Rest for while and we are ready to get celebrate Ganga as we walk along banks of holy River. A continuous stretch of 87 ghats are waiting for you However around 25 are iconic and worth some time we will cover few of them today. we will begin our Ghat hoping from Dasawamedh Ghat it is the heart of the action and the top attraction in Varanasi. One of the oldest and holiest Varanasi ghats, A touristy thing to do is take a boat ride along the river highly recommend to A walk along the ghats is more fascinating experience as you pass through chilling Harishchandra Ghat (Burning or cremation Ghat) , Darbhanga Ghat is a favorite! As It’s one of the most visually appealing, and architecturally impressive eventually eventually Assi Ghat where the Ganges River meets the river Assi Ghat at the extreme southern end of the main ghats, hence it’s not as crowded , scenic and peaceful. By evening We return back in Dasaswamedh Ghat either by boat or walk to attend the renowned The Maha Ganga Aarti (7pm) from the Steps or in the Boats. Over night at Hostel.
