Vivid Varanasi

Friends tell me they are off to India, and that one of the places they must-see is the Holy city of Varanasi, the spiritual capital for Hindu pilgrims. Instantly, colorful images of that incredible city – it sits on the banks of the Ganges River in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh – flood my memory from a recent visit. The sights there remain so vivid, but relating those experiences to someone else falls rather flat.

But, do listen to my interview with tour guide Sanjay Nepal on Travel Writers Radio for a taste of what travellers will find there. His description is far better than mine could ever be as he has lived and worked there for many years.
