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 42 kms 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 the desert.
If you want to really enjoy the culture and customs of the Thar Desert, we recommend planning a trip to the region during the Jaisalmer 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.
