Pushkar Fair and Diwali Festival Ride

Ride Overview

The Pushkar Camel Fair is one of the great historical and colorful events of India. For untold centuries tribesmen have met at the full moon to trade camels, cattle and horses. Of late years there have been some 200,000 people and 50,000 animals.

The itinerary also includes the Diwali Festival, one of the most important Hindu festivals. Experience the full festivities and lighting of the city of Jodhpur.

You will cross varied undulating terrain on athletic, forward horses as you travel through rural Rajasthan on your way to or from the fair. For a trip that does not include a fair visit, the Korta Ride is also available.


During the non-camping portion of the trip, accommodations have been reserved in luxurious hotels, converted palaces, which are more rustic and distinctive, and charming heritage-type lodgings. Some of the hotels have swimming pools. On the camping portion of the trip, two person walled tents are provided, and hot and cold running water also. Hot water and electricity are reliable in most of the hotels, however, in some of the smaller villages the supply may be somewhat limited, but service is excellent and the beds are comfortable.
