The Sam dunes are also the most picturesque spot around
Jaisalmer, and perhaps the whole of western Rajasthan. Sitting there in the evening
with the sun setting, listening to the ballads of the legendary lovers Moomal

halt. The silken smooth sands of Sam look like a tale out of the Merchant of Venice
and camel safaris are much in vogue here.
