Overview

VARANASI


Varanasi also known as Kashi, is located on the bank of river Ganges in Uttar Pradesh, India. It is about 320 Kilometres southeast of the state capital, Lucknow, and 121 Kilometres east of Allahabad. It is one of the holiest sites of Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. 

 

Varanasi as in the eye of Mark Twain in 1897 was-“ Benares is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend, and looks twice as old as all of them put together.” So you can well imagine the relevance of this place being steeped in history and having a historic cultural heritage. 


In about 528 BCE Buddha had given his first sermon in Sarnath setting in motion the wheel of Dharma. Buddhism flourished here after the first sermon done by lord Buddha. It became the hub for Buddhism. In the 8th Century, the importance of the place increased as Adi Shankar established the worship of Shiva as an official sect of Varanasi.  

 

During the middle ages the city continued to be an important centre for Hindu pilgrimage, devotion, mysticism and poetry contributed to the reputation of the place. Epic poems like Ram Charit Manash on the life of Lord Ram life written by Tulsidas is one of them. Bhakti movement started here in Varanasi with great bhakti gurus like Kabir and Ravidas. Guru nanak visits here in 1506 AD for Maha shiva ratri played a major role in the foundation of Sikhism.  

 

And further down the line in the 16th century under the patronage of Mughal emperor Akbar the city had a cultural revival which further led to the city being the cultural fortress of religious study and forms. 

 

Bhumihar Brahmin kings and Maratha are considered the formation of modern Varanasi in the 18th Century. 
Hindus believe that being cremated in the banks of the river Ganga breaks the cycle of rebirth and attain salvation making it a major pilgrimage site. 

 

GAYA

Gaya is a city, municipal corporation and the administrative headquarters of Gaya district and Magadh division of the Indian state of Bihar. Gaya is 116 kilometres (72 mi) south of Patna and is the state's second-largest city, with a population of 470,839. The city is surrounded on three sides by small, rocky hills (Mangla-Gauri, Shringa-Sthan, Ram-Shila, and Brahmayoni), with the Phalgu River on its eastern side.


The city of Gaya is a holy place of Hinduism. It is a city of historical significance and is one of the major tourist attractions in India. Gaya is sanctified in the Jain, Hindu, and Buddhist religions. Gaya district is mentioned in the great epics, the Ramayana and the Mahabharata. Gaya is the location at which Rama, with Sita and Lakshmana, offered pind-daan for his father, Dasharatha. Gaya has since remained a site of key importance for the performance of the pind-daan ritual. It is considered to be one of the most ideal places to perform the Śrāddha which is a Hindu ritual that one performs to pay homage to one's 'ancestors', especially to one's dead parents.

 

Gaya can also be called the birthplace of Buddhism which has become the third largest world religion. Since it was the place where Gautam Buddha had achieved enlightenment and Buddhism was eventually born.

 

 

BODH GAYA

 

Nearby Bodh Gaya ("Buddha Gaya"), so named to distinguish it from the Hindu town centre of Gaya, is one of the four holiest sites of Buddhism and the site where the Buddha attained enlightenment. Marking this seminal moment, Bodh Gaya is one of the four holiest pilgrimage sites of Buddhism, with Lumbini, Sarnath and Kushinagar.
 


Mahabodhi Temple central to the Mahabodhi Temple complex 50-metre-high (160 ft) was first built by the emperor Ashoka in the 3rd century BCE. Mahabodhi Temple Complex at Bodh Gaya was listed as a World Heritage Site by the World Heritage Committee of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

 

Gaya is surrounded by hills on three sides and river on the fourth side. The climate of Gaya is humid subtropical.

 


Situated between Gaya (7 km) and Bodh Gaya (11 km), Gaya Airport is one of two operating international airports in the states of Bihar and Jharkhand. It is the second-busiest airport in Bihar, after Patna's Jay Prakash Narayan Airport. Gaya airport mainly operates seasonal flights for Buddhist pilgrims to Bodh Gaya from Colombo, Sri Lanka; Bangkok, Thailand; Singapore, and Paro, Bhutan.

Day 2 - Full day sightseeing in and around Varanasi
  • Breakfast at the hotel

    Breakfast at hotel and get ready for early morning boat ride on the Ganges.

  • Boating

    To start a day in Varanasi beside the Ganges is to follow the routine people of Varanasi have observed for time immemorial. The common sight of the rising sun bathing the waters in gold and red here becomes special because of the rivers status in the Hindu world. A boat ride on the Ganges is a great way to get a feel of the river Hindus call Ganga Ma, Mother Ganga.

