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, and wander independently through the bright bustle of the backstreets of Benares. Visiting Shiva's city is a must on any visit to India.
