At 10:00 am we left for Salt Lakes at the out skirts of Khipro.
Erecting tents on Desert sand was a tricky task too. Initially we inserted the wooden nails vertically, but the wind pressure uproot them very quickly due to frictionless desert sand. Then one of the local dig the sand by hand and inserted the wooden nail horizontally in the hole and dump the sand on top of it. That trick work well and soon we be able to erect the complete tent.
And finally we left for Rabbit Hunting in the night. It was a once in a lifetime experience. We left in three 4x4s, the designated hunter has to sit on the bonnet of the jeep and the helper hang on the side with a big torch in his hand. As the jeep moves slowly into the desert the helper moves the torch light around in search of wild rabbits. As soon as one is sighted, helper focus the torch on to it and the rabbit became stand still for few seconds. The hunter has to take the shot during that few seconds, if not the rabbit recovered from the shock of intense light and run away.
Unfortunately we were not able to hunt any rabbit because we failed to follow the guidelines i.e. we made a lot of noise during our hunt which led the rabbits away from us. We did spotted 3 wild rabbits but all at odd times so much for the luck of the rabbits
