Jaisalmer has long been a widely acknowledged tourist place. We often tend to give the “touristy” places a miss, just to avoid being typical. We don’t understand why others don’t see that, touristy is GOOD. Something you should see and feel with all your heart and soul!
And if Jaisalmer is that thing, not seeing the wonder of it would be soo foolish. The Golden city enraptures you right from the beginning with its golden yellow architecture, bright neon colors, exaggerated jewelry and accessories, and overenthusiastic, friendly peddlers.
A truly abundant city in its time, it used to play a significant role as a place of international trade. This fact, is visible in the magnificent carvings in its general architecture and havelis like structures at every nook and corner.
First day calls for experiencing the magnificent sand dunes, The amazing Thar Desert. People from all over the world travel to Jaisalmer to see the miraculous work of nature from their own eyes.
Colorful camels greet you at the starting point of your journey. The place seems right out of a fantasy tale. You hop on the camels and they take you at a pace in which you can slowly fathom the timeless beauty of your surroundings.
You might have to pinch yourself to believe that it’s actually real! You watch the sun set before your eyes, as the camels ride on. An orangish, pinkish hue takes over only to pave way for darkness, in the most beautiful way possible.
Reach your camps at Sam sand dunes, so be prepared for an exciting and thrilling night ahead.
Local artists here make sure you have an evening to remember, by showcasing their music and dancing skills. Women in brightly colored ghagras dance away eagerly in the local dance form ‘Kalbelia’, while the men play the beats and music to match them.
The energy is so contagious, you might want to get up and shake a leg with them yourself! Imagine having great entertainment and appetizing food being served when you’re famished! We call it bliss.
As the night goes on you spend your night under the clear sky boasting off stars as far as your eyes would see. This is a good time to feel grateful for the time that you’re spending here. Doze off with this thought in your mind… The happy, contended you will wake up to cheerful morning.
Let’s give a twist to this trip now, how about something spooky?
Let’s move on to Kuldhara Village, an isolated, barren hamlet which is 18 kilometers from Jaisalmer. And it has a spooky tale to intrigue you. It was abandoned by its villagers around 300 years ago. We won’t spoil the tale for you, so find it out yourself from the few locals there.
Curiosity will make you want to know more, about its history, people, the mud houses and the life here.
Hereon, you will proceed to see the Jaisalmer fort (also known as the Sonar Quila), located in the heart of the city. Rajasthan undoubtedly hosts one of the most interesting and exotic forts and palaces in the country. However, the Jaisalmer fort has a small twist to it.
It still is the authentic fort it was several decades ago. It has witnessed many a battle on its ground, and its sandstone walls still stand strong amidst the new age.
It’s one of the few “living forts” and hosts palaces, havelis, handicraft shops, restaurants, temples, guesthouses etc. inside its complex. Some highlights here are the Jain Temple, Raj Mahal, Maharawal etc.
The Jain temple will definitely astound you and leave you to wonder the amount of love, devotion and effort went into building something so simplistic yet so grand!
After getting some delicious food in your bellies, sleep with an inquisitive mind in your comfortable beds at the hotel.
Next day, get ready to go back to another time in history – the Longewala war back in 1971. We visit the Longewala War Memorial, where you stir up deep respects for our soldiers in your hearts, and pride for your country.
Observe the military equipment, battle photographs, medals, testimonials and more. You are also shown a short 20-minute movie to help you understand the plight of those times, and the necessity of the circumstances.
With this you culminate your trip and venture towards your town again, – but a lot richer. The sweet memories you made in these few days with Tripffee will make you smile again and again over the course of your life.
