Asada, a small village in Rajasthan’s Barmer district, is located 10 km south of the small Luni river. The international border with Pakistan is almost four hour’s drive away. The village in itself may not have anything interesting to offer. A ride to the Pakistan border with a prior permission from relevant authorities may prove to be exciting.
Places to Stay
Being a village, naturally there are no places to put up for the night. One is forced to venture into the famous Barmer (103 km away) for lodging. There are a couple of good budget hotels in the city. Some of the options which are worth a try are Hotel Krishna (Tariff – Rs. 800), KK Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 500), Shivam Palace Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 800), Kailash Sarovar Hotel (Tariff – Rs. 1,000).
The official language of Asada is Hindi.
The important festivals celebrated are Holi in March, Hanuman Jayanti and Dusshera in September-October and Diwali in November.
