Since I was already in Rajasthan during the time of the Pushkar Camel Fair and I had heard so much about it, I figured it would be a shame to miss it. It is basically a camel trading market that is held once a year in the desert. But due to the insane number of camels and the locals who come to take a dip in the holy Pushkar Lake, the event has also morphed into a major backpacker area where you can get “special lassis” and spend days hanging out with other backpackers observing the spectacle (though I wasn’t sure anymore if the spectacle was the high backpackers or the camel market or the locals coming to take a dip in the lake). I am glad I went, but felt like I spent days afterwards getting the sand out of my clothes, shoes, hair, teeth. I uploaded some pics, but don’t think the pics really do justice to the craziness of the place. Definitely an event you should go to if you are anywhere nearby.
