The Pushkar is a tiny town in the center of the desert of Rajasthan. This barren land of Pushkar gets alive during the festival of 9 days as many local traders, villagers, and travelers come to visit this fair for the trade of camel and livestock.

Well, this festival is mainly focused on camels and livestock. Yet I’d suggest you take care of your belongings while roaming in the fair. In the nights the temperature goes down so keep that in mind while packing your rucksack.
