Itinerary for Pushkar Fair Riding Safari in Rajasthan





Sample Itinerary: Udaipur-Pushkar - subject to changes

Day 1: Arrival in Udaipur
Time for sightseeing. Dinner and overnight in middle class hotel.
Meals included: Dinner
Overnight at Hotel Boheda Palace in Udaipur


Day 2: Test Ride & Sightseeing
After breakfast you will have the chance to either take a boat ride on Lake Pichola in Udaipur or do some sightseeing of the Eklingji / Nagda temples on our way to Deogarh, the starting point of the Safari. In the afternoon we will take a test ride to make sure we are well matched with our horses. 
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping near Deogarh


Day 3: Deogarh to Jormuda
On the first safari day the trail will lead through the lower hills of the Aravalli Mountains. Todays' route takes us through small villages and across lush and fertile lands. Around 4 pm we will arrive in the safari camp where we will spend the night.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping near Jormuda


Day 4: Jormuda to Kherda
Another day of riding through the hills. After lunch we can visit a number of tribal villages. They are usually situated on top of small hills surrounded by a wall of thorn bushes. The houses are built in clusters with thatched roofs and with walls made of mud. Often they are nicely decorated with white tribal paintings. Here we can experience first hand the unique culture of the Rajasthani tribes.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping near Khedra


Day 5: Kherda to Lalpura
Today the landscape becomes more level and open. The main range of the Aravalli Mountains lies behind us and today we must navigate through a handful of ravines and canyons on the way to Thar Desert. The landscape is changing again and the lush vegetation is giving way to thorn trees and shrubs. .In the villages camels are becoming an increasingly common sight and cows are being replaced by goats.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping near Llapura


Day 6: Lalpura to Jawaja
Today we enter the semi-desert which borders the vast expanse of the Thar Desert. The ground becomes sandy and the predominant colours are now yellow and brown. The terrain has leveled out and the hills are left behind. Open desert invites opportunity for long trots, canters and gallops and we may spot some antelope.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping near Jawaja


Day 7: Jawaja to Kharwa
Another day of riding through semi-desert brings us closer to Pushkar. We will encounter herds of cattle, camels and sheep either going or coming from the fair. Trading in Pushkar has taken place many years before the fair came into being and in the course of nearly a month thousands of animals will arrive in the otherwise sleepy town of Pushkar. We will have lunch today by the very impressive Kharwa Fort which we can visit afterwards. We should arrive at camp in the late afternoon.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping near Kharwa


Day 8: Kharwa to Pushkar
The last day of the safari the trail before reaching Pushkar leads us over sand roads and through thick thorn bush vegetation which is home to Nilgai and Chinkara antelope. Villages are rare at this point on our ride and the sand roads invite faster riding. Arrival in Pushkar is around 3:30 pm but a part of the Mela (fair) has to be crossed in order to reach our camp which is situated within walking distance of the fairground. The riders will have a short glimpse of the fair and the camel market. In the evening we may have a chance to walk over to the fair or perhaps attend some of the evenings activities going on there.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping near Pushkar


Day 9: Pushkar Fair
After breakfast we will can visit the Pushkar Fair on horseback. Since the trading ground is on a huge sand dune outside the town, this is a very comfortable and easy way to discover it. After the fair we will visit the area around Pushkar. Pushkar is situated at the edge of the desert and is surrounded by spectacular scenery. The countryside here is dry and infertile making agriculture rather hard. Many farmers choose the business of raising camels here, due to their adaptability in drought stricken areas.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight camping near Pushkar


Day 10: Departure
Morning free to do sightseeing in Pushkar and then departure.
*Possibility to add on other sight-seeing options for the tours end.

Note: the second week runs in the opposite direction of the first week.
