Experience of sand dune bashing on a 4*4 SUV: The experience of driving on a powerful SUV on sand dunes that move and fly as the wind whistles through them is almost like moving on a cruise boat across choppy waves. The windows are tightly closed during the sand dune bashing as the fine sand flies all over the vehicle and almost feels like large waves of water dashing against the glass. The sensation of sliding down a sand dune at breakneck speed sometimes makes tourists scream out in excitement as it feels like a rollercoaster. Experience of sand dune exploration on a camel: As the tour includes one night at the campsite with dance and music shows to absorb the true essence of Rajasthan, tourists sometimes take camel rides across the dunes for a romantic experience if there is a moonlit night.
Camel tours to the sand dunes are also conducted just after sunrise and before sunset to explore the photogenic sight of the majestic sun and setting behind the dunes and avoid the heat. The slow rambling walk of the camels across the sand with their slouching gait will make you feel as if you are bobbing along on a lone boat during the tour. Travel during mid-afternoon under the desert sun is harmful so both humans and animals rest during this period.In the evening when the sun is down and there is a campfire with swirling dancers and music playing in the background one almost feels like decadent royalty at the end of Jaisalmer dune bashing tour.
