Life on The Ganges, Varanasi, India

Ganges

Ganges Trips

The mighty Ganges River springs to life in the Himalaya and empties into the Bay of Bengal. It is a sacred river, and the lifeblood of millions of Indians who live alongside it. All along the river people bathe in its waters, to remember their ancestors and to purify themselves. Seeing the swirl of colour along the River Ganges during morning prayers is a sight to behold. On our Ganges tours we take a boat out on the river to witness the extraordinary spectacle on the ghats, the steps leading down to the river.

The river also flows through the oldest continually inhabited city in the world, Varanasi; the city has been a cultural and religious centre in northern India for thousands of years.
