aboard the R/V BENGAL GANGA
The name Ganges conjures all of India’s exotic fascination. Considered a living goddess in the Hindu religion, the Ganges is also the daily lifeblood that provides food, water, and transportation to millions who live along its banks. Now you can travel this extraordinary river in considerable comfort aboard the exclusively chartered 28-cabin R/V Bengal Ganga.
Over eight leisurely days you will experience the vibrant, complex tapestry of diverse architectural expressions, historical narratives, religious beliefs, and fascinating cultural traditions that thrive along these banks. As you sail, you will be treated to the daily rituals of village life and the unspoilt countryside that are a part of India seldom visited by travellers. This is an experience for the culturally curious, for photographers of unforgettable landscapes, and for adventurous travellers who relish authentic moments. The experience of the Ganges River is beguiling, complex, infinite, and profound.
