The cheapest and one of the most enjoyable mode of transport would be a bus ride from the govt bus stand Ajmer to pushkar .Fare Rs 9. You travel along with locals and vendors travelling to the fair. The route winding through the Aravalli mountain is very scenic.
Here i am travelling with a person who sells cloth flowers
the nearest airport is jaipur, from there there are regular buses to Ajmer, It takes about three hours to reach ajmer. The roads are very good and journey comfortable.
The nearest railway station is in Ajmer. There are daily trains to delhi, twice weekly to bangalore and mumbai. The railways are planning more trains to mumbai and chennai.
There are buses that depart pretty regulary to Pushkar from near the Nasiyan (red) Temple on Prithvi Raj Road in Ajmer. The trip is very scenic as you go over the hills that form the Aravali Range and it takes about 30 minutes and costs just Rs8. The buses stop at the bus stand to the east of the town.
I took a government bus from Pushkar to Jodhpur from the bus station that is located to the north of the town near the track that takes you up to the Pap Mochani Temple. Unlike other buses in India, the one I took had good legroom. It left as 8.30am, took 5hrs and cost Rs100. The roads out of Pushkar are very good but be warned, they get worse the further you go towards Jodhpur. You'll get a good taste of rural Rajasthan on this trip and go through some real rural villages where the roads are all but washed away.
Pushkar is brilliant to walk around, but why not treat yourself to a camel cart ride to save your legs.
It is not the lap of luxury, but you get to see a different view of the town and the fair.
It is really cheap, maybe 100 rupees from the furthest campsites into town.
3-4 hours, change in Ajmer
The half hour ride between Puskhar and Ajmer is served by numerous buses all day, so it doesn’t worth taking a cab.
Ajmer – Jaipur by train means 140 km and a little less than 2 hours, and there are a few trains every day. We took a train leaving Ajmer at 15,50, which arrived in Jaipur at 17,30 pm.
We reached Pushkar from Udaipur which was a quiet long way with such a bus…
The bus leaves Udaipur at 10pm and arrives in Pushkar at 5 o’clock in the morning.
During the way the driver will make a couple of stops where you can drop off the bus and walk for a while..
If you want to take a bus simply go to your GH or any travel agency and they will organize it for u …
Pushkar is a very easy going city and the strange thing I detect is that there was no one cicle rickshaw in the city, which is definitely not bad as the city is very small so is no problem at all to walk trough it…So if you want to hang around you just need to walk trough his streets…
If you don't want to take the bus to get to Pushkar from Ajmer -- which, trust me, you should not -- call Hari Bhai at 9829371000. The usual rate for a hatchback is Rs300 but he will agree for Rs250. On time and clean ride. Takes 30 minutes.
Night train, change in Phulera and in Ajmer
We did not manage to find a direct night train from Jaisalmer to Ajmer.
From Jaisalmer, we took the Barmer Jaisalmer Delhi Express no 4060 at 16,00 pm, arrived in Phulera at 4 am and waited for the next train to Ajmer (train no 9106 arrives 5,30 am in Phulera and at 7,30 am in Ajmer, daily).
The half hour ride between Ajmer and Puskhar is served by numerous buses all day, so it doesn’t worth taking a cab.
Pushkar can be reached by bus from a handful of Rajasthani towns that include Ajmer, Jaipur, Udaipur, and Jodhpur. There are no train services to Pushkar, but you could catch a train to nearby Ajmer and get a bus from there to Pushkar (Ajmer is about seven miles [11 kilometers] away), over the Nag Parbat (the snake hill).
You get around (small) Pushkar by foot. Alternatively, rent a bicycle or motorcycle (just ask around to find rental outlets). There aren't any cycle rickshaws or autorickshaws in Pushkar, but jeeps can be hired for trips to surrounding areas.
This tower is interesting enough to gaze at its reliefs while waiting for the bus to get to ajmer, or until the best bicycle in the world is hired to you.....
Pushkar is very close to Ajmer, but seperated by a mountainrange that makes the ride take half an hour - but also quite intersting, with nice views.
