Pondicherry: Old Port and Pier

“Only fishermen are allowed on the Pier”, one of two lady Constables who were patrolling the area told me. I had asked them if I could walk on the pier. So I checked if I could walk on the shore around and under it, they nodded a yes.

Himalayan Wilderness

Gaumukh – the snout of the Gangotri Glacier, and the source of river Ganga or the Ganges, deep inside the Gangotri National Park in Uttarakhand. It once resembled the snout of a cow, which explains the name “Gaumukh” or “Gomukh” (which is what the word means in local parlance).
