A boat ride in the river in the morning and also in the evening is magical. The water is now clean, the river is mighty. The view of the ghats from the river, enchanting.

Have a boat ride covering all the ghats of Ganga river and must see the Ganga Arti in the evening.
Preferably stay at one of the haveli's on the bank of Ganga to really enjoy the sunrise and oter activities happenings.

This is really a gift to be here with family and intake the real beauty and observe the greatness of Ganges.

During the morning time (around 8-10), of you happen to get a chance, do go for a boat ride..

You could see numberous birds flying here and there and circling out boats..

Neatly maintained and really much effort is taken by the government to keep the ghats clean and good.

For boat ride ( motor boat) the cost will be around 1500-2000 for about 1 hour..

It varies depending upon the season and rush..

During Dev Diwali timings, the cost would go to peak (around 7000-10000)..

Divine experience and in explainable feeeling..

No words to express..
If you happen to visit here and see the great Ganges, then do understand just one thing

Did both the evening and sunrise boat rides, each very different. Hard to put in words - only to be experienced and each one will feel different.

To get a great experience take a morning boat ride & watch the sunrise on the fast flowing river. It’s also a solemn experience to watch the evening Arti performed on the river bank . To avoid the crowds assembled on the banks , it is best to experience it from the upper deck of the Alaknanda cruise ship .This is an air conditioned vessel with a seating capacity of 60. Booking is to be done online in advance @ 900/- per person for the evening cruise. Very clean boat with clean bio toilets . They also serve complementary coffee & biscuits.

Take a row boat and move up the river. Best at twilight. The Ghats look great from the river. The "aarati" at Dasheshwamedh Ghat is something not to be missed. More information on Papumashi the Nomad -----The Great Gangetic Plain and The Kumbh Mela.
