    To the source of the Ganges and much more.

    Stunning Himalayan scenery combined with the fascinating spiritual side of India to be found in Rishikesh and Gangotri.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The time spent at Tapovan, camping at the base of the beautiful Mount Shivling and walking through the snow towards Meru base camp surrounded by spectacular peaks.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    We were very lucky to have Rajeev as our group leader. He is a from the area which made a big difference when he led us off the usual tracks and knew alternative routes when one of the paths was closed due to rock falls. We were privileged to be taken to his home in Barsu where he introduced us to his family who gave us tea and hospitality while it poured with rain outside. A rare, intimate glimpse into local life in this rural location. His English is excellent and he was able to answer all our questions as well as being a good companion within the group and a mean card player.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    The hotels were a little more 'basic' than those usually used by Exodus in this part of the world so be prepared to use your sleeping bag on occasion and wear flip-flops around the rooms and bathrooms.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    The downside of this holiday (and the reason I've only given 4 points instead of 5) was the horrendous traffic jams we encountered. In particular the journey from Barsu to Gangotri. We sat in insane traffic jams for (literally) hours on end while buses and coaches tried to manoeuvre past each other on a narrow road with seemingly no traffic rules. The journeys all took much longer than the trip notes suggest and after consulting with the group, a couple of the cultural parts of the itinerary were abandoned. The hill station of Mussoorie was massively congested with traffic and the noise of horns combined with the awful pollution levels made it particularly unpleasant to walk around.
