Huddle and cuddle together around a huge campfire at night and witness the singing and dancing prowess of the local folk artists. What you’ll see is Rajasthan’s rich cultural heritage reflected in their graceful show of talent. It’s an unforgettable treat to watch them live under the roof of twinkling stars. While all this magic unfolds, you’ll be relishing the flavours of authentic Rajasthani cuisine and each other’s company.
Nights in the desert leave you enchanted. What can be more romantic than dreamily gazing at the dark blanket of the sky lit with millions of twinkling stars! Since there’s no pollution, you can view the stunning constellations and pathway of the Milky Way. If you stay out a little longer and are lucky enough, you may even spot some shooting stars. And when that happens, quickly make a wish on them, in true Shahrukh-Kajol style.
A desert experience is incomplete without a camel safari. So choose what best suits you from the short day trips or overnight stay or longer customized schedules. Ride on the graceful ‘ships of the desert’ and enjoy the infinite view of the gleaming sands. As these safaris are organised at pristine and private dunes, the tourist chaos is far less. You’ll love the quiet time together. During the safari, the local camel guides regale you with information on the flora and fauna of the Thar Desert, Rajasthan’s culture and stories from the life of its people. Of course, the sight of the sun setting over the golden dunes far into the horizon is incomparable. Don’t miss out on this one, all you lovebirds. If you wish for another kind of safari, you can go for either the Jeep Safari, Thar Desert Village Safari or Desert Wildlife Safari.
It’s as exciting as it sounds! What an amazing feeling it is to run up the dunes and surf your way down. The desert sand is just ideal to make the wave as well as the cushion for your landing. You don’t need any prior experience to go sandboarding. Just the spirit. And maybe, a little nudge from your partner.
