India on the waters

Cruise the Ganges in style

123Travel owner manager, Cheryl Ryan, has been travelling to India for 12 years taking small group tours. Her love of this country is expressed the minute you talk to her. She has travelled to almost all of India and has established her own charity over there supporting a local hospital.

Cheryl says “Cruising the Ganges is a relaxed and elegant way to discover the local culture, food and people of India”.

There are two great cruises to do:

The Lower Ganges

The Ganges is the longest river in India. The river is considered sacred and holds religious significance. The Ganges is originated from the Gangotri and has many temples settled along its banks. It’s a powerful hub of religious activity, culture and history.

See the best the Lower Ganges River has to offer with our 8-day cruise. Visit different mosques, palaces, temples and interact with the locals.

The Upper Ganges

The Ganges is the longest river in India. The river is considered sacred and holds religious significance. The Ganges is originated from the Gangotri and has many temples settled along its banks. It’s a powerful hub of religious activity, culture and history.

Varanasi, said to be the oldest inhabited city on the planet is the most sacred city of Hinduism and a place of overwhelming beauty at the same time poignantly moving with its cremation ghats. Varanasi is surely the goal of any ‘passage to India’ and at the other end of the holy river stands Kolkata, in all its Raj-like magnificence. Between lies several of the most important Buddhist sites including Sarnath, Nalanda and Bodh Gaya and cities great and small. And between urban centres and great pilgrim sites are expenses of empty river teaming with bird life, not to mention the Gangeatic dolphin.
