Ballia is in Uttar Pradesh province of India.

Get around[edit]



  • Donkey fair. A large fair famous for being India's biggest bargaining bonanza event where thousands of traders come to buy the donkeys and other animal at cheap rates. Looks just like the movies of the old world. Most animals here are purchased by contractors who use them for transporting materials. The fair has over 60,000 donkeys, all colourfully dressed up in ribbons and anklets to get your attention. It is definitely a fun and unique experience. It is tempting to buy one just for the sake of participation, and trade it to some local merchant.  edit



While in Ballia, you can try out some of the local favorites (Baati-Chokha would be the best), quite different from your normal naan and curry.



Accommodations are fairly reasonable, you just need to look around.
