This image was taken at the Sam (pronounced some) Dunes near Jaisalmer in Rajasthan. See the complete collection on Flickr.
Sam is located about 45 kilometers (28 miles) from Jaisalmer and is quite a popular destination for its sand dunes. Over two dozen camps have come up here offering hotel-style accommodation to tourists in tents and huts complete with attached baths, entertainment and meals.
What did I think of Sam? Nice place but a bit of a let-down. The dunes extend for only a short distance and are not very high. You are promised a one-hour camel safari, but the camels drop you after only 7-8 minutes for you to admire the sunset for the next hour. Bummer. I thought I had signed on for a one hour ride. But it was good fun anyway. You had entertainers to keep you amused, and locals selling soft beverages and packaged snacks to munch. WIsh someone would clear the garbage too.
Here are some more images for you to enjoy, or go to Flickr for more.
