SAM SAND DUNES | Jaisalmer Solo Travel 1.0

 

                                                   “ऐ खुदा रेत के समुन्दर को सेहरा कर दे ,

                                                     तुझ को देखा नहीं महसूस किया है मैंने

                                                    आ किसी दिन मिरे एहसास को पैकर कर दे।“

                                                    HAPPY NEW YEAR 2019 to y’all !

Of late I took some time off from everything and traveled a little.

And so I did my first ever solo travel to the Golden City. I was a bit skeptical about the destination and after all the R&D I opted for Jaisalmer; Reasons precisely unknown to me : was it some past life connect to the Desert or the royal vibes of Rajasthan.

I‘ll start this blog with my visit to the most authentic dunes of the THAR Desert in India, “SAM SAND DUNES”.

I took a cab around 3:30pm from Jaisalmer city and drove 45kms towards the west and reached my Campsite around 4:30pm. I relaxed in my Swiss Tent for a while, had some snacks and tea. And then I got ready for the cultural fest along with Bonfire, talking aloud about the rich history of Rajasthan Folk and culture followed by Dinner and D.J. I met some Gujrati tourist families who taught me Garba as well.

Stargazing while lying on the desert is a must as the place is not so populous so because of less pollution the sky is pretty much clear in the nights.

The next morning I started at 6:00 AM with my pre booked beautiful maroon 4×4 Thar jeep for the Desert Safari. Standing at the back of my open SUV I could feel the breeze on my face as pure as the soul of a child. As I reached in the middle of the desert, ‘Mesmerizing’ is the apt word for the view of the beautiful sand castles.

A sunrise in the desert is one of the most majestic spectacles one can ever witness. Its beauty is a powerful force, Capable of imparting its warmth on the most hardened souls. It inspires, it energizes, it renews, and it gives hope.

I witnessed it and let the energy sink in as the sun rose. Got some pictures clicked by my very sweet guide and driver Shambhu whom I am eternally thankful for.

The Dune bashing and Camel Safari experience was incomplete without a photo halt  while playing with the sand and embracing the foot prints on the sand.

As an art lover I know Monalisa by Leonardo Da Vinci is one of the world best work of art but I felt that the most beautiful masterpiece is not stroked on any canvas but the strokes of air making millions of perfect master pieces on the sand.

    however clear is much more preferred, since almost any
    unprinted locations about the image may be clear.
