“Travelling: it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” These wise words by Ibn Battuta states how beautiful an experience travelling is and here, in our blog we have tried to pen down the spellbinding experience we had in Rajasthan.

Our quest began with the heavenly views of the pink city, Jaipur followed by Jodhpur and finally leading us to the golden city of Jaisalmer and the Great Indian Desert, the Thar. It was an awe to visit Rajasthan and visit these places.

Our journey began with the abandoned village of Kuldhara. It is nearly 15 Kms away from the city of Jaisalmer. The story behind it, as explained by our journey mentors was mind boggling apart from being highly mysterious.

The best attraction was the mighty Thar. Our approach got set with a Jeep Safari leading us to the depths of the sandy lands in the small village of Sam, where we were greeted with traditional dance and music followed by some fun times.  However, amidst all the amusement, we experienced something so breathtaking that scribbling it down may get difficult. A sky full of stars and every gleam of it was worth a lifetime. The constellations and the Milky Way, everything was so enchanting that the experience automatically gained a permanent spot in our psyche.

The next day was no less, following our stunning mentors, we were lead to the artistically created architecture of interlocked stones, the Patwaon Ki Haveli. Being famous for its structure and traditional architecture, there was a cluster of five magnificent Havelis. We were lucky enough to experience the intricate artwork personally.


The next stop of the day was the Sonar Qila or the famous Jaisalmer Fort. It is known as the world’s largest desert fort made entirely out of yellow sandstones. As history suggests, it is the only fort with residents dating back to generations.

Summing it up, our overall experience was a marvel to go through and being a part of an amazingly cooperative group. The guidance of a few highly experienced and affectionate journey mentors were the greatest rewards of this indelible journey organised by Edterra Edventures.
