One of the most popular activities in Pushkar is to ride a jeep to explore the many, small traditional villages that surround it as well as the magnificent bodies of nature near it. Ride through the gorgeous sands of the Thar Desert and go up and down its many sand dunes. The Aravalli Range is nearby, so if you want a break from the desert heat, you can drive around and even stop to admire the lush green landscape of the range and revel in the cool, tranquil atmosphere generated by the sounds of the rustling foliage. This activity isn’t all adrenaline-pumping fun. Take the opportunity to get to know rural India intimately by visiting the many villages nearby. By visiting these, you’ll learn all there is to know about the rich culture that forms the state of Rajasthan. You’ll be able to see and appreciate a wide variety of artistic mediums and fascinating domestic practices. One of the best parts of this excursion is that you’ll be able to enter some of the houses in the villages and interact with their owners. If you’re lucky, you might see them milk cows, cook meals, and even get offered some tea to share with them while you talk. This is a must for nature lovers and for those who like learning about foreign cultures.
