If adventure is your cup of tea, Pushkar shall not disappoint you, even though it's majorly a religious town. Here we suggest to you some of the adventure sports you can indulge in here.

  • Camel Safari

    Camels are known as a major symbol of Rajasthan. These innocent-looking, warm animals can help you experience first-hand the rustic beauty of Pushkar. Going around villages, especially during the harvesting season, can be a very fulfilling experience.
    Some camel-guides decorate their creatures in such finery that you will be even more enticed to take a ride.
    The safari may extend anywhere between 2 days to a month. The guides ensure that your luggage is taken care of. It may cost you anywhere between INR 250 to INR 300.

  • Hiking

    The ever-evasive desert sands and the lofty Aravallis are a perfect backdrop to set out on hiking adventures. The long march up the Ratnagiri Hill to reach Savitri temple is the ideal path for hiking-lovers. The serene waters of Pushkar Lake will greet you time and again as you undertake hiking excursions in Pushkar.

  • Hot-air Ballooning

    Sites such as Pushkar Lake, Ajmer Road or the sand dunes serve as ideal ones to launch fascinating balloon rides into the skies. This exhilarating adventure is done under proper guides and technical advisors, and conducted through the stretch of an hour.
    This activity begins at 6 in the morning and goes on till it gets sunny when it halts, and then restarts at 4 in the evening. The months between October to March are the time when it is organized. Summers are too hot for it.