  • Kashi Vishwanath

    The Vishwanath Temple is the best example of Varanasis spiritual heritage as well as its ability to continue under challenges. Dedicated to Shivas Vishveswara (Lord of the Universe) manisfestation, the temple was built in 1776 by Ahalya Bai of Indore. Its towers were plated using 800 kgs of gold—a contribution of Maharaja Ranjit Singh of Lahore. The chance to perform puja at this most sacred of spots is reason enough for pilgrims to come to Varanasi.

  • Gyan Kupor Well (Well of Knowledge)

    Locatednear the Vishwanath Temple, the water from this sacred well is said to give anyone who drinks it an intense spiritual experience. This supernatural property of the water cannot be verified, however, because the well is now covered. It is also believed to act as a vault, containing the original Shiva lingam housed in a temple destroyed by the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.

  • Tulsi Manas and Durga Temple

    The site of this temple marks the place where the poet Tulsi Das lived and wrote the Ram CharitManas, the Hindi version of the Hindu epic Ramayana. Engravings of verses and scenes from Dass book cover the temples walls. Daily performances of Hindu mythological tales are held on the second floor of the temple.

    This Nagara-style temple with multiple sikhara tiers was built in the 18th century by a Bengali maharani. The ochre-colored building houses an image of Durga in its inner sanctum.

  • Banaras Hindu University

    Founded in 1917 by Pandit Malaviya, the Benares Hindu University is a beacon of Varanasi's old fame as one of the Sub-continents greatest centres of scholarship. The university offers degrees in traditional Indian art, music, culture and philosophy, and is of special importance for scholars of Sanskrit. Its major attraction for visitors is the Bharat Kala Bhavan, which exhibits miniature paintings, sculptures dating back to the 1st century and old photographs of Varanasi.

  • Ghats and Evening Aarti

    The ghats of Varanasi are the venue of all the various spectacles associated with Hinduism. At any time, it is peopled with astrologers, mantra-chanting priests and their clients, barbers shaving heads, people stripping down for a dip in the holy waters of the Ganges and, if youre near the cremation ghats, funeral pyres devouring the deceased. A dip in the Ganges waters is not only an act of washing away ones sins; it is to immerse in the belief system handed down by ones ancestors, to do what a grandfather or grandmother might have done in the past. Evenings on Varanasis ghats can cast a spell on you. The elaborate and meticulously performed aarati ceremony and the accompaniment of bhajans(devotional songs) and rhythmic clapping of the devotees charges the evening with energy that takes hold of your senses.

  • Hotel Banaras Kothi

    Overnight stay at the hotel.


Day 3 - Visit Sarnath, Ramnagar Fort and Leisure Time
  • Sarnath

    Sarnath, located only 10 kilometers from the throbbing Varanasi, seems ever ready to host another great philosophers speech. Its large gardens filled with bird and scurrying squirrel press upon the visitors the gift of tranquility. Here, silence needs no prompting. The historical and spiritual significance of the fact that the Buddha delivered his first sermon somewhere in this expanse of gardens makes you more attentive to the surroundings. The senses are equally engaged by the hulking remain of the 34-meter-high Dhamekh Stupa. Although the present edifice dates back to 500 AD, excavations of the site have yielded bricks dating back to 200 BC. The ruins of a large monastery and the partial Ashokan pillar all hark back to the heyday of Buddhism in the area.

  • Hotel Banaras Kothi

    Overnight stay at the hotel.

  • Free time around the city

    After visiting famous sites in and around Varanasi travellers will have some free time on their own.

  • Ramnagar Fort

    Standing majestically across the Ganges from Varanasi, the Ramnagar Fort is an alluring monument. It is the residence of the former Maharaja of Benares, and although it no longer has the bustling atmosphere of a palace, it captives with its trappings of regal life ranging from vintage Fords and Cadillacs to gold-plated elephant howdahs to silver palanquins. The most interesting object on display in this museum is an astrological that besides showing time also shows position of the sun, phases of the moon, and gives astrological information. You can feel like a monarch for a moment standing on the stone platforms on the palaces western end, with the Ganges flowing below and the ancient Varanasi across it.

  • Breakfast at the hotel

    Breakfast at hotel. Early morning drive to Sarnath.Guided tour of the main attractions of Sarnath.


Day 4 - Drive to Bodhgaya and Sightseeing in and around Bodhgaya
  • Bodhgaya, major sites associated with Buddha’s life.

