Description

Discover the holy river and the magic of Old Delhi, with a visit to the mystic riverbank and a view of the ghats from the river. Behind every historical capital there is a great big river. The route is an ode to this river that has been a silent witness to Delhi’s history and is now a recurrent victim of its excesses. Starting from the little lanes of Shahjahanabad, while the city is still sleepy in its proverbial sockspassing along the magnificently formidable walls of the Red Fort we find ourselves on the meditative quiet banks of the Yamuna at Nigambodh Ghat. A boat-tride along its shores – migratory birds circling above the calm waters - unravels the ritualistic devotion with which the Hindus treat the historic river. Despite its current struggles with pollution, the Yamuna is a goddess to the eyes of her devotees. Concluding with a memorable view of the Jama Masjid back through the streets of Old Delhi, the Yamuna Route is a true experience in the stimulating contradictions that is India. During the summer season (Feb.-August), the Yamuna tour does not include the boat ride due to the water condition. The Yamuna tour will still include a fascinating stop at the riverbank and a visit to the nearby cow shelter.
