We continue our journey in Bihar, experiencing some foggy and misty weather. We are seeing a lot of river dolphins, which are very common in the river Ganga. These dolphins are extremely unique, as they are the only aquatic mammals that have developed strong enough sonar senses that they can find and capture food by way of echolocation. These dolphins are considered “blind” because their optic sense organs degenerated over time, along with lens atrophy.
Something that we’ve learned along this stretch of the river is that people prepare foods directly on the river banks, which is unique to camping on these shores.
Next camp is Parmadpur.
