I went on a trip to Jaisalmer in the month of November with a group of 5 friends. We reached Jaisalmer Railway Station in the morning. We had booked a Full Day Desert Safari Tour Package from the Real Desert Man Safari Jaisalmer. It was our best and smart decision to book a package online. The company cab came to pick us on the Railway Station. It had saved our time in hiring a cab and guide.jaisalmer tour packages

Our tour started here. Our guide was giving us information about the history of Jaisalmer and its majestic architecture. We reached Kuldhara Village which is an abandoned site. We could see very few people around us. People were in their traditional dress, probably it was Rajasthani dress. Women wearing ghaghra and silver ornaments, men wearing dhoti and turban. We loved clicking few pictures with them.
