We just wanted to see the lake... the place was called Varagh Ghat. Random people will tell you welcome and ask you to sit in front of the lake and giving you some hindu prayers. After that they charge you a lot of money... You cant just go away because you are surrounded by their people. CHEATERS!

It's ok but dirty and uncared for which is a shame. This lake should be better cared for given its significance but it is like everything in India. Should be loved given it's heritage but neglected and shameful.

This lake was the reason we travelled to Pushkar. There were occasional prayers over the speakerphone in background which was somewhat atmospheric otherwise a pretty quiet place. Otherwise don't expect too much here. It's a shame that even in one of the holiest places in India there is no protection from rubbish. The holy lake seemed, like any other waters... More

Everest hotel gives you good value for money. Perfect location near the the ghats. Very helpful owner and staff. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. A blessing to have a nice rooftop restaurant. Perfect place to have a nice rest in.

Walking out and viewing the ghats for the first time was an amazing experience. We walked right around the lake to try and take in every vista. Pushkar itself is a small colourful town and was our favourite location visited on our Golden Triangle tour.

Well, Pushkar is some 150km from Jaipur, and about 30 km from Ajmer sharif. The road from Jaipur to Pushkar is a fantastic drive. It's a delight to be on that road. The lake is big, but the entrance to the lake and the steps could have been cleaner. The priests who get hold of you and start of chanting... More

Too much crowded place. If you are not into gods and temples then you can avoid this. Otherwise ok. One should avoid local guides and puja pandits or you may end up paying not less than ₹1000 at least for some Puja which you are not intended to do.

The pilgrimage site attracts a fair number of Hindu devotees and entry points to the lake are via temple gates. In the afternoon, guys on the street hand you flowers to try to get you down to the lake for a "blessing", if you do expect to pay. In the evening, as a solo traveler watching the religious ceremony, i... More
