Thar, or the Great Indian Desert, occupies the western and the north western regions of Rajasthan and proceeds further west into the mainlands of Pakistan. Apart from these two places, Thar lies stretched out in three more states of India, which are Gujarat, Punjab and Haryana. If there is any such place as a true desert, in India, it is in Rajasthan. Thar constitutes one of the five major physical divisions of India, the other four being Great Himalayas, Northern Plains, Central Plateau and the Coastal Plains (Eastern Coastal Plains and Western Coastal Plains). The physiography reveals a large area to be comprised of sands and interspersed at many places by low lying rocky hills.

Tourists Best
The Great Indian Desert provides a unique opportunity for an all exciting and adventurous tour in India. A journey through the vast stretches of sands is an inspiring one. Desert Safari is one of the most sought after adventure tours. Out against the simmering sands, the sun on your back and laid out patchwork of sand dunes and eyes ending up at the sand horizon, is a great experience. The best part of it is the travel itself. Laid back in the jeep or on the ship of the desert, in the sand sea, is one journey that leaves an impression for long.

Thar Desert, at many places, is broken up by the low lying hills and some scant vegetation. The desert carries quite many notions of diversity. The physiography, biological life and scattered out traditional population makes it a wonderful place to explore. There are quite a number of species that thrive despite all the heat and sand. Great Indian Bustard, Black Bucks, Gazelles and Wild Asses are found in good numbers. Birds of prey can be seen soaring high over the desert sands. Commonly found species include buzzards, eagles, harriers, falcons and vultures.
