Typical of the entire region, the havelis of Mandawa are adorned with gaily painted murals that illuminate the arid landscape. Mandawa, a remote feudal principality was a trading outpost on an ancient caravan route to China and Middle East. It was the strong hold of Rao Shekha, who founded a dynasty here.
Camel safari programmes (1-4 days) organized by private excursion agents in Jaisalmer provide an opportunity to experience the charms of inaccessible desert interiors and see village life. Mainly organized during the high season (OctoberFebruary), the prices vary from Rs. 1000Rs. 5000 per night depending on the facilities provided. The cost normally includes tents, mattresses, blankets, meals and jeep support. Camping out at night is great fun. The traditional route taken is Amar Bagh, Lodurva, Mool Sagar, and Bada Bagh to Sam through the small villages along the way.
If you have 3 days, I would strongly suggest you visit nearby areas first which are as amazing as Udaipur.
