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.

Enjoy comfortable and easy travel. Stay in five star hotels in Varanasi and Lucknow. The accommodation in Haridwar is a beautiful traditional haveli, right next to the banks of the Ganges River. One of our esteemed Hindu guides will accompany our tour.

Explore the Mela on Magh Purnima (full moon day). Be there during the most exciting time, the main bathing dates!

A pilgrimage is a journey or search of moral or spiritual significance. Typically, it is a journey to a shrine or other location of importance to a person’s beliefs and faith.

The Kumbh Mela is the most significant pilgrimage for Hindu followers. People from all faiths and belief doctrines journey to the Kumbh Mela from all over he world. The Kumbh Mela has universal meaning for all who attend.
