Charming red stone havelis (mansions) stand in the old part of this walled city and a leisurely lifestyle still prevails in this sublimely picturesque place surrounded by harsh desert. The city is distinguished for the best riding camels in the world and hence boasts of having one of the largest Camel breeding farm in the world.

Rest of the day free for relaxing. 

Overnight at Fort Rajwada 4*, Jaisalmer  

To come upon Jaisalmer is to believe you have stumbled into the 16th century. Its fort rises out of the desert as if sculpted in honey, an impossibly romantic vision of turrets, towers and battlements. Inside its walls, the fort presents a wonderfully higgledy-piggledy labyrinth of streets, alleyways and courtyards, of temples and palaces.
