When he died, his brother decided he would come to Sonepur to do the ceremony and  throw the body in the Gandak river on Kartik Purnima day, as a Sadhu can't be cremated. We drove the body in the middle of the river before letting him go. In the background, a fisherman and the Holy Ganga.

Five sadhus I met in Gaumukh. they are coming down from the sources of the Ganges.  You can see the double summit of the Baghirathi in the background.  It's part of a national park, well preserved, beautiful.
