Hi All,

Anybody planning to visit GangaSagar Mela this year? There is a package tour provided by Westbengal Government and starting price is Rs-/ 4200.

Please suggest me the options if i want to travel solo there. I need detailed info for stay and transport and expecting within 2000-3000.

Please let me know if anybody is planning the same and where i can possibly join him / her.

Thanks,
Samba

Yes available, but if we both can go separately without any package will be cheaper for us but i will be then little worried about some safety related issues but not sure.

We can talk offline if you want to finalize this

Dear Shwetasque & soumya_iiitc,

Kindly check that I had already started another thread here regarding Gangasagar Mela 2012;

If you don't mind, we can join in with you as well. Just in case you are planning something together, please feel free to come forward with them. I think hiring a vehicle together would be much economical than the package.

Your response awaited.

Hi,
From my prior experiences about Sagar Mela i would like to suggest you something.
You must be aware about the traffic jam during the Mela time. It takes long hours to clear jam and to reach Hardwood Point or Lot-8.
Another thing you must take into consideration is the Ferry service. During low tides the ferry service ofter ceased due to the silt deposition in the river. After crossing the river you'll have to travel about 30 kms to reach the Mela spot.
It is impossible to return back to Diamond Harbour and again visit the Mela next day.

Lastly, I would suggest you to visit the Mela one day before and book the Bharat Sevasram Sangha's camps. They can be booked at the Kolkata Office of the Sangha.

If you need more information, you can feel free to ask...
