1. Thar Desert
- How to get there: you’ll most definitely need transportation by car. Another option which you can choose is to join in on a camel safari. Unfortunately when we were visiting it was really off season so all of the luxury camps were closed. But if you can I can really recommend The Serai.
- When to go: right before sunset is the most magical time
- What to wear: going barefoot is the way to go here cause I tell you it’s a lot harder than it looks to run around in sand dunes :p
2. Jaisalmer Fort
- How to get there: the entrance of the fort is easily reached by Tuk Tuk. It’s one of the last living forts in the world where about 1/4 of the old population still lives.
- When to go: early morning during sunrise will get you the most spectacular views + empty and clean streets
- What to wear: a flowy dress + sandals you don’t need sneakers to climb this fort 😉
3. Gadsisar Sagar Lake
- How to get there: it’s a short walking distance from the fort
- When to go: we went during sunrise and the light was absolutely magical
- What to wear: if you go during sunrise I would opt for a sheer fabric so you can make even more magic happen with the light!
4. Jain Temples
- How to get there: they are located within the fort
- When to go: they are open every day from 7 am until 1 pm. The charge for entering is around 200 rupies plus an additional fee to take your camera inside as a tourist. Please remember to remove your shoes before entering.
- What to wear: make sure to be dressed decent when you’re visiting temples: preferably a long dress and covered shoulders.
5. Kuldhara – Ghost village
- How to get there: by car, the former village is located around 18km from Jaisalmer city.
- When to go: around sunset
- What to wear: opt for a colour that makes you stand out
