Varanasi Experience - Independent
Confronting, climactic, and revered by millions of Hindus, Varanasi is one of India’s most defining experiences. Towering temples and smoldering ghats (riverside steps) compose an eerie and enigmatic riverside, local residents wash their garments in the Ganges waters alongside the atoning faithful, and Hindu holy men offer up their prayers amidst the sporadic cheers erupting from makeshift cricket tournaments playing out across the boardwalks.
Independent travel, without the stress. Peregrine’s Independent Experiences are a range of short ‘mini tours’ that you can add to other Experiences or as an extension to a longer tour, to craft your perfect holiday itinerary. Independent Experiences are for 1-3 travellers, come accompanied by a local Peregrine guide and depart daily. /experiences
