Early morning rays of sun hit the river Ganges, making it a beautiful sight. Pilgrims, devotees and visitors throng Varanasi, to get on to the Ghats. Boats are the main means of transport here and three boats carrying people are set sail and its hardly 6.30AM. This ride takes one thru the bathing ghats and burning ghats. Morning boat ride on the Ganges across the ghats is a popular visitors attraction.

Location: Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India
