Photography Expedition to  “Ardth Kumbh Mela” Allahabad, India  2019

Early 2019, a so called “Ardth Kumbh Mela” is going to take place in Allahabad, India. The Ardth Kumbh Mela is a smaller version of the big Kumbh Mela, which takes place every 12 years. “Small” in this context still means there will be several million pilgrims and a myriad of Sadhus gathering for the festival!

I recently kicked off plans for a new photography expedition, this time attending Ardth Kumbh in Allahabad with my Indian Partner Niranjan. The group will be limited to maximum 12 participants, and alongside the festival, we will also spent some days in Varanasi, India’s most holy city.

Details for this trip will be revealed in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned.

If you are interested in joining, please get in touch with me directly, and rather now than later, too, if possible: kumbhmela2019 [at] reisefotografie [dot] de
