Travel Tips for Jaisalmer

some history (II) - frozen in medieval times

by josephescu

With the fall of the Mughal Empire in the mid 1700s, commerce shifted to the sea ports, and the age of camel caravans drew to a close. The opening of the Suez Canal and the creation of Pakistan in 1947 further accelerated its demise. Isolated, a five-day journey on camel from the nearest city, Jaisalmer, having grown wealthy on the proceeds of the trade routes, slipped into obscurity, frozen in its medieval history.

Today, walking through the narrow cobbled streets, evidence of the city's rich trading past is everywhere. The ancient fort, the second oldest in Rajasthan, and perhaps the oldest still-inhabited citadel in the world, soars 90 meters above a maze of streets, squares, palaces, and clusters of dwellings, all in the local golden yellow sandstone. Atop the Trikuta (triple-peaked) hill, where, as legend has it, a Brahmin hermit related to Jaisal the prophesy that Krishna and Arjunaruler would one day build a fort, life goes on, almost as it has for centuries.

Loose clothes are a must

by Yso

Take a hat - you will be in the middle of the desert. Also if goig camel trekking make sure to take loose but sturdy clother and wear boxer shorts in preference to other types of underwear (even the girls) to avoid "nappy rash"

Khuri Village/Khuri Sand Dunes

by RAJASTHANBYCAR

This fascinating desert village, located near sand dunes, lies 50 km south-west of Jaisalmer. Its huts, typical of the desert regions of Rajasthan, are brilliant examples of folk design, at once highly functional (they are designed to withstand 48 degree temperatures and 80 Kms per hour desert winds) as well as being highly esthetic. Made of clay mixed with cow dung, each hut is actually a complex of different functional spaces around a central courtyard, the whole of which-walls, floor and rooms-seems to be molded out of one single piece of clay. Their strikingly decorative folk art, ornate papiermache storage systems and mandana floor patterns are not to be missed.
There are some Guest house for over night Camal safari real test of Desert.Now a days Khuri is the best place for Camal Safari around Jaisalmer or in Rajasthan.They offer you Camel safari, Dinner with Folk Dance and sleeping under the stars get more fun.

Eating al fresco

by Willettsworld about Camel Trek

Our guide cooked us some great food during our camel trek. All the food cooked was vegetarian as we're on the move all the time and so storing meat is impossible. It was actually nice to eat food that you saw being prepared, in India, instead of it being prepared behind the scenes in a restaurant. For lunch on the first day we ate pea and carrot curry, chapatis and chi which was very good. He also cooked me another curry dish which was very spicy which I also liked as I like spicy food. For dinner that evening, he cooked us cauliflower and pea curry, rice, chapatis, fruit and more chi. Breakfast consisted of porridge (which was dry and not very nice) with chopped banana, toast, jam and chi. On the second day he cooked us lunch of cabbage and other veg curry.

Bumpy Camelride

by aukjejetty

If you have never done it before I would suggest a cameltrek. Although from my own experience I would not suggest a long one. One day was enough for me, my butt was very sore for a long time afterwards.
The great thing about it was the desert, just to travel through it and sitting up so high that you can see everything at a different level.
