Travel through the sands of time on this exclusive cruise with world renowned Egyptologist, Dr. Hawas.
This November, and every November after that, travelers heading on India tours should keep their schedules open for the Pushkar Camel Mela, or the Pushkar Camel Fair. Nearly a quarter of a million people flock to Rajasthan to celebrate the versatile animal, but more importantly, to enjoy raucous merriment in the streets. During your India tours, you simply won't want to miss this cultural event of the year.
Along with the droves of visitors making their way to Pushkar, about 50,000 camels will fill the streets of the city, with countless local farmers descending on the city to barter and trade their animals for either younger beasts or goods. There will also be entertaining events throughout the festival, including the camel races, and even moustache and dancing competitions. Visitors can also participate in tug-of-war competitions and watch as locals vie for the honor of having the best turban.
Keep in mind that because this festival is the most popular of the year, many hotels will charge a lot more for you to stay there. To save yourself from the additional costs, you can book a special tour of India or simply plan ahead and reserve for next year's event.
