Getaway to Varanasi
One of the world’s oldest continually inhabited cities and one of Hinduism’s seven holy cities, Varanasi is a hub of philosophy, theosophy, medicine and learning. It is now a chaotic mélange of pilgrims, tourists and trident-toting sadhus, cycle rickshaws, boats and ghats. It is not an overstatement or cliché to say that there truly is nowhere else quite like Varanasi. It is impossible to leave unstirred, unshaken or unmoved.
Kamalan Getaways are brief thematic sojourns into the inner reaches of India. They can be short weekend travel programs out of large cities like Delhi and Bangalore. Painting an intricate picture of India and its nuances, Getaways give you the opportunity for a fascinating cultural immersion that you wouldn’t normally get to be a part of – all, over a weekend or a little longer.
