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.
