Why do Hindus make a journey to River Ganges?

The goddess Ganga, or now known as the Ganges, was "cursed", but in a divine way, to become a river. It was not really a curse, but a divine plan to bless the earth and its inhabitants. It was said that the goddess Ganga was told by God that after she became a river, she would wash away all the sins of those who bathed in her waters. Ganga then considered this and became worried with this thought: "If I am to carry everyone's sins, who will take those sins away from me?" Ganga was told not to worry. "Divine Saints will always come to bathe in your waters and dissolve all sins from you and your waters." Please see the link below.
