Since the dawn of humanity, Ganges Ganga the sacred river of India, born in the higher Himalayan realms, has inspired the imagination of mankind. In this book, the author invites us on an initiatory voyage to the sources of the revered river at Gaumukh, passing through the principal holy cities of Uttaranchal (Haridwar, Rishikesh, Gangotri, Badrinath) and following the prestigious junctions where the powerful affluent mix with the venerated river. A crowned path in the Garhwal Himalayas, seized within a cosmic time of myths and mythology, symbols of an eminent age that form the plinth of a modern India.

This book is a metaphorical voyage where words lend to images in an enchanting presentation of these high recesses of reverence and spiritual fervour.
