The city of Jaisalmer is known as the golden city of India because of the grand golden fort that is located at the center of the city. It is a gateway to the Great Indian Desert and is visited by thousands of tourists from different parts of the country. The golden fort is a must visit in Jaisalmer. When the sun rays fall on the fort, it looks dazzling as if it is made from gold. That is why it is named as the Golden Fort. In colloquial language, it is also known as the Sonar Quilla.

The Sam sand dune is yet another major tourist attraction of Jaisalmer. There are several desert camps next to the Sam sand dunes. You can stay put at one of them as per your preference and budget and explore the desert on a camel safari or a jeep safari. The sunset and the sunrise are some of the best times to visit the desert as the feel and the look of the desert at those times are surreal. Cost of desert safari at Jaisalmer for two is INR 1250.

I would suggest Dangri desert safari camp as cost of desert camps in jaisalmer for two in this camp is around INR 4000. Plus you can also check Jaisalmer Desert Tent where cost for desert tents in jaisalmer for two comes to INR 4500. Have a look at sites like Tripadvisor and Booking.com for rates and availability.
