"Thar Desert" India Favorite Tip by DanielF

India General: 413 reviews and 330 photos


Favorite thing: The Thar dessert, close to the Pakistani border, is supposed to be one of the dryest areas in India. However, the Monsson had been particularly wet a few weeks before our arrival, so everywhere it was green and blooming, with plenty of temporary ponds that cattered for an interesting wild fauna.

When in the area, most visitors decide to take excursions on camel on the sand dunes.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
