The state of Rajasthan is one of the most famous and most visited places in
India. The state is full of sightseeing opportunities, raw natural beauty,
impressive backdrops, vibrant culture, mouthwatering cuisines and interesting
shopping opportunities. When it comes to travel and tourism, the state of
Rajasthan is the most complete package any traveler can wish for. One of the
best ways to experience the glory of Rajasthan is to sign up for Rajasthan
tours, which allow you to visit the famous sand dunes.
Rajasthan tours are most popular with people who want to visit the world-
famous sand dunes of the state. The dunes of Rajasthan are known to be
magical, enchanting and truly glorious. The most famous feature of these
dunes is that change shape and turn different colors and hues every few
minutes. The glorious dunes, shaped by the strong winds of the desert, are
known to have a spellbinding effect on all who visit them. The Sam Sand
Dunes of Jaisalmer are a top tourist spot. The sand dunes can be found at a
distance of 42kms from Jaisalmer. From this spot, visitors can see the
seemingly never-ending desert expanse of the Thar Desert in all directions.
The best way to see the sand dunes on Rajasthan Tours is via the camel
safari. Usually the trip is spread over a period of 4 days and 3 nights. To make
the trip more entertaining and to embellish the experience of exploring the
sand dunes there are folk performances every evening. From the lively local
dances and the haunting folk music to a variety of other performing arts, these
evenings are full of fun and festivity. On the safari one can visit the nearby
villages to get an authentic idea of how life in the desert is structured. There
are also several ruins and old temples in the region which add to the appeal of
If you want to really enjoy the culture and customs of the Thar Desert, we
recommend planning a trip to the region during the annual desert festival.
During the festival you can spend nights under the glimmering, diamond-like
stars of the night sky, watch as the sun sets every evening lending a red color
to the whole desert and watch as the camels slowly make their way through
the desert sand. The annual desert festival is known for the sound and light
show and the beautiful dance and music performances that are organized
during this time. Campfires in the night are complemented with the finger-
licking spicy cuisine of Rajasthan while the melodious music lends a magical
touch to the evening.
If you need any more reasons to visit the sand dunes, then know that it is
possibly one of the most enriching ways to learn about the history of India and
study an important chapter of Indian past. The rustic desert life and the
remains of ancient ruins as well as the temples and forts in the state offer a
chance to glimpse into the traditional and old ways of life in India.
