balancing rock - mawlynnong (india)


An impressive and precarious naturally balancing rock near the village of Mawlynnong in the East Khasi Hills, in Meghalaya (India).­

With very little effort, I made this huge boulder float in the air.

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­
