It’s time to plan your Monsoon Vacation in Jaisalmer

Photography, Rajasthan, Travel

‘Tis the time to plan your monsoon vacation to Jaisalmer ! The season to visit Jaisalmer has officially begun ! Here are some pictures I took on the Jodhpur – Jaisalmer National Highway yesterday.

Who can say these images are taken at the Thar Desert in Jaisalmer, right? But that’s the beauty of the Golden city, especially in the monsoons – you’ll find the Golden sands at Sam and Khuri Dunes and to get some relief from the barren scenery, just drive towards Jodhpur to enjoy the roads lined with lush green desert foliage and the bright blue sky. Not to miss the beautiful white cloud formations on a bright sunny monsoon day. This is exactly how your monsoon vacation in Jaisalmer will look like !

For all of you who love road trips – there cannot be a better season and there cannot be better roads ! The roads in Rajasthan are beautifully smooth and straight, something that I’ve always missed in India after our South African Road Adventure.

The weather, though is still moody and fluctuates between pleasant and humid. So keep your itinerary open and decide what to do on each day depending on the weather and the wind ! While you are in Jaisalmer, you’re sure to come across great photo ops so don’t forget to keep the batteries charged and carry your camera around at all times.
