Water level gauge painted on a boulder in the Alaknanda river bed (India)

See the scale of the boulder on this photo.

I guess if the water level reaches more than 3 meters, the huge boulder would roll down, so they didn't bother painting the top part of the scale!

The Alaknanda river is one of the headstreams of the Ganges river.­
