Most of the popular options like ZoomCar don't operate in Jaisalmer and the hotel I booked into hasn't got a clue. Any pointers?
As a foreigner (English), with a self-drive hire car (4x4), can I drive to Tanot from Jaisalmer? Do I need a permit? If so, where do I get one and what does it cost?
In November I will be finalizing the Jaisalmer trip to Delhi and would like to know if any of you know a transfer (car or van) to do this Jai-Del trip, since there is only train once a week and Jaisalmer has no airport.
Thank you very much

We want a real camp in the desert, i read many camps actually near to the city so that i want to avoid, somewhere quiet and star gazing is our main objective here.

Hi all !
I need to travel between Jodhpur to Jaisalmer next month (on a Friday) but I want an alternative means of transport to trains. The reason being, basically, that we will arrive in Jodhpur Airport at 2 pm in the afternoon and the next available train from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer is only at 11.45pm, which is almost 10 hours later!!! And thus, it means that with train transport we only arrive in Jaisalmer the following day at around 6am!! So we would like to know of an alternative means of transport so that we travel to and actually arrive in Jaisalmer much earlier than the train option.
So can somebody please tell me, what are the best options that I have? Are there any good bus/coach or taxi services which frequently travel from Jodhpur to Jaiselmar? If yes I appreciate, if you can indicate the travel times (maybe you can provide a link) the duration of travel needed between these two cities, the price for this trip and from which area in Jodhpur we must go to, to take this means of transport? And finally, is there a possibility to take any of these services, from Jodhpur airport straight to Jaiselmar City?
Thanks a lot and I look forward for your replies, and looking also forward for my first time experience to visit incredible India!

I visited Kuldhara few days back, and was very curious to know more about Kuldhara and reasons of migeration of people from 84 villages overnight. I have another reason of my curiosity which is that, same story run in our family that our ancestors migerated from Jaiselmer.
I would like to know since you have mentioned the migeration date was Raksh Bandhan day, how did you happen to inferenced that ?
It is co incidental that today is again a Raksh Bandhan, and I happen to visit your blog the same day.
I have read wonderful reviews about this hotel.
Can someone tell me the room tarrif? Is it inclusive of food?
Me and a friend will be driving from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer - so will arrive in Jaisalmer around 2pm. Plan to visit the Jaisalmer fort and Gadisisar Lake that afternoon. The next day do the Patwon Ki Haveli and the desert safari in the evening (sunset). And the next morning get our driver to take us from Jaisalmer to Pushkar. Is this possible?
I read that most desert safari's are for 2 days and 1 night. But we only want to do one day and one night.
How do we go about booking this? And what time would they pick us up for the desert safari. We don't really want to do a whole day on the dunes. Say a few hours, see the sunset, have food, sleep and come back the next morning. Is this possible?
How much for a camel safari for 2 nights ?
