We spent a few days in Rishikesh, of Beatles/Maharishi fame
Stalls outside a temple
Cool cow graffiti
Shadows at sunset
View from the bridge
Monkey sentinels on the bridge. Very cool – but after hearing stories from two people who had been bit by monkeys in India, it was a bit nerve wracking to pass within swiping distance of them. 😉
Beautiful Ganges and mountains
Cheeky monkeys trying to break into a temple
We left Rishikesh, traveling by bus from Haridwar to Kashipur, and from Kashipur on to our next destination, Ramnagar.
Waiting in the bus station in Haridwar
The reason for going to Ramnagar was access to the Corbett National Park, a large reserve for tigers and many other animals. We didn’t see any tigers on our safari, but enjoyed it very much none the less. 🙂 Pics from the jeep safari:
Spotted deer crossing the stream
Termite hill against a tree. These hills were everywhere. Apparently they double as bear buffets.
