Laxman Jhoola, the suspended bridge over river Ganga at Rishikesh swayed to the rhythm of commuters’ footsteps. The green, unhurried waters of the magnificent Ganga looked like a giant carpet, spread out way below!

Garhwal Himalayas experience heavy rainfall in July-August. But to our delight it has been a clear sunny day, and we came across zero landslides on our way up to Govind Ghat. With just a stop at Nandprayag for a dip in the river, we are in at Govindghat in a single day.

Dyed yellow by the June sun, Himalayan butterflies accompanied me inquisitively all the way up the hill to Neelkath. To them, my open jeep was just another drab-coloured flying insect may be, but faster.

I have never seen such high mountains. They are majestic, gigantic and intimidating. These mountains are a part of the Nanda Devi Range in the Garhwal Himalayas. The most amazing thing that I realize here are the electric-line towers situated at places which seemed unapproachable from all sides! How were they put there? How were the electric cables pulled through the towers? Man is indeed amazing!
