Sailing down the Ganges

Category: Places


Photo and caption by George Mocharko

I caught a photo of these two gentleman sailors on their dhow while traveling the Ganges, right while my boat was coming near theirs on the second day of our overnight trip on the river. The sail struck me as otherworldly, with its deep hued orange and yellow colors emanating forth from a rather plain boat set up with simple rigging.

Location: Ganges River in Uttar Pradesh, Upstream from Varanasi on a full day trip
