    I had spent the night in the Sam desert, in a mud hut and then in a Swiss Tent. I must say it is one of the best experiences of my life. The mud huts and the Swiss Tents both have all the necessary washroom/ toilet facilities and electricity as well. But the best part is it retains the simplicity of the traditional Rajasthani lifestyle in thatched huts.

    The Swiss style tents are a bit lavish when compared to mud huts. But its fun neverthelss. Additionally, the evening is spent in being audience to traditional Rajasthani music and Kalbeliya dance style along with snacks and tea. You can join in with the dancers as well.

    The dinner again is typical Rajasthani, with the "dal-baati-chhurma" and "rajsthani kadi" et al.

    Trio - restaurant with a view: Fortress view at night

    by jmackey Updated Dec 2, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the evening, try and select a place to eat that has a view of the fortress which is lit with lights making a beautiful backdrop.

    I went with friends to Trio, which is considered the best restaurant in town with good reviews from Lonely Planet and Frommers Guide.

    The food is good, catering for tourists and rich locals. The view is fantastic, so try and reserve an outside table upstairs looking towards the fort.

    Abandoned Village: Wild New Years Eve Party!!!

    Abandoned Village

    On our last day fo the camel trek sometime about mid-afternoon we could see a stream of dust coming across the desert. After a while this stream of dust approached us. It was M.S. the Hotel Owner. He asked us if we wanted to join him for a New Years Celebration. Well my attitude was "How much is this going to cost"? And he said Free hmmm....sounds like a great deal to me!! So we had to make our way across the desert and get back to town by early evening so we couldn be hauled back out into the desert by Jeep! M.S. wasn't joking! He had all kinds of food set up on tables! The alcohol was flowing in the form of Desert Moonshine! And other mind altering appetisers were there too! After a great night of having way to much fun I woke up in the morning face down in the sand and not inside my sleeping bag! Needless to say I don't do wild stuff like that anymore!!

    The Great Thar Desert: Listening to the nighttime sounds of the desert

    by herzog63 Written Jun 27, 2003

    Evening in the desert

    In the evening all we did was tell stories or listen to the stories and then listen to the dogs or coyotes howl. Staring at the stars was a favorite pasttime too! We could see many satelites passing overhead

    Dress Code: You will want a warm sweater or light jacket. I remember now that I put the wrong information into one of my tips!! I didn't have a sweatshirt with me!! I had a shawl type wrap that the locals used that's what I wore around my shoulders in the evening before climbing into my sleeping bag. Sorry but this trip was 1985...I'm having fun building this page as I'm reliving the trip in my mind!!
    Here in the photo you can see the moon and the camels are starting to bed down for the evening.
