Enroute to "Pansari Palace Tents" from Jaisalmer

Its winter and where else to enjoy it other than the colourful state of Rajasthan. Boarding the Ashram Express at Ahmedabad, I land at Ajmer Station and after spending a few days at Raj Resorts, Pushkar I travel to Umed Marvel, Jodhpur,Pokhran Fort, Pokhran and Sonaar Haveli, Jaisalmer for three days each before being picked up at Jaisalmer located 45 km. away by Anil Pansari for the 60 minute drive to "Pansari Palace Tents", at Khuri village , located 45 km. away. We encounter one of Rajasthan's high velocity desert winds the moment we land at Khuri. This reduces the temperature a little.

A hot water bath in the alkaline waters of "Pansari Palace Tents" is the therapy I need to spend two days at Khuri exploring the golden sand-dunes of Thar. This hot water bath in winter, is a rejuvenating experience for the immune system. In the evening I go for a trek through the sand-dunes of Khuri which is the ideal way to absorb the energy of the primordial elements.

Meditating amongst the sand-dunes while watching hundreds of stars twinkling in the night sky is a once in a lifetime experience, which each one of our readers must experience. Music and dance are a way of life for the residents of Khuri and after a scintillating dance performance by Kalbeliya dancers from Jodhpur and folk music of Jaisalmer and folk songs of Rajasthan, I drift off to dreamful sleep under Pansari Palace Resorts, traditional Rajasthani tents.
