Project Description

INDIA – HOLI FESTIVAL & VARANASI

PRELUDE

Varanasi is the most popular pilgrimage point for the Hindus and one of the seven holiest cities. It is situated on the banks of River Ganges, which is believed to have the power of washing away all of one’s sins. In Hinduism it is believed that those who die and are cremated here get an instant gateway to liberation from the cycle of births and re-births.

Holi festival is one of the most anticipated celebrations in the Hindu calendar. It is a spring festival, also known as the festival of colours or the festival of love. During this period, celebrations were in full swing across India as people covered themselves in powder, threw flower petals and lit bonfires to celebrate the Spring Festival.

UNUSUAL EXPEDITION’s trips are well known for accomplishing a lot in just a few days. We basically pack a lot of contents with different themes in the trip. This workshop will be no different. Locations shots each day are based on daily weather and lighting conditions.
