The mountain road along the rugged Dhauliganga Valley is not for the faint of heart.­ The road is carved off vertical cliffs, like on this photo.­

The little blue dot is one of the motorcyclists who were riding with me on that day.­

The slippery road is very narrow and literally along a vertical cliff, with of course no guard rails, and occasional rocks falling from above.­

This is upstream from Joshimath, in the valley of one of the headstreams of the Ganges river.­
