Allahabad Kumbh Mela 2019
19th to 23rd January 2019
Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India.
Allahabad Kumbh Mela Photo Tour has been conceptualized in such a way, so that you can cover maximum rituals and activities before and after “Shahi Snan” – Royal Bath.
Pre-tour briefing about the attractions of the tour, safety precautions for the equipment and photographer during the tour, travelling instructions to/from your city to Allahabad etc. These discussions can be made via WhatsApp group, e-mail and telephone after the reservation of seat.
Arrive Allahabad (by air/bus/train) and proceed to the “Maharaja Tents”. Once everyone has checked in, we will be meeting before lunch for a round of introduction and orientation, where the Mentor will brief the group on the entire schedule, what to expect over days to come, how to shoot for some particular situations and do’s and don’ts. Evening shoot of different rituals around banks of the Ganges.
We set off early in the morning to delve deep into the spectacular Kumbh Mela festivities. You’ll shoot entire day in different Akahras where you can shoot portraitures of Naga Sadhus and their different rituals.
You’ll be shooting various rituals along the River Ganges, documenting Sadhus having their “Shahi Snans” – Royal Baths, according to various timings of different Akharas and their processions.
Spend the entire day shooting the Kumbh Mela area and the daily life activities.
You’ll be shooting numerous rituals along the River Ganges, documenting Sadhus having their bath. In the afternoon, end of the adventure. Hopefully it will not be a good-bye but rather, until next time!
Once you have completed the registration part then you’ll be provided the brochure and your extensive schedule where you’ll find the timings and ritual details.
