- Sangam is obviously the main charm. Go either early morning, or during sunset. For food, I'd recommend you take a walk through loknaath, and you'll get to eat a large variety of snacks at all times (Read More) of the day. Netraam in katra has great poori sabji.
- Don't forget to bargain when going for the boating ride on Sangam - the riders can easily guess if you're not a native and take you for a spin.

Sangam is beautifully picturesque specially during winters, when the weather is nice. You can rent a boat and ask the guy to row you around the Sangam area - that's a great experience. It's not as di (Read More)rty as what many people think it would be, so you can even go take a dip in the holy waters.

Q. What are the stay options in Allahabad during the Kumbh Mela? Is it very expensive?

Yes, unfortunately it does get very expensive to stay in Allahabad during the Kumbh Mela. Hotels which typically charge 3-4 thousand per night, start charging 30-40 thousand per night, that too on da (Read More)ys other than the Shahi Snaans. You should definitely check out as many accommodation options as possible, for eg Airbnb, local guest houses etc. You should also try to talk to agents who provide tents for your stay in the Kumbh Mela area. Not only it is significantly cheaper, it is a lot of fun as well.
