Colorful Skies- Sunset at Jaisalmer sand dunes



Jaisalmer is a wild desert and vast district in the state of Rajasthan. I went on a camel ride and by the time I reached the deep inside the dunes it was sunset time! My camel decided to sit and take some rest. Hardly people were around and the sunset looked exactly like in the picture. Me, my camel and its caretaker!

  17. Ah! that's so beautiful.
    Lucky you. I happened to go on a desert safari in Jaisalmer on a New years day. It wasn't exactly a great idea. The desert was not at all a deserted place that day. :)But it was still a good day, and a place to remember. :)

    1. In the tourist season you will find a big crowd. It is nice to go mid or late Feb when the season is ending. And ask the camel-man to take you to inside the desert, he will if you pay little extra.
