The great Thar Desert is found in India's north western state of Rajashtan. It's a huge expanse covering 44.6 million hectares, and is believed to be between 4000 to 10,000 years old. A little over three quarters of it lies in India, while the remainder is in neighboring Pakistan.

The Thar Desert is a fascinating place full of folklore and village life. One of the best ways of experiencing the desert is on camel safari from Jaisalmer or Bikaner.
