A 3 hr safari in the DNP was the highlight of our trip to Jaisalmer. I recommend going early, to get past the checkpost at sunrise. In March, we saw many unusual birds: the critically endangered great indian bustard, cinereous and griffon vultures, eastern imperial eagle, trumpeter finch, the isabelline and desert wheatears, black-crowned sparrow lark and the greater short-toed lark. Best of all, they were easy to spot in the wide open desert and made for some wonderful photographs against the dunes.

There is very limited traffic here: most people head for the dunes for a camel safari instead, and that too later in the day. So if you are interested in wildlife, do NOT miss this!

While we enjoyed the jeep ride and a bit less the camel ride, it seems that there are too many tourists coming there, especially during the Desert Festival and you have a feeling that it will destroy the natural beauty of the dunes.

This is the best activity in Jaisalmer. We did Jeep safari in the desert which was the best thrilling and adventure activity in rajasthan and the camel ride which is also absolute fun. In the evening there was folk dance and folk songs followed by rajasthani dinner. The whole activity takes around 5 -6 hours which is worth it.

Km after Km of sand and shrubs and Wind turbines. its amazing we have a road here -- rather a network of roads for the Indian Army to move in isolation away from the main highways. you can come back complaining about NOTHING - or you can APPRECIATE the "NOTHING"
