ITINERARY IN DETAIL

 Day 1: Arrive at Tanot

Taurus anchored near Tanot, surrounded by untouched sand dunes

Taurus and its crew will warmly welcome you at Jaisalmer and together ,we drive to Tanot which is around two hours of a beautiful vast open expanse of undulating landscape. On arrival at Tanot, we visit the famous Tanot Mata Temple. After seeking blessings from the Goddess of the Charan community, we drive to Longewala, the famous battlefield of India, which is just around 40 kms from the temple. It’s again memorable drive through sand dunes and sand mountains along the Indo-Pak border.

It’s a treat to spend a night on board TAURUS in a location like this. On a moonless night, you witness a dazzling star show in sky and if it’s a moonlit night, it’ll be the most beautiful you may have ever seen. Though it’ll be an experience that can’t be described in words, it  will certainly make you a celebrity story teller along with the priceless photos

Day 2: Move to Khuri

Camel Ride on Sand Dunes

Our morning tea tradition is like a spa for the soul in such a locations. While the knife is dancing on chop-board in the most elaborate field kitchen of Taurus to roll out your favourite breakfast, you can soak yourself in the untouched sand-dunes and visit the nearby Rajasthani village with mud houses.

After a leisurely breakfast, Taurus will steer to Khaba Fort for the evening tea, with a stopover to relish a typical Rajasthani highway lunch and then drive to Khuri, a village famous with the tourists that offers a sneak peep into the rural Rajasthan.

On arrival at Khuri, ride the camels to witness an out of the world sunset over the dunes.

Khaba Fort

Night stay onboard Taurus at Khuri.

Day 3: A journey back home!
