What Is It?

We’ve got the perfect antidote to the post Diwali hangover – the Pushkar Camel Fair in the beginning of November. Want to have a chill time and nurture the photographer in you? Make a trip sometime between Nov 3 – 14.

But hey, if you need assistance with staying options, here’s help.

Who Is It For?

The fair best captures the essence of the desert state by letting you experience the rituals, festivities and local culture. So, whether you’ve got a great eye for pictures, or are someone who appreciates the country’s rich heritage, the Pushkar Fair’s totally up your alley.

Also, those who’ve been seeing hump day as just something that painfully leads up to the weekend, now’s the time to readjust your perception – camel races and camel trading ahoy!

Why Should I Go For It?

It’ll be a colourful whirlwind of activities with freshly-manicured camels in all their finery, nomads in vibrant ghagras and thousands of pilgrims coming over to take a dip in the Pushkar Lake.

It’s also a great time to fulfill your glamping dreams with stay options that include cosy tents with warm lamp glow and block prints on the walls. There’ll be a buzzing market with tents, markets, folk dances, mela-type rides, gorgeous sand dunes dotted with bejeweled camels, gypsies, music and cart rides to make you witness the India you’ve so far only seen on postcards or Incredible India posters. When the pilgrims pour in, you’ll also find yourself surrounded by chants from the Brahma Temple.

Imagine being in a real-life movie set in a village fair – you and your DSLR can go on a dizzying overdrive clicking everything that captures your fancy.

Anything Else?

When: Nov 3 – 14

Where: Pushkar, Rajasthan

Her ideal day begins with a glass of good cold coffee and a frizz controller that can tackle her mane concerns. Words are her weapons of destruction {or she makes cookies that are sometimes hard enough to shatter glass windows}. She loves beaches, wine and all the good things life has to offer – movies, polka dots and brownies included.
