Varanasi Extension Overview
Lift your spirits with three incredible days in Varanasi
Explore holy Varanasi - an atmospheric blend of temples, river ghats and bazaars. Sail on the Ganges at dawn for a magical experience as the sun rises over pilgrims absolving sins in the river. Explore the city and nearby Sarnath with a driver and private car, and wander independently through the bright bustle of the backstreets of Benares. Visiting Shiva's city is a must on any visit to India.
