Coming to Jaisalmer and not going on a desert safari makes your tour incomplete. So there is Sam sand dune 45 Km away from Jaisalmer city waiting for you to show its beauty. Sam has a great stretch of sweeping sand dunes with no or very little vegetation. The only thing visible around is the vast ocean of sand.
So what are you waiting for! Tie a turban around your head set on camel caravan and ride along the crest and troughs of Thar Desert. Experience the sun setting behind the horizon residing in a camp. Enjoy the rustic and earthy music and dance of Rajasthan with other tourists lighting a bonfire.
In the month of February/ March this whole place turns into a cultural hub as desert festival is organized amidst these dunes which portray the Rajasthani culture as a whole. Various activities which take place in this festival are:
- Open air cultural extravaganzas
- Puppet shows
- Folk dance performances
- Camel races
- General festivities
This annual event is held with great pomp and show at Sam Sand dunes of Jaisalmer
