Pushkar is the land of the pilgrims if we are told to describe it in only a few words. However, not many tourists know that it is one of the best places for camel safaris in the world. Most of the tourists are under the impression that Jaisalmer in Rajasthan serves as the best place for camel safaris in India. However, it must be stated that the variations in the different kinds of safari packages offered in Pushkar is marvelous. From a few hours around the changing sand dunes to a fortnight, the tourists can enjoy exotic camel rides throughout Rajasthan starting from Pushkar to make their trip truly adventurous and extremely memorable.

Traveler Tips

  • Carry sufficient amount of water with you and remember to put on your shades and your hat to beat the sunrays from giving you a tan.
  • Carry a camera with you to get a hand at photography as the rustic sight is majestic and deserves to be captured.
  • Wear something light if you are travelling during the day on any time of the year. If you are taking the safari on a winter night, then carry warm clothes with you because it gets chilly as soon as after the sun sets.
  • Carry enough dry food with you if you are going on a camel safari for a long duration because since you will be going through the remote villages, you might not get a place to eat at.
  • Carry a power bank as battery of your phone might become dead while you are bang in the middle of a desert where there is practically nothing but enormous sand dunes and a few cacti.
  • If you are visiting at the peak season, the package price will get increased by quite a big percentage.

Things to Do There

  • Tourists can go for a camel ride for a few years around the town and visit the famous tourist spots.
  • Watching the sunrise and the sunset amidst the golden sand dunes while being seated upon a towering camel is a huge attraction that is loved by all the tourists.
