  • Even in December, winter days are not too cold. So pack light and cool clothes.
  • A Cab is the best option as destinations are far from each other
  • Keep a check on what all camp packages include as organizers are trying to fool off the tourists.
  • Always book a reputed luxury camp when going with family.


I always wanted to see the sand dunes and I loved it. The best place which really touched me emotionally is Longewala Border. It’s a must visit place as per me.

The uniqueness of the Jaisalmer is its golden stone and the uniform architecture all around.

Jaisalmer is the right place which offers a perfect blend of patriotism, culture and luxury.
