pushkar fair

Held each November at the time of the Kartik Purnima full moon, Pushkar Camel Fair is one of India’s most highly-rated travel experiences, a spectacle on an epic scale, attracting more than 11,000 camels, horses and cattle and visited by over 400,000 people over a period of around fourteen days.

For visitors it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness the colour, spectacle and carnival of one of the last great traditional melas, which brings livestock, farmers, traders and villagers from all over Rajasthan. We believe that every aspect of such an experience should be special.

Welcome to Camp Bliss – our luxury tented camp at Pushkar Camel Fair –
a stylish and welcoming retreat and a magical way to experience this
extraordinary event.

From 21-30 November you can also join Camp Bliss for an exceptional experience of Chandrabhaga Fair and the little-visited Hadoti region. Another of the great regional Kartik Purnima fairs, Chandrabhaga is like stepping back in time. The camp will be set in the tranquil grounds of a beautiful old summer palace where a Maharaja created a lost pleasure garden in the 1930s. See more about Chandrabhaga >
