Journey Overview

Immerse yourself in the spiritual capital of India and one of the oldest cities in the world, Varanasi.

Watch the world wake along the banks of the Ganges, with a dawn boat ride, before navigating this labyrinthine city of over a thousand temples and shrines. Take the stone steps down to the holy river where prayers are chanted to rhythmic drumming, as lanterns float by in an atmospheric Aarti ceremony. From dawn to dusk, Varanasi promises the sacred and spectacular.
