Has anyone done a long boat ride, living on board, down the Ganges or Betwa or other big river ? Is it possible to float from Varanassi to Culcutta - how long would it take and how would you begin to find a craft and captain ? Whos up for it ?

Hi, and welcome to IndiaMike.

If you scroll to the bottom of this page, you'll find a listing of "similar threads." Opening any of those will again feature a list of similar threads at bottom, and so on and so forth. It's an easy way to navigate the site.

The question gets asked more often, and you'll find some relevant threads there. Or, you can try searching the site on some relevant keywords. Good luck with it.

i canoed down 3 rivers in austria-europe about 400 km in 2 weeks, check my web- my signature at the end, and there is a website about a boatride down the river Ganga from Rishikesh to Varanasi, the site is in german language but maybe your browser can translate it into english, google chrome does so, here the link

I suggest you read this before seting out on your trip. Alternatively, you could try this.

Truly an adventurous journey by the German couple. Experiences of a life time. The website it self offers English version. Still here is direct link to the English version (a must read)

Bertl9, thanks for sharing the link.

One can boat from Allahabad to Varanasi in 3 - 4 days, nights spent in tents or in small guest houses near the banks. Travel agencies in Varanasi can organize the same. I would like to do this boat ride some time in future.

Ronak.
