Incredible India - Pt 3: Haridwar

We spent a couple of days in Haridwar next. Haridwar means 'gateway to god' and the place is supposed to be rather holy.

Our group traveled there by car and then took rickshaws to the hotel. And we definitely needed rickshaws because those streets were tiny! We stayed in this amazing hotel right on the banks of the Ganges.

This place had a private ghat for bathing and the rooms were great. I think it used to be a home to a rich family.

We didn't do a whole lot while in Haridwar since the loml was still sick, but it was nice to take a break. India can be pretty hard on a person. Its dirtier, smellier, and busier than anything you expect.
