Dev Deepavali Festival

The Dev Deepavali ("The Diwali of the Gods" or "Festival of Lights of the Gods") is the festival celebrated in Varanasi. Dev Deepawali is an experience worth remembering. During this celestial manifestation, every corner of the city comes alive with bright colors and glowing diyas. It takes place fifteen days after Diwali. The steps of all the ghats on the riverfront of the Ganges River, from Ravidas Ghat at the southern end to Rajghat, are lit with more than a million earthen lamps (diyas) in honour of Ganga, the Ganges, and its presiding goddess. The gods are believed to descend to Earth to bathe in the Ganges on this day. The festival is also observed as Tripura Purnima Snan.

  • Dev Deepawali in Benares is an experience worth remembering for me, personally. I always wanted to visit, internalize the spiritual magic and it happened. Thanks to WOW for making my dream come true. It was absolutely the way I had dreamt it would be! During this celestial demonstration, every nook and corner of the city came alive with bright colours and glowing diyas/lamps. It looked as though the stars had come to unite with the Earth, making the city all the more alluring! People in Banaras believe that on the day of Dev Deepawali, the Gods descended to Benares to bathe in the Ganga. The Ganga aarti of Benares is performed on the banks of the river in the evening, a breathtaking sight and an incredible exposure!!! Thank you WOW for the great itinerary and the group for the cooperation and affectionate bonding. Riti was an amazing and extra special buddy, she was omnipresent to give the girls a helping hand and shepherd us safely through all events. If Dev Diwali is on your mind...just do it with WOW ... Women On Wanderlust!!

Customized Trip
  • What does twin share price mean?

    Twin share price is the price mentioned against a package and it refers to the cost per head for a double sharing accommodation. If you'd like to upgrade to Single Occupancy, please select this at the time of checkout
  • Regarding the hotels, what does OR SIMILAR refer to?

    OR SIMILAR means that the hotel booked might be different from the hotel mentioned in the itinerary. 90% of the time we book the hotel that’s mentioned, but under few situations it might differ due to on-the-ground factors. So we pick an alternate hotel, but always in the same class and area of the city.
  • What size can my suitcase be?

    Generally, check in bag should have dimensions not exceeding 30″x 21″x11″ and weight not exceeding 22 kg. Carry-on luggage should not exceed the dimensions of 12″x11″ x6″ and weight not exceeding 7 kg. Though, because of differing terms of various airlines you must check your ticket copy and baggage allowance once your ticket is booked.
  • Can WOW book the flights for us?

    Definitely! We routinely book and manage flights for our Wanderers. We recommend that travelers get their flights booked through us as this comes in handy when there are issues to do with cancellations or re-routings.
  • How safe is to travel with The WOW Club?

    Your safety is our number one priority. We've designed our itineraries since 2005, keeping this in mind. We always ensure access to emergency contacts throughout the trip.
