e) Vehicles are allowed to a short distance from Kapil Muni Temple. Plenty of Cycle vans are available to take you to the Gangasagar bathing spot (about 2.00 KM)-charges are Rs. 15.00 per passenger one way. These are quite comfortable for those who cannot walk 2.00 KM.

f) Latest update on travel to Sagar Island dated 30.10.12: If you are travelling in family of 4 adult persons, to reach ganga sagar one of the most convenient way is to  fix up indica/indigo from your hotel point. At present indica Ac charges are 12Rs/km and indigo AC are 14 Rs/km plus 80Rs for Kakdwip parking. Kakdwip is around 83 km one way.It take 2.5hrs.Once you reach kakdwip, better to take local rehri(jugar), available on car parking itself. There is Sulabh shauchalya( paid lavatory) at taxi parking/bus parking. From here onwards you will no where find lavatory.From taxi parking take conveyance of motorised rehri( jugar) which will charge 5 rs max per person to take you about 100m towards ticket point for ferry to sagar island.The ticket for ferry above 5 years is still Rs6.50/person.Better to take or keep with you hat/sunscreen to protect from bright sun light there as you wait for ferry to come near gate.
 
Ferry will take about 30 minutes to reach sagar islands. There near exit, donot take any rehri who will come there. Nearby only book one taxi/marutivan/sumo. For 5 adults family book Van for Rs 700/- to & fro & it is safe and time saving.Buses will take about 1-2 hr sas compare to van which will take hardly 45 minutes. From van parking,  again rehri( jugar) should be booked. It should be bargained. For 4 adult and 2 kids they may agree at Rs250.- to & fro from bathing point. For changing cloth near bathing point in sea, there is a makeshift moveable covered arrangement which charges Rs 10/person. From there after bathing go to kapil muni ashram about 200m away from bathing point. It is advisable to take local rehri( jugar) if you have old persons with you as it will be very difficult for aged persons to walk in sand stretch near bathing point.
