I can’t believe it. Yes, seriously I can’t believe that such a vibrant place even existed. India is very beautiful. I loved communicating with the locales in Pushkar and apart from this, the most important thing- the handicrafts here are amazing and literally I loved shopping!
I travelled to Pushkar in the year 2017 during the Pushkar Fair which is held once in a year. In 2017 it started in the end of October. I and my husband arrived in Delhi then we had visited many places, Agra, Jaipur, Pushkar, Udaipur & Deogarh. I heard about Pushkar Fair from one of my friend and found it quiet interesting, so I thought taking a trip to this place with my husband. While searching I came across the website of Max Holidays and found their itinerary interesting, so decided to ask them to make arrangements. The staff re-organised the whole itinerary according to our preference, I would highly recommend this company to my friends and family. The guide was really helpful; he helped us throughout the trip. The hotels were amazing, most important the tents in Pushkar during the Pushkar Fair were an amazing experience.
I am completely in love with India and I am really sure about it. This is my third visit to India but a fun-filled experience of the Pushkar fair has now proved to be a true and delightful memory for me. Thank You Max Holidays for such a great vacation!
