Camel safari,Jaisalmer


In the Thar Desert, in the northwest India, in a place where color of the Indian cities meets the calm and hilly shape of the desert sands, the camels are moving. They do so for centuries. Their bosses have carried the goods along the Silk Road, have fed teeming populations, have walked over sands that bind cities, leaving behind the marks of the deep steps into a world of mystery and fantasy. The desert road is still crossed by many travelers and locals, making the Thar the most populous of the desert areas of the world, and camels roam through it with the lassitude of a rhythmic movement that soothes and charms as if an unseen force is imposing movement onto their long legs. Finding the correct balance on top of one of these animals is an exercise of calm and character. Should we learn to follow the dance of its body and soon we will be able to feel the hot desert wind wrapping around our hair and ahead of us, we will just see the slow scrolling the sandy path leading to the horizon. This is the true magic of the desert.
