A lovely place, though a bit commercialised, but even commercialization have its perks! You can get chilled beer right in the desert for just 200 bucks! Be here on full moon night and you will love it! Great sunset too

As we surged ahead on the excellent roads maintained by the Indian air force ,... More

We have visited Sam Sand Dines in October 2014 and enjoy camel ride & sunset view from Sam Sand Dunes which is 40 Kms west of Jaisalmer city. Then we had dinner on sand dunes with folk dance which was excellent.

Excellent place to be at, watch sunrise and sunset. Enjoy local folk dances and music by the locals in dunes.....they usually come to ask for money against their art. Enjoy camel ride in the mid of sand. Kids love this place a lot as they can play with the sand and then can jump and enjoy.
