Culture from an Indian perspective
Our journey so far has given us the opportunity to see and understand so much about the Indian culture. A lot of activity around the Ganga is rooted in religious and spiritual practices. Worshiping idols, making offerings, and participating in ceremonial rituals are all among the many activities that take place on the banks of the Ganga.
We’re really blessed to be able to raft the entire range of the Ganga because we get to see the differences in how each city connects with the Ganga.
“Every village, town and city along the Ganga have a connection to what they believe in terms of how they should treat their mother Ganga, how to give to Ganga and how they should live and practice along her shores. We have been to two of the most holy cities along the Ganga, Hardiwar and Varanasi (Benaras), and ceremony is well and truly alive.” – Lisa te Heuheu