    Bodhgaya: where a young man who had renounced life as a prince undertook severe austerities, meditated for weeks, attained enlightenment and became the Buddha. Whether one thinks of the Buddha as a philosopher or as a god, Bodhgaya marks the site of a most wonderful transformation. Surviving as an indirect link to this event in the Buddhas life is the bo tree growing in the premises of the Mahabodhi Temple. The tree is believed to have come from the tree under which the Buddha attained enlightenment. The spread of the Buddhas teachings around the world is reflected in the Tibetan, Burmese, Japanese, Sri Lankan, Chinese, Bhutanese and Nepali monasteries standing nearby.

  • Gaya's Holy Site

    According to Hindu mythology, Vishnu bestowed on Gaya the power to absolve sins. Hence for Hindus, a visit to Gaya is an opportunity for spiritual cleansing. Gaya is also one of the holiest places for a Hindu to offer pinda(cakes offered to the spirits of ones ancestors). Performing this ritualat Gaya combined with a circuit of Gayas holy sites is believed to liberate one's ancestors from the cycle of rebirth.

  • Vishnupad Temple

    For a Hindu pilgrim the most attractive place in Gaya is the Vishnupad Temple. As the name suggests, it is dedicated to Vishnu, the suffix pad meaning feet. This sikhara-style temple was built in 1787 by Queen Ahalya Bai of Indore. The temple houses a 40 cm footprint on a rock, which Hindus believe was made by Vishnu's foot.

Medical and health information

GENERAL HEALTH

Consider your physical and mental health before you travel, especially if you have an existing medical condition. Consider whether you may be in a vulnerable category for COVID-19. See your doctor or travel clinic to have a basic health check-up, ask if your travel plans may affect your health, and plan any vaccinations you need. Do this at least 8 weeks before you leave.

Vaccination Policy

All travelers on Nepal trips (outside Australia, New Zealand, and the Cook Islands) are required to produce proof of full vaccination against COVID-19. From 1 December 2021, all travelers on trips, including in Australia, New Zealand, and the Cook Islands, are required to produce proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

AIR POLLUTION:

Air quality in Nepal can be poor, especially in winter. Some towns, including Kathmandu, experience very high levels of seasonal smog and heavy particulate pollution. Seek medical advice if you're concerned about the effects of air pollution.

MOSQUITO-BORNE ILLNESSES:

Malaria and Dengue fever are a risk in various parts of Nepal. Mostly, during the monsoon season. Protect yourself against insect bites by wearing clothing that covers as much skin as possible, including repellent while sleeping under a net.

MEDICAL FACILITIES AND TREATMENT:

Healthcare services are unevenly distributed across the country and access to care in some areas may be limited. Healthcare in Kathmandu generally meets international standards but healthcare throughout the rest of the country may be inadequate. Ensure that you have accessible funds to cover upfront fees and adequate travel health insurance, including evacuation. Hospitals in Nepal typically require upfront payment in cash or credit card, regardless if you have travel health insurance.

 

Food and dietary requirements

FOOD IN NEPAL:

In Kathmandu and Pokhara there are plenty of restaurants and cafes for all tastes and budgets. Nepal caters very well to vegetarians and vegans with almost all restaurants having a veg section on the menu.

Accommodation

 

Transport

LUGGAGE LIMITS:

Domestic flights in Nepal have strict weight limits - 10kg of check-in luggage and 5kg of carry-on hand luggage per person is included with your flight ticket. Excess baggage (up to 5kg per person only) will be charged at your own expense.

ROAD TRAVEL:

Roadwork and infrastructure projects can cause significant delays on major roads within cities and highways between destinations. Road travel can also be disrupted due to demonstrations and strikes without warning. Major roadworks are currently ongoing in and around Kathmandu and the roads to Chitwan National Park. Delays, heavy traffic, poor road conditions, and dust are a reality of road travel in Nepal.

MONSOON:

The monsoon season is from June to September and weather conditions can disrupt travel during this time due to flooding and landslides. Disruption of air travel and airport closures are also possible. Be prepared that the itinerary may need to change at short notice.

INTERNAL FLIGHTS:

There have been a number of air accidents in Nepal. We only use airlines that have passed strict safety audits for including internal flights in Nepal, including Buddha Air, Yeti Air & Tara Air.

Money matters

The official currency of Nepal is the Nepali rupee (NPR). Its symbol is often displayed as Rs. ATMs can only be found in Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Bhaktapur. Make sure you carry sufficient cash to cover your needs when traveling outside of these cities. Money exchange facilities are available in Kathmandu, Namche, Pokhara, Chitwan (only outside the park), and Bhaktapur. Credit cards are not widely accepted.

