Thar Desert

Life in the small desert villages – or dhani – of Rajasthan is simple as resources are limited amid the dunes. The peasant farmers who will be your hosts in Hacra grow crops such as millet, lentils, sesame, moong bean and guar, as well as keeping goats, sheep and camels, and are justifiably proud of their traditions and culture. Eleven members, including two women, form a Village Committee and organise the hospitality for your stay; neighbouring villages share in the benefits of the income generated from visitors by providing other services, such as camel safaris and guiding.

Village life

Hacra is a community of shoemakers, craftsmen, weavers and farming families. As you explore, you may encounter men repairing camel saddles or farmers harvesting water melons.
