About Sam Sand Dunes

One of the most popular excursions, 41 Km west of Jaisalmer, is Sam Sand Dunes. Your trip to Jaisalmer would be incomplete if you would think of skipping this exciting spot. It gives you the best sunrise and sunset views that the Thar Desert can offer. And, if desert safari is on your to-do list, then a visit to this attraction becomes inevitable. The band of dunes spread across 2 Km here and is inarguably the most picturesque and verdant scene you would ever come across. Don't forget to carry your camera while visiting this tourist spot as you will find ample photography opportunities. Camel rides, jeep safari and overnight camping with bonfire are some of the thrilling activities to indulge in at this place. Post afternoon, you see a carnival-like atmosphere here.

Pro Tip: Negotiate with camel owners beforehand. They may ask for higher prices than the ride is worth.
