Varanasi during Ganga Mahotsav

Jump to last reply

basically with my schedule, the only time I would be able to arrive in Varanasi is either in the middle of Ganga Mahotsav or I might be able to delay my travels to arrive a day or two right after it ends. Unfortunately this will be a short visit to Varanasi (3 or 4 days) and most people tell me to just come and enjoy the festival, however I think I would prefer Varanasi when there inst a million other visitors and am also concerned with accommodation availability restaurants etc.

My questions is how many people will still be lingering in Varanasi the first days after the festival ends? or will the city be back to normal pretty quickly?

I also should note I am a photographer and originally intended a more mellow visit trying to take my time and get to know the sadhus & aghori baba before trying to take their portraits.

any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
