Rajaji National Park and Haridwar

D16: Rajaji and Haridwar 12/4/2019 In the city of Rishikesh for a few hours, we enjoy a last one-hour yoga session for 4 euros / 300r. The bridge over the Ganges is still congested.

Mussoorie, Benog and collective taxi

D14: Mussoorie 10/4/2019 It’s our last day at the cool altitude in Mussoorie. We hesitated a little to leave in the morning for Rishikesh but the picturesque (semi) pedestrian street with its shops, the views of the nearby snow-capped peaks and the general coolness held us back.

Both sites are a two-and-a-how drive from Udaipur. They’re an hour’s drive away. As it is hot, we negotiated to leave around 8am instead…

Trek to Condoriri Base Camp

D7: 10/9/2017 First steps beyond 5000m! The tent froze overnight. The pee outing at 1am was cool. Unlike other nights under the roof, we slept properly. We leave quietly along the lake from the left. There is a somewhat steep passage before reaching the next lake. A stop allows us to appreciate the glaciers and…
