During a dawn boat ride along the ghats in Varanasi, India, I witnessed devoted Hindus bathing in the Ganges River. Many save for years to make the trip and are joyful at finally being able to touch the river they know as Mother Ganga. Despite being severely polluted, they flock to the ghats every morning to bathe in the river, make offerings to it, and even drink from it.

I’ve seen the Ganges. More importantly, I’ve SMELLED it. 2/10 would not recommend.
Have to agree Latisha. It didn’t smell in Varanasi, but I did witness bodies being dumped into it. Closest I got to it was in a boat.
