Desert Safari in Jaisalmer

by Madhav Srinivasan 5 year, 5 months ago

With record limits of temperature, rural life in its entire naturally colorful swagger and an eerie sense of the unknown deserts that mesmerize all travelers, the place brings a unique touch to the myriad of wonders of the Indian culture.

Although an important constituent of the rich and historic sands of Rajasthan and more so the oriental Indian flavor, Jaisalmer continues to stand out and amuse generations on a strength of homegrown local culture. A desert safari in Jaisalmer is as essential on trips as paying homage to the Taj Mahal in Agra in person or a sumptuous ride of Shikaras in Srinagar’s Dal Lake.

Deserts in Jaisalmer have caught the flights of fascination of one and all. Withstanding the continuous pressures of high levels of heat hovering around an average of 50 degree C, they are far from easy. However the ‘highs’ derived from adventuring the naked and enterprising deserts in the true colors cannot be substituted by any other natural confinement. The raw dust of gold all over with only a camel for support is a lifetime experience in its own.

Times may have changed dramatically in the last millennium; however the camel in a desert safari in Jaisalmer continues to be perhaps the single most symbol of tradition in its youth. With limited water (as good as being breathless in deserts) and bumpy and uneasy rides, the camel-ride is still a popular experience and is looked forward to by anybody who has heard or read about Rajasthan.

Glimpses of Rajasthan through a Tourist’s Eyes

From foreign tourists who are not at all well-versed with the locally humid temperatures, to film makers of the class and stature of Satyajit Ray, Jaisalmer has successfully attracted the cream of tourism communities and is still widely sought after. The sprawling deserts along with the simple and hospitable breed of local inhabitants make any tourist’s time memorable.

A memorable experience can only be cultivated by spending some quality time with the local camel riders and their carefully crafted intuitions of time and weather simply by looking at the behavior of sands. The rich historic cities and monuments with ample anecdotes and timelines create a sense of continued chivalry and hallmark of sacrifice that came naturally to the warrior clans of this land. A desert safari in Jaisalmer is incomplete by itself if the city and its rich culture are not befriended on the way.


Camel Rides and Beyond

Rajasthan along with all its towns, provinces, rural areas and cities is incomplete to relive without the distinct and satiating gourmet that is prepared on an out and out local flavor. High on calories and rich in taste, the local preparations have attained fame and pomposity across the world.

Most of its age old forts and erstwhile palaces have been transformed into awesome sights of audacious touring and hoteling experiences. Making the most out of the growing industrial globalization in international tourism and the attached convenience that comes with it, an excursion in Rajasthan is much more than just a routine desert safari in Jaisalmer. Still famous for its desert culture are also the folk dances and musical songs that are sung by gypsies and rural womenfolk at nights in groups on deserts.
