Hindu Pilgrim bathing at the sacred Surya Kund hot pool in Yamunotri (India)

The hot water from the Yamunotri geothermal springs is captured near the Yamunotri temple, and it fills up several pools where pilgrims can bathe.­

When I was there, the water in the pool was really too hot to bathe, so I did just like this guy: I used buckets to get a hot shower.­ It was so nice to enjoy this hot springs after the long walk up the mountain to reach Yamunotri.­
