Jodphur - Jaisalmere

INDIA | Wednesday, 15 October 2008 | Views [535]



5 hours drive through the desert brings us to Jaisalmere, the golden city and the only fort remaining in India that is still inhabited. As Jaisalmere is quite near the Pakistani border and as India and Pakistan don’t see eye to eye on all things there is quite a military presence in the area. We pass army-training camps in the desert and overtake more military trucks than I can count. We are staying a little out of town in another great hotel with another great pool and a fabulous view over Jaisalmere and of the sunset. By the time we arrive and put our bags in our rooms, there’s only just enough time to grab a beer and a seat to watch the sun set over the Thar desert. Beautiful.
