Rishikesh, Uttaranchal, India
Pictures of, Images, Picture
My last look at Rishikesh, India before I rode over the suspension bridge and
onto the great Indian sub continental plain. Flat + tailwind = big KM days!
At least I am eating well. Veg (etarian) Thali - but do not ask me what
anything is besides the rice. Usually I don't have any idea what I'm
eating but it's all so good and wonderfully spicy
I visited Rishikesh during an unknown Hindu festival. Entertaining as all
get out. Rishikesh was made famous for Western visitors when the Beatles
came here in the 60s. Since then it's been a magnet for New Age guru-seekers
on the path of spiritual enlightenment.
Waiting in line to leave offerings and incense.
Ladies in their finest.
Rishikesh is on the Ganges River.
You can take rafting trips on the Ganges. Kayaking too.
Steps for bathing in the Ganges waters.
Lakshman Jhula pedestrian bridge.
Near the other pedestrian bridge. There is a very nice river path along the
Ganges in Rishikesh.
