We choose less traveled routes to give you a real taste of the solitude of the desert.

Finally you will reach a stop to watch an unforgettable sunset from the dunes. As the sun sets, the sky and sands change colours to create one brilliant spectacle creating a golden sea beneath you. The air becomes chillier and it seems as if the whole desert is preparing for the night. Sipping hot chai take some time to fully appreciate this beautiful performance.
