Full description
Start your day bright and early with a convenient pick-up service from your accommodation in Varanasi at 5:30AM. After a short meet and greet with your driver you will set off on your adventure. Hop aboard your private, air-conditioned vehicle and proceed to Assi Ghat. Upon your arrival in Assi Ghat, you will get the unique opportunity to witness the morning ritual of Aarti. Take part in one of India's most sacred ceremonies as you witness saints, conducting the ceremony whilst holding soil lamps and chanting mantras.  After a spiritual morning, you will proceed for a boat ride starting from Assi Ghat and heading toward Manikarnika Ghat. While you sail on the boat, witness devotees performing morning prayer to the rising sun. During your boat tour, you will also be able to visit Manikarnika Ghat, the Hindu cremation ground.  Continue on your tour and walk through the lanes of Varanasi and witness the culture and traditional heritage.
