Go on a spiritual journey as you undertake the boat ride on the holy river Ganga and observe the religious rituals being conducted on the Ghats of Varanasi, one of the oldest cities in the world.
The guided Ganga Aarti boat ride lasts for 4-5 hours and can be opted for in the morning or evening. The start time varies according to the prevalent weather, sunrise time and the time when the arti is conducted. During summers it starts around 5 am and in winters it is 6:30 am. Similarly the evening arti might take place at 5:15 pm in winters and 6:15 pm in summers. The trip would get going from the ghat closest to your hotel by the river. Else if you are staying inland, the ride begins from Assi Ghat and takes you along the stretch of the river where the ghats are located. The evening trip also includes a visit to the cremation grounds at Manikarnika Ghat. You would be able to have a panoramic view of the rituals as the aarti is conducted on the river’s edge amid much fanfare and religious fervour. The glittering lamps and reverberating chants of the hymns evoke spiritual sentiments as you glide by in the boat.
