Oasis At Khimsar

Dune Extravaganza

Perched right on the edge of the seemingly endless expanse of the Thar Desert is a tiny surprise package called Khimsar. Think of sand dunes and one immediately thinks of Jaisalmer, but here’s a little hamlet that will take your breath away with its grandiose fortresses and sand dune-swathed landscape. Camel safaris, dinner on the dunes, hospitality in a traditional hut, traditional royal Rajasthani cuisine — this is your chance to live Rajasthan’s rural experience firsthand. What makes Khimsar even more special is its centerpiece — a water body that makes it an oasis in the desert. As you take in the eerily barren yet historically alive spirit of Khimsar, the town’s main fort continues to stand tall as a testament to the many battles it would have witnessed, centuries ago.
