Q. How to reach Varanasi:
Varanasi is well connected by air and train. The nearest railhead is Varanasi, but there are more frequent trains to Mughalsarai, which is 20kms from Varanasi.

Q. Is this trip only for Photographers?
No, anyone can join. We will spend a lot of time taking some great pictures though. I’m sure everyone loves doing that. We have had non-photographers in our previous trips and they enjoy as much.

Q. I have no knowledge on Photography. Will I get some help?
Yes, absolutely. Saurabh will be assisting you all the time. He will help you on how to take some great pictures. So, you will learn while having fun on the go.

Q. I don’t have a camera. Can I get one on rent?
Yes, that can be arranged if required.
