    Post breakfast, set course on a gentle paced walk through the world's largest, temporary tented city where the Akharas have their presence. An Akhara is a place of practice with facilities for boarding, lodging and training on the path of spiritual enlightenment. The Juna Akhara, with over 400,000 sanyasis is perhaps one of the largest sects present at the Kumbh Mela. They are also considered to be the most fascinating.

    The sadhus are divided into four major categories - Nagas (Sanyasis), Vairagi (Mundies), Udasi and Nirmala (Nanak Sahi). These four categories are then further organized into different Akharas. There exists a predetermined order which the various Akharas follow during the Shahi procession on the specific bathing days.

    A vast majority of the members of this Akhara are Naga Babas (naked ascetics). Considered to be the defenders of the Sanatan Dharma, these sanyasis march naked, covered in holy ash during the bathing rituals at the Kumbh. This elite brotherhood of naga sadhus and sanyasis are regarded as the "holiest of holy men" by the Hindu believers and much of the attention of those arriving at the Kumbh revolves around them.

    Return to the camp for lunch and some time at leisure.

    Post lunch, you may choose to enjoy the amenities at the camp or relax with a wellness treatment on site or indulge in making special offerings (pujas) to the gods as per the astrological semblance in the cosmos.
