    Rajasthan.net.in's Ten Commandments for safe travel in India

        Do not buy travel tickets or book transportation with unauthorized dealers and persons. The safest way to having peace of mind and an enjoyable trip that is memorable for the right reasons is to ask your Travelers Hub tour operator to arrange for transportation.
        Do remember to check your travel documents before starting the journey and update all important telephone numbers in your diary, apart from storing emergency numbers (Police assistance, Ambulance service, local contact person etc.) in your cell-phone, if you choose to carry one.
        If you are on prescription medication, please ensure you have adequate supply of both prescription/s and pills for the entire duration of your India tour and perhaps a little extra to cover unforeseen delay periods during travel etc. Do remember to carry a doctor's certificate along with you to avoid possible problems with any customs checking procedures in India.
        First-time travelers to India may well be fascinated by the exotic array of spices, cuisines and affordability of street and hotel food, but it is inadvisable to eat spicy Indian food without sampling a bit f irst or affirming the extent of spice-blends used with the chef/service attendant.
        If unsure of your ability to communicate in regional scenarios for the entire length of the tour or if opting for a combination of tour packages, especially to remote areas, please feel welcome to request your travel agent for a language interpreter. Do not play Lone Ranger - as adventurous as the prospect may seem - foreign tourists can be regarded as far from that by unscrupulous elements and considered easy targets for mugging and far more heinous crimes.
        Mineral water is your best companion while in India's tropical climate and is your safest bet for keeping various contaminated-water related ailments at bay and also for brushing your teeth.
        If you intend making any changes to Domestic Tickets in India, do consult your trusted travel agent for the best advice.
        All foreign nationals can use credit cards, traveler's cheques or foreign currency for the payment of all their bills, though they may use Indian rupees in case they can furnish proof of having exchanged money legally.
        Please remember that banks in India function from Monday to Friday from 1000 hours to 1230 hours (some also function post-lunch, but you may need to consult your tour operator for specific bank details) while Government and administrative offices in India function from 0930 to 1700 hours on weekdays. So, please make arrangements for bank transactions and business dealings with either group keeping these timings in mind.
        Pack smart, travel light and determine weather, region-specific culture and etiquette, available cuisine (especially for those with specific diet restrictions) and range of activities prior to setting forth on the vacation of a life-time. To avoid the Holiday-from-Hell, we encourage you to try one, or more, of our custom-designed tour packages that eliminate the hassles of holiday planning (thanks to an in-house expert team of experienced to ur managers) and are guaranteed to pep you up with promise of happy times while in India!

    Advanced Planning Tips

For this reason and to serve you better, we have put together some basic guides that bring you closer to preparing and experiencing India like a true-blue vacationer.

Cover basic ground for determining whether your travel consultant can professionally organize a tour package with all the ingredients you are looking for-and get set to have a holiday of a life-time!

    If traveling with a partner or group, it pays to determine the needs and interests of each person and convey this to the travel agent. Even if you are travel by yourself, the more specific you are about your tour requirements and what appeals to you, the easier it is for the tour professional to accommodate a perfect holiday package for you. Besides, India being vast and varied in terrain, concept tourism offerings differ greatly, so it's advisable to know what you are game for -and also what the country offers before picking a particular tour package. Read up and know more about your destination and whether your tour operator can combine one or more interests in a tour package and the cost and time implications of each of them.

    Please try and be as specific as possible about the kind of accommodation you are accustomed to and will require while in India and if traveling with a companion, their needs for lodging as well; beds for example, may vary from King size to Queen size in some hotels and if you are particular about this aspect, do mention it at the time of booking.

    For persons with mobility limitations/health conditions that require vehicular support devices, such as lowered steps or wheel-chair assistance, it is advisable to enquire before-hand of the tour operator whether arrangements can be made f or the same when being received at the airport/railway station and transported to hotels.

    Do make it a point to let your tour operator know about what time of the day you'd like to arrive/depart from India to avoid unnecessary jet-lag and having to waste precious holiday time.

    Ask your tour operator about the other activities and popular tourist attractions of Indian destinations you will be visiting and whether any of these can be accommodated with your tour package at extra cost, should you wish to stretch your holiday possibilities.

    You can also contact the local Tourist Boards of various Indian states as these have offices in Delhi, should you require additional region specific information and guidance about what their State offers.

    Decide before-hand the amount of sight-seeing/touring on foot or local transport means (cycle/auto rickshaws, boats, buses, horse or camel rides etc.) you will be comfortable with.

