Varanasi River Tour

Boat ride on Ganges in Varanasi is very popular, especially at sunrise and sunset.

The banks of rivers are linked with colourful temples and a network of narrow alleys called ghats lead down to the water's edge. Sunrise is a magical time, when the ghats are filled with Hindus bathing and praying before the start of their day - one of the most famous sights in India. The most popular sunset ride is to start at Dasaswamedh Ghat and head up to Manikarnika Ghat to see the cremations in progress, and then return to Dasaswamedh and watch the evening aarti from the boat.
