Jaisalmer


Jaisalmer is in the Thar Desert, near both the Pakistan border and the site of the recent Indian Nuclear test.

We came here mostly for the chance to go on a camel safari - the comfort factor of these beasts was a matter of considerable dispute. (Personally, I'd rather ride a saddle-less 'bike down a cobbled road than get on one of them again !)

The "Guesthouse" that we stayed in was inside, and part of, the fort itself - an old sandstone building on the parapets - great view....
