Pushkar Sunset Tour

If you haven’t sat on one of the Aravalli hills, with a couple of your friends and have not witnessed the calm serene brilliantly read and orange sun drowning in the infinite ocean of lovely brown sand, then you haven’t felt what it is to be completely weightless against your body while conversing with the cold breeze and sensing each speck of your soul. That’s what sunset in Pushkar does to you.

Pushkar being one of the oldest villages in Rajasthan describes this state of deserts in the aptest way possible. A village still submerged in the world of ancient sands, bright-coloured shops, and an air of traditionality, it offers you something which none of the villages anywhere in the world can. A perfect balanced blend of traditionality and modernity with a sly sense of flexibility of time and culture. Nothing is more exciting than doing a camel ride in Pushkar and spending an adorable evening with friends on the top of a hill.

To be able to walk through the old weary boulevards of Pushkar means a world to those who understand the essence of a culture survived through the storms of modernity and westernization. Moustache believes that anyone who is alien to this astounding culture and tradition of Pushkar must have a chance to witness it firsthand, Hence, we are delighted to present you the extravagant ‘Pushkar Sunset Tour’.

To bring the ethos of Pushkar’s sunset in a form of expression is like dreaming to walk on the moon someday soon. Sitting on the top of a hill and experiencing the charm of that lovely sunset can be only felt and sensed.

To have perfect timing between an itching heat and caressing cold, our sunset tour starts at 4 p.m. Pushkar being a village, walking is the primary means of conveyance, therefore we too will walk through the roads and streets, and hike over a small hill to the reach the famous Savitri temple.

To serve you in the best way possible and help you explore every nook and corner of this enchanting village, our tour will trudge through some nearby rural settlements so that you can also get to see the myriad mechanisms of a pure Indian village, which thankfully is still untouched by the wave of modernity. On the way, befriend the locals, laugh on their stupid yet amazing stories and take a few life skills from them too.

You will also have a traditional Kulhad chai with a plate of hot delicious samosas from one of the local shops to enjoy the evening. Guess what, the tour also consists of a small adventurous hike to the Savitri temple. After you have walked for 1.5 km, you will a turn and an elevation will start. Its an interesting hike, nothing which is difficult or needs a lot of effort. But the best part is that within 15 minutes, you will reach a height from where you can almost see the entire Pushkar from your own eyes. Isn’t it exhilarating to watch the entire life of Pushkar city right in front of you? Once you have reached the Savitri temple, go around the explore the antique halls of it. If you are a Hindu believer, nothing better to do a small prayer in front of the shrine.

The hill at which the temple is based has a lot of area around it. Find yourself and for your friends the most comfortable place and wait for the moment – The sunset moment. Well, we wouldn’t want to ruin the expression and essence of what the sunset looks like, so savour the moment.

Another interesting thing about the sunset tour is the evening time. Once the sun has gone down and you have enjoyed the incredible moment, you will see the amazing Pushkar city would be twinkling and glittering because of its street lights. It’s a spectacular sight to behold! While you are coming hiking down and are on the way, its time for the stories to come out.
