Ganges Boat Ride

Ganges Boat Ride

The ancient ghats that run along the banks of the holy Ganges are at their most vibrant as the sun rises. The best way to experience this colourful and clamorous sight is from the river itself. As the sun rises the vast stretches of ghats become packed with worshippers wading into the waters of the Ganges to perform puja with prayers, songs and ritual bathing. Whilst dawn is the best time to take a boat trip, the early evening is also a good time to venture out. Release a lotus flower candle into the Ganges and watch the nightly ganga aarti ceremony from your row boat.
