Pushkar Camel Fair
19th November 2018 - 26th November 2018
Held each November at the time of the Kartik Purnima full moon, Pushkar Camel Fair is one of India’s most highly-rated travel experiences, a spectacle on an epic scale, attracting thousands of camels, horses and cattle and visited by over 400,000 people over a period of around fourteen days.
For visitors it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the colour, spectacle and carnival of one of the last great traditional melas, which brings livestock, farmers, traders and villagers from all over Rajasthan. We believe that every aspect of such an experience should be special.
Welcome to Camp Bliss – our luxury tented camp at Pushkar Camel Fair –
a stylish and welcoming retreat and a magical way to experience this
In February 2019 you can also join us for an exceptional experience of Nagaur Cattle Fair, another of the great regional trading fairs, with even more camels than Pushkar and a deeply traditional feel.
Camp Bliss at Pushkar runs from 10 to 20 November 2018, and offers you luxury camping and the ultimate way to experience the more traditional aspects of Pushkar Fair, one of Rajasthan’s most spectacular events.
The Pushkar Fair official programme events and fairground will run from 16 to 23 November. The full moon night, Kartik Purnima 2018, the focus of the religious and pilgrimage activities, is on Friday 23 November.
From Monday 19 November to Tuesday 26 November we will be in the Hadoti region with some of our guests for the authentic local mela and Kartik Purnima celebrations at Chandrabhaga Fair, near Jhalawar; a chance to capture the atmosphere of the trading fairs of earlier times, and explore a less-visited area of Rajasthan.
