There is no point coming to the Thar Desert if you don’t go for a Desert Safari! This is the main reason why the Sam Sand Dunes are becoming the major attraction in Jaisalmer, they are the closest place to town from where you can lose yourself in ‘the Great Thar Desert’.
Sam has a truly magnificent stretch of sweeping dunes, with sparse or no vegetation. The best way to get here, of course, is on camelback!
Join a camel caravan at Jaisalmer on your Rajasthan tour and ride along the breathtaking crests and troughs. Enjoy the romance of solitude as your camel takes you deep into the heart of the Thar Desert. Discover the freedom of camping, watch the sun setting behind the horizon, organize a bonfire with fellow tourists during the evening and enjoy the rustic and earthy music and dance of Rajasthan.
In the months of February/March, this whole place turns into a cultural hub. The desert festival organized amid these dunes is the showcase of Rajasthani culture as a whole. Open-air cultural extravaganzas, puppet shows, folk dance performances, camel races, competitions and general festivities mark this annual event that is held with great pomp and show at the Sam Sand Dunes in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan.
