Enter a world of color, culture, and cherished spiritual tradition on this India river cruise vacation. The holy river of Hinduism, the Ganges, slowly courses through one of the world’s most fertile and populated areas. Along its banks, human life is connected to its waters and you’ll get a glimpse of life away from India’s big cities. See muslin weaving in Kalna and sweet making in Matiari. Stop in Murshidabad for an excursion to Azimganj and Jiaganj-to tour a historic mansion and see a gold and silver making demonstration.
