Although generally referred to as the Pushkar Camel Fair, it is not restricted to camels, and you will find cattle, goats, sheep, Marwari horses, etc – and all the fun of the fair! It is also a religious occasion. Dazzling displays of bangles, brassware, clothes, camel saddles and ornaments vie for attention with dancers, singers, mehendi artists, acrobats, etc….

Accommodation will be in Swiss tents with attached bathrooms with running water.
