Pickup Point

About


  • Jaisalmer, popularly called “The sun city” due to the shimmering mirage in the Thar desert, was named after a Rajput king, Maharawal Jaisal Singh. The city of Jaisalmer is also known as ‘the Golden City’. This is because the yellow sand and the sandstone used to make the structures in this city give it a golden yellow appearance and leave the guests charmed.
  • The Desert camp is placed comfortably 30 km away from the city centre, in the deep golden sand dunes of Jaisalmer and offers multiple amenities and activities to welcome their guests to let them enjoy a lavish stay.
  • This camp also organises camel safaris to take a view of sunset and sunrise and arranges Rajasthani traditional cultural values to let you immerse in a different world. A night camel safari into the deserts will give you a real experience of desert flavour. It is well suitable for families as well as kids while offering them added advantages.
