Every January, the small village of
Ladera in Bikaner, Rajasthan becomes the venue of the two-day and
night Bikaner Camel Festival. Camels fascinate tourists from all over
the world with their movements, charm and grace. People from all over
the world come to India to attend the Festival where camel owners
flock to show-off their camels. A festival when the ships of the
desert are seen at their best.
Organized by the Department of Tourism, Bikaner Camel Festival is
festival of Art and Culture. Desert region's Folk dances and Music add
on to what is otherwise an exclusive camel affair. A competition for
best decorated camel, fur cutting design, camel milking and the best
camel hair cut is organized. The camels display amazing footwork,
dancing gracefully to the slightest direction of their drivers. You

dances, and the bumpy, neck shaking camel rides.
In this festival tea and sweets prepared by camel milk are made
available to the visitors interested in enjoying them. So enjoy the
lustrous traditions of Rajasthan while celebrating the humble camel,
ship of desert at the festival.
