Activities in Jaisalmer
this particular fort is one of the most iconic structures in the entire city of Jaisalmer. Exhibiting the constructional design of traditional Rajasthani architecture, this 5 storied structure is something that one would and should not miss out on when in Jaisalmer. The architecture of this fort can be divided into three layers of walls. The outermost layer is made up of solid stone blocks, the second layer envelopes the fort and the third layer is an inward partition that mounted defences like boiling water, hot oil and huge rocks during times of war. The fort being situated on a hillock also provides excellent views of the city down below. The grand view of the outstretched plains and the never ending horizon is something that will definitely mesmerize you.
Camel Riding and the Desert Safaris
Rajasthan is the only state in India that is home to a desert and one of the best places to enjoy the sand is Jaisalmer. Being at the vicinity of the majestic and raw Thar desert, Jaisalmer provides the perfect opportunity to experience a desert life and its ways. The best thing about these desert safaris is the camel rides, though one can access camel rides in many places in Rajasthan there isn’t an experience like riding one in a desert. Move to the gait of the camel that you are on as you explore the bareness of the desert and its golden sand dunes that shift each day. A desert sunset is something that is so beautiful and fascinating that it can be termed to be one of the best kinds of sunsets that you would ever see in your life time.
Dune bashing and offroading
these are some of the new adventure activities that have come up with the wake of automobile advancements. This thrilling adventure activity is an indulgence that will get your adrenaline pumping and nerves tingling. This is a sport that has gained much popularity with especially the adventure seeking crowd. Feel the power of the four wheel drive, turbo engine driven car bobbing up and down as you conquer the sand dunes that ride and fall every few intervals. Offroading too provides one with a thrill that is grand and adrenaline pumping. This activity is mostly for people over the age of 16 and those who have a heart that can handle it.
Spotting wild life in the Desert National Park
this particular national park is a very unique one as compared to others in India as it is smack in the middle of barren lands that have little or no vegetation at all. Moreover the salt lakes, barren lands, rocky outcrops and sand dunes make it hard to sustain life. However, even amidst all this unfavorable condition there is a favorable amount of wild life here which consists of birds, mammals and fish. Some of the wildlife that you can get to spot around in this Desert national park includes desert cat, hares, Indian fox, chinkara and deer. Among the birds the most common one is the Great Indian Bustard which also happens to be the state bird of Rajasthan. Witnessing life in this harsh conditions is something that makes us acknowledge that mother nature is indeed great and has sustained everyone on the planet.
this particular lake is one of the most visited lake in all of Jaisalmer and it would be a shame if one didn’t visit it when here. This lake at one time served as a water reservoir for the entire state of Rajasthan however today stands just as a major tourist attraction and a place for migratory birds to roost. There are many temples around the lake which also has given it the status of a pilgrimage center.
