  • Description


    My name is Jamin, I own and run a guesthouse in the small fort city of Jalsaimer. My guesthouse has 7 guest rooms, a rooftop restaurant and a basement im hoping to convert into a dormitory or bar/chill/music area.
    The guesthouse has an easy going chilled out vibe where anyone is welcome. It is a vibrant home away from home with a lovely view of the fort, great central location and close to local amenities and attractions.
    Some attractions include visits to the fort, local temples, museums and the Gadsisar Sagar Lake.
    Of course, the highlight is the incredible Thar desert where you can see vast sand dunes and go on camel treks overnight to beautiful sunset spots and woodfire cooked indian food.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travellers and volunteers here are made to feel like a true indian family. They will recieve food and accomadation. They can learn all aspects of looking after a guesthouse with the twist of desert life. Indian cooking can be shown and also the making of the infamous chai, which is regularly provided to everyone.

  • Help


    People are welcome for 1-2 weeks and if you decide to stay longer then you may. I hope for help in mornings or evenings, i am flexible on this as long as people contribute the best they can.
    The guesthouse is open to be decorated by travellers and their creative ideas. People who come to volunteer can help with general maintenance, room up keep, and hospitality.
    The guesthouse is colourful so paintings and decoration can be made so please come and be creative!
    Im also going to start a desert farm retreat. So will need volunteers for construction of buildings, planting of trees and any help or ideas for reaching my new goal.
