jaisalmer.
Set out for the Jaisalmer overnight safari with stay by leaving the city at around two in the afternoon. On the way to the campsite, visit some of the major tourist attractions of the region. Begin with Bada Bagh, the royal cemetery with more than a hundred cenotaphs. These tombs were constructed over many years to serve as memorials to the courageous rulers of Rajasthan. This garden complex also houses a tank and a dam within its boundaries. Examples of the impressive craftsmanship, prevalent in the region, these structures make amazing photography settings.
Post a memorable visit to Bada Bagh, head to the next destination, which is a renowned temple. Named Adeshwar Nath Jain Temple, this religious site is noteworthy because of the ornate carvings adorning its surfaces. Another highlight of the temple is that it is located on the shores of the idyllic Amar Sagar Lake. Spend some moments of solace and discover spirituality at this holy place, and later proceed towards the next attraction, Kuldhara village.
One of the most frequented spots in the Thar region, Kuldhara owes its popularity to the stories of it being haunted and cursed. Abandoned since the 1800s, the village now lies in ruins. Notwithstanding the common belief that the village is haunted, travellers visit it to explore its remains. Whatever is left of the bygone eras, tells the story of the meticulous planning, with which the village was built.
The last leg of the Jaisalmer overnight safari with stay will lead you to the village of Barna. Considering the fact that any trip to the Thar Desert is not complete without a camel ride, you will go on one. Ride through the expansive desert till sunset, and later transfer to the camp. Here, enjoy a delightful vegetarian dinner and an entertaining dance and music programme. Your stay will be convenient as Swiss tent accommodation, which comes with an attached bath, will be provided. Enjoy a comfortable overnight stay in the village of Barna.
Next morning, relish a scrumptious breakfast before you decide whether to go on another camel ride or not. At the end of the safari trip, head back to Jaisalmer in a Jeep.
