Rural fun and frolic
The best of rural Punjab fun and games occurs annually at Kila Raipur village near Ludhiana where great big Sikhs get competitive with hound races, horse dancing, tug of war, bullock race and more. Watch their show of strength and daredevil stunts that is to be seen to be believed.
India's answer to the Highland Games usually happens after the icy winter of December and January and timed with the early spring season. This is an experience best enjoyed with a farm stay near-by to really take in the Punjab experience that is always large on food, drink and Bhangra.
