Gangotri and Gaumukh are one of the most visited places of Uttarakhand. The area is of high religious importance in Hinduism but that is not the only reason why so many people visit here. It is also an extremely scenic region where tourism plays an important part of the livelihood of the people here. It is very well connected to the rest of the country by a good motorable road. Some people travel here on their own vehicles and some by public transport like us. After our trip to Amritsar, we caught a Bus back to Delhi because Gangotri and Gaumukh were next on our plans. Delhi to Haridwar Our Bus reached Delhi in the morning at around 5 AM. It actually dropped us near ISBT Kashmiri Gate at some distance and we had to walk the remaining way to the Bus stand. We even had to do the daily morning routine at the Bus stand itself since we were headed straight to Haridwar and had no plans to go back home. We walked down to the Haridwar Bus stand area at ground floor and had our tea there. During the summer season, there are an ample number of buses for Haridwar and Rishikesh by Uttarakhand Roadways bus and Uttar Pradesh Roadways bus (UP). I think there was a Bus leaving in about every 30 minutes. We decided to travel by an Uttarakhand State Transport bus that started from ISBT at 9 am. Fair Per person was Rs.240. The first stop came somewhere along the way for at around 11:30 am at a Dhaba where everybody got down to get something to eat. After that, the bus got stuck at Roorkee in a Traffic Jam and took almost an hour to cross it. After a day-long journey, we finally arrived at Haridwar bus station at 4 pm. Har ki Pauri Har ki Pauri is about 2 kilometers from Haridwar Bus stand. We first had a meal near the Bus stand because we were all very hungry by then. We ordered a Thali which starts here from Rs. 30 and then goes to Rs.40, 50, 80, 100, 200, 250, etc. After a hearty meal, we then walked the 2 kilometers distance to Har ki Pauri to take a dip in the waters of Holy Ganga. We chose to walk but you can also a Rickshaw which will cost you about Rs. 20 per person. Once at Har ki Pauri, we saw hundreds of people taking a dip in the river. Water was a little wheatish green but overall, it looked bathable for the devotees. I first allowed my elders to take a dip and then I stepped. I also did informal pooja in the river itself. After enjoying the bath for a little while, we met one of my known persons and headed towards a nearby Dharamshala to stay for the night. We had our last meal for the day, ordering a Thali again for Rs. 100 per person, and then retired for the day.
