... provides a 360 degree view of the entire fort area and is directly on top of the magnificent JAIN temple.
The fort itself looks like a huge sandcastle rising out of the plains. There are 99 bastions encircling the fort and to walk the entire walls is 5 km. Inside the fort are many havelis and guesthouses within the twisting lanes. Due to the serious issue of water erosion on the fort itself UNESCO is discouraging ...
... a few days on the back of a camel, we opted for an afternoon sightseeing tour of the area by jeep, which included a 1.5 hour camel ride through the sand dunes, with a campfire dinner under the stars on the sand.

Millions of stars lit the sky from horizon to glorious horizon, as far as the eye could see. It was a real sense of isolation. You can normally expect to be surrounded by other groups of tourists doing exactly the same thing. Even from the top of the highest sand dune we could not see another camp ...
