Jaisalmer Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Regarding the trips that last for several days: it seems fun to take a camel-ride but when you haven’t ridden a camel before, you don’t want to find out on the second day (with still a whole day to come) that you’re bum and other muscles (you didn’t even know you had) are aching like hell. Find out for yourself.
A good time to visit Jaisalmer is in January or February. This is the time when the colourful annual desert festival takes place. Camel races, performances of folk dances and even a Mr. Desert contest are the main attractions. Besides that, Jaisalmer is a nice town with some interesting sights, such as the Jaisalmer Fort, the Jain temples, the Gadsisar Lake and the Manek Chowk, where you can relax and take a trip by bus to glimpse at the Sam Sand Dunes (when you don’t feel like doing it on a camel).
