Desert Hermitage – Garha – Rajasthan

April 13, 2017 10:04 am

Desert Hermitage is located 95 km from Jodhpur towards Jaisalmer. Exclusive villas & cottages. Real experience of Thar Desert.


Desert Hermitage as a concept was developed by Brig. (Retd.) Udai Singh, a recipient of Mahavir Chakra during the 1971 Indo Pak war. A vedanta scholar and disciple of yoga, he decided to settle down in his native village Garha in the Thar desert.
He wanted to provide visitors and friends an insight into the village life of the desert inhabitants. With blessings of H. H. Maharaja Gaj Singhji and other prominent friends he launched the project in 1993. Thus began its journey and soon it became famous and played host to several well known personalities from all walks of life.

Lonely Planet, the travel guide, dedicated a paragraph on this remote place. However, tragedy struck soon after. Brig. Udai Singh was diagnosed to be suffering from blood cancer in 1999. Desert Hermitage was forced to shut during its infancy.
There is a story behind the tagline' million star resort'. Once an American couple had booked this place during mid nineties. When they arrived, they were a bit perplexed by the surrounding etc. He approached them to understand their apprehension. Shaking off their embarrassment the guest asked the star classification of the place. Brig Udai Singh, had no clue about the question, and, probed deeper. The American prodded with, 2star, 3star hotel etc.

Being a wise man, Brig. Singh understood. Pointed towards the sky and said - 'a million stars' !!
In 2014, Karan Singh Bhati the son of Brig. Udai Singh, and a hospitality professional was goaded by his friends to relaunch the experience named Desert Hermitage. After a painstaking three year period of renovations and upgradations the experience is ready for relaunch.
Late Brig.(Retd.) Udai Singh, MVC


The highlight of Garha is the candle lit dinner on 200 feet high sand dunes under the star lit sky. An unforgettable experience of nature.


Add to your thrill with a camel ride or a jeep ride.


Once a major means of transport, camels, are facing extinction due to rapid mechanization of transport as well improvement in road infrastructure.


Garha offers a perfect example of a harmonious co-existence among humans, animals and birds. Deers, cows, camels, desert fox, goats, sheeps, peacocks, wild owls, partridges, parrots are among several varieties living here. The fast vanishing “ Indian Sparrow” is found in abundance here.

Today the day start early for full day excursion to Gangtey & Phobjikha Valley (3000Mts / 9845fts , 85Kms / 3 to 3½ Hrs One way ) The valley of Gangtey is one of the most beautiful spots in Bhutan. The surprise of finding such a wide, flat valley without any trees after the hard climb through dense forests is augmented by an impression of vast space, and extremely rare experience in Bhutan where most of the valley’s are tightly enclosed. A few kilometers beyond the Gangtey Monastery, on the valley floor lie’s the village of Phobjikha. This place is the winter home of black necked cranes that migrate from the arid plains in the north to pass winter in milder and lower climate. Phobjikha, at an altitude of 2900 m, falls under the district of Wangdiphodrang and lies on the periphery of the Black Mountain National Park. The valley boasts two beautiful meandering rivers, Nakay Chhu (Chhu Naap-black water) and Gay Chhu (Chhu Karp-white water). According to a local legend, the two rivers actually represent a snake and a boar. The two animals once raced each other with an agreement that if the snake (Nakay Chhu) won, Phobjikha valley would be able to grow rice, but if the boar won, then rice could never be cultivated in the area. The snake lost since it had to meander all the way during its journey. Rice cannot be cultivated in the valley even today. Black Necked Crane Information Centre , Gangtey Goempa (Monastery),Back to the hotel. Overnight at Hotel.

