Ghats are about 20mins (by trishaw) if crowds are not heavy. A walk thro' the old town is recommended AND necessary to reach the ghats. We visited swimming ghat & cremation ghat - enough!!

A guide is ESSENTIAL or you will get lost in the old town. Some say Ganges boat tour is best way to view ghats - think it's more a "touristy con"??- river was too high & prevented boats when we visited. However, I suspect we saw more in greater detail on foot rather than from a boat

The Ghat is approximately 20 min. away if there is less congestion in the old town. its advised to travel by car having a local guide to help, its quite possible that u might get lost, if chasing a lock transport it should roughly cost 100-150 as that can b bargained as the rickshaw does not travel on meter basis.

The ghats on the river are a 20-30 min tuktuk ride from the hotel...I cant remember how much I paid to get there but when I wanted to see the sunrise I just went out to the main hotel gate and they flagged one down for me.

Thank you both! What was your personal experience of the holy city? Did you enjoy Varanasi as a whole?
