Tourism is the largest service sector provider in India as per the finance commission. With ongoing economic growth and emerging middle class, this sector is bound to grow in future. Rajasthan has been a pioneer state in promoting tourism. Its share in total tourist in India accounts to 16 percent foreign and 4.3 percent domestic tourist. Tourism accounts 8percent of SDP and 21percent of total jobs. It has diverse natural resources and cultural heritage. Tourism development is more relevant in a place like desert circuit, where due to adverse geographical conditions development of other industries is not feasible the desert circuit (Jodhpur-Jaisalmer-Bikaner) has witnessed major impacts due to tourism. These include heritage, cultural, traditions, land-use, and vernacular character, nature of spaces, infrastructure, environment, socio-economic aspects, and economy of the region, job creation and impact on other industries. There has been subsequent growth in no. of tourist in recent years. Due to unplanned growth of this sector the impacts are increasing. Despite rich cultural heritage growth rate of most popular spots is declining in terms of no. of tourist visitors. These places have reached their bearing capacity and new spots have to be developed to sustain the growth of tourism. Presently major focus is on heritage tourism while great potential for business, religious, rural tourism also exists, which can be integrated with each other. The aim was to study impacts and propose strategies for development of tourism in desert circuit.

Mots clés : Tourism, regional development, desert circuit, impact, diversification.
