At Gangotri climate is very unpredictable, but we were lucky to have open sky and pleasant climate. Here the river is very cold and you can’t direct go into the water and don’t dare to do that.
Excessive exposure to the cold can lead to cold stress, which can cause frostbite. The most serious medical condition caused by the cold is hypothermia, which occurs when the body loses heat faster than it can produce it, and can cause death if not brought under control.
So, go slowly into the water and get formalized with its stream and keep your body active to generate heat. We filled our WATER CAN to carry at home as it is tradition to keep Ganga River’s Water at Home for pooja. Here you see very scared stones around the temple and there are some ancient stories about them.
