The golden city of Jaisalmer rises like a mirage from the flat expanses of the Thar Desert.

The thick walls of the fort enclose a maze of narrow streets lined with elaborately carved havelis and other buildings.

Walking tour

Ladies selling Vegetables, JaisalmerA walking tour gives an excellent insight into a way of life seemingly little changed for centuries.

The cries of hawkers selling vibrantly colored Rajasthani wall hangings echo through the fort's atmospheric alleyways as bullocks amble along the streets, while away from the city and beyond the dunes a camel ride under the desert stars is an impossibly romantic experience.
