Welcome to Desert land 'MARU DESH' known as THAR The Great Indian Desert.
Gemar Singh and the villagers of HACRA welcome you to their home, the Thar Desert. When you stay with Gemar singh and the local community, you are treated as one of them. You are not treated like a tourist.

If you are looking for a 'home away from home' this is NOT the place for you. If you are looking to escape the mania of the cities, to understand a simple lifestyle different from your own and to experience genuine hospitality, this is the place for you.

Gemar Singh is a local desert guide whose aim is to promote innovative approaches to building sustainable livelihoods in this untouched rural area. To this aim, he and his team now offer:

* camel rides
* desert walks
* rural homestay
* nomadic way camp-out
* home-cooked Marwari cuisine
* experience of local music and handicrafts
* horse rides around Ranakpur Jain Temple



Itineraries can be tailor made to include some or all of the above activities.
Proposed itineraries are also offered *please see the links at the top of this page.

The Team's base camp: HACRA Dhani, is near the historic temple town of Osian and approximately two hours drive from Johdpur, Rajasthan, India.

At base camp one can experience local culture as camp is in close proximity of rural hamlets so called 'DHANI' and area as yet unspoiled by safari tourism unlike Jaisalmer or Bikaner.
Note: - We would like to welcome your thought, ideas and contribution to better our Genuine Rural Tourism India Project.
