  • Description

    Description

    We are a small guest house in the fort of Jaisalmer, with four rooms and a rooftop . I are committed to showing travelers the beauty of our city. Our rooftop overlooks Jaisalmer lake, and the Jain temple is nestled up beside us. I have been here for eight years and would love to exchange cultures with people from all across the world. Workaway seems the perfect way to do this, don't hesitate to message me with any questions.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Being 'through the looking glass', greeting travelers and tourists and gaining an insight into what it is like living in this city, rather than traveling through. You would see the food we cook, and how. You can leave here knowing the secret to a perfect cup of chai! Also, knowing how we live here, as locals, would be something that you might not see otherwise.

    You will also come on a camel safari with us. This is an enlightening and uplifting experience, which no one should leave Jaisalmer without! You would leave with a tour arranged by us for some of the paying guests, enjoy your own camel and trek through dunes and surrounding villages. This is definitely a must-do for anyone visiting our desert city.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    We ask workawayers to help in the guesthouse for 4-5 hours a day. After that, the city is yours! There are many amazing things to do here, such as walk down the the lake (10-15 minutes away) or explore the winding streets of the fort itself. There is a sunset point a few moments away with beautiful views of the city from on high. We also get an amazing view of sunrise from our rooftop if you can manage being awake for it!

    Also you will come with us to visit the local villages. Spend some time with the village people, their families, and the farm animals. We often stay with them in order for visitors to gain a genuine understanding of the differing cultures within Rajasthan. We also visit schools, where you can see what knowledge is important to the children around Jaisalmer.
