Snake Mountains and the Pushkar Fair!

The Snake Mountains are small hills that surrounded Pushkar, the location for one of the largest camel and cattle fair of the world. This, otherwise sleepy town, comes alive for a week in November when pilgrims and local village people come from all over for the holy dip in Lake Pushkar on a full moon night. It coincides with a fair which becomes a crazy shopping arcade of camels, cows, donkeys, as well as textile and other utility items. If you are not here for either, then enjoy the games that are organized every year, some for locals only and some for tourists and locals. If you are still not satisfied, end the day at the ghat and watch the sunset (below).

Can see this every day!