Packing

You are responsible only for the personal clothing and gear listed below. We'll take care of everything else.  A gear check will be completed before you depart for the trail. This list does not include additional clothing/items you may want for travel or for your time off the trail. Below is a list of equipment and documentation that we suggest you take with you. Please use this checklist as a guide when packing for your holiday.

A warm, windproof jacket will be required.

Climate and seasonal information

Nepal's climate varies greatly depending on the season:

JUN - SEP: the monsoon rains (mostly at night) bring landslides in regional areas. Cloud cover often obscures mountain views with rain, mud, and leeches deterring most trekkers at this time of year. Treks running in September can be hot and very humid at lower altitudes.

MAR-APR: Spring brings warm weather and spectacular rhododendron blooms. A popular time to visit and one of the peak times to trek.

OCT - NOV: Clear skies and warm days make autumn the peak season.

DEC - FEB: Winter brings cold temperatures and snow to the mountains. Good trekking, but remember to rug up.

Phone and internet access

Hotels in Kathmandu generally have excellent WiFi connections. Most hotels offer free WiFi in public areas, with some also offering in-room WIFI, sometimes for an additional fee.

Group Leader

The goal of the group leader is to make your travels easier and to help you have the best trip possible. Have a broad general knowledge of the places visited on the trip, including historical, cultural, religious, and social aspects.

Safety

We recommend that you check your government's advice for their latest travel information before departure and ensure that your travel insurance covers you for all destinations and activities on your trip. We strongly recommend the use of a neck wallet or money belt while traveling, for the safe-keeping of your passport, flight tickets, cash, and other valuable items. Your leader will accompany you on all included activities, however, during your trip you'll have some free time to pursue your own interests or relax and take it easy.

Strikes :

Strikes happen on a very frequent basis in Nepal. Most, but not all, of the recent strikes are political in nature and are generally called for the night before with little or no warning. If you arrive as a tourist during a busy political time of year there's a strong chance you might not be able to travel the country as much as you would normally.

 

INSURANCE:

 Travel protection is highly recommended to protect your travel investment from unforeseen circumstances that may occur during or before your trip. Make sure your insurance covers you for your intended activities, including travel and trekking above 3000m if this is included on your itinerary, mountain rescue services, and helicopter evacuation costs.

FESTIVALS:

The weather is not the only factor when thinking about when to go to Nepal. This Himalayan nation has a rich history, which can be discovered through its festivals. Nepal’s festival calendar fills every month of the year with colorful celebrations that offer interesting insights into the local culture. Stumbling onto a local festival may prove to be the highlight of your travels in Nepal – and given the sheer number of them, you’d be unlucky not to. Festivals may be Hindu, Buddhist, animist, or a mix of all three. Traveling in Nepal during Holi Festival (28-29 March 2021, 27-28 March 2022), can at times be dangerous due to revelers consuming intoxicating substances. The day is often associated with physical violence and danger. Traveling during the Hindu festival Diwali (4 November 2021, 24 November 2022) can also be dangerous. During this time there are many displays of fireworks in the streets. It can be very noisy for several days and there is also a lot of pollution caused by the fireworks.

Culture shock

Not all cultures share the same beliefs and values. These differences can cause severe culture shock. Some culture shocks that travelers might find while traveling in Nepal are:

 Don’t assume people speak your language. In cultures where you don’t speak the language, simple tasks suddenly become more complicated- like riding a bus or ordering food at a restaurant.

Some Asian cultures such as Indian, Korean, and Chinese openly spit on the sidewalk same with Nepal.

In some Asian countries such as Thailand, India, Nepal, and some Muslim countries such as Morocco, using water and your hands, not toilet paper, is considered much cleaner than using toilet paper.

There is poverty all over the world but it never seems real until you experience it firsthand. There is a number of homeless beggars and slums in Nepal. There are piles of the garbage next to rivers, people sleeping in gutters, and meat being butchered on a tarp next to the street.

 After your arrival, you will run into people who will offer you a taxi ride or a cheap hotel. When you hop into a car and leave through the gate of the airport you will see the snake driving vehicles. There are dividers but the car might go to the wrong side to overtake, which is very normal here, and therefore no reason to worry.

When in Nepal, don’t expect things to go on time. You will face delays almost in all activities. There is even a phrase “Nepali Time” which is used sarcastically to point out delays in activities.

You might see guys holding hands when they are walking down the street. Guys holding hands in Nepal is a sign of a good friendship and brotherhood.

At monuments, museums, Durbar Squares, etc if someone starts following you and explaining things, they are hiring themselves as your guide and expecting to be paid at the end. Tell them clearly their services are not required pronto, or things are going to get awkward.
