The Gangotri Ghats on the Bhagirathi river (India)

The Ghats are steps on the river side where Hindu pilgrims take they holy bath.­

This was the early spring, so the river was still low.­ Later in the season, the warmer weather would melt the snow and ice of the glaciers and the water level would rise a lot.­

Gangotri is an important Hindu pilgrimage destination on the Bhagirathi river, high in the Himalaya mountains.­ The Bhagirathi is one of the headstreams of the Ganges river.­
