25 Things to Do in Pushkar 2020 (Starting from ₹455 Only)

The best things to do in Pushkar are as wide a range as the Aravallis themselves! Its hippie-indie vibes, sensuous mirages among sand-dunes, the festive Pushkar mela and the dance-culture of its rustic Kalbeliya tribes, make Pushkar a truly enchanting experience for travellers from India and across the globe. A dip in the Pushkar lake or a boat-ride on Lake Foy Sagar can be fulfilling. Pushkar is a famous pilgrimage site, known for its vast majority of temples and the neighbouring town of Ajmer. The Savitri Mata Temple, Shri Brahma Temple, Pap Mochini Temple are some of the most-visited houses of worship here. On the other hand, Pushkar is also teeming with an array of adventure activities. From the thematic camelback rides and desert safaris in jeep, to hot air balloon riding and ropeway swinging, Pushkar is the harmonious marriage of free-sprit and adrenaline.

Hiking up Ratnagiri Hills and the various ghats in this land of rolling hills, contoured landscapes and steep mountain slopes, should be on every tourist’s list of things to do. Evening aarti at Varah ghat is another mystifying experience where you witness thousands of diyas lighting up the limpid waters of the lake, as devotees lose themselves in haunting chants of prayers. However, the highlight of Pushkar remains the Pushkar mela. It is organised every year in late October and lasts until the first half of November. It is a week-long fair, with a plethora of lively performances, games, races and food sessions. It is tantamount to living the raucous, fun-filled Rajasthan experience in a capsule. A lot of foreigners frequent Pushkar during this time. Watch out for the entertaining live bands and dance performances. Finally, the markets of Pushkar are alive with colours and decorations reflective of the Rajasthani vibe. Shopping at the Main bazaar and the Sarafa bazar should definitely feature on your list of best things to do in Pushkar!
