THE 2006 PUSHKAR FAIR, INDIA
LOS ANGELES, March 13, 2006 – SITA World Tours is once again celebrating the Pushkar Fair in early November 2006. Venture through India’s regal Rajasthan and the Thar Desert in search of the magical tranquil little town of Pushkar, where for one week every year you can find a festival of sights and sounds unlike anywhere else in the world.
The journey to Pushkar takes SITA travelers through the bustling city of Delhi, in position to snap the perfect sunrise photo of the Taj Mahal in Agra, and atop a graceful and royally painted elephant to the mountain fortress of Amber. Once in Pushkar, SITA clients will have deluxe-tented campsites and will be accepted immediately into this vibrant cultural environment.
Upon joining the Pushkar Fair, guests will find themselves surrounded by the experiences and wonders of another world. Camels are the center of festivities as they are raced and adorned for beauty contests. Religious devotees at the fair gather to bathe in the sacred waters of Pushkar Lake to wash away their sins. And on the night of the full moon, tiny leaf boats are set afloat on the lake, creating an amazing spectacle of floating stars.
Perhaps the most famous aspect of the fair is the trading and shopping. Horses, goats, sheep, and especially camels are seen everywhere as negotiations and deals are made. Jewelry and crafts are among the most popular products.
The Pushkar Fair is a part of SITA World Tours’ Regal Rajasthan seventeen-day tour through one of the most colorful regions in India, if not the world. While exploring this awe-inspiring “Land of Kings,” travelers will be treated like royalty in the exquisite surroundings of some of India’s best palace hotels.
Including the previously mentioned destinations that will be visited on this journey, guests will also tour such cities as Jaipur, Mandawa, and Mumbai. The price of the tour starts at $5,440 for double occupancy and a $250 discount is offered for those who sign up prior to April 30th.