    Determine the distance of your hotel from the main town area, especially if you have a penchant for checking out local markets and cultural scenes for getting a personal glimpse into the soul of a city on foot. Although, Indiabycaranddriver.com does make the effort to include visits to specialty areas of each regional zone, such as cottage industries, crafter's galleries, plantations and souvenir shopping points, it is possible you may like some alone time. However, please do not wander far from your lodgings if by yourself and unfamiliar with the local language/Hindi- for your own safety- and always inform the tour guide, hotel manager and any other guest about your reconnoitering plan.

    If you have an affinity for any particular Indian tradition or holiday offering that is not currently available with us, be sure that Indiabycaranddriver.com's aim is to provide you with the best of Indian touring experiences and we will work on your request at the earliest to bring together your dream vacation plan.

India-bound? Then, pack for a trip that will change more than your perceptions about a tradition-bound, globally recognized rising economic power that is fast-emerging as the preferred destination for concept tourism as varied as its land and people: from w eddings to festivals, from wildlife to luxury travel and back-to-nature or history tours, we have it all. Indiabycaranddriver.com handy check-list covers all the essentials for packing right and packing light: see for yourself!

    Ensure you have all the relevant documents necessary for the duration of your India-vacation plan before you leave home. Take time out to 'know' the tour plan details and additional activities that are included or can be accommodated upon request: pack garments, footwear and accessories appropriate for these.

    Put away adequate reading, music or video material for spending your time unwinding with; this is especially helpful to persons visiting India the first time as it is known to give a sense of the familiar when in a foreign place, making for easy adaptation to surroundings.

    If you intend to travel with jewelry or excess cash/other high-value items, please confirm with your tour operator about the availability of safety deposit boxes with the lodging site/hotel you will be putting up at.

    As any experienced tour operator will tell you, Murphy's Law about things going wrong if they can, may very well apply despite the best precautions and preparations towards making the perfect vacation travel plan. For such instances, please pack a small overnight bag with basic change of garments, emergency medication and telephone numbers, toiletries, small hair-dryer, duplicate copies of important travel documents and extra cash (credit cards do not always work in all situations) to avoid distress over luggage arrival delays and other such similar situations.

    Sensible packing of toiletries for India would include putting in hand sanitizers,(toilet rolls are not available at all transition points or in remote areas, where at times, even rest-rooms may be few and far between one major sight-seeing spot and another) your brand of sunscreen (may not be available everywhere in India), essential make-up kit, mosquito repellant of your choice, water purification tablets and bath-salts.

    If shopping is high on your priority list, please remember to add in another bag suitable for carrying your larger purchases.

    Buy/download print-outs of guides to exotic and unfamiliar destinations and consult these during your journey to stay updated about travel specific problems or hazards at the Indian location you are headed for, so you have a clear idea how to deal with something similar should it happen to you.

    Pack clothes that are made of natural fibers to allow a certain level of 'breathability' for your skin; Indian being a tropical country is never short of sunshine and sweat in most regions except the hills. Nylon fabrics are best avoided unless visiting cold regions in India or planning a winter visit, while reading up about dress-codes prevalent in places on your tour itinerary can guide you about garments best given a miss.

    Carry only those things you will need in India with you, such as enough cash to cover emergencies or occasional urge-to-splurge, traveler's checks and credit cards but exit home with extra baggage like social security cards, extra credit cards, shopping mall coupons, club memberships you won't need here.

    Do remember to carry duplicates of credit cards and ATM cards, passport, traveler's checks, tour itinerary, airline/railway tickets and hotel reservation slips, contact information of local British consulates.

    Packing for India tour destinations becomes easy if you familiarize yourself with the events and activities of the destinations you will be visiting as acculturation to customs and laws will clue you in to what is appropriate.

    A linguistic tool, such as a cassette or guide book that gives you knowledge of the native language is a handy item that can help you out of a sticky situation such as calling for the police, contacting a hospital or asking for help should you get in trouble away from your tour group.

    Above all, a sense of humor, bewildered awe and camera to capture irretrievable moments with adequate supply of film and batteries/chargers are possibly things you can't do without when packing for India

  • n around November each year, a small town in India comes alive with explosions of color, song and dance as people come all the way to celebrate the exuberant Pushkar Camel Fair.The greatest cattle fair of India and Rajasthan.

    What is Pushkar Camel Fair

    Pushkar Camel Fair (Pushkar Fair or Pushkar Mela) is a fascinating annual 5 day festival held in a holy town of Pushkar in the state of Rajasthan, India. The initial intention behind the festival was to draw local livestock traders to do business during the Hindu month of Kartik, which begins with the new moon in November. Being the only one of its kind in the entire world, Pushkar Camel Fair has two components: the livestock trading, where thousands of camels, cows, sheep and huge crowds congregate; and the flamboyant carnival after the first five days. Today, the fair takes center stage and has become a popular festival with locals and travelers, who come all the way for a week of immense sights and culture that seem only possible in India.  
    Pushkar Camel FairCamels are dressed up to attract buyers and win competitions.

