Kumbh mela, Jan 2019

Hey all, I'm attending the Allahabad Kumbh mela Jan 2019. Targeting to see the Jan 15 Shahi Snan and depart the next day morning to varanasi airport. I was told by one varanasi person that there will be no vehicular movement on Jan 14,15 and 16, into and out of the Allahabad. Worried I cannot book a cab to airport. Could somebody confirm if the traffic control is real or not ...so I can decide when to book the return flight...

vehicular movement is restricted around kumbh mela. It will be difficult to get Taxi or cab near kumbh mela you have to walk or take two wheeler to your taxi or cab.

Last Kumbh we experience problem next day of shahi snan as highway towards varanis as it was blocked because of traffic. Local driver who knows most of area used dirt road and short cut to drop one of my friend to Airport.

I will suggest you can arrive on 13th Night and leave on 16th Evening you will not face any traffic jam. For updates on kumbh mela traffic status and any other query please follow us on http://mahakumbhfestival.com/
