We had our first view of the Ganga river yesterday during a breathtaking drive on the road to Rishikesh.  We arrived in Uttarkashi after 8 hours of mountain switchbacks and are now taking a quick breather before taking a tour of a local temple.

Monday will see another day of driving across rough country, with roads washed out due to an earthquake.  Substantial rebuilding is going on in the region due to quake damage.

The expedition is off to a great start in the well organized and professional hands of MHE.
