Overview

GangaSagar Yatra with Half Day Kolkata Tour –02 Days

GangaSagar: 

Gangasagar Tour Fair is the second biggest congregation of Hindu pilgrims after the Kumbha Mela. The Gangasagar Mela is observed annually and only on Sagardwip (Sagar Island). Every year during Makar Sankranti pilgrims from all over the country come to take a holy dip at the confluence of the river Ganges and Bay of Bengal, followed by offering prayers at the Kapil Muni Temple. This temple is immersed in legendary tales and is highly revered among devotees.

Sagar Island or Gangasagar is an island in the Ganges delta, lying on the continental shelf of Bay of Bengal about 100 kms south of Kolkata. Gangasagar is a charming tourist destination, which attracts both pilgrims and adventure lovers. Located on an island in the Sundarbans, Gangasagar offers the charms of an un-spoilt beach on the estuary of the river Ganges. Gangasagar offers acres of silver sand and clear blue sky, and the calm sea for visitors who would like to spend their weekend in tranquillity.

This island has acres of dazzling silver sand and clear blue sky, Gangasagar is still relatively unknown and thus, unexploited. Gangasagar also finds itself in the poetry of Rabindranath Tagore. The lighthouse at Gangasagar has great views of this beach and is perfect for watching the sunrise and sunset.

 

Kolkata:

Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) is the capital of India’s West Bengal state. Founded as an East India Company trading post, it was India’s capital under the British Raj from 1773–1911. Today it’s known for its grand colonial architecture, art galleries and cultural festivals. It’s also home to Mother House, headquarters of the Missionaries of Charity, founded by Mother Teresa,

Known as the ‘City of Joy’, Kolkata holds an important place in the economy, politics and culture of India. The capital of West Bengal, Kolkata is one of the four metropolitan cities in India and has retained its quintessential charm despite modernization.

‘What Bengal thought today, India thought tomorrow’, is a famous line associated with the city for having produced some of the greatest thinkers, artists, film makers and writers like Rabindranth Tagore, Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay and Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay and Satyajit Ray. Indeed, ideas in Kolkata in the fields of art, literature, cinema and theater have provided inspiration to rest of the country.

How many people are typically on your tours?
Our private tours are only for the people you book for. If you are alone, it will just be you and your guide. If you are a couple, just the two of you and your guide, and so on.

Can I join another person/group’s tour?
You cannot join another person/group’s tour. We only offer and advertise private tours, and the majority of our clients book with us for this very reason, so we are unable to add additional people to their tours.

We have tours literally all year round, in all weather and even on the holidays. Please contact us, if you plan to book on holidays and are not sure about whether we offer anything during those days. We pretty much always find a solution, although we might require you to be a bit flexible sometimes.

To make sure a tour is available, we recommend to book as early as possible and prepay. First booking gets served first.
Can I schedule a tour at any time of day?
Theoretically we can schedule the tour for any time of the day. We just wanted to reduce the complexity of our booking system and therefore have recommended start times. Please let us know, if you wish to start at another time in the comments section of your booking form or when you contact us via email. Generally we will be happy to start at any time of the day from 8am until 8pm but it depends on the availability.
