Visit Kuldhara

You must have known or even just heard about this place. Located on the outskirts of the central city, Kuldhara is the ruins of the abandoned village. For years this place has captured the mind of numerous travellers. In the 1800s, this village was a bustling town. However, after some unfathomable tragedy, the city was abandoned overnight.

Visit Pokhran

At the heart of the Thar desert lies the heritage city of Pokhran. It is about 110 km east of Jaisalmer. This literal translation is a palace of five mirages and is bound by five big salt rocks.
