  • the whole area is a turist trap with souvenirs and people who just want money. Stay away from people who will give you flowers for the lake.  more »
  • Early morning, or tourists in need of local colour, nor insistent beggars. To be discreet and respectful of local customs ensures a moment of happiness. Respect, peace and serenity.

  • Pushkar is a lovely place to visit with one night stay. All around lake, the lake itself and the township is very clean. Spend some time in the evening at the sunset point.  more »
