Photographer Art Wolfe is there to capture the scene.

?There's hundred and hundreds of camels, tents, people are milling around, actually setting up for the camp tonight, as the Thar Desert night comes on, the temperature plummets and these people will probably sleep very close to their fires, just the sound of people talking, camels calling, very, very peaceful scene.?

So what's the name of this Indian town where camels and pilgrims are settling in for chilly night?

We'll be back to answer the quiz in just a minute...

Time now to check in on that camel fair we mentioned in our Geo Quiz.

It takes place in a small town in northwestern India called Pushkar. So Pushkar is the answer to our Quiz.
