Legend has it that the gods once lost their strength. In order to regain it, they agreed with the demons to churn the primordial ocean of milk for amrit (the nectar of immortality). This was to be shared equally between them. However, a fight broke out which went on for 12 human years. During the battle, the celestial bird, Garuda, flew away with the Kumbh (pot) that held the nectar. Drops of nectar are believed to have fallen in the places that the Kumbh Mela is now held – Prayag (Allahabad), Haridwar, Nashik, and Ujjain. The celebrations in January – February 2013 will be especially auspicious as it is the purna (complete) Kumbh Mela and is being held after 12 years! Absolutely nothing else in the world compares to the scale and enormity of the Kumbh. Over 70 million people attended the 45 day ardh (half) Kumbh Mela back in 2007! Our tours are specially created for intimate cultural experiences. The group size is limited to 6 members. There are unique, intimate, hard to find experiences around Kumbh. There will be handpicked Kumbh scholar to make sense of the madness. The group will stay in lockable, fire-proof, internet enabled luxury housing units.
