Haridwar is an ancient town located on the banks of the Ganges and the foothills of the Himalayas , 200 kms North  of New Delhi.

Located close to the Rajaji National Park which is home to numerous herds of wild Indian Elephants , Haridwar is a treasure trove of Natural Beauty.

The Awesome Hills  had turned into hues of Scarlet in a superb display of  Charming Nature in February at Haridwar.

The picture was taken from the Ropeway leading to the Chandi Devi Temple.

The Mansa Devi Hills across the River Ganges had however donned colours of fawn and brown.

The weather was very comfortable as the skies were overcast and a gentle drizzle washed the dry and weary leaves of the Flora on the Hills.

The spectacular view of Haridwar from the Hill Top through the swaying trees simply took my breath away.

I felt blessed by the Divine Touch of Nature at Haridwar ( literally translated from Hindi means the “Doorway to the Lord”) .

      1. Yes, and that connection is very important. It helps to maintain the genetic diversity of tiger populations, allows young tigers to disperse more naturally, helps to offset losses from poaching (although strict protection is still required), and more. I shall be writing about this topic in the near future, as I find it rather interesting.
