I went on the Pushkar Camel fair 2015 with my friends. We were a group of 10 friends who decided to have some camping fun. This indeed was one helluva travel experience for me. Initially, I thought if it is a festival in Pushkar, it will only be about camels and cattle. However, when I went there, I was left agape. There were several fun and adventure activities organized too. Right from the camel ride to paragliding and enjoying some thrilling moments on the Thar’s Golden sand, I enjoyed every activity that we did here. Camping again was a thrill. Ours was a 3 day trip which left with us lasting memories. We danced, sang songs, played games and shared stories with people who were just like us. Surprisingly, besides the number of locals here there was also an array of foreigners who were having an equal fun on the lands of Rajasthan. Of course, when you see them enjoying, you get a different level of satiation. They were not only participating in every activity but also relished on the Rajasthani food, as much as we did. You have to keep your calorie count aside and completely immerse yourself in the typical flavors of Rajasthan. Surprise element of this festival was the cricket match. I am not sure whether it was included in our itinerary but I was definitely not aware of this. We Indians are cricket buffs so we never shy away from cricket. Here a match was organized between foreign tourists and the local Pushkar club. This was super fun. Of course, we won this friendly match and our enthusiasm was at a different level altogether. Do go there, not just for the camel rides but also to partake in the different activities here.

Thanks to my colleague Satish for suggesting me a day sightseeing of Udaipur. I have been to Rajasthan on official duty many times, but this time I wanted to hang out with my friends and colleagues. The trip was not only affordable but it covered all the places on-dot. The driver was punctual and seemed to have knowledge of not only the local places but also of the famous hotels and shopping places, this was like an icing to our cake. In short we bought many things at a very nominal price. The lunch and snacks we had at the recommended places were hygienic and clean – full marks to our driver for helping us out in and out. Communication was never a problem as the localities are able to speak Hindi very well. The magic of the tour is still lingering in my eyes, the beauty of the places at Udaipur are to be seen personally. We are very much satisfied with the services and the day package. At some places we hired the guides and they were totally co-operative and flexible in communicating with us. Overall Kudos to the tour organizer for their excellent provision of behind – the –scenes insights! There are no words to give a complete review of what we felt – but here are some highlights of the trip – the city palace is the most popular place which shouldn’t be missed out, the Jagdish temple shows the artistic skill of the craftsmen, the Pichola lake even though being an artificial lake gives a real look that soothes your eye and soul, and your trip will not be complete if you don’t visit the sukhadia circle at the evening time. The tour ended within a day but the memories of it are still sweet and fresh in our mind.

I had read many reviews of Jaipur tour; I personally feel that this trip is awesome. Initially we had doubts in hiring a private car for Jaipur sightseeing as all the members in our gang were girls. But then after having taken up this trip, I have no words to praise about the trip and about the driver, who was courteous and showed us all the places on-time. The driver was a professional one and he was a knowledgeable guide too, we never required a personal guide anywhere. We didn’t want any hurry-burries and so we decided to take up a whole two day sightseeing of Jaipur, thankfully we chose this option. Sightseeing Jaipur in one day is not a best thing as there are many things to cover and you will not be able to see all the places leisurely. The elephant ride and amber fort itself will take more than half a day, hence little bit of planning is needed. The car stopped then and there for our refreshments and rest stops. As the car was comfortable we didn’t face any kind of issues, but of course, we faced bit of dehydration as we took up this tour in June month. The Hawa Mahal was wonderful, and the city tour was marvelous. Compared to other modes I feel that Jaipur sightseeing by car is the best way to travel and enjoy all things leisurely. The only regret is that we didn’t have ample time to shop, heard Jaipur shopping is the coolest things in Rajasthan, but due to lack of time, we couldn’t make this out. Well these being said, I am longing forward for yet another trip to explore Jaipur.

I went back to Pushkar Fair after 4 years. We wanted to give our children an experience that stays with them forever. The very atmosphere, sounds, smells, livestock, sunsets and the beautiful oasis village, everything is just perfect. It is nowdays a good idea to book the tickets online in advance to not miss out on this festival as finding any stay or accommodation at that time is very difficult. We booked nearly a month in advance and were delighted with the best tents here. I am so thrilled that my kids finally tried something desi. I am originally from Pushkar but live with my family to Gurgaon. Why wouldn’t I not want my kids to have a feel of my roots? It was a simple experience with too many surprises. Camel ride was an obvious fun. Rajasthani cuisines were out of the world. Every meal that we ate had a different local cuisine of Rajasthan. People cooking here did take an effort to keep our taste buds satiated. I very well appreciate the efforts taken by every member of the team right from the organizers to the cleaning and maintenance guys, all of them did a pretty well job to ensure that the guests were at an absolute comfort. To this date, I have tried several adventure activities but the quad biking that I tried here was very well set up. It is a good and a very cost effective package. If you want to experience something unique and apart from the rest of the world, this festival is meant for you.
