Date: 1 – 7 November 2014
Duration: 7D/6N

Pushkar ‑ is famous for its colorful annual fair during Kartik Poornima (full moon) in the November each year.  At this time, this otherwise peaceful and gentle village on the banks of holy Pushkar take is thrown into colourful confusion when the desert tribes and camel caravans meet to trade cattle, camels, goat, sheep, clothes, jewellery and spices. Upto 20,000 traders and 50,000 cattle pour into town, along with numerous festooned camels and colourful pilgrims. After 10 hectic days of livestock dealing, camel racing and colourful festivities, everybody goes for a big holy dip in the lake on the night of the full moon (Kartik Purnima) and performs rituals in its waters to the accompaniment of temple & folk music.

On this occasion, I would like to invite all of you who have hobbies like photography and traveling to witness the festival which is an exciting and interesting. It certainly would be a lot of exciting moments that can be captured into an unforgettable memory.

    I still remember riding a camel in the deserts of Jaipur during our last vacation. It was an amazing experience. I never got a chance to check out the Pushkar camel fair but it looks like fun. Thank you Tania, for sharing such useful information with us.

      Hi Maria,
      thank you for visiting to my blog. I went to Jaipur last year but I didn’t know if Jaipur has deserts as well 😦
      But hopefully in Pushkar I could ride the camel 🙂
      Happy travel!
