Thar desert at its best in Sam Sand dunes – Rajasthan bike trip – 4

We had just left the lonely village of Kuldhara. Our next destination was Sam Sand dunes. Babaji of Kuldhara suggested us to visit Khuri Sand dunes instead of Sam. Khuri was another 45 Km from Kuldhara but in the opposite direction to Sam. Standing on the T-road we were thinking if we should go to Khuri dunes or shall we stick to our plan. Considering the route ahead and the time we had we could not afford Khuri although we wanted to see it badly. From Kuldhara, the distance of Sam Sand dunes was not more than 35 km. Sun was shining high but clean Tar road made the journey comfortable.

Fueled it and started towards Kuldhara. The distance between Kuldhara and Jaisalmer is nearly 18 km. The landscape changed in around 15 minutes, we were out of the Jaisalmer city. Splendid roads and views greeted us. Road was smooth featuring newly laid tar. Vehicles movement was next to nothing. Took the left turn after 14 Km and rode another 4 Km on the single lane road for Kuldhara entrance. Please take care while riding on this 4 km road stretch. You can encounter sand stretch on the road. And mind it, it comes as a surprise. In case you are caught, do not brake front wheel. Press rear brakes. And …
