The Bhagirathi river in Gangotri (India)

Men are gathering some rocks, probably for construction.­

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.­

In Gangotri, the Bhagirathi river bed if filled with massive boulders that may have been brought there by huge floods or maybe pushed by glaciers.­
