Being in the close proximity of Khimsar Fort, history comes alive on a visit to the Sand Dunes. It is 6 Kms drive from historic Khimsar Fort which was built in 1523 by Rao Karamsji, 8th son of the founder of Jodhpur Rao Jodha. Twenty one generations later, a part of this fort is still residence to the Karamsot Rathor direct lineage. Get yourself pampered to the royal Rajput hospitality, personally overseen by the royal family, on a grand and elegant scale.
At the heart of this oasis of sixty acres and adjoining the lake is the WelcomHeritage Khimsar Sand Dunes Village which is a mere 6 km away from the WelcomHeritage Khimsar Fort (built in1523 by Rao Karamsji, founder of the line of Karamsot Rathors) and is accessible by jeep and camel but once you are there all that is evident to the naked eye is rolling sand dunes in every direction. The location of this remote and rural village, facing the water body, ensures total tranquility and peace with perhaps nothing but the sound of the shifting sands wafting on the desert winds, occasionally interrupted by the ducks, geese and wild birds that flock to the water body. The savage beauty of the desert is constantly before you, be it in the harshness of the day, or as the glow of sunset envelopes the entire desert in orange hues or underneath a brilliant starlit night.
