Take a Ganges Boat Ride on a holiday with Wendy Wu Tours
Varanasi is India’s spiritual city, and it is along the holy river Ganges, mother Ganga, that most of the action takes place. Taking to the waters at dawn you will experience a unique sight – as the sun rises, the Hindu locals and pilgrims come together on the riverfront ghats to pray, perform rituals and a wash away their sins in the river before going about their days. It is also a great way to appreciate Varanasi’s colourful architecture – the palaces and ashrams rising up behind the ghats are a wonderful sight and a glimpse at the city’s long history. Seeing and experiencing this morning rite and the beauty of the city is one of Varanasi’s must-do activities.
