Enjoy Camel Safari with Night Camping in Desert while volunteering in India with We volunteer in India- AVI

At AVI, volunteering in India is fun and strong enough to give a meaning to your life. This is evidenced from the fact that volunteers who once worked with AVI, are still in the contact with people out here. At, We Volunteer in India, along with volunteering programs in India, we arrange travel trips for our interested participants to Pushkar that offers them a chance to explore exciting camel safaris in the desert sand dunes that are famous worldwide. Pushkar is a holy place for Hindus mostly visited for the holy Pushkar lake, the Brahma temple and the renowned Camel Safari. Camel Safari is an adventure and also an ideal way to spend time exploring the rustic and royal Rajasthan, which takes you through the golden sands of the vast Thar Desert providing the glimpse of the desert lifestyle through remote villages.

The special cultural performances on the sand dunes, the camps set up for the travelers, the traditional Rajasthani meals and the picturesque hamlets with friendly folks, all together make Camel Safaris as one of the special adventure tours in India.

The major highlights of your trip to Pushkar will be:

  • Visiting famous Hindu temples
  • Enjoying camel safari with night camping in the desert
  • Enjoying shopping in the fascinating market
  • Taking dip in the holy lake if interested
  • Enjoying a varied food in the local restaurants
  • Relaxing at the lake side in the evening and enjoy sunset

Pushkar is a tourist friendly place. The local people are very welcoming and offer endless hospitality. Its market is very fascinating and easy to shop. It is popular mainly for buying textile items, jewelry, gift items, body massage etc. You will meet lots of Indian people coming from different parts of India on a religious pilgrimage to take dip in the holy lake with a belief that they will get rid of their sins.

Your trip can be for 2 days and 1 night OR, for 3 days and 2 nights (in this case you will stay in a hotel for 2nd night).
