Airfare to Jaisalmer increases as tourists flock city

Jaisalmer: Tourists are flocking to Jaisalmer to celebrate Christmas and New Year. For the next 8-10, there are no rooms available in city hotels. There is a boom in the tourism industry, especially after Jaisalmer was connected to other destinations by air.
Looking at the high demand for Jaisalmer, the private airline operating flights between Jodhpur and Delhi from Jaisalmer has increased the fare to Rs 18,000 between Jaisalmer and Delhi and Rs 10,000 from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur. There are so many tourists that now the 12th century city looks too small to accommodate the crowd.
The hotels have been decorated and all the trains coming to Jaisalmer are full due to large number of tourists, forcing many to reach the city by their own vehicles. The roads of the city appear small due to large number of vehicles.
The hotels have been decorated beautifully to welcome Christmas and New Year. Beautifully decorated Christmas trees have been put up in hotels. Many delicious Chinese and continental menus are being prepared.
