A travel blog entry by valetroy


Up at 5am and on the way to the ghats by 5.30. Today's guide was very aloof. Saw the sun rise over the Ganges and took loads of photos, which I hope look picturesque but just seemed squalid.

Rishikesh - the Ashram

The following morning, 9 January 2014, we were back on a plane to Delhi and then, with much reluctance and dread, boarded a train to Hardiwar.
