Pushkar in Winter (November - February)

With the onslaught of the winter season comes the range of tourists pouring into this old, religious town. As Pushkar is located in Rajasthan, much like the state, the town’s weather is synonymous to enormous heat waves. Due to this, Pushkar’s only respite from the heat comes in the winter months of October to March. During this time the weather in Pushkar is relatively cooler, and the temperatures range from 8 degree Celsius to 22 degree Celsius, which is the lowest that the town sees in the entire year. Nights bring forth the cooler temperatures, and this makes for perfect conditions for sightseeing and visiting the numerous temples in the city.

Novembers in Pushkar is also awfully crowded due to the famous Camel Fair which takes place in the town. The fair is known for not only its celebration of Camels and variety of shows but also as an important trade fair. During this time, several markets come together to trade their goods be it spices or clothing. Typical fair games, shows and other cultural activities are also displayed and open for all to enjoy.

Pushkar in Monsoon (July - September)

The monsoons in Pushkar are quite similar to the summers with regard to the average temperature which is steadily high. The weather during the months of July to September is way too humid and scorching for sightseeing hence making it a less ideal time for visitors and travellers who wish to get most out of their trip from this beautiful town. Since this is an off-season and there are just intermittent showers, this time is perfect for budget travellers.

Pushkar in Summer (March - June)

Summers in Pushkar lasts from March to June and the days are sweltering and dry, which makes it the least ideal season to visit. The weather is almost always dry and relentlessly hot with temperatures rising to 45-degree Celsius which means that you need to take proper precautions to avoid sunburn and dehydration. On the other hand, there are water shortages during these months, hence avoiding summer will be the right decision on one's part. However, the nights are chill with a lot of activities like desert walks and cultural festival being conducted. The hotel prices are also much lower. So if you're a budget traveller who can bear the heat, then it's a preferable time.
