Photos taken in India in 2013

The highlight if this trip was the Maha Kumba Mela Hindu Festival, the largest human gathering on earth, which happens once every 12 years.­

Other regions visited include the springs of the Ganges river, Varanasi, the Konark sun temple.­

See also my photos of Nepal that I took the same year.­

Photos of the region around Joshimath and the Alaknanda Valley (India).­

The Alaknanda is one of the headstreams of the Ganges.­

When I was there, the road to Badrinath, one of the holy pilgrimage destinations for Hindus in India, in the upper Alaknanda Valley, was not opened yet.­

So, instead, I went to explore the Dhauliganga valley, one of the tributary of the Alaknanda.­
