Jaisalmer Adventure Tourism

Known as the "Golden City", Jaisalmer-a famous city in Rajasthan, stands on a ridge of yellowish sandstone in the middle of Thar Desert. Touted as one of the most vibrant and colorful cities of India, this city is known for its exotic sand dunes giving it the look and feel of a town right out of a fairy tale.

Jaisalmer Tourism forms an inseparable part of a visit to Rajasthan and is famous with tourists who throng the city for glimpse of its medieval mud fortress and walled township. The desolate landscape surrounding the town provides a stark background to the picturesque Jaisalmer.


Jaisalmer Fort, built in 12thcentury is one of the must-see aspects of Jaisalmer tourism. The fort stands tall on the Trikuta Hill and had been the scene of many Rajputana battles. The sandstone walls of the fort merge with the hues of the desert giving it a tawny lion color during the day and honey-gold color as the sun sets. The fort in itself is a town defended by 99 turrets and 25% of the Jaisalmer population lives inside the fort. Walking across the by-lanes inside the fort is memory to treasure.

The Jaisalmer Fort was an important trade post before the advent of commercial shipping. The palace and the havelis inside the Jaisalmer Fort boast of sculptural filigree, screen windows, delicate pavilions and beautiful balconies. Jaisalmer sightseeing is never complete without a visit to the beautiful Havelis and experience the grandeur of the merchants who built these. Patwon ki Haveli, Nathmalji ki Haveli, Haveli Shreenath and Salam Singh-ki-Haveli are some of the most visited Havelis.

Jaisalmer desert safari forms a part and parcel of Jaisalmer sightseeing providing an opportunity to the visitors to enjoy the shimmering glory of the Thar Desert. A camel safari along the sand dunes provides a fantastic view of the massive desert at the same time providing glimpses of the rustic look and feel of a Rajasthani village. Most of the Jaisalmer desert safari routes cover the ancient havelis, abandoned palaces and beautiful temples leaving one in awe of the architectural aura. Authentic Rajasthani food, traditional music and an opportunity to participate in the cultural programs hosted at various zones across the desert, make it a worthwhile experience.

Jaisalmer is well-connected by road from Jaipur, Ajmer and Bikaner. Jaisalmer has a railway station which is well-connected with major cities within and outside of Rajasthan. Jodhpur (285 kms) is the nearest airport. The temperatures are usually high in Jaisalmer and the best time to visit would be December to February, when the temperatures are recorded closer to 250 C.


Jaisalmer is famous for its rich and tasty vegetarian cuisine with some of the famous items being jawar ki roti, gatte ki subzi and dal bhati choorma. The accommodation is available in and around the town from budget hotels to grand palaces. Gorbandh Jaisalmer, often called the charm of Jaisalmer, is one of the premium heritage hotels in Jaisalmer and gives one a feel of staying inside a palace. The guests at Gorbandh Jaisalmer receive a royal treatment while maintaining a traditional Rajasthani ambience without compromising on any of the modern facilities.
