  • Overview/Itinerary

    Jaisalmer is one of those perfect havens for backpackers. It is a former medieval trading center
    and handsome state to the extreme west of Rajasthan. Due to its position in the heart of the
    Thar Desert, it attracts backpackers from all over the world. Jaisalmer is also famous for its use
    of yellow sandstone in its architectures, which earned it the name of ‘the Golden City.’ It is safe
    to concur that the beauty and charm of Jaisalmer is unmatchable. During its heydays, it used to
    be a part of the renowned Silk Route. The most notable structure in Jaisalmer is the fort which
    sits right in the middle of the city. The Jaisalmer Fort stands proudly and narrates the bravery,
    strength, and honor of the Rajput rulers. Jaisalmer retains its medieval allure with its colorful
    narrow streets, mesmerizing forts, opulent havelis, and bazaars.

     

    Highlights about Jaisalmer

    Having an aura of royalty, Jaisalmer is located in the Thar desert and is one of the only cities in the whole world to have a living fort inside it. Fascinatingly, the Jaisalmer fort houses almost 1/4th of the city's residents. It has been dubbed ‘the Golden City’ due to the sparkling glow caused when the sun falls on all the yellow sandstone architecture. It is a superb place to enjoy a plethora of activities - from dune bashing and desert camping all the way to exploring haunted forts and antique shopping. Never miss a chance to visit this grand city of golden sands.
