Day 1 Varanasi
This city encapsulates colourful India. Life and death collide on the shores of the Ganges and history and culture seem imbued in the cobblestones of the narrow alleyways. Enjoy a city tour then cruise down the Ganges at night to witness a moving Aarti ceremony.

Day 2 Varanasi/Sarnath
Learn about traditional silk weaving, and then spend the afternoon exploring the ruins of Sarnath, the site where Buddha performed his first sermon.
