Pushkar Camel Fair.
Riding around on a camel
Enjoying all of the fantastic views

The real camel action happens long before the official start
of the fair and ends a few days before the fair does.

 

Itís far more beautiful and less hectic before the fair starts!

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.

Entire herds are sometimes bought and herded off during this time.
