Making a trip from Delhi to Pushkar could cost as low as Rs.500. Be that as it may, the advantage of the entire undertaking awaits you at your destination. The Pushkar Lake and the Brahma Temple will shock you and will set you up for what is to come ahead. Staying up at the Ajmer will be a better alternative since it gives you the chance to appreciate the picturesque trip from Pushkar to Ajmer, while additionally finding a better offer for your stay.

Make plans for a visit Wagah Border to witness the Beating Retreat Ceremony. A nearby transport from Amritsar will drop you at Attari.

Try to attend and be punctual (not later than 3 pm for the 4 pm service). Lodge in a traveler guesthouse for a cheaper deal.
