PUSHKAR CAMEL FAIR

01 November to 09 November 2022

The Pushkar Cattle Fair, or Camel Fair, as it is more usually known, is one of the largest fairs of its kind in Asia.  What began as a religious fair celebrating the Full Moon of Karthik Purnima is now a huge trading fair for camels, cattle, sheep, goats and the beautiful Marwari horses.  

For one week of the year the usually quiet, desert town of Pushkar turns into a bustling market place as villagers from all over Rajasthan come to trade, bargain, race and compete.  It is an extraordinarily colourful affair and photographer’s delight, and should not be missed by any visitor to India.

This year the Fair will be held from the 1st – 9th November. We are arranging a group departure from the 4th – 6th November.
In addition we can arrange private travel for any days of the Fair and can suggest options for combining the Pushkar Mela with a longer journey in Rajasthan. The earlier days of the Fair are when most of the animals are present and the trading is done in earnest, the end of the Fair has the most religious significance.
 
Accommodation at Pushkar will be in comfortable ‘Swiss Style’ tents with attached bathrooms. All meals are included; these are simple by nature as meat is banned in Pushkar for religious reasons. 

If you are interested in joining our trip to Pushkar, or would like us to put together an individual itinerary for you, please do not hesitate to get in contact. As train tickets will be at a premium, early 
booking is recommended.
