IMPORTANT TRIP ADVISORY:

The GANGAJAL (water of the Ganga) is traditionally claimed to have bactericidal, health promoting, non-putrefying and purifying properties. The aesthetic and religious value of the natural ecology of the Ganga and of the Himalaya is also invaluable. All great religions, explicitly or implicitly, accept the natural eco-systems which sustain healthy life and provide various essentials of life freely to masses to be sacred and invaluable. We must not allow our development activities to deprive the masses the various invaluable services they have been getting freely since ages from the Himalayas and from the Ganga and its tributaries: it would be highly unethical. We must not allow, in the name of development for the common people, our greed for wealth and lust for luxuries to deprive the masses the invaluable essentials of life such as pure air, water, soil, sun light, natural manure, medicinal plants, etc. which they have been getting freely from nature since ages.

 

Clean Ganga-Never ever litter near to Ganga. Dispose your waste properly. Do not clean your clothes or any belongings in and around Ganges
