India, Jan-Feb 2014
Rishikesh is cute, full of hippy types and businesses trying to get their money, if they have any. Nice to see, though, with the temples along the Ganga -- which looks clean here.
The Ram Jhula is on of two pedestrian bridges (people, monkeys, cows and motorcycles only) across the Ganga at Rishikesh.
Huge ashram on northern side.
Lots of monkeys on the bridgs.
Shiva fountain on northern side of bridge.
The street on the northern side (like the one in the south) is a long string of shops and ashrams, mostly shops.
Monkey, cow and even some people on the bridge.
White-water rafting on the Ganga below our hotel window.
Looking from our hotel towards Rishikesh and the hills behind it.
RIshikesh, its Ganga, its hills...
Ram Jhula bridge
Monkeys go everywhere.
The water here is cold.
And as the sun sets over Rishikesh...
Looking upstream, where we will drive tomorrow.
