Sam Sand Dunes

Located around 40 km from the city of Jaisalmer, the Sam Sand Dunes reflect the actual image of Rajasthan. Therefore, Jaisalmer's tour feels incomplete if one does not opt for a desert safari to these golden dunes. Undeniably one of the most picturesque spots in the desert, the Sam Sand Dunes have gained a tremendous tourist reputation over time.

Best suited for enjoying dawn or dusk, the dunes are mostly explored via camel safaris. Tourists stay in desert camps deep in the heart of the Thar Desert during the safari. With a bonfire in the dark of the night, followed by rustic and earthy Rajasthani music in the background, these dunes feel a lot like romantic solitude.

To enjoy a cultural extravaganza in the middle of the desert, it is highly advised that one must plan a trip to Sam Sand Dunes in February and March. During this time, a desert festival is organized amidst the dunes, which turns the place into an enormous cultural hub.
