A pretty rain water lake with numerous beautiful holy places around is now a halcyon spot for outings. It is now one of the primary tourist beauties of the region.

Kuldhara a place people have given it many names: Desert village, Evil Village, Haunted Village etc… But believe me, no one is true. The story goes somewhat like this: Kuldhara was the huge village in a group consists of total 84 villages. It was built by Paliwal Brahmins in 1291. These Brahmins were known to the outside world for their business awareness and agriculture knowledge. Promptly, in the 18th century, all the people of this village vanish in the dark. Why?? After living here for almost 7 centuries, why suddenly they all left. The king of the ruling kingdom saw the young daughter of the village leader and decided to marry him. But since due to caste system they don’t want this marriage to occur. But they knew the objective of the king that if they will not allow then he will take away their daughter strong-willed and will marry him. So for pride and glory, they all met one night and marked to leave the village in the dark of the night. Nobody knows where they all went and from that day forth people started calling this village by different names.


It’s a must do the trek. It will be a lifetime event to see the red sun mingle with the golden sands far into the skyline. No money or no comfort can override sleeping under the stars. Get free from your boring life and bring yourself, amidst the barren sand dunes. Give the holiday and drive of adventure camping in Rajasthan and confront the Thar from a completely different perspective.
