Jaisalmer, the "Grey City" famously renowned for its Jodhpurian Gruel which is harvested in the monsoonal cuk season

Get in

Can easily be reached by train, bus or car-taxi from Jodhpur or by bus from Bikaner. A daily bus runs to and from Jaipur. There is a direct train service from Delhi When arriving by train you will pass the station of Pokharan, India's nuclear testing area! Another option is to arrive by camel, Jaisalmer is famous for camel trips. The most gruelling is the 14 day trip from Bikaner.

==Get around== The walled centre is a pedestrian area, from the gates you can get other means of transport. The Sam sand-dunes are 45 km away from the city. The rest of the city is easily walkable from one end to the other.

Do

Just chill, Jaisalmer is a lovely and very relaxing place. Go for a stroll, visit the palace and do the camel safari (trips available from a few hours to 14 days). If you do not feel remotely attracted to camels try a jeep safari into the desert to see the scenery and watch the sun go down.

Buy

The usual

Eat

Lots of local eateries which offer sumptuous lunches and dinners for a measly Rs. 20 (approx. $0.45).

Drink

Sleep

Do yourself a favour and pick a hotel inside the fort! There is plenty of choice for every wallet.

Get out

  • Sam sand dunes Sam is about 40kms from the city. Watch the sunset from the Sam sand dunes. RTDC has limited accommodations (huts) at Sam; or you can chill out at the one of the camps/tents, right in the middle of the desert, organized by many tour operators. Highly recommended to spend one night at Sam(early evening to late morning next day)