Athens - Mykonos - Santorini

Day 1: Athens & the Archaeological Parkway

Settle into your hotel, then go for a walk along the Archaeological Park, which runs from Syntagma Square around the Acropolis; the new Acropolis Museum; past ancient Athens's shopping and civic center, the Agora; and into the Plaka, the heart of old -- and touristy -- Athens. Do what the Athenians do and stop for cappuccino, pastries, cheese, or yogurt at Oraia Ellada, a Plaka shop with a restaurant that offers a drop-dead-gorgeous Acropolis view. Browse through the old and new Greek folk art on view before continuing your walk past, endless shops selling T-shirts, olive oil soap, and refrigerator magnets and night lights in the shape of the Parthenon. For lunch, sit under the plane tree as you enjoy roast lamb at Platanos Taverna, or grab a souvlaki at Thanasis. Feeling revived? Stop at the little Museum of Popular Greek Musical Instruments, just a few feet away. Listen to recordings of Greek music and enjoy the peaceful garden. The slumbering tortoises there may remind you it's siesta time. Go to your hotel for a nap before you head out again for a nighttime stroll back to the Acropolis (even if it's closed, it's great at night when it's usually illuminated). For dinner, if you had a big lunch, you could just have a bite at one of the many fast-food cafeterias on Syntagma Square. Point to what you want and leave your phrase book in your pocket. If you're feeling energetic and missed it at lunch, head into the Plaka to eat at one of our suggestions for old-time "authentic" tavernas above.

 Day 2: Museums & Mount Likavitos

Visit the National Archaeological Museum to see sculptures, gold, and other impressive artifacts and -- if you get there just as the doors open -- as few tour groups as possible. Then head to the Acropolis, but first grab a snack at one of the kiosks on the slopes (fresh orange juice and a cheese pie anyone?). Spend the rest of the day enjoying the sprawling National Gardens and watching elderly women feeding stray cats, courting couples, and children chasing each other along shady paths. Then have dinner at Aegli. Or ride the cable car up Mount Likavitos before walking back down for drinks in Kolonaki Square. Try dinner a short walk away at To Kafeneio, a great place to enjoy the bustle of Athens's most fashionable neighborhood.

 Day 3: Mykonos & Paradise

By plane or ship, go to Mykonos. Settle into your hotel, then take a bus to one of the beaches outside town. Paradise attracts partiers who love loud music with their sun and sand, while Ornos is a quieter beach preferred by families. There are plenty of cafes on either beach for lunch. Back in town, get lost along winding streets and ogle the window displays of jewelry, cutting-edge clothes, and sling-back shoes. Perhaps end up at Caprice in Little Venice for a dry martini and good people-watching. Before dinner, walk to Mykonos's three waterside windmills. You won't be alone, but even with a crowd, this is a great spot to take in the view back across the harbor. You'll see Little Venice's chic, chicer, and chicest bars, perched vertiginously over the sea. If you want to alternate chic with casual, try the fish at Kounelas on the harbor, where you'll vie for a table with locals -- and longtime Mykonos visitors.

 Day 4: Mykonos & Delos

Take an early boat from Mykonos to Delos. Remember to bring sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat so you can spend several hours admiring the acres of marble ruins in this ancient religious site and market. There's a snack bar by the museum, but you'll do better bringing your own food and picnicking in a patch of shade cast by the ancient monuments. When you get back to Mykonos, enjoy some shopping. Don't miss the fabulous jeweler's LALAoUNIS shop here. For dinner, sample the mezedes and grilled fish (or meat) at the Sea Satin Market, past the windmills at Kato Myli, overlooking the sea. If you want to see the sun come up, there are lots -- and lots -- of bars, cafes, and hangouts where you can spend the hours until dawn.

 Day 5: Santorini & Akrotiri

Head to Santorini next, by plane or ship. If you go by ship, you'll sail into the deep harbor with its high cliffs streaked with lava from the volcanic eruption that tore the island in half around 1450 B.C. -- this is one of the world's great travel experiences. Check into your hotel and rent a car, or sign up for a tour of the ancient site of Akrotiri, often called the "Pompeii of Greece," if it has reopened. If not, go to ancient Thira, perched on a mountaintop . Then take in the Boutari Winery, where the tour usually includes enough snacks and samples of local wines for a light lunch. In the evening, do what everyone does in Fira: Wander along the narrow streets before having drinks and dinner. For an inventive, memorable meal in a beautiful setting, make reservations at one of the best restaurants in all of Greece: Selene.

 Day 6: Ancient Thira & Kamari

Explore the island by car, tour, or the extensive local bus system. See the cliff-top site of ancient Thira before heading down to the famous black-sand beach at Kamari for a swim and lunch at Camille Stefani taverna. Back in Fira, see the reproductions of the beautiful Minoan wall paintings of Akrotiri in the Thira Foundation. In the evening, while tour buses take hordes of tourists to see the sunset at Oia, head to the village of Imerovigli and watch the sunset over a medieval fortress. Then, head on to Oia and try Katina's an excellent fish place in Ammoudi, Oia's minuscule port.

 Day 7: Athens.

Return early by plane or hydrofoil to Athens.
