Varanasi

A sacred city for Hindus and thought by many to be the place where Buddhism formed as a religion, Varanasi leaves an imprint on the hearts and minds of visitors regardless of their creed, race, or religion.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Dhamek Stupa and Baba Black Sheep. Go for a jaunt from Varanasi to Chandauli to see Chandraprabha Wildlife Sanctuary about 1h 25 min away. And it doesn't end there: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, look for gifts at Varanasi Remembrances, don't miss a visit to Banaras Ghats, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Sankat Mochan Hanuman Temple.

In October, daytime highs in Varanasi are 38°C, while nighttime lows are 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
