Located on the outskirts of Jaisalmer, the quaint village of Khuri is surrounded by pristine sand dunes. A camel ride in Khuri will take you across undulating sand dunes at a leisurely pace that will let you experience the bare yet beautiful landscape of the Thar desert. The relatively unexplored sand dunes hold a great appeal for tourists who are looking for an escape from the bustling tourist circuit. As the golden rays of the sun and the unique wind patterns dance in unison at sunset and sunrise to create a light and shadow play of epic proportions, one feels the pull of the simple and uncomplicated life of the region. The nearby village has a smattering of mud huts and a local bazaar where visitors can absorb the traditional Rajasthani way of life. The many resort operators offer a night's stay in beautifully prepared luxury-tents, complete with breathtaking performances by local artists. Due to its distant location, Khuri enjoys seclusion and makes the best use of the undisturbed environs with the occasional campfire night, that allows guests to unwind with home-cooked meals that are traditionally prepared for a complete desert experience.


A stone's throw away lie the sand dunes of Sam, which have been widely accepted as one of the most popular excursions from the city. The place acquires something of a carnival atmosphere from late afternoon till the next morning, making it somewhere to avoid if you're after a solitary desert experience.
