Camel catwalks to rainbow riots: India's wildest festivals

Hot, hectic and unforgettable, India is a big country with an even bigger personality.

Yet, despite its loud, sometimes overwhelming energy, it’s also a highly spiritual country, with tradition and festivals at the heart of its people. So, if you’re a party-going culture vulture who wants a feast for the senses and religious festivals to remember long after the celebrations are over, a holiday to India has it!

Holi




Want to add some colour to your cheeks on holiday? Head to any Indian town or city during Holi in March. This carefree ‘festival of colour’ features kaleidoscope-coloured powder fights, dancing under water sprinklers and complete abandon for some. 

Diwali




Those wanting to keep their clothes the colour they bought them should visit India in November for Diwali; a five-day ‘festival of lights’ that represents the start of the Hindu New Year. Expect fireworks, clay lamps, candles and a manner of different orbs to be lit during this warm and atmospheric celebration, as they are said to represent the victory of good over evil and brightness over dark.

 

Pushkar


However, if you’re hoping for a super holiday story to tell friends at home, there is a completely wacky festival that needs to be seen to be believed. The Pushkar Camel Fair also takes place each November in the tiny desert town of Pushkar, in India's state of Rajasthan. For five days an astonishing 50,000 camels infest the sand dunes as far as the eye can see, to be dressed up, paraded, shaved, entered into beauty contests, raced and eventually traded!
