Arrive Varanasi and transfer to your Homestay, Aashray.

The culture of Varanasi is closely associated with the holy river  Ganga. The city has been a cultural centre of North India for several thousand years, and has a history that is older than most of the major world religions. In the Rigveda, the city is referred to as Kashi, the “City of Light”.

Proceed to evening arti on the river.

Farm grown, Home cooked Fresh Dinner and Overnight at Homestay.

Early morning boat excursion on the river Ganges, a ferry pilgrimage from ghat to ghat. People bathe early in the morning to offer the prayers to the rising sun.

Pious Hindus believe that to die in Kashi and to be cremated on banks of the Ganges is to attain release from the cycle of birth and death.

This is followed by a walk in the old lanes and by lanes where the original culture of Benaras still survives in nooks and corners. The adventurous can surely try the local flavorful food and delicacies.

Afternoon, proceed to a tour of Sarnath, the seat where Gautama Buddha gave his first sermons to his 5 disciples after his enlightenment. A visit to the Sarnath Archeological Museum to see Ashokan Lion Capital and other edits is an opportunity not to be missed.
