Book Tour and Activities on the Go!
Rated : 4.0
We have been in India for over a month now. I along with my husband started touring India from its Southern tip and progressed towards north. If I be honest to you, in this one month we ventured almost every known and popular site of India. So, last week we were in Delhi and our 2 week stay was left in India. I was shopping at the INA market where I was communicating with a lady from the Rajasthan stall. She told me about the Pushkar Camel Fair Adventure Festival which was to begin next week. I was so delighted by the description that she gave me that I knew, I wanted to get there. After getting all the necessary details from the web, we headed for Pushkar. For us, it was a 3 day and a two night tour at the Pushkar Mela. This indeed was the highlight of our India venture. There were cattle and camels everywhere. It was my first time at camel ride and believe me guys, it was super fun! Food, the typical Rajasthani food we ate was a delight. It gave an orgasm to my taste buds and I just couldn’t have asked for more. Though oily and a little spicy for my taste, I definitely ate more than I usually do. Indeed, I have done camping at multiple places in the world but the warmth and the hospitality we received here was unparalleled. On the whole, it was really cheap and a once in a while experience that will definitely be etched in my memories for many many years to come. I’ll definitely recommend it to my friends in London who fly down to India. Right from the people to the food and the activities that we did here, everything was beyond perfect. Kudos to the organizers!

There were thousands of horses, camels, cattle, farmers or traders who had come here from several miles away. Shops here were exquisite. Everything that was stocked in these stalls had a flavor of Rajasthan. I bought some bangles and earrings for myself. My daughter took a skirt which has a Rajasthani print and looked every bit royal. If I have to give you one advice for shopping here, I would say appreciate the art and the hard work of the artisans here. They have put in a lot of effort to create something so unique exclusively for you, so please don’t spoil the whole meaning of it by bargaining. I have seen so many people bargain here. Of course, they do over price a bit, but why not just value the fact that you’ll own something unique and handmade? At least, I would not suggest you to bargain for the prices here. One should partake in all the activities and carry with you an experience that will stay you grounded and connected to your roots. It was a delight being there.
