Welcome to Volunteering in India.

Varanasi Trip

Varanasi Pilgrimage Trip

Varanasi is located on the banks of the river Ganges. As the spiritual capital of India, the city draws Hindu pilgrims who bathe in the Ganges River’s sacred waters and perform funeral rites.

Hindus believe that one who is graced to die on the land of Varanasi would attain salvation and freedom from the cycle of birth and re-birth. 

Varanasi is known for its Ghats, embankments made in steps of stone slabs. With the In-depth Cultural tour Varanasi Tour from Delhi, you have a 4-day tour. Our staff member will be with you along the way.

This program is designed to give you a meaningful travel and volunteering opportunity as well as connect you to the culture.
