Kumbh Mela Tour
Join our Kumbh Mela tour! Travel through North India visiting important Hindu pilgrimage sites. We attend the auspicious Kumbh Mela in Haridwar.
The Kumbh Mela is sacred Hindu pilgrimage that takes place on a rotation basis at four locations in India: Prayag (near Allahabad, at the confluence of three rivers-Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati), Nasik, Haridwar and Ujjain.
The pilgrimage occurs every three years, once at each of the four locations. Each twelve-year cycle includes the Maha (great) Kumbha Mela at Prayag. The Maha Kumbh Mela is attended by millions of people, making it the largest pilgrimage gathering around the world.
This travel experience is comfortable and easy. We stay in five star hotels in Varanasi and Lucknow. The accommodation in Haridwar is a beautiful haveli, right next to the banks of the Ganges River. One of our esteemed Hindu guides will accompany our tour.
The trip is planned to be at the Mela for Magh Purnima (full moon day). Be there during the most exciting time, the main bathing dates!
