Each year, millions of Hindu pilgrims assemble for the largest peaceful gathering in the world. Ardh Kumbh Mela occurs when Jupiter enters Aquarius and the Sun enters Aries—and in 2016 it occurs in the ancient city of Haridwar, India.
This trip to one of the world’s most diverse countries will not only embrace all the local celebration but will see you visit the iconic cities of Delhi, Allahabad and Calcutta. Included in the tour is transport via India’s renowned rail system (fourth largest in the world!), as well as a three-day boat ride down the famed Ganges.