    When is Pushkar Camel Fair celebrated

    Pushkar Camel Fair usually falls at some date in the October/November time frame, depending on the Hindu calendar of the year. Oftentimes it lasts longer than five days.

    In 2017, Pushkar Camel Fair is during October 28 - November 4.
    In 2018, Pushkar Camel Fair is during November 15 - November 23.
    In 2019, Pushkar Camel Fair is during November 4 - November 12.

    How is Pushkar Camel Fair celebrated

    Everything about camels (in full swing on the initial five days)

    Over 20,000 shaved and dolled-up camels from throughout Rajasthan are all over the place, doing camel races (great chance to see the animal moving at top speed), participating in amusing camel beauty contests or ready to give visitors a relaxing riding tour. There is an eye-opening competition that tests how the camel is able to bring items. Moreover, it’d be interesting to watch the bargaining skills with which local cameleers deal trade, if you are fortunate to have a private tour guide around for translation and assistance.

    Longest moustache contest and bridal competition (after the 5th day)

    The unbelievable annual longest moustache contest comes with Pushkar Camel Fair, while men showing off their stylish facial hair, some of which are revealed to be meters long and require curling against the face. The bridal competition is where young foreign women decorated in contemporary or traditional Indian bridal dresses to outdo each other and compete for the most beautiful brides to be.

    Pilgrimage in Lake Pushkar & at Brahma Temple (the final day)

    Surrounded by 52 bathing ghats, Lake Pushkar is the heart of this small town as a pilgrimage center. By the end of Pushkar Camel Fair comes a holy day called Kartik Purnima celebrated on the full moon day. It is when countless Hindu faithful dressed in colorful attire, from far or near, bathe in the sanctified Lake Pushkar at dawn to wash away the deadliest sins before they visit the only Brahma Temple (devoted to god of creation) in the world to receive blessings.

    Other traditional entertainment (throughout the fair)

    Pushkar Camel Fair has a myriad of other events on offer in the festival ground: vibrant folk music, dances, acrobatics, fortune telling, feasting, an exhibition cricket match that invites foreign visitors to challenge the local Pushkar club, etc.. Stalls are set up selling trinkets, jewelry, apparels, carpets plus a wide selection of items from gaudy livestock tassels to vintage gypsy accessories.

    Transport to Pushkar

    The most comfortable transport to Pushkar would be flight to Jaipur International Airport, the closest airport from Pushkar at distance of a 3-hour drive by vehicle. Note: Taxi fares can be up to 5 times the normal rate during the festival period. You might as well considering taking a private tour to enjoy more reasonable price.

    The otherwise way to reach Pushkar is follow train routes linking Ajmer and Pushkar from Delhi via Jaipur.

    Accommodation & when to book

    Better notice that Pushkar is a small town that offers limited accommodation options, amongst which there are more budget rooms than midrange ones. Travelers can choose to stay anywhere between simple guest house, desert camp, heritage hotel and farm stay-some are equipped with a few midrange-priced rooms. During the fair, the great demand for a bed in Pushkar due to the influx of domestic and foreign visitors causes skyrocketing accommodation prices, and rooms run out very fast.

    When it comes to organizing a decent place to stay during Pushkar Camel Fair, visitors have to book accommodation really early, advisably at least 10 months well ahead of time.

    -If you prefer to see the animals rather than human, come a couple of days earlier before the full moon day and spend time walking around the desert. It’s a good time to watch the actual buying and selling, grooming of the camels, cattle, horses, goats, etc..

    -Temperatures in October and November (the dry season) vary from 59°F (15°C) to 84°F (29°C) without rainfall. Stay hydrated, cover up the body to avoid the sand troubling you too much. A light jacket will come in handy to prepare the morning/evening chill.

    -The fair made its name for endless colorful events. Normally it is not possible to stay till the end. Check the festival itinerary to find out what interests you most.

    -Pushkar Camel Fair remains a religious Hindu festival, so dress conservatively and act with decorum, e.g., pointing at people with a finger is considered rude.

    -For the cuisine, alcohol is strictly prohibited and vegetarian fare is the only choice in Pushkar.

    -A credit card would not work in the festival ground. Stuff your pocket with some rupees in case you feel like being anything. A few ATM machines are available in town.

    -When taking photographs & making arts, you have to compete with stock photo agencies photographers, media personnel and artists since Pushkar Camel Fair attracts not only ordinary travelers. Make sure to get permission when taking close-up pictures of people and their animals. Sometimes your subject asks money for taking his portrait but not if you have the company of an Indian tour guide.

    Pushkar Camel FairBehold! The gentle-looking camels are notorious of biting, kicking and spiting things close to them.

