Pushkar Camel Fair

Highlights:

During the full moon, each November, a remarkable event takes place in Pushkar and its surrounding sand dunes — the Pushkar Camel Fair. Nomads and camel traders bring more than 25,000 camels to buy, sell and trade. The camel-covered dunes, camel races, camel saddle and jewelry stalls and wildly colorful fairgrounds add up to one of the most amazing events in all of India. Travelers on our special festival departure dates will visit the Pushkar Camel Fair and stay in the visitors' tented village; the slightly higher price for these departures reflects this extraordinary added feature.

Duration: 14 Days/13 Nights
Destinations Covered: New Delhi - Agra - Jaipur - Pushkar - Udaipur - Jodhpur -Jaisalmer

Pushkar Fair: The tranquil Pushkar is transformed into spectacular fair ground for 12 days in the month of Kartik. Trading of cattle, camel races and dazzling displays of bangles, brassware, cloths, camel saddles and halters are the major attractions of this colourful event. Devotees come in their thousands to take a ritual dip in the lake on the day of Kartik Purnima and to worship at the one and only one Brahma temple in the world.
