"Looking down the Ganga valley from Gaumukh. In the morning sun, the ice that covers a side portion of the Ganges cracks in the warmth. Global warming? Nah! Just spring-time! The main source of the Ganges, Gaumukh, is at the mouth of the Gaumukh glacier where blocks of glacier ice fall into the river and pilgrims take a bath in freezing water to cleanse themselves of all the sins. The sight of Gaumukh is incredible with Bhagirathi emerging out of an enormous caves.
