Travelers in India may launch their desert adventure from the historic town of Jaisalmer, located in the very heart of the desert of Rajasthan. Barmer, Jodhpur, and Bikaner are other common places to begin desert expeditions. Sam Village, Khuri Village, Ludharwa, Kanoi and Kuldhara are the main locations where you can find sand dunes.
Rajasthan is internationally renowned for its majestic temples, forts, palaces and rich culture and tradition. But it is also famous for magnificent sand dunes on vast expanses of Great Indian Desert called Thar Desert. One of the most special characteristics of Rajasthan are its ripples and sand dunes. Travelers from all over the world visit Rajasthan to experience the thrill of sandboarding, dune bashing, and camel riding.
