Pushkar Camel Fair (28 0ct to 4 Nov 2017) in Rajasthan, India

by Easy Tours of India Luxury Tours and Travel in India
The Pushkar Camel Fair, one of the world’s largest open-air cattle auctions, is a fine opportunity to explore true Indian desert culture in the heart of Rajasthan. As fall sweeps through the arid state of Rajasthan in North India, thousands of people begin driving herds of camels, horses, and cows towards the town of Pushkar for this yearly holiday that combines all the hallmarks of a typical country fair with the flair of the Hindu religion into a truly unique festival.

Pushkar Camel Fair
The Pushkar Fair is one of the largest cattle auctions in the world.

For most of the year, Pushkar is a quiet town resting on the banks of an eponymous lake, but the Pushkar Fair turns this usually sleepy village into one of the most decadent destinations in North India. Parades, camel safaris, acrobatic performances, races, and livestock pageants are just a few of the intriguing spectacles that can be spotted during the Pushkar Camel Fair.

Like most festivals on the Indian subcontinent, the holiday’s dates are determined using a lunar calendar, and as such, dates can shift several weeks each year. Typically, the Pushkar Camel Fair falls between later October and early November.
