Ganges River Cruises, Tours & Trips
From its source high in the Himalayas, the Ganges ― the great river of the plains of northern India ― slowly courses through one of the world’s most fertile and densely populated regions, calling at picturesque riverside towns and vibrant cities before emptying out into the Bay of Bengal.
Since time immemorial, the Ganges has been the holy river of Hinduism, a focus of religious devotion for tens of millions of people. On your Ganges River cruise, you will be given a colorful and enchanting glimpse of human life and timeless traditions. Visit villages, towns, temples and monuments in this culturally rich and intriguing part of India. Explore Varanasi, the spiritual capital of the subcontinent, and a place of pilgrimage for Hindus, who bathe in the river’s holy waters and perform funeral rites. One of the oldest living cities in the world, Varanasi is the highlight of any Ganges tour.
