Snapshot: Panorama of Alaknanda and Mandakini Rivers at Rudraprayag

24 May 2013

Sunrise at Rudraprayag where the Mandakini River joins up with the Alaknanda and together they flow down to form the Ganga after merging with the other three headstreams of this most sacred river in India. The rivers originate from glaciers further upstream and are still thick with their sediments.

It’s good to be riding in the mountains, climbing up and down on small, narrow roads. Almost feels like I’m back in South America, particularly Bolivia and northern Peru, but of course, the towns are more frequent and busier 😉
