Thar Desert

Rajasthan, India

These 2 Jaisalmeri camels couldn't help but stop for a smooch while en route through the Thar Desert in northwestern India. Aptly nicknamed the Great Indian Desert, Thar stretches more than 7,700 square miles and is bordered by the Aravalli Mountain Range and Punjab and Indus plains. Camelback safaris have become popular among travelers, as have winter desert festivals in Rajasthan, when competitions for the best-dressed camel wow throngs of spectators.