    -It gets very crowded during the fair-keep a close eye on your belongings and stay on your guard. Don’t carry excessive cash, avoid falling into tourist traps. Again, a local guide is indispensable if you want to feel secure.

    Share or bookmark this page for your future use (I know you’re ready to do something)! Other not-to-miss important Indian festivals, including Diwali (Festival of Lights) and Holi Festival, are what you may be interested in too.

    In closing, just a kind reminder that Pushkar Camel Fair is NOT just about camels. When encountering the people, sound, smell and religious happenings, be open and friendly, enjoy what the fair is for - I am sure you will go home with lots of precious pictures and stories!

  • n around November each year, a small town in India comes alive with explosions of color, song and dance as people come all the way to celebrate the exuberant Pushkar Camel Fair.The greatest cattle fair of India and Rajasthan.

    What is Pushkar Camel Fair

    Pushkar Camel Fair (Pushkar Fair or Pushkar Mela) is a fascinating annual 5 day festival held in a holy town of Pushkar in the state of Rajasthan, India. The initial intention behind the festival was to draw local livestock traders to do business during the Hindu month of Kartik, which begins with the new moon in November. Being the only one of its kind in the entire world, Pushkar Camel Fair has two components: the livestock trading, where thousands of camels, cows, sheep and huge crowds congregate; and the flamboyant carnival after the first five days. Today, the fair takes center stage and has become a popular festival with locals and travelers, who come all the way for a week of immense sights and culture that seem only possible in India.  
    Pushkar Camel FairCamels are dressed up to attract buyers and win competitions.

    When is Pushkar Camel Fair celebrated

    Pushkar Camel Fair usually falls at some date in the October/November time frame, depending on the Hindu calendar of the year. Oftentimes it lasts longer than five days.

    In 2017, Pushkar Camel Fair is during October 28 - November 4.
    In 2018, Pushkar Camel Fair is during November 15 - November 23.

    How is Pushkar Camel Fair celebrated

    Everything about camels (in full swing on the initial five days)

    Over 20,000 shaved and dolled-up camels from throughout Rajasthan are all over the place, doing camel races (great chance to see the animal moving at top speed), participating in amusing camel beauty contests or ready to give visitors a relaxing riding tour. There is an eye-opening competition that tests how the camel is able to bring items. Moreover, it’d be interesting to watch the bargaining skills with which local cameleers deal trade, if you are fortunate to have a private tour guide around for translation and assistance.

    Longest moustache contest and bridal competition (after the 5th day)

    The unbelievable annual longest moustache contest comes with Pushkar Camel Fair, while men showing off their stylish facial hair, some of which are revealed to be meters long and require curling against the face. The bridal competition is where young foreign women decorated in contemporary or traditional Indian bridal dresses to outdo each other and compete for the most beautiful brides to be.

    Pilgrimage in Lake Pushkar & at Brahma Temple (the final day)

    Surrounded by 52 bathing ghats, Lake Pushkar is the heart of this small town as a pilgrimage center. By the end of Pushkar Camel Fair comes a holy day called Kartik Purnima celebrated on the full moon day. It is when countless Hindu faithful dressed in colorful attire, from far or near, bathe in the sanctified Lake Pushkar at dawn to wash away the deadliest sins before they visit the only Brahma Temple (devoted to god of creation) in the world to receive blessings.

    Other traditional entertainment (throughout the fair)

    Pushkar Camel Fair has a myriad of other events on offer in the festival ground: vibrant folk music, dances, acrobatics, fortune telling, feasting, an exhibition cricket match that invites foreign visitors to challenge the local Pushkar club, etc.. Stalls are set up selling trinkets, jewelry, apparels, carpets plus a wide selection of items from gaudy livestock tassels to vintage gypsy accessories.

    Transport to Pushkar

    The most comfortable transport to Pushkar would be flight to Jaipur International Airport, the closest airport from Pushkar at distance of a 3-hour drive by vehicle. Note: Taxi fares can be up to 5 times the normal rate during the festival period. You might as well considering taking a private tour to enjoy more reasonable price.

    The otherwise way to reach Pushkar is follow train routes linking Ajmer and Pushkar from Delhi via Jaipur.

    Accommodation & when to book

    Better notice that Pushkar is a small town that offers limited accommodation options, amongst which there are more budget rooms than midrange ones. Travelers can choose to stay anywhere between simple guest house, desert camp, heritage hotel and farm stay-some are equipped with a few midrange-priced rooms. During the fair, the great demand for a bed in Pushkar due to the influx of domestic and foreign visitors causes skyrocketing accommodation prices, and rooms run out very fast.

    When it comes to organizing a decent place to stay during Pushkar Camel Fair, visitors have to book accommodation really early, advisably at least 10 months well ahead of time.
