Khuri Sand Dunes

Watch spectacular sunsets, enjoy Rajasthani dance performances and ride a camel across sprawling sand dunes to experience the solitude of the Thar Desert.

Discover the tranquility, isolation and rural life of a sprawling desert at Khuri Sand Dunes. Admire a never-ending landscape of rolling dunes spectacularly lit up by a combination of sunlight, moonlight and brightly shining stars. Join camel safaris, visit desert communities, watch cultural dance shows and sample Rajasthani cuisine.

A great way to explore the sand dunes is as part of a camel safari or caravan. Sit atop a colorfully dressed camel and travel in convoy over the ever-shifting dunes. Set off early in the morning to watch as the sun casts a magical glow over the desert and signals the dawn of a new day. Marvel as the position of the sun creates a constantly changing landscape. Ride to spectacular sunset viewpoints and witness the amazing transformation as the sky turns into a sea of stars.

During a safari you’ll get the chance to visit communities and get a sense of the residents’ remote lifestyle. Watch for desert birdlife, including the great Indian bustard and demoiselle crane. Stay overnight at tented camps or sleep on a blanket beneath the stars. Be sure to try spicy Rajasthani curries cooked on open fires. Enjoy the chance to watch cultural performances such as traditional Kalbeliya song and dance.

The dunes sit close to the village of Khuri, which is about a 1-hour drive from Jaisalmer. Combine your tour of the dunes with a visit to Khuri. Wander around the village’s zigzagging lanes, check out the mud-thatched houses and shop for fabrics, handicrafts, jewelry and saris.

Khuri Sand Dunes are accessible year-round. However, expect extreme heat during the summer months. November to February presents almost idyllic weather conditions, with mild days and cool evenings. No experience is necessary to ride a camel. Travel agents and touts are famous for being pushy, so shop around for the best value before committing to a tour.
