Short Description

This epic Relief RIde will have us start from Pokaran Fort, the 14th century citadel built on cross roads of the Silk Road, and will have us return to the breathtaking dune landscapes of the Nagaur region of northwestern Rajasthan.

Our Relief Ride starts from the beautiful, historic village of Pokaran, an ancient oasis for traders traveling by camel along the routes of central Asia and the coast of Gujarat. Our Relief Ride provides us the opportunity to travel through these remote, stunning landscapes inhabited for centuries by the Bishnoi tribes.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
