    Daśaharā & Vāruṇī are the rarest occasions to take bath in the Gaṅga.

  • Caitra kṛṣṇa trayodaśī is referred to as Vāruṇī tithi. A bath in the Gaṅgā on this day is considered equivalent to taking bath in the Gaṅga for a 100 solar eclipses. It becomes Mahāvāruṇī if Śatabhiṣā star is in the ascendant on that day & Mahāmahāvāruṇī if the both the tithi & star are obtained on a Saturday.

Ganga is holy river, you can take holy bath in it throughout the year specially brahma Muhurta is considered the best time to take a pilgrimage bath though but Kumbh and Ganga Dussehra days are the best time to take bath.
