So, we take you to the Camel Breeding Farm in the city where you can see the camels graze and spot a herd of camels returning to their resting places while the Sun quietly sets in the background.
Day 05: Bikaner - Jaisalmer
After a night's rest and a delicious breakfast at Bikaner, we travel to Jaisalmer. The sandstone walls, beautiful havelis and lack of modernisation in terms of architecture make this city picturesque.

Gorgeous frescoes on the walls of these havelis make them stunning showpieces for every visitor. As the evening comes near, we take a camel ride to the sand dunes and visit the Sun Set point. After seeing the desert sand glitter and then dark, we return to the hotel and prepare for an early start.
