Photographer's Note

Breathtaking view of one of the streams joining the river Alakananda, on the way to the Hindu holy place Badrinath. In Hindu mythology, the Goddess Ganga descended to earth at Gangotri, the original source of the Bhagirathi before the Gangotri Glacier receded to its current location at Gomukh. The Alaknanda is believed to have split off from the celestial Ganges when it descended from heaven.
