YAMUNOTRI

 

Yamunotri (3150 m) is a pilgrimage site near the source of the Yamuna, a river sacred to the Hindus. Hundreds of thousands go up the 6 km path each year from the settlement of Janaki Chatti. Most walk up (some even barefoot to accrue extra merit) but some get carried up by others the poor mostly because they are unable to walk themselves, the wealthy mostly because they are unwilling (couch potatoes). The hike culminates at the temple to the river goddess followed by a dip in the freshly melted waters of the Yamunotri glacier.
 

 

Recent years have seen a sharp rise in the number of visitors due to package tourism and higher incomes of the great Indian lower and middle classes. They come from far and wide, driven by unexamined beliefs and a relationship to nature that with its self-absorbed devotion and ignorance of the natural world many postmodern atheists would consider an impoverishment.

A veritable human drama unfolds, combining scrawny porters who slog for 8/day, saffron clad sadhus ranging from crooks, cranks, to mellow potheads, traffic jams and jostling crowds, spontaneous dancing and singing, and makeshift eateries and chai stalls along the rugged mountain path laden with mule droppings.
