What You Can Expect

Your private day tour of Haridwar begins with pickup at your hotel at 10:30am. Climb into your private, air-conditioned vehicle and meet your dedicated guide, then get underway to the Bara Bazaar. Stroll through the bustling market, lined with shops selling souvenirs and local crafts.

Hop a cable car to the hilltop location of the Mansa Devi Temple, dedicated to the Hindu goddess Mansa Devi, who is thought to grant wishes. Tie a string to the branches of a temple tree if you'd like your wish to be granted. 

The rest of your tour can be tailored to your interests, and your guide can suggest destinations. Tours in Haridwar typically visit the Shantikunj Ashram, the Jain Temple, and the Daksha Mahadev Temple. 

Once evening falls, you'll head for Har Ki Pauri to participate in a Ganga Aarti ceremony. During this ceremony, a Hindu priest offers prayers (aarti) to the Ganga River, believed to be the Divine Mother. During the 45-minute ritual, conducted at sunset, you'll make offerings of flowers and partake in puja with a Hindu priest. Watch locals light large fire bowls on the riverbanks and listen to Sanskrit mantras. 

After the ceremony, you'll be dropped back at your hotel.
