Garwhal Himalayas

The stunningly beautiful Garwhal Himalayas are found in the North West Indian state of Uttaranchal, famous for the source of the holy river Ganges at Gormukh, for the holy towns of Haridwar and Rishikesh and the hill station of Mussourie.

 Rishikesh is a world centre for yoga, a bustling tourist centre, and the place where the journey into the Himalayas begins for the many Sadhus and pilgrims travelling to the shrines at Kedarnath, Badrinath and Gangotri.
