RJ-4: Jaisalmer-Damodra- Khaba Fort- Khuri- Munabao- Gadra Road – Barmer- Jodhpur/ Jaisalmer

Wake up to captivating sunrises over a vast undulating landscape. End your day on the untouched, unspoilt sand dunes painted golden by the setting sun. After a scrumptious dinner from the kitchen of Taurus, retire for the night under the blanket of a billion stars. Nothing else. Just you and the serene tranquility around you.

In between, visit the ancient temples and ruins, ghost towns and the real villages of Rajasthan, away from the tourist glare. This is the Rajasthan hinterland where tourists do not dare to venture. Drive along Mars like landscapes and pay a visit to India’s remote border post.

This one of its kind desert exploration tour to the far corners of Rajasthan will give you a magical experience possible only onboard the Taurus.
