Varanasi

Just over a two-hour flight from Delhi, Varanasi is the sacred heart of India and a point of enlightenment for knowledge seekers and spiritual travelers. It is an important pilgrimage destination and holy cremation site for Hindus, and there are more than one hundred ghats, or steps, that provide access to the Ganges river, which is believed to be the source of life. Varanasi is a place of overwhelming sights, smells and sounds, where the energy vibrates through the stones underfoot.
