Ragasthan, unique yet somewhat mercurial is Asia’s first desert camping festival in Desert Camp rooted in the expansive dunes of the Thar desert in Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. In its third edition from February 17 to 19th, 2019, Ragasthan shifts gears and dares you to be you, to do what you love and love what you do. Eclectic music, culture, tradition, collective participation and shared experiences with Royal Camp in Jaisalmer make for the focal point of the festival bringing together life enthusiasts from the remotest corners of India to those spread across the world. A 360-degree scenic view of the horizon, spread out over the towering dunes of inner Thar, Ragasthan stretches a little over a square Kilometre in Jaisalmer Camps and if rolling down 150 feet high dunes isn’t enough, there is more to enthral even the most subdued. Over 50 artists, one artists’ village, a sociable camping space, a dozen film screenings under the open sky, bars and restaurants, art installations, morning yoga sessions and football on the softest playground have weaved their way into the itinerary paving way for uninhibited bliss.
This year’s venue is the beautiful Lakhmana Dunes where we will be hosted by Desert Dream Royal Camp. About a 40-minute drive from Jaisalmer town the venue is on the same route to Sam Sand Dunes.
FLY: You can fly to Jaisalmer now directly from Delhi or Jaipur. There’s no direct flight from any other city. Jodhpur is the closes airport other than Jaisalmer so alternately you could fly to Jodhpur and either cab it from there or there’s plenty of public transport.
ROAD OR RAIL: However, if you choose to drive, the roads are beautiful all the way to the festival in the dusty Royal Desert Camp in Jaisalmer. Trains are frequent from Calcutta to Uttarakhand as well as the south of India.
