The Char Dham Yatra

In the very northern parts of the Indian state of Uttaranchal, near the Tibetan border, is the source of the Ganges known as Gaumukh, the "cow's mouth". Every year thousands of holy men, pilgrims, and tourists complete the trek up in the Himalayan mountains to witness the origin of the river that has such gigantic significance in the lives of many Indians.
