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.
