A trip to Sam sand dunes is a one of experiences you don't forget in a lifetime..with the vastness of the desert in front of you and the sun setting at the far end, it is something you shouldn't miss. It would be better if you go a little far off than the area around the camps, which are full... More

Sam dune is where they usually take you for a quick camel ride in the desert. This is the cheapest option and closest to Jaisalmer. It is the desert but not a spectacular desert, if you've seen other. It's a 30 minute ride (approx. I don't remember very well) from Jaisalmer. They often offer to take you in a jeep,... More

This dune has become crowded over the years. If you want to visit a better dune, then go for Khuri Village.. But nonetheless you will experience desert the way you have always wanted

Please must visit once in your life, then you realize the real beauty of The great Thar Desert and rajasthani culture and tradition. Enjoy camel ride at the time of sunset and at night stay in the tent and enjoy local rajasthani dance and songs. The best.

Camel ride, camel cart ride, sunset on sand dunes, kalbelia dance, folk songs, desert camp altogether a fun filled evening. Bargain hard as the agent is getting a cut of 40% so the best option is too book directly.
