On a bus top on our way to Sam Sand dunes some 40km from Jaisalmer. Its almost on the boarders of Thar desert. The bus was so crowded that me and my co traveller agreed to travel on bus top. Believe me, we enjoyed the that part of the journey more than anything else we had in Jaisalmer. The dust colored faces, bushy landscape, long straight stretch of the road half eaten by the sandstorm, occasional huts and villages and camel caravans.. the journey wide images were as exciting as the destination. Daytime is still chilly in those winter days of Jan 2004. I have managed a traditional head gear from Jaisalmer which I didnt know how to make, therefore kept in the same shape as it was made for months after our trip !!
Sam Sand Dunes are situated at a distance of approximately 42 km from the city of Jaisalmer. Located in the midst of the Thar Desert. Watching the sand dunes in the faint orange glow of the sun with the ballads of the legendary lovers playing in the background leaves us completely speechless. Even the desert comes alive with the sound and light show, and dance and music that re organized there.
