About Desert Vacations
The desiccated and semi-arid regions of the Thar desert flock most of the area of Rajasthan. A vast expanse of rolling sand dunes, Thar can be extremely hostile with temperatures shooting up to boiling hot during the day and plummeting to as low as freezing cold during the night time. The meager rainfall and extreme climatic conditions make it a truly challenging, yet fascinating desert experience, which comes alive with the warm and extremely hospitable people who are always geared up to amuse their guests with traditional song and dance performances while supporting their colorful and extremely beautiful traditional attire.
Sand, sand and more sand as far as you can envision. With these types of arid environs, it is hard to imagine how the area could once have been a huge pool of water full of myriad species of aquatic life. According to popular belief, the legendary prince Rama decided to dry up the ocean to make his way to Lanka. Before he could play his magic, the ocean God appeared and begged for mercy, to which Rama shot his arrow to a distant location and dried up another sea...giving rise to today's Thar desert! The thrill of roaming an exotic land, the wrapping sand dunes, thorny bushes and hot sand mountains along with majestic forts and palaces that rise in tears like a golden mirage, make the desert a preffered haunt for tourists and adventurers from across the globe.
The Desert Circuit
The top 'hot' spots in the desert circuit of Thar entail the cities of Jaisalmer, Bikaner and Jodhpur, each famed for its diverse features in the fields of culture, customs, clothing and cuisine. Roam across the deserts of rustic Rajasthan which promise an enthralling and unmatched experience.
Safaris are considered the best way to explore every nook and lane of the Thar and get up close with the multifariousness of Rajasthan. Desert safaris come in varied shapes and sizes entailing such adventures as Jeep safari and Camel safari. While jeep safari is a fast and audacious people's game, camel safari transforms one into an explorer and introduces to life in the past times, when the ship of the desert was used by travelers to cross the relentless deserts.
Life in the Desert
A number of tiny yet enchanting villages are located along the entire safari route. These villages perfectly manifest the rich cultural heritage and a legacy of the royal past of Rajasthan. The people are extremely hospitable and greet the guests with a warm smile, in spite of the harsh climatic conditions they have to deal with. The primary occupation and means of livelihood of these people are cattle and other livestock rearing.
