Things to do in Pushkar

Stroll through the labyrinth of alleys, bazaars, and ghats to discover the magic of the quiet Pushkar city. Some of the many reasons to visit Pushkar are its spirituality. Take a dip in the sacred Pushkar Lake and visit the only Brahma Temple in the country. It is a natural wonder - captivating sunrises and beautiful sunsets over dunes and lakes. It's food - the cafe overlooking the lake offers a variety of dishes. Shopping; Some of the finest varieties of silver jewelry, traditional clothing, and rose products can be purchased at Pushkar, a vibrant bazaar. Photography - The colorfully dressed happy people of the surrounding villages provide ample opportunities for photography enthusiasts to take great pictures.
Pushkar Lake

Spending the night on Pushkar Lake is one of the best experiences of your stay. It feels extraterrestrial. A cool breeze blowing around a calm lake. This is mixed with hymns, chants, and bells coming from all directions from different temples while enjoying the perfect view of the sun disappearing below the horizon. They leave only a faint glow that quickly fades, and all of this combined makes you feel amazing.
Pushkar's Savitri Temple

Pushkar's Savitri Temple overlooks the entire city of Pushkar and the surrounding valleys. The temple can be seen at Pushkar Lake and the beauty is that the temple is only a 15-minute walk from the lake. It is the most accessible and a great way to enjoy the scenery across Pushkar. The climb from the foot of the mountain takes about 15 minutes, and although you may need to take a break, the steps are quite steep. There is also a cable car that climbs the mountain by cable. If you don't mind short workouts and sweating, we recommend the stairs. Watch out for monkeys, they are very aggressive, combat-ready, and tense.
Pushkar Markets

Cruise through the many markets just a lane away from the Pushkar lake. They can be found on most sides of the lake, and you'll be surrounded by jewelers, souvenir shops, and street vendors within a short stroll.
City of Merta

The city of Merta has a population of 40,000, almost four times the population of its better-known neighbor, Pushkar. You can rent a bike and head to the city of Merta to see what the city was like and why so few tourists visited it. The drive is almost continuous along beautiful roads until you reach the outskirts of Merta. The road turned into a rocky and bumpy maze with different levels and obstacles placed in front of you. 
The Pushkar Camel Fair

The Pushkar Camel Fair kicks off on October 23rd and draws huge crowds. Livestock is bought and sold at the world's largest camel fair. However, the fair has grown into a local festival and a major tourist attraction. Contests such as the 'Longest Mustache' and 'Bridal Contest' are permanent fixtures of the fair. Thousands of tourist flock to Pushkar for the fair. Book your accommodation and transportation in advance as this is the busiest time of year for Pushkar.
Pushkar Jeep Safari

If you want adventure, the Pushkar Jeep Safari is one of the best ways to go. A jeep safari takes you through the rugged landscape of Pushkar and its surroundings. One of the best ways to explore this region of Rajasthan. Jeep Safari also introduces you to many hidden gems of places such as Views of local waterfalls and exquisite and rare wildlife. The big hotels in Pushkar usually arrange safaris.
Kalbelia Dance

Known as one of the most sensual dance performances in Rajasthan, Kalbelia Dance is a unique dance performance of its kind. No trip to Pushkar is perfect. Named after the dancing tribe, the Kalberia dance performance will mesmerize you with its sinuous, shimmering serpentines. The best part is that Pushkar hotels host this dance performance on their premises. If you prefer, you can also get in touch with the dancers directly, enjoy a performance in the dunes, and immerse yourself in the original taste of Rajasthani.
For all its facts and myths, Pushkar is one of India's greatest tourist attractions. Needless to say, with its unusual mix of dunes, hills, lakes, and forests, Pushkar is a picturesque little town. It is known as an oasis city because it is located on the other side of Pushkar Lake. It takes you to a romantic rendezvous along a labyrinth of alleys and alleys, bazaars, and ghats. Without a doubt, this spectacular city will captivate your eyes.
