After spending a handful of days in Jaisalmer with our Intrepid Group during our month of travel India, we put together this post that includes all our best recommendations for things to do near the Jaisalmer Fort area! Scroll to the bottom to see our complete list of the best things to do near the Jaisalmer Fort - we recommend spending at least 3 to 4 days here - especially if you plan to spend a night in the desert! Check out the beginning of this post for recommendations on places to stay and eat in Jaisalmer!
Where to Stay
Finding a place to stay in India can be difficult, especially with the onslaught of fake reviews and photos. Personally, we stayed at the Deepak Hotel, which was located in the walls of the fort and had a stunning rooftop overlooking the edge of the fort. We would highly recommend this lodging option, and according to our guide the Nachna Haveli that overlooks the house of the Royal Family is nice as well. If you're unable to book either of these we would highly recommend beginning by looking for a place inside the fort.
Places to Eat
Let's begin by saying there are SO MANY great places to eat around the Jaisalmer Fort! We've gathered our favorites below, but as long as you follow some simple rules (like not having tap ice or water and making sure it's a busy place that has food turnover rather than food just sitting out all day) then you should be fine for the most part! Read on for our list of our favorite places to eat in Jaisalmer!
