Caroline,
From what most members have said, it is very difficult to book tent sleeping accomodations this close to the beginning. I have messaged many members and they have mostly said try to find a CSing host in Allahabad or just show up and meet people and bring warm enough clothes and sleeping bag to find a place when you are there to sleep. I understand this probably doesn't help, but there are a few other group discussions that might be able to point you in the right direction.

Hey Guys,

So has anything been planned about a meetup for Kumbh Mela. Me and a couple friends are thinking of heading there in a couple days, probably staying with the Rainbow gathering. If anyone wants to meet up let me know and maybe we can try to organize something for couchsurfers.

Posted January 30th, 2013 - 1:53 pm by from Nagpur, India (Permalink)

Hi Carolina

Inside the Kumbh Mela Area there is a Rainbow Gathering camp at the and of sector 7.
It's free and there are many tents for international people that come to visit Kumbh Mela in Allahabad.
It's completely auto manage from the guests. It's a bit rural with some kind of "toilet" and a kind of kitchen.
I have been there a few days ago.
From train station to sector 7 inside the Kumbh mela area the tuk tuk price is: 300 rp.
The night is very humidity so bring with you blankets.

Enjoy Kumbh Mela.
