Chandelao, an untouched gem in the desert
October 30, 2011 • Spiritual Adventures
We’ve been out of touch for the last couple of days as we’ve been in a remote village in western Rajasthan. We left New Delhi on the 27th of Oct night by train which is always fun in India and headed to Jodhpur arriving about 7:30am the next morning. From Jodhpur we drove about an hour east to the truly remote village of Chandelao.
And what a magical place this is. Truly untouched and a gem in the desert. Here we stayed for 2 nights and 3 days. During this time we spent many hours exploring this village and neighboring ones as well, diving into our study and just enjoying being in such a remote place. Here are some photos from our train ride and first few hours in Chandelao Garh our home in the desert. More photos to come.
