With India's only Brahma temple and a holy lake, Pushkar is the place to rub shoulders with pilgrims and sadhus (holy men).

A hot chai at the top makes the effort worthwhile!

Classic Rajasthan, April 2014
I went on this trip because I don't want to travel alone. The group consisted of five couples and I wasn't even warned about this when I booked. I was the 11th person to book so all the couples were already booked and the advisor could have suggested another date as had been done for one of the couples I was tour with. They had considered a different date and their advisor had told them that the date of this trip might be more suitable as there were other mature couples. I was disappointed about this.

Classic Rajasthan, May 2014
India is a country of sharp contrasts. I like that Intrepid captures both through visiting both main sites but also allowing an insight into real life through visits to smaller villages etc
