So final words are life is too tough and big fight no rain no water no jobs no mercy it only look very beautiful from far from nearly it's a hard truth and merciless desert....

  • The Thar Desert, also known as the Great Indian Desert, is a large arid region in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent that covers an area of 200,000 km² and forms a natural boundary between India and Pakistan. Beautiful but quite dangerous.

  • Nature at its best. Awesome view with jeep safari is a relish. Sunset and camel ride are just spectacular. Best to visit from November to March.

  • That desert also known as great Indian desert.U can visit it in Rajasthan India. It is a mervolus place a sand area which we can ride in a Jeep and on camel.

  • Amazing place, you can experience what desert, heat , sand storm is all about Always go for Jeep safari if yo are going there Late night star counting is real experience but not far from the camp.
