Mountain road carved in a rock cliff, in the Alaknanda valley, near Joshimath, in the Indian Himalayas.

In the background, the construction site of the Vishnu-Prayag Hydro Power Project power-house. You can see the tunnel adit that will bring the pressurized water to the power house. The dam is a few kilometers upstream, near Joshimath.

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