📍Devprayag This place is famous for the confluence of Alaknanda and Bhagirathi. After this join of two rivers the combined river is officially known as the river Ganga. Alaknanda river starts from Alakpuri glacier ahead of Badrinath Dham meets Bhagirathi here. Bhagirathi river starts from Gomukh glacier which is 18 KM from Gangotri temple. This place at a height of 813 meter has high religious significance. Lord Rama meditated here after killing Ravan of Lanka. There are temples and many steps are there to descend upto the water level. Because of Tehri dam at up stream of river Bhagirathi water level in this river is less and water fluctuates based on the discharge of water from dam. There are warning boards cautioning visitors going down to the water level about the chance of rising water level.✨

Ganesha from the very beginning was an obedient child, always ready to carry out the commands of his parents. There's a story in the scriptures that is connected to Ganesha and his loyalty towards his parents.
Once the gods and devas gave a fruit of immortality and knowledge to Shiva and Parvati. Both their sons wanted to eat the fruit. To pacify the situation, Shiva told them that whosoever will encircle the world three times and come back first will win the fruit.
Kartikeya was much more athletic than Ganesha with the large belly and elephant head. Kartikeya took off swiftly, but Ganesha did not follow. Instead, he encircled his parents. Asked why, he said that his parents were the world to him and for such a clever answer, he won the contest.
Respect your parents is the lesson to be learnt from the god of wisdom. Ganesha’s relationship with his parents has been tricky. This is primarily due because of the way he was created by Parvati and by mistake beheaded by his father Lord Shiva. However his powers and wisdom has developed the relationship with his parents into one that is loving and full of respect. An anecdote from Lord Ganesha’s life reflects this lesson.
Wisdom can help us overcome any inherent limitation. Ganesha is shown as a large pot bellied God. Yet he is known as one of the most powerful Gods in the world and has slain many demons. The above anecdote also tells us that we must not fret over our physical weaknesses. It was Skanda’s vehicle and strength that made him hop on and encircle the earth literally. Ganesha could not be as fast as Skanda so he used his wisdom to win the race.! ✨🐘🌍💀🔱🕉👁🌀🐀🎨🌙🐍⌛️🙏🏻✨ artist Unknown

I came across this in my archive today and remembered how I tried to sleep with a bursting bladder that night. The temperature was below 0°c and snow all around our camp. There's no way I was crawling out of two sleeping bags into that numbing cold.
Next morning when dawn lit up the valley, I came out of my tent shivering, struggling to wear my half-frozen shoes. I put my head out; saw this to my left and stood still like a mannequin just staring the whole five minutes.
Seeing the sunrise and the sparkling snow, I felt goosebumps not because of cold, but from the magic right in front of me.
