Sam Sand Dunes in Jaisalmer is an offbeat natural tourist destination in Rajasthan right in the middle of the Thar Desert. Right in the middle of the historical forts and colourful markets, Sam Sand Dunes are among the best and most authentic in the country, some rising as tall as 30-60 metres tall. Lying around 40-42 kilometres from the golden city of Jaisalmer, the dunes are located over calm and undulating stretches of golden yellow sand stretching for around 2 kilometres along the borders of the Jaisalmer Desert National Park. Travellers often come here to witness the dramatic and sunrise and sunsets. You can also gain a close insight into the culture and tradition of Rajasthan with dances and musicals that are staged around the campfires at night.
If you have some time, do camp in the desert with the locals! There is a tradition of crackling up a bonfire with your fellow tourists and enjoying the festivities the evening brings in the campsites. In short, a visit to the Sam Sand Dunes is a once in a lifetime experience, with its uncovered and unadorned natural beauty and the true culture of the state in its unabridged authenticity.
