Introduction

From its source high in the Himalayas, to the point where it flows into the Bay of Bengal, you will visit a selection of holy places along the Ganga and experience the deep spirituality that this mighty river offers to so many people. These are some of the most extraordinary, chaotic and mesmerising places on earth which will undoubtedly provide you with an experience of a lifetime.
