what to expect

Start the day by meeting your guide in your the hotel lobby. Ride in a Tuk-Tuk from your hotel to Varanasi.

Situated at the confluence of Ganga and Asi rivers, Assi Ghat is the southernmost Ghat in Varanasi, where pilgrims bathe before paying their homage to Lord Shiva in the form of huge lingam situated under a peepal tree. Assi Ghat also constitutes the southern end of conventional city.

Start your walking tour from here with your private guide. Enjoy the local interaction with Sadhus, Priests and pilgrims and their stories while you walk from one ghat to another.

Ghats in Varanasi are riverfront steps leading to the banks of the River Ganges. The city has 87 ghats. Most of the ghats are bathing and puja ceremony ghats, while a few are used exclusively as cremation sites.

Most Varanasi ghats were built after 1700 AD, when the city was part of Maratha Empire. The patrons of current ghats are Marathas, Shindes (Scindias), Holkars, Bhonsles, and Peshwes (Peshwas). Many ghats are associated with legends or mythologies while many ghats are privately owned.

From Dashashwamedh Ghat you'll walk into the streets of old Varanasi to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the crowded bazaars before you take a break at a silk shop. Enjoy the demonstration of silk making, and other ancient techniques of fabric making.

Your guide will drop you back to the hotel in Tuk Tuk at the end.
