KLRU Schedule | Ganges | River Of Life

We descend from the foothills of the Himalayas to join the Ganges on it's journey across the vast Indian plains. On the way, we pass some of the greatest and most ancient cities, and witness how the Ganges has influenced Indian civilisation and wildlife for thousands of years.

European invaders used the mighty river as a huge transport route that brought ships, factories and warehouses to the banks of Ganges. And the British Raj left a legacy of railways, colonial buildings and the great city of Calcutta. Magnificent cities and buildings still play host to timeless festivals and rituals - from the cremation ghats in Varanasi to the fire festivals in Haridwar and the ultimate celebration of the river, the Kumbh Mela in Allahabad, perhaps the largest human gathering on Earth, attended by 50 million devotees. Today, one-tenth of the world's population lives within the Gangetic basin, yet, surprisingly, some wildlife still thrives on these crowded plains.
