I would like to thanks you to arrange my trip on such short notice and make it memorable. My daughter has enjoyed unforgettable moments and have not seen her so happy too. I would also like to thank Ramesh for his excellent behaviors and guidance during our tour. Thanks Again. Regards, Amit Goswami

It's important to highlight that the Lake is a place of worship for Hindus so treat it as much. Take a walk around the inside of the Lake so u should put ur shoes in a bag as some ghatts r stricter than others and people get upset to see ur shoes in the actual Ghatt area. Becareful of the... More

Pushkar is really worth the stop- apart from the Lake, the stunning temples, the good restaurants and then there is the Camel Fair...this makes for a stunning location. The craft markets are excellent but this is a crowded place and lots of local Indian tourists and its well on the back-packer route too. So you can expect some heavy pressure... More

We enjoyed mingling with the pilgrims and getting a special "Pushkar "passport e.i a special blessing from a Jaipur Brahmin as well as listening to the early and late services.

The Pushkar Mela just got over a week back. We really had a good time and I thought I should write a few lines so some of you wishing to go can really make the most of your visit. A) try to visit the fair at the start than at the end. You will hit less crowds and more livestock... More

Beautiful to see from a far. You have to take your shoes up to walk along the ghats. Watch out for touts claiming to be "holy men" who will perform prayers with you then demand money.

Walking (without shoes) the entire loop around this holy lake-- with its countless temples--is best done early or late in the day. It takes about an hour and a half or more. Bathers, pilgrims and bird-life are abundant. This experience is at the heart of a trip to the holy city of Pushkar.

Visited the Lake at late night around 11 pm during the Pushkar Fair, the lake was completely quiet and we could hardly see someone there. The Lake had all the reflections of the lights and the moon. It has around 50-52 ghats for the purpose of bathing and other Hindu rituals. The lake is surrounded by the Aravalli Hills and... More
