HolidayIQ traveller Prashant tells you all about it, "Varansi is a mysterious place and it has so many different flavors to it. Roads are narrow and city is over crowded but still it has its own charm. I have visited Ghats in the morning and stayed till Ganga aarti. A boat ride is a must do activity and please take only manually driver boats as motor driven boats are too noisy. As you move away from busy Ghats, you can feel the silence and strange calmness in the air."
