This time we find that the Gats are well maintained and water is clean though inspite of past rainy season.

All the ghats are very beautiful. I took a auto to Assi ghat and from there walked to Dasashwamedh Ghat in the morning. The river Ganga at the side I was feeling so blessed. It took me 40 minutes from Assi ghat to Dasashwamedh ghat....More

Witnessing the Ganga aarti is a must do, making the visit this ghat a must do. It is also the most crowded ghat. I would recommend visiting here only for the aarti.

When you go in the boat you get to see all the ghats. catch a motor boat at Kedar Ghat, he charges about 150/- per person. He shows all the ghats and brings you back to the same place. Preferred time is around 6:00 pm.
