Nice travelogue.
I had been to Jaisalmer on official trip way back in 2013.
But luckily got some holidays in between. So was able to cover sam sand dunes, camel safari. I missed the border though.
You should have visited the fort. Even though its rush, its worth spending time for the architecture and antique war pieces.

Yes. But we were short of time and it was too crowded. Anyway, something for the next visit

Your trip is reminiscent of the road trip I did it in Dec 2018 with my family! Jaisalmar is very beautiful place for family visit. Food & place is perfect getaway from city hustle bustle Off course roads are beautiful and you won't get bored of driving in such roads. There are stretches while coming from Ahmedabad towards Jaisalmer where you literally wanted roads not to end. Beautiful scenery and well laid out roads - a driver's delight.

Visit to Longewala and BP609 was awesome with excellent roads as cherries on the cake. Attaching my road trip route. Added good 6500 kms to my odo.

Last but not the least my car never shied away giving its selfies 320d is the most photogenic car

Nice travelogue. I was also in Jaisalmer during the vacation. 23rd & 24th December to be precise. The roads and scenery are just amazing and should b on every driving enthusiast's list.

Did you happen to encounter a herd of Tata Hexa cars during your trip to Jaisalmer? I was part of the annual Hexa owners meet-up which we had planned from 24-27th December. We were about 40 of us.
Hey. I spotted the convoy. We reached the Tanot Mata Temple around the same time on 24th Dec and spotted the gang there. But I guess you didn't take the Tanot-Longewala route since I observed the convoy headed back to Jaisalmer direction from the temple.

Yes, we did Longewala first, then Tanot Maata.

I found this on their website: +919587465564

I seem to have lost the number from my phonebook.
