Description

Jaisalmer Tourism should be on your list if you are looking for places to travel with rich cultural and historical vibe, hearty and cheerful people and unforgettable trip experience. Jaisalmer road trip covers a total of six Rajasthani cities namely Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Sam, Kuldhara, Ajmer, and  Pushkar. 

3 days of unlimited fun with people from all over while traversing on the roads of Jaisalmer, Rajasthan is what makes this road trip irresistible and hard to ignore.  Jaisalmer’s climate or Jaisalmer’s weather which makes you experience hot and cold all at the same time, as to day’s being hot and night’s being cooler, also adds up to a unique experience.

Jaisalmer is also known as the golden city and the name justifies the places perfectly. The reason for it being called ‘Golden city’ is the yellowish vibes of the places that we come across while we are traveling in the desert or inside a fort or any such activity during our stay at Jaisalmer.

There are a ton of places to visit in Jaisalmer such as Jaisalmer Fort, Patwon ki Haveli Patwa Haveli, Gadisar Lake, Salman Singh ki Haveli, and much more. The best time to visit Jaisalmer is during the months of November to March when the winter season hits up the city and you can feel a cool vibe throughout the desert influenced area.

The reasons you need to go on the Jaisalmer road trip in 2019 are far more than many but if you still got doubts then let us clear them up while you are on a Road trip to Jaisalmer with Justwravel.
