Varanasi Rickshaw Tour

Varanasi is the oldest living city of India and is the center of Indian civilization and spirituality. It has many names like Kashi, Banaras etc and is known as the city of Lord Shiva. Old part of Varanasi has very narrow lanes dotted with thousands of Temples, houses and old Ashrams. Most of the old town is absolutely inaccessible by cars, buses. So, Cycle Rickshaw can however be the best option to explore Varanasi.

This is the photo taken by me of one of the rickshaw drivers in Varanasi. There are many rickshaw drivers in Varanasi and almost all sightseeing places in Varanasi are accessible by Rickshaw. So, easily cycle rickshaw tour can be organized in Varanasi at affordable price
