These sand dunes are just at a walking distance from Sanchal Fort Hotel. A Must visit place in the late evenings or early Mornings for sunrise or sunset views. Some youngsters could be observed having Beer and scattering Bottles.

We had a race to reach the top of sand dunes and were exhausted at the end. But the experience was worth enjoying. Having snacks and local performance at the top was wonderful.
