I had heard about Jaisalmer from a fellow traveler at a small restaurant in Agra. He described it so beautifully and he had my heart pounding with excitement as he told stories about this place that I had never heard of. After I went back to my guesthouse I dug my Lonely Planet India guide out of my backpack and found this mysterious place. Hmmmm..... not a whole lot of information but looks quite interesting! As I didn't really know what I wanted to see in India at that time I decided to work my way west through Rajasthan until I could lay my eyes on Jaisalmer. Meeting that guy was one of the greatest meetings I ever had! I usually don't talk with very many other foreigners while I travel as I prefer to meet local people as that is what I'm there for.
Disclaimer: I think Jaisalmer has changed over the years so most or all of my information could be very outdated as it's based on my experiences from 1985!!
- Pros:Great Camel trekking .....Beautiful Views...
- Cons:I didn't have any
- In a nutshell:Fantastic destination!!
On our last day fo the camel trek sometime about mid-afternoon we could see a stream of dust coming across the desert.... more travel advice
After I moved out of the first hotel I moved into the hotel run by M.S. and his family. It is a great family run... more travel advice
