Au programme

This special walk aims at giving an insight about the significance of Varanasi as a place for Death & Liberation, where elderly people come to spend their later years just to get an opportunity to die and get liberated from the recycle of birth & death.
Visit the cremation ghat and learn about the death rituals in Hinduism there, may be you get an opportunity to see an Aghori sadhu performing rituals at the cremation to attain spiritual gains and and finally visit an Ashram and meet an Aghori Sadhu who has renounced his worldly life and living the life of an ascetic since last 3 decades. You can interact with him, ask questions if you have any any and learn about the spiritual journey.
Other things to note
We will have to walk down to the cremation ground which will include walking up and down the stairs from the road to the river bank.

The Tour is highly informative considering the history of varanasi and India in general. Next to a general introduction about Indian politics, culture and religion we gained lots of insights about the Indian culture of funerals. Visiting the sadhu is an impressive experience and offers insights about this way of life. Both are completely patient about answering any questions! Great experience one should not miss in varanasi

Just WOW! Fascinating, not at all creepy, surprisingly matter-of-fact, life-affirming... so many ways to describe it! This is an experience not to be missed. Kunal is a great story-teller and a lovely person. We would NEVER have had anything close to this experience on our own. We are still shaking our heads in disbelief at the doors Kunal opened for us, literally and figuratively! Don't hesitate to book this! Thank you, Kunal!

Kunal is very professional and high level, he is highly educated and enjoys being a tour guide. Kunal is very sophisticated and a great tour guide for other professionals or people who want to learn actual knowledge about Varanasi, culture, etc. Kunal was also very concerned for my well being and ensured that I had a safe ride home. I would highly recommend him as well for any solo travelers, as well as solo Women travelers who may have a hard time finding a tour guide that they feel comfortable and safe with.

We didn't know what to expect in Varanasi. It is a crazy city to say the least. Kunal made the trip. He knows everything about the city. He did not only grow up there but knew every detail. He covered topics of religion (every religion), politics, culture, food, the streets, the people, trade... and on and on. I am a very critical "tourist". I want to know many things and ask 1000 questions, Kunal had 1001 answers ready. We booked a tour and got an experience we will tell our kids about. Nuf said.

Kunal was very flexible to change the meeting point to suit my location. He was prompt, professional, very knowledgeable, gracious host who has good connections, stories and information. The cremation ground we were to go to did not have any activity, so in just a few moments he was on the phone to one of the hotels that runs a boat for transport for their guests and got them to pull over and pick us up and bring us to another location. Every part of this tour is respectful and informative and an amazing experience I will never forget

Mind blowing experience. You will learn about the cremation process, the meaning of it and the history behinds it. There’s also a chance to speak with a Sodhu, which you can’t find anywhere else. We booked the tour at the very last minute and Kunal was kind enough to accommodate us. We would recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about Indian culture and Hinduism.
