    Ganga & Ghats of Varanasi

You will be picked up from your Varanasi hotel about an hour before the dawn so that by the time of dawn, you reach the Assi Ghat and board the boat. Spiritually enlightening and fantastically photogenic, Varanasi is at its brilliant best by the ghats, the long stretch of steps leading down to the water on the western bank of the Ganges. In the assistance of our expert will make your stay in Varanasi a refreshing and an unforgettable one. You will observe the living traditions of one of the oldest religion. One hour boat ride from Assi Ghat to Manikarnika ghat will be conducted to enjoy beautiful & colorful view of River Ganga in mellow light and watch pilgrims to perform morning -prayer to rising sun. You will be amazed by the color palette that surrounds you like the red and golden color of the water of the Ganges, temples, ‘ashrams’ and pavilions.

During the boat ride observe people participating in Akhada, ancient Indian art of fighting, practiced bare feet on mud. You will be shown Manikarnika Ghat (the burning ghat), the most auspicious place for the Hindus to be cremated. After stepping down at Manikarnika Ghat, you will be walking along several ghats and pass through narrow alleys of Varanasi. In this pilgrimage city, the long series of ghats that border the western shore of the Ganges is the main attraction of Varanasi. Most of the ghats serve for bathing and several for cremation. Dawn is the best time to visit the ghats, when the light is soft and the pilgrims come to offer the puja at sunrise and dusk, when the Ganga Arti takes place at the Dasaswamedh Ghat. A large number of people take bath at these ghats and offer prayer in the temples, which are built on the edge of the river. During walking through the narrow lanes, explore Varanasi, a land of literature, culture, aesthetics, art and extreme spirituality. This whole excursion will take about four hours. After
