Research for Rajasthan Tour – Day Five

30th Oct Drive Bikaner-Pokaran.  Lunch will be on direct payment basis in Pokaran. Afternoon, visit Pattu weaving village. Stay overnight at Hotel in Pokaran.

A three hour drive through the desert to Pokaran. Oh dear, the first google searches comes up with details about the nuclear tests carried out in the 1970s and 90s. The main attraction is the fort which is now a hotel.

Pattu weaving is traditional to the area – it is done in narrow strips for shawls and blankets using camel and sheep wool.
