SUN RISES OVER VARANASI ON A WINTER MORNING


morning sunrises are refreshing just as the sunsets are soothing.
getting up early is an humongous task while on a holiday, but a worthwhile experience. I would rather stay awake until morning light than to sleep to get up.

In the above pic, sun rises over the religious capital of India, Varanasi on a winter morning.

The early morning boat ride is one of the best experiences of Varanasi, One arrives at the ghats early in the morning say 5 to bargain your boat ride. The ride lasts for an hour or more untill you see the sun rise and people thronging the banks for a early morning holy dip. Once the early light creeps in you realise that the whole tourist population are on the river too.
