1. Desert – The Most Talked Part of Rajasthan
So, as obvioulsy most of the people knows Rajasthan to be a city covered with sand. That makes me talk on the Desert part in the beginning.
No doubt a good chunk of Thar desert lies in Rajasthan, cities like Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bikaner and Barmer are the most famous among them.

4. Salt Lake – Kutch of Rajasthan
Rajasthan proudly houses one of the biggest salt lake of India, Sambhar Lake.
It comes under Jaipur and is somewhere around 80 Kms from the main city.
After reaching Sambhar, you need to head towards Shakhambari Mata Temple which is about 15 kms from there.
The Vast Land of White Desert is what you encounter as far as you can see with mountains in the backdrop at some places.
If you are really into exploring Rajasthan, spend a night in the cold white desert of Sambhar under the smiling stars and you won’t regret the decision.
Make sure you don’t go there on a full moon, because then the Moon will steal the show and stars will hide under its bright light.
There are no hotels or guest house till now [ Dec, 2018 ]. Make sure you go there in car or have your own tent and food.
