Dotted with huts, buildings and endless scrub, I’d left any romantic visions of mountainous sand dunes and empty desert at home.
After all, this is India and not Arabia. Spotless and dramatic sand dunes are few and far between.
Desert experiences in Rajasthan and Jaisalmer (a town in the far north of Rajasthan) are almost inseparable. Most desert camps, camel rides, and even sunset watching from the dunes take place in Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer, however, as I found out for myself has come under a lot of pressure from the number of tourists in recent years. Finding a quiet spot in the sand for yourself may prove to be mission impossible.
