When you are sharing your travel plans with at least ten thousand other people, a few tips like these do come handy:

  • Use bathing grounds nearest to your hotel, inn or camp. It is more convenient.

  • Do not use plastic bags. They are banned.

  • Do not wash clothes or use soap while bathing.

  • Avoid throwing flowers amongst other things in the river.

  • Keep your belongings safe, especially at the bathing grounds.

  • In case you lose something, report at the lost and found counter.

  • Wear comfortable footwear. Vehicles aren’t allowed beyond a point.

  • The cold weather in Allahabad would need you to be well packed in woolens.

  • Carry mineral water.

  • Beware of touts.

And, travel light, book your tickets and hotels in advance (especially if you are planning to travel around the bathing dates) and get in touch with the Mela Administration and Assistance counters in case of need.
