The most spectacular thing is the Cattle FAIR tens of thousands of cattles are there for sale and purchase . Mostly are the camels and horses.

The sand dunes  spread over kms of area is full of camels and horses. While passing through those and viewing through a camel safari is wonderful experience. Yo see camels and camels spread all around .

Hundreds of photographers all around the world are seen moving here and there to get the best of snaps of camels, their movements, closeups and various combination of camels with sand , sun and dust . The camels owners are also seen staying there in carts / tents with all arrangement to have food prepared there itself.

The destination of camel safari is sunset point. And the sunset on the sea of sands is simply beautiful.

Relax there. Have a few shots of Archery if you like. Or one can also have the paragliding  chance there. The local folk artists are always there to entertain you .

Watching sunset with all these is unique and unforgettable experience.

We also had our dinner in a very small temporary made restaurant which is run by family members came from nearby districts, who just have a tent and one has to sit on the ground to eat , that is actually the traditional and local style of eating food. Of course we had millet ( bajra roti) bread with vegetables  full food , unlimited quantity in just Rs. 50 per person. So cheap yet sufficient enough to earn the daily earning for the family to have some profit on account of the fair.IMG-20151130-WA0021

Apart from that one can also enjoy the market in fair along with Camel CART ride, the great “SWINGS” , the fancy dressed children posing with you for photo, and of court all kinds of traditional and local craft items.

And in the last but definitely not the least, our heartily thanks from all of us goes to Dear Shekhar Prajapati, ( cousin bro of Brijesh Prajapati ) who not only guided us to visit the sites happily but also took keen interest in taking advance preparations for the visit. He in fact had gone , few days in advance on bike to find out a proper way to reach Agastya Muni Gupha through a unconventional way ( through canal) as the regular routes were closed for vehicle due to Pushkar fair. Without his efforts it was not possible to make this tour so wonderful. Wish him best of luck for future similar assignments , which I feel may be taken by him as a part time hobby / job for serious / decent tracking lovers coming to Pushkar from all around the world.

Pushkar Teerth Yatra by MBM 86 batchmates (PART 1/2)

The teerth yatra to Pushkar on 21.11.2015 ( Kartik Dashmi )

Left Jaipur @ 6.30 am by hired Bajaj Tempo Traveller. Had a nice breakfast on the wheels. Tea was brought by tea lovers in flasks. The hotness of it made it perfect delight with sweets, fruits and wafers.

MBM 86 Visit to Pushkar, in the tempo traveller !

On arrival to Pushkar at Sant Ramaiyaa Ram Ashram , service was rendered to hundreds of sadhu-sants by serving them food. An opportunity that comes very rare. We also had that same food as brunch. Also had some interaction with sadhus who have arrived from various places of UP / North India.

After the brunch went to “Agast Muni ki Gupha” , few kms on the outer Pushkar on the bed of NaagPahaad . It involves soem 10-15 minutes of tracking on the hill , but the path is very safe and not much slopes are there . It is very light tracking .

The banyan tree three was giving very cool feeling. It provides a perfect place for picnic. The mood got so happy that everyone was enjoying its branches and could not stop himself from taking a romantic photo with spouse.

 The Agastya Muni Gupha ( Agast Muni Cave) is really work visiting .The silence what was felt inside the Gupha was never felt any where. It was ultimate silence as it is much more than a pin drop silence.

Experience of 10-15 minutes meditation in such a pure silence is unique in feeling. One should experience it personally to believe it. After that experience only one can understand why such caves were used by our rishis for spiritual enlightenment.

There were some other small cave / platform on hills which were like semi open places for meditation, may be suitable for hot  summers.

The photo from those high level platforms :
