An Amazing Experience!

26th of January 2017

The stay in the Tents is comfortable for 2 people but when the tent is being shared by 3 people it becomes a bit inconvenient. I'd suggest one small change in the set up of tents and that would be the arrangement of the electronic kettle. It's placed such that one tends to get burnt when the kettle is hot. In the cold atmosphere of the desert, the kettle is frequently used and would do good with better placement. The food at the tent city was delicious and the places that we got to see in the Kutch region have been amazing. We had an unpleasant experience with one of the drivers though. As he started the vehicle without noticing if we had settled inside and I was about to trip and fall. When we asked the driver to be more careful, he laughed at us which was rude. If I remember correctly his name was Devkaran. Apart from this incident, the staff at the Tent City was extremely hospitable and helped us out with everything we needed.
