Jaisalmer Desert Festival - Himalayan Footsteps

Winter is festival time in many parts of India, one of the most popular festivals is the Jaisalmer Desert Festival, which is held each year in January or February.

Don’t miss this festival, if you’ve always wanted to see a turban tying competition. Or how about a pageant to find the man with the most impressive moustache? You might even be lucky and catch the winner for a souvenir picture with you. Admire some of the best traditional Rajasthani folk dancers and singers under a moonlight sky, amidst the exotic background of the impressive sand dunes of the Thar desert.

The desert festival is the best opportunity to witness a truly spectacular showcase of traditional Rajasthani culture and taste delicious Rajasthani cuisine. The festival site in the desert can be reached by car or on a camel safari.

If you would like to visit Rajasthan, maybe even during the Desert Festival, contact us for more information.
