"Ghats at Dawn" Varanasi Things to Do Tip by Willettsworld
Varanasi Things to Do: 269 reviews and 463 photos
Even though it was only 7am when I arrived at the ghats, they are still a hive of activity with people bathing, washing clothes, selling food etc. There's a stillness in the air in terms of wind and sound with a slight mist adding to the atmosphere. Our driver on the way from out hotel told us that many people get up at 4.30am in order to bathe at daybreak and then go back home to do other things before having breakfast at 9am. Dawn is certainly the best time to come to the ghats to either take in a boat trip, wander along the ghats on foot or to just simply stop and watch. There's many tourists doing any one of these activities and this marks India at its most traditional and so is very photogenic.
