    Day 2: Varanasi Local Sightseeing

    Stop At: Manikarnika Ghat, Ghasi Tola Road, Varanasi 221001 India
    At dawn, visit the sacred Ganges for a boat ride. Every morning at dawn, hundreds of worshipers can be seen bathing in the sacred waters. The great river banks are lined with an endless chain of stone steps — the ghats — that stretch from one end of the city to the other. Believing that anyone who dies in the river of life in Varanasi gains freedom from the cycle of birth and death, the site has become a haven for the sick and aged waiting out their final days. The smoke that billows from the crematoriums on the edge of the river gives testimony to their final release from life's earthly confines. Your boat docks at Manikarnika (cremation) Ghat. On any given day, anywhere from a few dozen to a few hundred corpses are cremated here; the ghat is assiduous with activity as the cremated bodies threw up smoke and fire.
    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
