When in the desert, there's nothing quite as memorable as a camel ride as you journey over the dunes. This safari out at the Thar Desert starts from Jodphur, and a two hour drive out to Osian. Your first stop out at the desert is to see the locally guided tour of the Sachiya Mata Temple. This elaborate temple complex is where the mother goddess Sachiya is revered and worshipped by the locals. It's an eye-opening tour into the history and local culture of Jodhpur and its surrounding region. After the tour here, your camel ride begins. Over the sandy dunes and the winds of the desert, you'll feel like a real desert traveler as you bounce along with your camel, heading up to where you can get a splendid view of the setting sun as it sinks below the horizon. Then it's time for a traditional dinner out at the desert, where you'll enjoy a great look into local desert culture, and even chat with the locals. Afterwards, you will head back to Jodhpur, and be dropped off safely back at your hotel.
