Rishikesh Himalayan Trek

With all paperwork and health checks AOK and having four days to spare before we fly home, we decided to take the little ones up to Rishikesh at the gate of the Himalayas. We stayed at the Himalayan Hideaway and good to get fresh air and escape the delhi pollution. Here are some shots from the girls first (and ours) Himalayan adventure on the ganges!

Tomorrow we have arrange a naming ceremony and blessing on/in the ganges with a Swamee, so pics coming up!

  1. The pictures are amazing! You are braver than me trekking around with the babies. Good on you both. Looks like you are having lots of fun and parenthood is coming easy.

  2. These pictures will be incredible to show your girls in about 10 years! Rishikesh is one of our favorite places to go in India. I'm so glad you could make it there,

  3. Where in Rishikesh was that gorgeous villa?

  4. the Himalayas, home of the snow, is the most impressive system of mountains on the earth, and for centuries the setting for epic feats of exploration and mountain climbing / treks.
