Jaisalmer - The Golden City

Jaisalmer is a small city which is easy to explore on foot. Tourists can walk the alleyways inside the 850 year old fort and explore the ancient architecture, Jain temples, artisan shops, and restaurants. The staff of the Surja hotel is here to help you enjoy your stay in the Golden City. We offer many activities to help you learn about local history, culture and the surrounding desert. Many of these activities we offer free. Please stop by our rooftop lounge or email us to make arrangements for individuals or groups.


Desert Safari


The Thar Desert is a vast landscape of dunes, villages, ghost towns, and wildlife. Our expert guide Raj has over 10 years of experience helping visitors to have exciting adventures. Our most popular trip is a 2 day 1 night Camel Safari which will let you experience life in the desert with a camel caravan and sleep on the sand dunes under the stars. If camel rides are not your cup of tea then we also have Jeep Safaris available. All meals, drinks, and sleeping gear are provided with each trip.
