Hi all, I have read all the messages concerning the current situation of Udaipur Lake... though it seems that the town is however worth the trip and a few days stay, I am wondering if the Pushkar Lake is dry as well. Has anybody information about?
Thanks!
Gianni

God forbid such a thought. I was there during Pushkar fair (Nov 26-26, 2004)...saw the lake alive and kicking. Just make sure ur there at the sunset point just adjacent to Pushkar Palace Hotel in the evenings.

Thanks all! Your responses sound really encouraging for me to spend some days in Pushkar... but I will also go to Udaipur, although drier!!

Was just at Pushkar 1 week ago, not dry... and was one of the highlights of the Trip ... beautiful! if you go, be sure to get a real priest in the temple to bless you, not the ones by the Ghats who seek for donation and give you brahmin food at the end... they are not real and don't give em' more than what you feel comfortable... locals don't donate at all...

We too have just spent some days in Pushkar, the lake is fine, the fish are swimming in abundance we saw some a metre & a half long, go down to one of the ghats at night were theres a strip light reflecting into the lake, you'll see them.
Years ago I have seen the lake almost dry with just a pool barely 100 mtrs diameter, it used to run out into the desert area behind were the bridge now links Jodhpur ghat with the pushkar palace road. the bridge stopped that happening though the lotus beds out there consequently all dried up.
The only sad thing now about Pushkar is that theres no peacocks left, all hunted for there feathers, such a shame, they were an emblem of pushkar as they are of all rajasthan ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
