Pushkar Camel Fair.
Getting there a week early
Where did all the Camels come from?

A week before most of the tourists arrive there are already thousands of
camels here and things are still clean and green with very little dust.

 

Excitement is in the air as thousand of camels arrive daily!

Pushkar, India

At this years camel fair in Pushkar 13,000 camels showed up, a few thousand horses and a few thousand cattle too. Camel men had to herd their camels for hundreds of miles down the roads to attend the largest camel event in the world. On the last few days of the unusual event there are thousands of camels headed back out on the roads in all directions form Pushkar. In just 2 days the number of camels will drop from 13,000 to about 3,000. It's kind of sad going out there and seeing so few camels left, but on the flip side it's quite a sight seeing thousand of camels, some pulling carts going through town and down the roads.

These are some very well behaved and friendly camels. I don’t know who’s
having the most fun, me checking them out, or them checking me out!
